About Bob

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**OPEN ALL HOLIDAYS!!!!******
You want a PROfessional dog caretaker- Here I am! Dogs and Animals in general are my life! Pittsburgh Pet Concierge, a professional pet care company: Where all your pet's needs are met with excellence! Your dog will receive 100% continuous personal attention. You think of them as your children, and so do we. My home is a dog's dream. Large, and plenty of outdoor space to roam freely. Completely fenced in, secure, and safe backyard area for outdoor fun. Being a dog owner and lover all of my life, I am knowledgeable in all areas of dog behavior.

I will tailor your dog's day/night to his/her liking. Everything is about them! My home has been built to offer high end dog care. Equipped with a dog door for monitored outdoor access to the 6 foot high gated in backyard. Water fountains, toys, playtime, walk time, massages, choice of over 8 beds or my bed!
Available for the Summer: Our Pool! We offer Swimming for all guests!
*We also have a dog ramp that leads from the deck to the yard for smaller or senior dogs that have trouble with stairs.

In short, I completely understand the need for you to be secure in knowing your child is being taken care of to the highest level of care. I also understand that your child (dog) needs to be made to feel at home, and I do anything possible to put a damper on separation anxiety.

This family business was built on the foundation of knowing how I want my dog treated when I'm away. I saw a lack of qualified and dedicated pet sitting services. I come from a high level corporate job, with a college degree.

Contact me today, and be secure in knowing your dog is being handled by a professional dog concierge.
I also encourage a free Meet and Greet prior to the stay. It's great to meet the pup before the actual stay, and great for you to see the actual environment! But, not required.

Your pup will receive 24/7 Supervision, not left alone. With the help of my Father Ed, there is sure to be one on one companionship. Some dogs are drawn more to males or females, and we can make that happen!

*24/7 Care: Never Left Alone/Unattended.
*Never Left Unattended in outside areas.
*Highly skilled on medication administration & dog illness
*Certified in Canine CPR & Emergency Care
*Fully Insured

It was a wonderful experience for our little Ollie. The staff is very kind and loving and I felt that he was we taken care of!
Bob was great with Carlos! He's a 10 months English Bulldog puppy VERY spoiled. We were out on vacation for 2 weeks and we couldn't have a better person to take care of him. He is very professional with everything and his facilities are amazing with lots of space to run, play and socialize with other dogs. We received almost everyday the Pet Journals with some photos and how Carlos was doing. He came back home more calm and very tired. We definitely recommend Bob and We will use his services in another opportunities.

Great communication. Photo and journal updates. We highly recommend them!
My puppy had the best time! She adapted well, was beautifully cared for and I got a journal and pix sent to me every day. An all around great experience!
My dog is very stressed right now with moving. She looked timid in the pictures. When I got her home she had bloody stool and vomiting. I took her to the Vet and she is on medication and seems back to her old self. I would hope we can work this out as I really need a sitter in the Monroeville area as I travel a lot with work.

We were very comfortable leaving Monroe with Bob for a few days. We received a picture of Monroe and a nice update saying he was doing fine and adjusting well. I would leave Monroe with Bob again.
Our dog seemed to enjoy his time and was well taken care of from the information provided in daily emails. Slightly impersonal experience as we would've preferred to meet the host. Our dog is a member of our family. it would have been more comforting leaving him had we been able to at least speak to Bob, if not meet at drop off.

Very professional and did what was advertised. Oscar was very happy and tired at the end of the day.
Bob was great, highly recommend! Very professional and very comfortable with facilities. Wish he was closer!
His was the first time we boarded our dog in 11 years. The payment, communication, drop-off and pick-up process was all very easy. The dog was there from Thursday morning - Sunday afternoon. We got email updates Friday late morning and Saturday late morning. The dog was just as he was when we dropped him off and he didn't have anything negative to say, so I'm assuming all went well! We'll use Bob K. again if boarding is necessary.

Bob is a great guy with a beautiful house that is perfect for pups! He and his staff are very professional, quick to respond to messages, and always on top of your dog's needs. My dog has an auto-immune condition that requires daily medications and special care. Bob knew right away the condition I was talking about and had no problem taking special care of her. I highly recommend his service.

