I absolutely love dogs and got tired of having a job that I didn't even like. What's the point of working if you can't enjoy it a little?

What are the requirements to become a dog sitter?

You need to be at least 18 years old and have the latest Rover app for iOS or Android. Beyond that—sitters come from a variety of backgrounds. If you work from home or you're a student, recent grad, nanny, babysitter, seasonal worker, entry-level job seeker, retiree, or contract worker, Rover could be a great fit for you. If you're a vet tech, vet assistant, or in any pet care or animal care field, you could make money with Rover while building your professional skills. But of course, nothing is more important than a deep love of dogs.

How much does it cost to become a sitter on Rover? 

It's free to create your profile on Rover, and you keep 80% of your earnings. The other 20% helps us cover benefits for sitters, including the costs of processing payments and ongoing promotion of sitters on Rover—as well as Rover’s customer support, 24/7 trust and safety coverage, and important site maintenance and product improvements. 

What services can I offer?
