Welcome to the nation’s largest network of 5-star pet sitters and dog walkers. Rover makes finding the perfect Rover dog sitter in your price range easy—no matter what your budget looks like.
Dog sitting rates vary by date and location, so be sure to check out Rover dog sitters near you to see what rates are like in your area. Depending on when you need a pet sitter, holidays like Memorial Day, Christmas break, and school breaks can also have an impact on price.
Why so much variation? Well, Rover dog sitters run their own small pet-sitting businesses through Rover. That means they have their own unique skill sets and set their own dog sitting rates accordingly. More experienced sitters or sitters with special skills like administering medication, caring for senior dogs, and vet tech training will sometimes charge a bit more for their particular specialty.
If you’re not sure where to start, begin by thinking about what you want out of a dog sitter. That way, you’re sure to end up with a sitter who isn’t just the cheapest option, but the very best option for you and your dog (or cat!) Have a shy, finicky dog? You’ll probably want to book someone with a long dog sitting history—someone who’s seen it all and can make your dog feel comfortable. For dogs with separation anxiety, we highly recommend finding a dog sitter who doesn’t have a full-time job or can bring your dog with them into the office. Spending a few extra dollars on a sitter with a specialized skill set definitely pays off in peace of mind when you have to be away from your best friend!
