Drop off your dog at your sitter's home in the morning, and pick them up in the evening.
“I highly recommend booking with Josh. We've done a few day boardings (for a few hours) with a walk and my dog LOVES the visits. Josh goes above with a nice long walk, is always welcoming and kind. It puts me at ease to know my dog is well cared for and is enjoying his time away from me. Josh is always quick to respond.”
“Buster had a blast with the dogs in the yard. He was all doggie smiles when we picked him up! On top of that, I booked for the wrong day and Richard was nothing but nice about it, and completely accommodating. We’ll be back when we come through Pittsburgh again.”
“Monica was great! Communicative throughout the day and”
“Christy is awesome. We have a one year old pup with severe separation anxiety from us. Right from the minute I dropped her off, I could tell she was happy and was going to have a great time. And Christy’s two dogs are so sweet and also helped making our pup feel at home. I received pics throughout the time she was at Christy’s and looked happy the entire time. My bf picked up our pup and said she was so happy and clearly had a great time. I do not see us leaving our pup with anyone else!”
“Patrick! What a wonderful caregiver. I treat my 2 dogs Dodo and Frodo like I treat my own children, and knowing that he was attentive to them made my vacation much easier. I've had bad experiences with caregivers in the past, but Patrick wasn't nothing but great. If anyone is considering Patrick for their babies, don't hesitate! He took care of mine as if they were his own.”
“As Emma’s sister, I have witnessed her exceptional care, love, and responsibility towards animals firsthand. Emma has always had a deep passion for animals, especially dogs. Her nurturing nature and attentiveness make her the perfect candidate to provide excellent care for pets. She has a natural ability to bond with dogs, ensuring their safety, comfort, and happiness. Throughout our lives, I have seen her go above and beyond to care for our own pets, demonstrating unwavering commitment and dedication. Her reliability and trustworthiness extend beyond our family, as she has frequently helped friends and neighbors with their pet care needs.”
“Emily, Thank you for pampering Addie, guiding her through "firsts" (stair adventures and basic commands), and for sharing your home with her. ~TM”
“Had some one cancel last minute and Kailea was able to watch baloo for me. Thank you so much!”
“Brandon was excellent. We needed a dog sitter super last minute, but his quick response made it a non-issue. Our dog, Rebel, looks exactly as we left her. She clearly had a great time with Brandon. Thank you!”
About: Hi there! My name is Kayla and for the past decade I have personally owned 7 dogs and 2 cats. As well as worked with my Aunt who rescues animals from as close to Pittsburgh and as far away as China! I work with her to re-home fosters even though many have become foster fails on my part! Lol I truly love animals and will treat them like they are my very own fur children. You can trust I will take great care and make your pets miss you a little less while you’re gone! I work as a online personal trainer and fitness coach so I am able to work pretty flexible hours to meet your needs! I make my own hours so with enough notice, I can easily move my schedule around as needed. I live right across the street from a park to play in and for potty breaks! As well as a grass pad on my deck that is functional for smaller/medium sized dogs. I live in 3 bedroom apartment and have lots of room to board dogs who are crate trained as well as non crate trained dogs/cats.
“Ryan always had a dog growing up and was a good dog person. Ryan took his dog o walks fed them and gave a lot of hugs, of course they slept with him. Ryan is very responsible and would make a great dog walker”
“Luna had a fun day again with Kathleen. So nice to be able to trust someone to take care of my dog. Luna looks forward to going to Kathleen's place. I get lots of pics and even video updates. She comes home tired from playing in the yard.”
