  • House Sitting: Sitters watch your pet overnight in your home.

Rover offers sitters and pet parents the flexibility to customize their experience for each service. You and your sitter or dog walker may agree on something different depending on your pet's needs. Before booking a stay, we recommend communicating those expectations ahead of time with your sitter or dog walker so you're both in agreement on the type of care your pet will receive.

Here are some tips on how to find and book a great sitter:

  • Browse sitter profiles.
  • Read reviews from other pet parents like you
  • Contact a few different sitters who seem like a great match.
  • Schedule a Meet & Greet to learn more about them. If you both agree it's a good fit, book and pay through Rover.
