The 5 Best Dog Boarding Companies in Dubai

The 5 Best Dog Boarding Companies in Dubai

There are instances when we cannot bring our beloved pets with us for long trips. If you’re gone, who would take care of your furry companion?

Well, this is where dog boarding companies come in. These establishments allow owners to drop their dogs off for a certain period of time. 

In these facilities, dogs are fed, walked, and taken care of by the staff– essentially being your “replacement” for a set number of days. Check out our list of the top dog boarding companies in Dubai so you’ll know where to take your doggos on your next trip!

How Much Does Dog Boarding Cost

Dog boarding fees are dependent on the kind of amenities or rooms that establishments offer. We’ve taken a look at the estimated costs for booking an accommodation for your pupper. 

We’ve separated the costs in terms of boarding type. These can range from luxury suites or rooms that are so well furnished that they look like mini human homes.

On the other hand, there are also regular suites which are uniformly sized and designed rooms for your dog to sleep and rest in. These are usually cheaper, as they’re not usually designed to look like a home, merely a comfortable resting place for your dog. 

The estimated costs are presented in the table below:

The Best Dog Boarding Companies in Dubai 

Here are the following criteria we’ve assessed the companies with: 

Facility – Is the location safe and clean for your pet? Do they provide a wide area for your pets to play and go around during the day? 
Pricing – We’ve rated these companies based on how much value you’ll be getting for the money you spent on. We also considered if you can get a cheaper option of their services elsewhere. 
Special Services – This is where we consider if they provide additional activities to help ease your dog during boarding, or other alternative services for your dog during its stay. 
Customer Service – Of course, you’ll get worried while your pet is with the boarding company. To check up on them daily, it’s vital that the company has a staff team that easily responds to inquiries and is easy to speak with.

With over ten years of handling pet-related services, Woof Pets Services has expanded its location to further accommodate its growing clientele. 

Aside from dog boarding, the company also offers services such as grooming and daycare for your good puppers. 

When it comes to facilities, let it be known: this company has a huge place. With two branches, the company has obtained a 50,000 square foot location in Al Quoz, aside from the original 5,000 square foot place in Dubai. 

The facilities are wide, which is perfect for your dog as it runs around during the daytime. We noticed, however, that the indoor and the outdoor areas seem a little…barren. 

There are not a lot of toys or other pet trinkets that they can move around in though. There are just wide open spaces to run around and play with their fellow companions. 

The company also has a huge parking space– which is nice. No need to worry about where you’ll be parking when visiting their location! 

Woof Pets Services does not have a lot of variety when it comes to lodging. Considering that they are only offering a constant fee per night, the lodgings are uniform for all pets who will stay in their establishment. 

Now, let’s talk about rates: the company offers fair pricing for boarding. Their rates change depending on how long your pets will stay with them. 

Prices range from 105 AED to 115 AED. Pretty okay pricing, considering the added perk of wide facilities for your pet to play in during the day. 

Unfortunately, aside from access to indoor and outdoor daycare facilities, the company doesn’t offer special or additional services for patrons who avail of its boarding services. 

Moreover, the company does not provide a live viewing or webcam service to keep up with your pets. 

However, overall, Woof Pets Services is a company you should check out for its fair pricing and wide facilities. 

Pros

  • Allows test runs to let pets be accustomed to the place before boarding
  • Big parking
  • Fair pricing

Cons

  • Has a late pick-up charge
  • Few special services offered for boarding

Customer Reviews: 

Clean and Well Maintained Area, Reasonable Pricing 

“Woof was recommended to us by daughter’s friend who said their experience there was good. Our toy poodle Leo always needs one of us around all the time. He is never left alone. We  dropped him at woof for 2 hrs the first time. We would drop him maybe once in a week for 2 to 3 hrs so he can meet other dogs. But now we realized that  Leo loves going to woof. He gets so excited on the drive there and wants to jump out of the car by the time I park the car.  So he goes at least twice a week for few hours.  The place is so clean and well maintained. Staff are so friendly and professional. We do get video and pictures updates about Leo’s time there. He has also spend time in their boarding for couple of nights. The price is also very reasonable .Overall good dog care and dog hotel.” – Liza Rohan

Urban Tails Pet Resort is a contemporary, specialized pet accommodation and care facility. Established in 2010, the company has a decade of handling different pet breeds. 

