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. 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.
  • 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.
