How Rover Now walking works
- Pick a walk time. You can book different walks to fit your schedule:
- Now: Get a walk within an hour.
- Later: Get one or more walks in the future.
Note: Walkers typically begin walks within 15 minutes of the scheduled time.
- Tell us about your walk and your dog. Provide instructions on how the walker can enter your home, where to find your dog and leash, and let us know your dog’s behaviors.
- Receive a free lockbox. Get a free lockbox so that you can get walks any time you need, even when you’re not home. Learn more about how to get a lockbox here.
- We’ll send a walker. Once you submit your request, we’ll send over a trusted walker that matches your needs.
- Pay a flat rate. You’ll pay a flat rate depending on how many dogs you have, the length of the walk, and where you live. You’ll be charged when the walk starts.
- Receive updates. We’ll text you updates when the walk starts and stops. We’ll also send a Rover Card after the walk which will include a map of your dog’s walk and photos.
