In awe of how lucky I was to have Emily watch my dog and best friend. She had us over for a meet n greet and was incredibly kind and thoughtful and Chance immediately loved her. You could tell she was a dog person who would love and care for my dog just like her own. While I’m excited to not have to travel for a while, I hope Emily will watch my boy again. I could tell from the pictures that he was right at home with her, her husband and in her very dog-friendly neighborhood.

Talk about a top-notch animal sitter and lover!! We had the pleasure of Jason and his wife Anna take care of our 'needy' 8 yr old beagle Bo. If I could give 10 stars to Jason and his wife, I would! We had scheduled to leave our dog with him for 5 days as we left for a wedding out of state. Jason was kind enough to meet us a few weeks prior to our scheduled date and he showed us his home/yard, discussed our needs, talked about his animal experiences to ensure this was a perfect match. I left that initial meeting feeling a sense of relief that we were leaving Bo in good hands. Overall, I cherished the daily updates and pics, I am appreciative he took him on walks, he prepared a few meals, gave him medications, and more so, Jason was quick to reply to my texts! I have no doubt that Bo made himself right at home at Jason's house! Once you met Jason, I believe he will put you at ease...just like he did for us. Bottom line, Jason and Anna are truly a hidden gem with all the best intentions! And didn't disappoint! Thank you!

This is the first time Brody has stayed in someone else’s home without us. What a good experience Brody had. And we feel very comfortable leaving him with Ellyn again. He was well cared for in every way.

Kristi took care of our pup for 2 nights and sent lots of pictures/videos showing us how well he was doing. She was very quick to communicate and very responsive to all of his care needs we expressed to her. We also really appreciated how much time she spends with the dogs she watches! Thank you Kristi!

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.

I knew that my Buddy was going to like staying with Matthew when we met for our meet and greet. Matthew got right down on the floor and Buddy felt right at home. He really understands dogs and has the patience to play their games with them. I had no worries at all and I will definitely use Matthew again.

I felt my cat was very well taken care off when staying at Hsing-jung's apartment! Great communication throughout the two week stay and provided many updates. Also were nice enough to pick my cat up from my place making the stay even easier. If I do any traveling in the future I would definitely pick Hsing-jung again!

Victoria was wonderful! She responded quickly to my booking request. She was flexible about the dates I needed, and accommodating when my plans changed. Her own dogs are well behaved and friendly. She has a wonderful dog park close to her house. She took great care of my pup and sent me photo and video updates each day. Highly recommended!

Josh is so professional and caring! He is also very flexible and accommodating. We felt very at ease when we were away. He took our pup for walks daily, replied to our questions with so much patience. Their dog Roo is the cutest little boy, it was so cute to see Roo and our dog interact. We are just so glad that we found them on Rover!

As Casey's manager I can say she is a very dependable worker. She brings a lot of passion and intrigue to all of her pursuits. Casey is notorious in her jobs for bringing an additional level of fun and flare. She conducted many polls with our customers and staff at Speckled Ax. Making just another day at work very entertaining. Her communication is very good and she will excel at coordinating schedules with dog owners and the animals themselves! Additionally, she is an animal lover. And a responsible cat owner for many years. We never go a conversation without talking about the cats, they normally aren't far from her (: She once remarked a goal in life that she wanted to exclusively adopt old dogs and give them the best last years of their life and I really admire her for that ! She would be a great addition to Rover.

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

We can’t say enough about Jes and Sean. They took excellent care of our incredibly spoiled pup. They also provided continuous updates and pictures. Sidney enjoyed her stay - so much so that she didn’t want to leave! Thanks again for everything!

Millie had another great stay with Adam. She has little experience with other dogs as she is very timid from her experiences previous to rescue. However, she had an excellent time making new friends and even going on double doggie walks her last stay.

David is awesome with pets! He's definitely more of a cat person, but as his friend, I've seen him interact with dogs as well, he's always eager to play with them and walk them. I know many cat parents but he's the only one I know that walks his cat on a leash, they look so cute!

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.
