Rover Makes it Easy to Get Started

Becoming a dog sitter allows you to set your own schedule and choose your own services, including dog boarding in your home, doggy day care, dog walking, drop-in visits, or pet sitting in your client's home.

After being approved by Rover, you set up your profile with the services you want to provide, your dog sitting experience, and the days you are available. Rover connects you with educational opportunities and continually advertises to bring you more clients.

Earn up to $1000 or more per month doing what you love:hanging out with dogs.

And Rover will help you manage it all!
