Jennifer Sybol - Owner of Comfort at Home Pet Services LLC

Jennifer attended Robert University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science Information System and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Marketing degrees and spent many years working in the corporate world.

In 2010, she took a week's vacation from her corporate job to be with her brother, who was diagnosed with brain cancer the year prior, and was again undergoing brain surgery. While at the hospital awaiting news of his surgery, she received a call that she was laid off from her job due to corporate restructuring. Not long after this lay off, her brother was admitted into hospice care. During the last months of his life, he was brought joy and great peace by the amazing therapy dogs who visited him. It was then that Jennifer decided she would do whatever it took to purse her true passion for animals. 

Her first mission was accumulating all the knowledge she could! She did this in part by working at different boarding kennels and doggie daycares in the area. She began educating herself and building her skill set by reading books, webinars, and working with many different dog trainers in the area. The more Jennifer learned and increased her understanding of the animals, the more faults she saw in these kennels and daycares. Jennifer wanted to give back to pets for all they provided to her and her family but knew the kennels and daycares were not the place for that due to the lack of training they provide their employees and the subsequent stress that the pets endured.


She was approached in 2013 to purchase Comfort at Home Pet Services LLC and jumped at the opportunity. As a result of her hard work, dedication and knowledge of animals, she tripled business within the first year and has continued to grow! Comfort at Home Pet Services LLC is the first and only certified pet service company in the Pittsburgh area!

Jennifer worked with her own two dogs to become registered therapy dogs so that they can give peace to others that are struggling in a time of need, just as those therapy dogs gave to her brother when he needed it. Cheerio is a Golden Retriever who is an AKC Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog through Alliance of Therapy Dogs, a registered Reading Education Assistance Dog through Intermountain Therapy Animals, and has also earned his AKC Companion title. Jasmine is a Shetland Sheepdog who is an AKC Advanced Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog through Alliance of Therapy Dogs as well as a Reading Education Assistance Dog through Intermountain Therapy Animals. Sadly, Jasmine lost her battle with bladder cancer 1/7/2019. 

Jennifer is a strong believer in ongoing, continuous education and works diligently to stay on top of new research on animal behavior, health and wellness.
Jennifer is a member of Pet Sitters International, National Association Professional Pet Sitters, and Pet Professional Guild.  She is Pet First Aid and CPR certified through Pet Tech. Jennifer is also an Angie's List Super Service Award recipient for 2015 & 2016.
