How do I become a pet sitter or dog walker on Rover?

NotePet sitters and dog walkers listed on Rover must be at least 18 years of age and are considered independent contractors. If your profile is approved, you'll be running your own small business and will not be considered a Rover employee. This gives you the freedom to set your own rates and schedule—and it's important to know when tax season arrives.

Welcome, fellow dog lover! We’re so glad you want to join our pack. You can start your Rover sitter/walker profile on a computer, mobile browser or from the Rover app. Just follow the steps outlined below.
