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.

Ivana is so sweet and lovely to work with! My cat can be a handful and she rolled right along with it. She sent update messages with pictures and videos, every day we were away without us having to ask or anything. I definitely recommend Ivana for pet sitting!

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.

5 BIG Stars for Matthew! He was so kind and compassionate with our senior pups, and took great care of them while we were away. He sent great pictures, and the pups looked so relaxed. Baxter and Grace already miss you, Matthew! We all appreciate you, and will see you next time!

Jason was awesome! He always responded promptly, and he was very flexible arranging a meet-n-greet and drop off/pickup times. His fenced in yard is great! He played with Callie, took her for walks, and truly spoiled her! He sent updates and pics regularly. I think Callie is already looking forward to her next stay! Both Callie and I highly recommend Jason!

My dog Teddy had a great time staying with Ellyn and her family while I was in another city for a few days. Their home has the ideal setup for hosting, right in a convenient city neighborhood with a fenced yard and dog door as well as direct adjacency to a major park with trails for longer walks and an older dog of the same breed as Teddy for canine companionship and toy sharing. Ellyn was super attentive to my dog and frequently sent cute photos to set my mind at ease that he was happy and being well taken care of. The main thing that appeals to me with this caregiver is that my dog was living with a family who were happy and excited to have him staying there. Ellyn’s husband and children were so delighted to meet Teddy when we arrived I knew he was in a great place. This was my first time using Rover and Teddy’s first time boarding since I adopted him last year. I really didn’t want to use a kennel while I was away but my friend who had cared for my previous dog has moved out of the area and I was having trouble finding other options. This worked out great because it was a family atmosphere with caring people. I would definitely seek Ellyn’s services again if I have future need of them. A million stars! ♾️⭐️???⭐️♾️

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.

This was my first time leaving my pup with a Rover sitter, and Jes made it so easy and comfortable! She sent updates & photos at least once a day, and seemed to be making sure Luna was getting the exercise and stimulation she needs as a puppy. Luna looked so comfortable with Jes when I picked her up, and I was glad to hear all went well! Thanks, Jes!

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.
