About

Love pets? Make money! Rover is a technology company that connects pet sitters to pet owners who need a variety of services. Founded in 2011, Rover is available in more than 14,000 cities and provides access to more than 200,000 sitters. Some of the services you can provide through Rover include: dog walking, dog boarding, house-sitting, pet-sitting, drop-in visits and more.

Requirements

Must be 18 years or older.

Tips

Offer boarding services as well as sitting services. According to Rover, sitters who offer boarding services in addition to sitting earn double the amount. Dog boarding offers the highest earning potential. Focus on repeat clients. If you can find clients who want you to keep looking after their pets, you’re more likely to be their go-to person. Work the algorithm: answer messages and requests quickly and when you get good reviews. Take pictures of your walking or sitting experiences so others can see the level of care and attention you provide to pets. Offer services for pets with special needs. If you’re equipped to provide puppy care, watch elderly dogs, or take care of dogs with special health requirements, you might be able to charge more.
