Dog Boarding In Pittsburgh, PA

The Dog Kennel Alternative

Dog owners love Rover's Pittsburgh dog sitters. 285 owners have reviewed sitters in Pittsburgh, giving them an average rating of 4.92/5.


Pittsburgh, PA - often lovingly referred to as "Steel City," "City of Bridges," or "the 'Burgh," depending on your preference - is home to the "Pittsburghese" dialect, city chicken, and Carnegie Mellon University. It is also home to some of Pennsylvania's most-devoted dog lovers.

Pittsburgh shows its love for dogs with many dog parks sprinkled throughout the city. For example, Hartwood Acres County Dog Park provides a wide grassy area for canine frolicking, perfect for a dog with lots of energy. Just be sure to bring your own water in cooler months, as a water pump is only provided in warmer weather. From Mount Washington to East Liberty, dog lovers congregate on Rover.com to offer the most loving dog boarding, pet sitters, and dog walking services in Pittsburgh, PA while you're away.

After all, our sitters don't just show their devotion to your pets, they live it by donating to Rover's "Sit a Dog, Save a Life" program. Because you love your dog. And we do, too.

Book with Rover to Donate to a Local Nonprofit

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in Pittsburgh donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Pittsburgh.
