How do I choose the right sitter?

With Rover, it’s easy to find the best care for your best friend. Here’s how to get started:

1. Find 2-3 sitters or dog walkers who seem like a good fit. Select the Contact button on each sitter’s profile page to introduce yourself and your dog. Now is a great time to be clear and candid in discussing your dog’s personality, preferences, and any special needs. When you’ve discussed expectations and both agreed that it sounds like a good fit, it’s time for a Meet & Greet.

2. Schedule a Meet & Greet with each sitter you like. This is your chance to get to know a sitter in person and see how they interact with your dog. You can meet at your home, at the sitter’s home, or at a neutral location. If the sitter has a dog too, consider meeting at a local park so that neither dog will feel territorial.

3. Book and pay through Rover. With fast, secure payments and easy owner/sitter messaging, your dog’s stay or walk will be confirmed in no time, and you can relax, knowing your dog is in good hands.
