Matthew was wonderful with my little chihuahua. I was nervous my dog would have a hard time warming up to someone new, but he was cuddled up with Matthew by the second day. Matthew was very accommodating & friendly! I will be using him again!!

Michael and Maria were absolutely wonderful with our 9-month old puppy. They sent many pictures and updates during his stay. They took extra steps to make sure he was comfortable and happy. We will definitely book with them again.

It has taken me forever to sign in and leave this review (sorry, Jes!) but we could not have been happier with the care that our puppy received with Jes. When Jes watched our dog while we were on vacation, the pup was less than a year old and a true pandemic puppy -- for the 11 months we had her, she had barely interacted with any people. She took to Jes and Sean immediately when we first met at the dog park. Jes clearly just kind of gets dogs and she won her over immediately. Our dog, sadly, was not on her best behavior at Jes's place. She had a couple of accidents (despite being very well housebroken) and Jes very kindly took it in stride. I should also mention that my dog is a super high energy jack russell terrier, and again, Jes was receptive and expertly up to the task of handling our dog's temperament. She communicated with us daily and sent photos and videos while we were away. Highly recommend. Thank you, Jes, for taking such good care of Heidi!

Liz (and family) provided a very amazing stay for Piper. Proir to selecting Liz as the caregiver, I reviewed the Rover site and reviewed her ratings, then I met with the family first hand. At the visit I felt good about the environment and care that could be provided. Liz even allowed me the opportunity to have a "dry run" of a few hours before making a final decision. When I came to pick up Piper after returning from my trip, she was in very good spirits and was very well adjusted. The next day she did not even give me the "silent" treatment which Piper typcially does after I travel - this was a great sign!!. Liz (and Family) will be my consistent choice for doggy daycare and overnight care when I travel. Thanks Liz!

Thank god...I am incredibly grateful to have found Rachel. I cannot even begin to imagine how I would have managed without her generosity and kindness. A few days ago, I suffered a severe back injury at home and was completely immobilized. I sent a desperate message to Rachel, who immediately came to my aid without any hesitation. Not only did she take care of my dog, Somi, but she also checked up on me with great kindness. Rachel was super accommodating and took wonderful care of Somi, who is now missing her terribly. After dropping back at my place, my dog kept whining and looking for Rachel. This is the first time my dog has ever missed her sitter. Rachel gave her a lot of love and attention. Such an amazing person with a warm heart.

Adam is the best companion and sitter for your dog you could ever imagine. Our dog Auggie spent 12 days in Adam’s home during our recent vacation and we could not be more grateful for the care, love and attention he paid to Auggie. Adam opened his entire home to our dog, got to know him and bonded with him super quickly; he took him regularly for long walks, dog parks, visits to his friends and other dogs, and shared daily with us countless pictures of their joyful activities. Thank you Adam, Auggie and you have bonded forever.

Matt is the best! Our dog absolutely loves Matt and his family. They have a beautiful home with a fenced in yard and it is such a wonderful feeling knowing that we can go out of town and our dog is in great hands. After our last dog sitter closed her business we were afraid we would never find a replacement, but Matt is truly excellent and we can not recommend him enough!

Kristi has watched my pup a few times now and she’s never let me down. She follows the instructions I leave and she provides updates to me during the stay as well. This most recent stay my dog got sick and Kristi took great care of him until I could get home from my trip. She alerted me as soon as she noticed anything and kept me in the loop. She went above and beyond and washed his blankets he’d had gotten sick on. I would definitely recommend Kristi.

Liz did a great job keeping Jojo happy and comfy while we were out of town. She kept us updated with photos and videos of Jojo playing and napping, and gave us updates on how she was settling in.

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.