About: I’ve been a pet owner since a child of both dogs and cats. I have experience caring for a variety of dog breeds in professional veterinarian and boarding settings. I have professional and a great amount of personal experience training animals also. I am most comfortable with large animals - GSDs in particular. I’m currently employed as a manager in a luxury market hotel downtown. I am typically available Mon-Tues for boarding. Doggy Day Care is the same. I am available for walking services (within reasonable distances and parking restrictions) everyday of the week, though only during the morning hours Wed-Sun. I guarantee my full time availability to the animals for boarding and daycare. Animals must be vaccinated. I insist on a meet and greet prior to boarding and day care. Given that diets vary from animal to animal, please provide any and all necessary food for there, plus a little extra for emergencies (extra food will be returned). If I feel that a type of leash is not appropriate to handle an animal safely, I reserve the right to utilize a leash of my choosing. Your pets are in a loving and caring home with me - it is safety-conscious and attentive to the needs of the animal. Any restrictions you have are enforced (not on the furniture, for instance). My home is open to your pets with plenty of walking paths and a park nearby. Water is brought on longer walks. Your pet will receive plenty of exercise when boarded or in day care. Multiple walks a day - 2 extended walks and several short ones - plus play time both indoors and outdoors. They have my full attention when I’m my care. I have professional care experience and can care for dogs with special needs.
About: I have experience with all varieties of dogs and am confident handling elders, puppies, dogs with meds, anxious pups, and anything in between! Over the past two decades of my life I've helped care for a number of dogs over a variety of ages, as well as helped provide training. I believe every person who has trusted with their animal has not regretted that decision. I love every dog I meet like it is my own. My schedule is extremely flexible but I am a night owl by nature and prefer non morning walks. I am available during the week and most weekends, and I can provide care in my home with fairly short notice. My home is extremely dog friendly with a fenced-in yard and many toys. I also have a lot of hiding spaces for friends that need time to adjust. My partner and I currently live in a communal living space, but we have our own separate living space so there's lots of room to run around. Other dogs live in the home, however, they are all dog friendly and your dog can be kept in my room if necessary. We also have a ton of stairs on our property, so please consider that if that's a concern. Other than that, I have years of experience in dog behavior and strive to provide the best experience I can for your fur friend. I promise that your dog will never be uncomfortable with me!

“Lucy and Matthew are so amazing and so friendly. My pup was in such high spirits when I came to pick her up! I loved that Lucy sent me pictures during her stay. Daisy looked like she was having such a good time!!”
About: I have been caring for animals for over 15 years and have experience with cats, dogs, rats, chinchillas, sugar gliders, horses, and chickens, at varying life stages. I am an animal lover and rights activist and my number one priority is to keep your furry loved ones safe, comfortable, and loved while you're away, as well as ensure you feel secure! I know how stressful leaving your animals can be and I want to alleviate that stress as much as possible so you can enjoy your time away. Although I have/have had my own animals, a lot of my experience with animals has been through rescuing, fostering, volunteering, boarding, sitting, and walking. You can see some of my fosters and in my profile below! I'm currently out of school for the summer (I am in a graduate program for psychology) so I am home more often than not! I have two of my own and their daily care includes feeding, grooming (teeth brushing, etc), and play so pet care is already part of my routine. If youre not comfortable with your baby around other animals, I have a way to separate the back of the house from the front! I care for animals in my home as if they were my own. I have an unfenced yard and a dog park across the street from me. I can crate if need be as well.
“Bengu watched and cared for my dog since he was a puppy and provided him with lots of love. She is very responsible with feeding, walking and playtime and ensures that they are in a safe environment at all times. She always kept me informed of his activities. Peewee enjoyed his time spent with Bengu and was very excited to see her in every visit. I would highly recommend her as a dog walker/sitter as your pet will be very well looked after. -Gozde”
“Charlie took great care of my puppy during a daycare visit. She was very communicative, sent a really cute picture update, and was very sweet about him. I would definitely use Charlie's services again!”
“I am a veterinarian and have worked with Ela as a vet tech. Not only does Ela show love and compassion to all animals, but her medical background makes her the perfect sitter for pets with health conditions. She is kind, gentle, and patient with every animal. Even my rescue dog that can be a little weird with new people loves her!”
“My dog Bruno spent the day with Brian, his wife, and their dog Hanks. Brian kept me updated and sent me videos and pictures of the dogs playing. He was very responsive throughout the process. Bruno had a great time and we will be back!”