I will only book with Bob. He was great! My dogs came home happy! Great communication and very simple process.
I am not sure Sonu had a good time or not. When I looked at the place it looks good with nice back yard but picture suggests otherwise. Also, when I asked if Sonu can use the pool as it shows in the picture, I was told it would cost $12 more. Which I said I will pay but it does not look like she played in pool at all. When I went to pick her up Bob did not say a word about her stay or pool. I am not sure Sonu got any walk at all. I would not bring Sonu back here. I was expecting some pictures and videos of Sonu as to how she is doing but not much of that either.

Also, I was not allow to see how the place looks like where Sonu is going to stay. That suggest to me that Pool is not functional.

Previously I paid someone to stay in my home to watch the boys. That fell through at the last minute and after much research decided to give Bob a try. although I wasn't happy to leave my lil ones with ANYONE; after meeting Bob and seeing his home I was relieved. Murphy and Remy were freshly bathed and beautiful when I picked them up. Definitely satisfied!

Was available for me to use while out of town on my way out of town. Not really sure of the home conditions inside as you are greeted on a garage extension from the house. Seemed fine when I picked him up and worn out from playing. Got the pics and updates as promised.

Bob was great! My dogs were well cared for and had a lot of fun. Max can't wait for the swimming pool to be open! We will be back!
We have a pup with separation anxiety who has not done well in the 'kennel' setting, so we decided to try an alternative boarding setting. Pet Concierge was what we were looking for! Our pup was exercised and cared for well. He follows a strict diet and feeding schedule, which was followed as he did not have any tummy issues when picking him up. We will be using Pittsburgh Pet Concierge again!

My two dogs have never been away from home without me. When I am away, I have always had sitters who checked on them several times a day. That is a thing of the past!
I am planning a trip and wanted to see how they would do with Bob so scheduled a daycare. I am sure I drove Bob crazy with all my concerns prior to the big day but he kept reassuring me everything would be OK and IT WAS!
Each dog weighs about 100 lbs. and can be a challenge to control when excited. Also, one is afraid of storms {actually any loud noises}, is an escape artist and a woman with a lot to say so barking when left alone can be a problem.
Bob updated me during the day and assured me they were doing fine. When I picked them up, I was greeted with two dogs glad to see me but relaxed and happy.
I plan at least one more daycare and an overnight stay prior to my trip. Not sure they are necessary for the dogs but I will feel more confident. What a blessing when my friend from Atlanta told me about DogVacay. Prior trips were a problem. Often I returned early or just canceled if the weather report predicted thunderstorms. I sense a new freedom on my horizon.

I was extreme pleased with the way bob and his staff treated my dog and made me feel very comfortable leaving her with them for the weekend.I have recently had a few terrible experiences with some other dog boarding facilities and had lots of reservations but Pittsburgh pet concierge took care of all my concerns and sassy seemed very happy when I picked her up.I will definitely use Bob's facility again in the near future .

Bob was available on short notice. Our dog has anxiety issues but was calm and happy when we picked him up. This dog would have displayed any displeasure with his stay when we picked up. Bob did a great job....Janet
Bob treated my dog with dignity and respect, recognizing his unique personality and needs. He is truly a wonderful caretaker.
Asti loves going to visit Bob and his team. He starts wagging his tail and barking as soon as he sees Bob's home. He can't wait to get in the door! He comes back to us happy and healthy!
This is an efficient dog care operation. I can't directly comment on care or facilities because dog owners are not allowed inside, so I didn't see the facilities or witness care. Our dog seemed fine when we picked him up, so I assume things are good inside. There is a big, fenced-in yard. I assume there are quite a few dogs there, but I'm not sure. I wish I could give more insight. I would use this service again.

our experience with Pittsburgh Concierge was excellent! We've actually avoided vacationing because we've had really negative experiences in the past. It was great to have a "meet & greet" with Bob and found him & his facility to be exceptional. We did also appreciate getting an emailed update which made us feel a lot more at ease. Will definitely be going back in the future!

