Signing up for a Rover account is absolutely free. Depending on where you live and 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. You can contact our support team to find out if the background check fee will apply to you.
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*. (Are you a part of RoverGO? Follow this link to learn more.)
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.
- Premium insurance, which we include with every stay booked through Rover.
- 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 you created your sitter profile before March 1, 2016, you'll take home 85% of your earnings from each booking.
