Rover is a website that connects dog-sitters with dog-owners, allowing dog lovers to earn some extra cash while spending time with man’s best friend. Rover is available in all 50 states in the United States with sitters across thousands of cities among them. Rover sitters can either home-sit, which requires opening their own home to a pup, or can offer to travel-sit, which means the sitter travels to the dog owners home. Becoming a Rover sitter is a simply as signing up on the website but to increase earnings and clients, it’s best to be verified via Rover’s voluntary background check as well as pass Rover’s training quizzes.


The Rover website is intended for adults 18 years of age or older. It’s free to become a sitter, however, it is highly recommended that sitters submit for a background check at a cost of $5.25. Clearing the background check will add a verification badge to your Rover profile and will give potential clients peace of mind that they are leaving their beloved pooch to a trustworthy, responsible sitter. Additionally, sitters will need to be very thorough setting up their profiles by adding photographs of themselves and their homes as well as references.

How to apply

Rover sitters set their own rates. Most sitters charge between $30 and $60 per day. Rates do, however, vary by city, services offered as well as the number of dogs. Rover retains 15% of the stay fees for use of the website, premium insurance as well as 24/7 emergency support. The remaining 75% of the fee is released to the sitter via Paypal or check.
