About Us

Founded in 2011 and based in Seattle, Washington, Rover is a trusted community where people can find, list, and book neighborhood dog lovers who can't wait to watch their dog.

Whether you need a dog sitter, a dog walker, or daycare, Rover connects pet parents with people who’ll treat their dogs like family. And with over 92% of the population living within a short drive of one of the 40,000 sitters who’ve listed their services on Rover, it’s easy to find a sitter you and your dog will love.

Millions of nights will be booked in 2016 alone.
