I actually ordered post cards and hole punched the corner and added a few small milk bones and on the weekend I would go to our local pet store and place the cards on the windshields.. I also have the business cards on hand at all times. I was at a birthday party my children were attending and some how got on the subject of dog boarding-great opportunity to provide your card with a $20 free incentive. ! Even at grocery stores, if i see a car with doggie bumper stickers, I leave a post card on the windshield. Word of mouth works good, however, having a card means business! Good luck!


Thanks for the great advice. It hopefully might help get me some clients as well.

Yeah I've started this since Tuesday haven't gotten clients yet either!


Advertise your services using the Rover materials on the site such as the business cards, post cards, etc You get your first 100 business cards free too! Hand these out to your friends, neighbors, vet clinics, groomers, etc.

Only you can know how much to charge. You'll actually have to do some homework by looking at what the market rate is in your area. Look at what others are charging on Rover in your area for the same service to get a ball park range from high to low and start there. I started low and then gradually increased my rate once I got my first review.

Good luck!


You can also post your profile to Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor to drive business directly to your profile. There are links on your Dashboard so that you can post this all easily!