The company is structured and designed like a full-on hotel and resort. The facility has various suites available for customers. 

In addition, the company also has a pool where your puppers can happily swim during their stay! 

We also noticed that the resort’s indoor and outdoor daycare areas are wide. Not the biggest we’ve seen so far, but enough for the animals to roam around and have fun with. 

What makes Urban Tails Pet Resort a cut above the others are the different boarding rooms or suites they offer to their customers. 

The rooms come with a plasma TV and an in-room webcam, so dog owners can constantly check up on how their beloved pets are doing. Prices range from 140 AED to 230 AED per night. 

While expensive, what we like about their rates is the special services they offer alongside them. The suite rates include free daycare playtime and food. 

In addition, the company offers a complimentary spa treatment for the puppers who stay for four nights or more– that’s nice! 

When it comes to customer service, the resort has its staff always on hand to watch over the pets in their care. In addition, the staff makes sure to know the individual requirements of each guest, to fully cater to them during their stay. 

When it comes to updating their guest’s owners, the company provides a live webcam feed of their pets. In addition, the company also responds fast and efficiently to any inquiries or questions their customers might have. 

Overall, regardless of its high rates, Urban Tails Pet Resort is certainly a dream dog hotel destination for your pet. We recommend booking your furry companion here if you have the budget for them! 

Pros

  • Free complimentary spa services
  • Rates include free food and playtime
  • Multiple indoor and outdoor playtime areas
  • 24 hours live webcam

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Requires advanced booking for peak periods

Customer Reviews: 

Quality and Safe Services

“We started sending our dog Bailey around 3 months ago after she had been a regular attendee at another popular place in Al Quoz. I can’t believe the difference in her. The quality and safety that Urban Tails provides is second to none! The place is lovely, doing a tour is a must! It’s so clean, with genuinely caring staff that no what they are doing and will make you feel welcome. The play groups are small (one of the many reasons we left Al Quoz) and they really learn what is best for your dog so they can  get what they individually want and need from their day. It took Bailey a few weeks to get in the swing of things but since then she has come on heaps and watching her on their cameras being so well cared for just makes me wish I had found them sooner. Bailey will see you soon, thank you for all her care.” Harriet Wilkins

My Second Home is a pet recreation, boarding, training, and grooming company that was established in 2015. The establishment is marketed as a luxury pet resort spa that can hold over 185 furry guests. 

What we like about this company are their facilities. Their main location, which is in Dubai, spans over an equivalent of 18 tennis courts– that is huge!

The facilities here are the real deal. The resort has the world’s largest indoor Dog Park and free play area. 

In addition, the establishment also offers a pool, a training academy, and more. For dog owners who will board their pets here, they will certainly be entertained by the wide and various play areas during their stay!

Another great thing about the company is how they treat their guests. The company makes sure to split their guests into groups depending on their size, attitude, and temperament to facilitate a fun and peaceful experience for them.  

When it comes to their boarding suites, the resort offers different sizes and variations. We’d like to take note that their rates are on the expensive side, with prices ranging from 150 AED to 500 AED. 

The suites are very well furnished, with some designed to look like a mini home for your pet. In addition, the suites also come equipped with flat-screen TVs– luxurious indeed!

For clients who are interested in booking their accommodations, we’d like to point out that you’re required to make a 50% deposit. 

When it comes to customer service, the company provides webcam access for the dog parents. No need to worry about your pets should they stay here, as you can get a live feed on their shenanigans in the resort. 

The company’s staff are also loving and caring for their guests. Customers cite their efficient and fast response as a great thing about the company.  

The staff responds as soon as possible to answer inquiries. In addition, they also provide further updates through pictures and messages, aside from the webcam service. 

Pros

  • Customizable boarding rooms
  • Suite variety
  • Separates big and small dog breeds
  • Has webcam for live viewing

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Requires 50% deposit for bookings

Convenient and Flexible

“If I could give this place 10 stars, I would! We have been happy customers of MSH Dubai since our dog Atheena joined our family in 2017. It has been over 3 years of great service and trust. Atheena loves MSH so much, that she runs to the caregivers everytime they come to pick her up. We have tried several different doggy daycare/boardings but there is a few things which stand out at MSH:

1. Extremly flexible with pick-up and drop-off

2. Very convenient and easy to arrange her daycare or boarding (all over WhatsApp)

3. Everytime she checks-in for her stay, the professional team sends me pictures in case they find something unusal.

4. Very loving and professional staff, they truly care. My special thanks goes to Sue and the entire front-desk team but also to all the staff at the back who are in direkt contact with Atheena. There must be a reason for her excitement when she sees those green t-shirts ;-)” – Gioia Valli

Spot! is a New York-based dog care company that established a branch in Dubai in 2018. 

