Austin groomers: want to earn more money grooming fewer dogs on your terms?

We’re looking for passionate pet groomers in the greater Austin metro area to join the Rover platform. Set your own schedule, earn more while grooming fewer dogs and build your business on your terms while Rover matches you with local pets who need grooming. Whether you’re looking to work in Downtown Austin, South Congress, Pflugerville, or you’re new to the area and not quite sure yet, we’d love to hear from you.


What you get:

  • You make your own schedule. Book appointments in your free time or groom with Rover full time.
  • We'll handle the marketing and scheduling, so you can focus on what you love: working with dogs and providing high-quality grooming services.
  • 24/7 Trust & Safety coverage and support. We've got your back.


What a good fit looks like:

You’re a good fit if you love working with animals and have professional experience grooming pets, dogs, cats, or both, at local salons, big box stores, mobile grooming vans, and/or veterinarian offices. Whether you’re a lifelong resident, or you just moved to Austin, Rover is a great way to connect with local pet owners looking for an alternative to traditional grooming.

Groomers on Rover come from a variety of professional grooming backgrounds and previous dog grooming jobs, but share a common love for providing animals with the care they need to be their healthiest and happiest. Our groomers service a variety of areas throughout Austin, including but not limited to: Buda, San Marcos, South Congress, Downtown, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Georgetown, The Hills, Elgin and Bastrop.
