Is Rover free?

Signing up for a Rover account as a dog owner is absolutely free. Depending on what services you choose to offer as a pet sitter or dog walker, you may be charged a small fee to cover a background check before getting started. 

Once you begin earning money by providing sitting or walking services to Rover pet parents, you'll take home 80% of your earnings from each booking*. 

The fees deducted from your rate cover:

  • Your use of the Rover platform to meet new clients and manage your business.
  • Rover's marketing and promotions to attract new clients to the site.
  • Rover’s 24/7 support, including a dedicated team of safety experts.

Rover succeeds when you do, which is why we work tirelessly to help your business boom. 

*If your sitter profile was approved before March 1, 2016, you'll take home 85% of your earnings from each booking.
