Dog Sitting Rates on

How much does booking a dog sitter on Rover cost? The cost varies, but in 2015, an average night of dog sitting booked through was $24.79.

Costs typically increase during busy seasons, like the summer months and the holidays. They also vary across the country. Dog sitting rates are highest in large cities like New York ($31.05/night), San Francisco ($30.87/night), and Los Angeles ($28.53/night). Dog sitting rates are much cheaper in rural areas, where rates can be as low as $10/night.

Rover makes it easy to connect with pet sitters and dog walkers who offer dog boarding, dog walking, house sitting, or doggy day care. Pet sitters and dog walkers set their own rates, so you can choose to pay a little more for a sitter with extensive dog sitting experience, or pay a little less to give a novice with passion a try.
