Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements to become a sitter?

You need to be 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, kennel 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?

Sitters on Rover can offer dog boarding (watching dogs overnight in your home), house sitting (taking care of your client's dog and their home overnight), day care, dog walking, and drop-in visits.

Why You'll Love Rover

Rover's a great way to make money and meet cute dogs in your neighborhood, but you don't have to take our word for it. Check out what sitters and dog walkers on Rover have to say.

Rover is great because you are able to set your own rates and schedule. If you are a student or have a full time job, or even both, rover is in my opinion, the best way to earn extra income.

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?

Rover, unlike other dog sitting sites, makes it super easy to sign up as a sitter or to find a sitter. Other sites are not as user friendly. I also have had excellent customer service with Rover. They answer questions and solve problems quickly.