If you’re looking for good accommodation for your pets at a cheap price, then this establishment is the one for you. 

When it comes to facilities, Spot! has a wide area for playtimes. When it comes to the boarding areas, everything is uniformly designed. 

The facility for their sleepovers or boarding is quite… small and bland-looking. Certainly functional and comfortable, but out of all the rooms we’ve seen in the market, Spot’s rooms are certainly not the prettiest. 

One of the things we liked about Spot! is their boarding rates. The company charges 99 AED per night. In addition, they do not have an extra charge during peak seasons, which is fantastic, if we say so ourselves. 

Unfortunately, the fee does not include food. Make sure to bring enough food to last for your dog’s stay in the location. 

During your pet’s stay in this establishment, the company encourages them to socialize with other guests through playtime. Don’t worry about your pet mingling in with the wrong crowd, as the company makes sure to evaluate all their guests. 

This is done to separate their guests by size and temperament during daytime activities to facilitate a peaceful and fun environment for them.   

Unfortunately, aside from the free playtimes during their stay, the company doesn’t provide other special services for guests.

When it comes to customer service, the company makes sure to update its clients through daily reports via images or videos. The staff is always quick to answer any inquiries made by owners of their guests. 

In addition, the company is also known to be flexible when it comes to booking. They can usually take last-minute bookings and change booking periods– which is great! 

Pros

  • Price
  • Wide areas for playtimes

Cons

  • No live viewing service
  • Does not provide food

Daily Reports and Quality Service

“I am very picky when it comes to where I leave my dog. What I am looking for (normally) is safety, for my dog to be treated like a part of the family (i.e. getting lots of cuddles), being allowed to play quite a lot (my dog is very very playful), safety, responsiveness and a degree of flexibility when it comes to picking the dog up.

Spot offered all that. They provided daily reports, so I knew exactly how my dog was doing, I could see my dog was having fun time playing as well as being cuddled.

If you are looking for a place to leave your dog, I do recommend visiting their website to check the facilities. We are definitely staying there again.” – Anja C.

Dog House Pet Boarding and Day Care is a company that ensures to make their furry guests feel at home even if they’re away from their actual houses (and their loved ones). 

The company has good sizes for their indoor and outdoor daycare facilities. It isn’t the biggest that we’ve seen, but it’s enough to keep the puppers entertained and energized during their stay. 

The company makes sure to put protection, such as anti-slip matts to protect their guests paws and joints. In addition, they make sure to clean up the environments to avoid any unwanted incidents for their guests. 

When it comes to the actual boarding units, the company provides two options: a regular room, which is an honestly plain-looking room (that can be customized per request) and a larger, family room for two dogs to room together. 

The company charges fairly for its boarding services. Boarding rates start from 105 AED to 120.75 AED for the regular rooms. 

For the bigger, family rooms, prices start from 120 AED to 135.75 AED. The company charges different rates depending on the room and the size of the dog that will be boarding in that room. 

We’d like to point out that food is not included in their rates. You have to pay extra if you’d like for the company to provide food for your dog during its stay. 

Aside from providing daycare services for boarding customers, the company doesn’t offer any other extra services. Considering the price they charge, this is quite understandable. 

Now, let’s talk about customer service. Dog House has a staff that is available 24/7 to keep watch and take care of your beloved furry companions. 

In addition, they also provide daily updates on their guests through videos and photos. The staff is noted to respond efficiently to questions and inquiries by the parents of the dogs under their care. 

Pros

  • Affordable prices
  • No deposit required

Cons

  • No live updates
  • Extra charge for dog food

Customer Reviews: 

Responsive Staff

“Amazing daycare who care for the dogs like they are their own. Our rescue pup Lola was initially shy and uncertain about being around other doggies and people, but after a couple of sessions at Dog House, she was part of the pack!

The team are super responsive while Lola is in their care and always provide us with pictures and videos of her living her best life.” – Hannah Warman