Very professional! Louis was super tired from playing!
Our dog is anxious and doesn't like to be alone. Bob obviously took very good care of him because he was calm and happy when we picked him up. I would not hesitate to board Snoopy with Bob in the future.
Bob is extremely well-organized, pleasant, and caring. Asti, my Golden Retriever, came home happy and tired (which was nice to see). He also came home clean and smelling lovely after he received such a good bath! Will use Bob's services again soon.

This was the first time my Lacey came home from being boarded that she wasn't mad at me! I am so glad she had such a stress free stay. I will never consider taking her any where else.
Very satisfied! It was comforting to see the daily blog and photos of her.
Awesome experience, I hightly recommend Bob. They were super nice and our Dog looked happy when he came back home, they also took good care of his meds and I received a message every morning with an update plus pictures :)
We had never had to board Max before so we were worried about how he would do. Bob kept us informed via text messages about how Max was doing and then gave me a full report when I picked him up. Max made friends and we would use Bob again when we need to board Max.

Bob was terrific and took very good care of our little dog. Picked her up happy and healthy. Highly recommend.
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood outside of Pittsburgh, and there is a lot of room for dogs to run around. My dogs enjoyed the swimming pool during their stay. Bob and Josh took good care them.
This was a great experience for our dogs! It was their first time staying outside the home and Bob and his staff were wonderful with them. He arranged a meet and greet and answered all of our questions. He also maintained good communication with us while the dogs were there. The environment is very dog friendly and secure. When we picked the dogs up, they were happy and in good spirits. All in all, a great experience and we look forward to using Bob again in the near future.

I was very comfortable with the care Bob gave my 2 dogs. They were happy and healthy. I would strongly recommend Bob.
Bob K's home was extremely dog friendly ! In front of the house on the driveway was a long dog run lined with fake grass or astro turf . The dogs seemed to love it . Bob was very congenial and Georgia was so bouncy and happy when we came to pick her up!

We had a wonderful experience with Bob! He was very nice, knew exactly what questions to ask and was comfortable dealing with our 9 month old pug. Everything was very clean and well set up, and our dog Bentley had a great time playing with his new friends. We would definitely go back again when we are in town. I would highly recommend Bob to anyone looking for a great host who your dog will love.

I moved to an area with no daycare boarding options, only kennels. We tried it once, and it was a nice kennel but not how I prefer to board my dogs, after the daycare they used to have.

I was traveling through Pittsburgh on business, and needed to find someplace adequate for my dogs for four days. I was worried about just choosing someplace off the internet, especially where I lived too far away for a meet and greet. I was dropping them off blind.

I remember reading somewhere on his pages that Bob treats PPC like he's running NASA, in terms of planning and importance. He asked me detailed questions about my dogs, and had me fill out a profile for them, with everything from any aggression issues, to medications to tricks to what time they like to eat and sleep. His attention to detail, and consistent response of "Whatever you want! Whatever makes you comfortable while you're away!" reassured me greatly.

His house is set up wonderfully, very secure and safe, with indoor and outdoor play and hangout areas. My male dog is a daycare pro, and when we got out of the car, he started pulling and wagging like he hasn't done since the last time he went to "school." He knew exactly where we were, and he could tell it was a good place. My girl had never been, and was a little nervous and skeptical, but settled in quickly. They took to their caregivers immediately, and I felt okay leaving.

The whole trip, I got text updates, pictures of happy dogs, an offer of grooming! I got my dogs back happy, tired, and smelling like flowers with trimmed nails. They'd made friends. It was perfect, and when we next come to the area, we will absolutely board the dogs with him. Mowgli and Scarlett say, thank you!

I was very lucky to find such a wonderful host for Eva (9mo. old Vizsla) as Bob. Picture updates were great! Would highly recommend to anybody looking for puppy daycare or boarding. Had a wonderful experience all-around!
My pets had a wonderful vacation. Bob called each day to update us which was wonderful. We enjoyed our time away without worrying about our babies. We will definitely use Bob again!
