I can't begin to tell you how comfortable this trip was for us. As we started to return home, we knew that when we would arrive, all would be in order. I could never express the relief both of us felt just knowing our home was looked after each day, but most especially, that our "babies" were so well cared-for in our absence! Keeping them in their own "home" while we're away is so much more disirable - both for us and them - than the option of a kennel. The "anxiety" that we had felt on our last trip was replaced by simply "missing" our puppies! It was nice to have no worries!

Once again, you've proven to be trustworthy, reliable and conscientious. You were almost too playful and tolerant of our demanding and spoiled puppies because I think they are still looking for you to come by!! We were more than pleased and comforted when we returned to find all was in order - thank you for a service which has proven to be invaluable!

Kevin and I wanted to thank you for enabling us to have our dog, Buster. We both work in restaurants, and work crazy hours, and didn't think having a dog would be possible. To be honest, we were worried about a stranger having a key to our home, but as soon as we met you, our fears were gone. You have always been kind, patient, and understanding.

We would also like to thank you for looking after our cat Heisman. A month into our relationship with you, Heisman had surgery and had to be monitored. It was a huge weight off our minds to know that you were checking on him during the day. Our animals are our kids, and we worry!

Finally, congratulations on the growth of Steel City Pet sitters! We are thrilled you business is thriving, and were able to find Char to help lighten the load. Char, thank you for the notes that you leave after every visit. Our animals have a lot of personality, and we can envision your day with Buster and the cats by your charming notes. Welcome to Steel City Pet Sitters, and best of luck!

Thanks again!

To Whom it May Concern,

I have been a client of Steel City Pet Sitters for nine months and couldn't have asked for better care for my pets. Andrea and Char are reliable and take great care of our dogs. Andrea is flexible and understanding when late requests arise and she always accomodates our needs. Char is compassionate towards our dogs and I know they are in great hands when she comes to the house.

Andrea and Char are always respectful of our home and leave detailed notes of their time with the dogs. Being a client of Steel City Pet Sitters has been a great experience. They are professional, reliable, and the dogs love them!

To Pet Owners Needing a Pet Sitter,

I highly recommend Steel City Pet Sitters and Andrea Longman. I recently moved to Pittsburgh and needed a pet sitter for my cat, Paws. I found Steel city Pet Sitters via their websit, and couldn't be more pleased with their services. I traveled extensively over the past month and felt very comfortable leaving my high energy kitty in Andrea's care.

Andrea mad an initial visit to my home to meet me and Paws. She asked many questions, got to know Paws and explained her services. I was nervous leaving Paws since he was still a kitten - just about a year old, but Andrea sends me a text message during the first visit of each trip with an update on how he is doing. Her visit journals are detailed and always so much fun to read when I get home.

I used another pet sitter in Michigan before my move to Pittsburgh and was happy with their services, but Steel City Pet Sitters takes pet sitting to a higher level. I would highly recommend their services to anyone. I know Paws is in excellent hands while I'm away.

Steel City Pet Sitters is our "go to" business for taking care of our dogs when we're away. We have two terriers (notice it sounds a lot like terror, lol) and they can be a handful, especially when their routine is disrupted such as when we go on vacation. Steel City handles them wonderfully and they seem genuinely interested in the care and well-being of my little furry friends. I have used Steel City a number of times and I've never had a problem with scheduling (they even came on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!) While I'm away, its comforting to know everything is going OK and I've received little mini-videos of my dogs playing outside which helps my separation anxiety. My dogs always seem happy, healthy and well taken care of when we come home, which hasn't been the case when I've used some local kennels. I highly recommend Steel City Pet Sitters! You will be very pleased!

My dog, President Bartlet, is a sweetheart with a cargo hold full of baggage from fear of strangers to the tendency to bark loudly at anyone new approaching. In order to help socialize her and to give her some exercise while we're away, we reached out to Steel City Pet Sitters and found a perfect match.

Andrea and the crew from Steel City have been lifesavers and completely caring for our beloved pooch. They even came through in a major emergency where our dog was lost by the people watching her and ended up at the Humane Society. We called frantically from our vacation and was instantly put at ease when they agreed to pick her up, bring her back to our house, and spend some extra time with her. They cared just as much about her safety as we did and because of that, I can say with no reservation that they will care for your animal like one of their own.

My partner and I stayed at the Fairmont Hotel in Pittsburgh this past weekend with our beagle mix, Fern. We are from Brooklyn, NY where there are many great dog walkers and sitters, but we weren't sure what the scene was like in Pittsburgh. I had to attend a work event and needed someone to watch Fern at the hotel for about 5 hours, and the concierge recommended Andrea and Steel City Pet Sitters. I am forever grateful to him for this suggestion! Andrea was so wonderful with Fern and made everything so easy. She came to us at the hotel, eased our minds, and promptly took Fern on a tour of the downtown Pittsburgh parks. She sent us adorable photos and videos all evening. Fern was completely content when we returned to the hotel. Andrea so very clearly loves what she does. She treated Fern like her own. It can be nerve racking to leave your dog with a stranger when you are far from home, but Andrea made the entire experience wonderful for all of us. She's AWESOME!
