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.
