Are the Rover sitters bonded and licensed?

Hello, I want to know if your sitters are licensed, bonded, and insured? I want to have a sitter come into my home so I want to make sure that back ground checks have been done on these people as well as if they are bonded and insured? I just want to be extra safe having a stranger come into my home. Thank you.

There are badges at the top of each persons profile that you look at which will tell you who has had a background check etc. All the sitters that sign up here do have a 24/7 emergency thing when we watch over owners pets. Refer to the links given by Jessica.
