If you’re looking to own your own business, a flexible way to earn money, and you love hanging out with pups, sitting dogs with Rover might be perfect for you.

What is Rover?

Rover is an online network that helps connect thousands of pet sitters with pet parents looking for pet care. Services ordered include dog walks, house sitting, overnight boarding, drop-in visits, and day care.

How it works

You’ll create an online sitter profile where you’ll answer questions about your experience with dogs and your availability. You can choose to offer a variety of services, including overnight boarding stays at your home or theirs, dog walking, and day care. Boarding is our most popular service, so sitters who offer this service will get requests quicker than ones who don't. You set your own rates. (Rover keeps a small service fee.) Once your profile is approved, dog owners will reach out to you. Accept which gigs you want, then start snugglin’ pups. As soon as you complete a service, you’ll be paid within two days.


  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • Pass a general background check.
  • Have the latest version of the Rover app for iOS or Android.
  • Experience caring for or interacting with animals.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit.
