How do I earn profile badges and what do they mean?

The badges displayed on Rover search results and sitter profile pages are visual symbols of a sitter's love of dogs and commitment to high-quality care.

The most important badges are for Background Checks, Rover 101, and the Protection Package.

 

Get the Background Check badge by completing a background check with Checkr. Rover offers background checks through Checkr as an opportunity to add credibility to your sitter profile and attract new clients to your services. 

 

Earn your Rover 101 badge to show potential clients that you have the skills and knowledge to give their dogs the excellent care they expect and deserve. Just visit the Rover 101 page, take and pass the Sitter Success quiz, and proudly display your new Rover 101 badge on your profile.

 

You might see the Protection Package badge on some sitter profiles, though it's no longer available to purchase or renew. This badge signifies that the sitter purchased the Protection Package to reassure pet owners of their full commitment to quality care. 

 

You might see the Rover Pack badge on some sitter profiles, though the program is no longer active. This badge signified we could rely on this sitter to accept last-minute requests. Today, we have thousands of sitters available to offer excellent care—whenever dog owners need it.
