We had an amazing experience with Josh. Sent frequent updates and our pup was clearly well taken care of at his home. We had a flight delay and had to pick up Teddy very late on a Sunday evening, and Josh and his wife were flexible and accommodating. We will be repeat customers!

Sabrina was able to accommodate my cat on extremely short notice. She is kind and a great communicator. I received lots of pictures and videos from her, and my very shy cat warmed up to her right away! She has two awesome little cats, Marty and Salem, who were great with their strange house guest. I will absolutely book with Sabrina again and would recommend her to anyone

THE BEST is an understatement. Lauren is the absolute best and went above and beyond in every way imaginable. Leaving your pup for any period of time is hard but he was in the BEST hands with her. She treated my pup like her own and I will not consider anyone else but her in the future.

Jes was very flexible with our drop off and pick up times due to our changing flight itineraries. She sent us pics of our pup while we were away, and it was clear our girl was happy as a clam with all the attention she was receiving. When we picked her up, her tail was wagging, as she ran between Jes and her partner for last minute hugs and kisses good bye. Our pup seemed content, happy and tired out from her walks in the park, and she wasn't mad at us the next day for leaving with a sitter. Thanks Jes. JJ can't wait to return!

We are so happy with our dog's care by Michael and his wife while we were on vacation for 2 weeks. Our dog is a nervous dog so they paid close attention to her and she settled in nicely. They sent us updates every day with a photo. We will definitely use them again!

Jess is amazing! She was super receptive to all of our instructions, and gave us several updates with pictures and videos throughout the week. Our dog has some special behavioral considerations, and Jess did everything to keep her happy, healthy, and safe while we were gone. We can’t recommend her enough!

Liz was great with our two mini schnauzers. She took them to daily walks as we requested and seems like they got good daily exercise and play time ? we learned that our dogs didn’t become friends with Liz’s cats but looks like everyone minded their own business so there were no issues there. Liz was also very accommodating and flexible with our drop off pick up times with always a smile. Her family was quite friendly too. I want to let Rover customers know that there can be issues with the app sometimes that the dog sitter may not be able to reach the dog owner (and possibly vice versa) through the app texting due to technical issues. It could be a good idea for the nervous dog parents to exchange phone numbers with their dog sitters. We think that our two dogs had lots of fun with Liz and her family. We appreciate a good dog sitter who enjoys what they do.

Emily and Patrick were very kind and flexible with us when my boyfriend and I needed a dog sitter for a wedding. We were late picking her up and they were very understanding. Our dog and Eli must have had a blast together, because slept the entire next day! We will be using them again in the future!!

Richard T boarded our dog Callie for a week while we were on vacation. He set up a meet and greet at his home to get her comfortable being there before our trip. Each day, he sent us pictures of her playing or resting to keep us updated and set our minds at ease. Our dog is never crated, so we would not send her to a typical kennel. Richard boards the dogs in his home, so she had access to the house and yard, just like she would at our home. Callie had a great time with the other dogs so we will definitely use Richard T’s services again!

Tessa is an absolute gem of a dog sitter! Sometimes I think my Pit Winter loves her more than me haha. Tessa has been a wonderful and trustworthy dog sitter for us on multiple occasions, there is no one I trust with Winter more than I do Tessa. You will not regret hiring her.

Erin’s house is paradise for cats! I was so impressed with all the amenities she has for pets despite not currently having any of her own in the home. My cat was comfortable with her and her boyfriend Paul right away, and she sent lots of photos. As a former coworker of Erin’s, I know she is responsible, communicative, and fun. I would absolutely use her for pet sitting again.

Karen and her husband were very kind and understanding when my dog unexpectedly had stomach problems and caused a mess. Despite this, she really seemed to enjoy her visit and I’d recommend them for watching your dog!

Why book Rover dog boarding in Pittsburgh?

Pittsburgh pet parents want to make sure their dogs are well taken care of when they're away, and that's where Rover comes in. Dog sitters in Pittsburgh will treat your pups like part of their family, and offer them all the comforts of home, unlike a kennel. If you're looking for dog boarding in Pittsburgh, try a Rover sitter who'll care your pup in their own home, offering plenty of one-on-one attention.

Why do dog owners love Pittsburgh?

Residents of The 'Burgh are treated daily to a city full of history, entertaining professional sports leagues, and cultural institutions. Home to educational institutions like Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh - plus cultural attractions including the Andy Warhol Museum - it's often ranked one of the country's most livable cities. So it's easy to see why dog owners love living in Pittsburgh. Plus, there are tons of dog-friendly green spaces and friendly Rover dog sitters and walkers throughout the city.

Which parks in Pittsburgh are good for dog walks?

Referred to as OLEAs, Pittsburgh has many Off-Leash Exercise Areas your dog to enjoy. Take Frick Park dog park on Squirrel Hill - it's a massive 644 acres for you and your dog to explore. There are separate fenced areas for running, lots of trails, and a swimming hole for dogs near Lower Tranquil Trail. Though not quite as large, Riverview Dog Park at Perry North is still a huge park to visit at 259 acres total, with two acres fenced off just for off-leash fun near the Allegheny Observatory. At Bernard Dog Run in Lawrenceville, you'll find a bustling half-acre park under the 40th Street Bridge. There are separate play areas for large and small dogs to keep pups safe and having fun with other dogs their own size. Dogs need to stay on leash at Point State Park, but that shouldn't stop you from spending a day walking its three main hiking trails. It's right downtown in the Golden Triangle, so you can't miss it!

What Pittsburgh neighborhoods are good for dog owners?

Pittsburgh has over 90 vibrant and unique neighborhoods, so deciding where to visit or even settle down can be a tough decision. From S&D Polish Deli to the Pennsylvania Macaroni Co., there are tons of interesting and eclectic shops and grocers in the Strip District, just east of downtown Pittsburgh. If you're looking for something a little more upscale, take your shopping over to the Shadyside area. You can get a dose of culture and intellectual discussion in Oakland, where you'll find the 53-story gothic building that houses the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning. If you need a place to stay, check out the edgy, metroplication chic of the Ace Hotel or Indigo Hotel in the East Liberty neighborhood. Looking for a bite to eat? Head over to Pittsburgh's "Little Italy," Bloomfield. Take a bridge from downtown to discover North Shore and North Side, home to Heinz Field and PNC Park, and be sure to get a glimpse of the larger-than-life Mister Rogers' statue nearby. You can also take a nice stroll down the tree-lined streets of the charming Sewickley neighborhood, or catch an amazing view in Mt. Washington.
