Kristen was fantastic. She's very flexible with the schedule and allowed us to pick our pup up throughout our trip so he could join us at the dog friendly locations. We would 100% use her again if needed.

Kind, quality care for my dog, Max. Mike and his partner were extremely friendly and kept in touch with me while Max stayed with them. They sent pictures of him looking happy and healthy during his stay.

Nelia and Brett were GREAT! We have a very energetic dog and they made us feel so comfortable leaving him for 4 days with their family. Nelia sent me pictures everyday showing us know how much fun Nipsey was having. I know they treated him like family and that made us so happy. We will be having them watch Nipsey again in the future and recommending them to our family and friends. Thank you again Nelia and Brett!

This was our first time using Rover, and Christine made it an unforgettable experience!! Normally we board our dogs, but since we were going on a short weekend trip we wanted to try something different. Christine made the entire process super stress-free. We dropped our pups off at her home, where she let us inside and gave us a rundown of what she'd be doing each day for them (how many times she takes them for walks, where they sleep, etc.). It made me feel so much better knowing exactly where they'd be staying and the details of their care! Christine sent several pictures each day with updates on how they were doing, which made this anxious dog-mom feel at ease. She truly cared for our dogs as if they were her own - she even sent them home with handmade bow-ties for their collars :') Any time we need to go out of town for a few days again, we're booking with Christine!! 10000/10 would absolutely recommend.

Lauren is absolutely perfect for Rover! Her dedication, trustworthiness, and unparalleled love for dogs make her an exceptional choice as a dog sitter. I've seen firsthand how attentive and caring she is with animals, including when she watched and walked my own dog. With Lauren, your furry friends will be in the best hands possible.

We love Kathleen! When I tell you that I don’t give my dogs a second thought when I drop them off…I don’t! She truly cares for them like they are her own. She’s also very flexible if your pick up/drop off time changes. Tons of pictures all the time! We will never go elsewhere. ♥️.

Sebastian and his wife were wonderful to our small dog Daisy. I could tell she was well-loved during her six-night stay. Sebastian sent us a few pictures throughout her stay which showed she was having a good time. We were thankful that Sebastian is very courteous and quick to respond to any text messages. We would gladly book another stay with Sebastian. Thank you so much!

Kara was excellent and graciously welcomed my pup into her home seamlessly! For it being my first time leaving my boy with a stranger, Kara couldn’t have made me feel more at ease. She paid attention to all of my requests to ensure Dunkin felt at home and sent photos and updates everyday. Dunkin thoroughly enjoyed his stay and hanging out with her pup so much it was as if he had went on a vacation too! I would highly recommend trusting Kara with your furry friend!!

Adam gave us updates and sent great photos of our dog. It sounded like she also got to have a fun vacation, cruising around Adam's neighborhood and checking out the cool spots, while we were out of town! It certainly gave us peace of mind that our dog was enjoying herself and being well taken care of. Thanks, Adam!

Tia watched our dog, Izzy, for a week and we are so appreciative of her! We got photos and videos every day, many check ins to let us know Izzy was eating and acting normally. We got lots of videos of Izzy playing fetch and having a wonderful time with Tia and her family! We very much recommend Tia for any dog watching needs!

Adrienne was wonderful with Chico. She is very knowledgeable of dogs and gave me some tips to ensure he was comfortable while being away from home. Adrienne even sent me pictures and updates throughout the weekend, which was such a pleasant surprise. I am truly grateful and hope she will take care of Chico again in the near future.

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.
