Frequently Asked Questions:
Why should I become a Rover sitter?
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the love of a dog. Dog sitting is a great way to earn money doing something you love—playing with dogs! It’s a fun way to earn extra income, and is especially suited to people who already work from home—like stay-at-home parents—and freelance gig workers. You can also get your dog fix with house sitting, dog walking, drop-in visits, and even doggy day care. Many Rover sitters consider themselves entrepreneurs, since with Rover you can run your own part-time pet sitting or dog walking business with the support from a larger company.
What are the requirements to become a Rover sitter?
Number one: have a genuine love of dogs! You also need to be able to either have dogs in your home or be comfortable watching or walking dogs at someone else's home, and have the latest Rover app for iOS or Android. Beyond that—sitters come from a variety of backgrounds, from office workers to people with less traditional career paths. Note that your past work experience doesn't matter too much as long as you fit the requirements above. Rover is also great if you work from home or you're a student, recent grad, nanny, babysitter, seasonal worker, entry-level job seeker, retiree, or contract worker. Vet techs, vet assistants, or anyone in pet care or animal care fields can also make money with Rover while building professional skills.
Does it cost anything to become a Rover sitter?
It's free to create your profile on Rover, and you keep 85% of your earnings. The other 15% helps us cover benefits for sitters, including the costs of processing payments and ongoing promotion of sitters on Rover—as well as Rover Support, 24/7 Trust & Safety coverage, and important site maintenance and product improvements.
