Seattle groomers: Want to earn more money grooming fewer dogs on your terms?

We’re looking for passionate pet groomers in the greater Seattle-Tacoma metro area to join Rover. Build your business on your terms: set your own schedule, earn more while grooming fewer dogs, and get booked by local Seattle pet owners with dogs who need grooming. Whether you’re looking to offer grooming in Downtown Seattle, Madison Valley, West Seattle, Shoreline, Bellevue, or you’re new to the Seattle area and not quite sure yet, we’d love to hear from you.


What you get with Rover:

  • Earn 80% commission (vs. 50% commission from most local Seattle salons) and 100% of your tips. Use the extra income to pay bills, fund a trip, or add it to your savings.
  • You get to make your own schedule. Book appointments in your free time or groom with Rover full time.
  • We'll handle the advertising and scheduling, so you can focus on what you love: working with dogs and providing high-quality grooming services.
  • 24/7 Trust & Safety coverage and support. We've got your back.
