Should I tip my sitter?

Booking a dog sitter through Rover will always be cashless and convenient. Your sitter sets their own rates and your credit card is debited when you book. That said, if you’d like to offer them a tip, you’re perfectly welcome to! Just know that it’s never expected or required.

Currently, the option to tip is only available for Rover Now bookings. If you booked a separate service and you'd like to include a tip, please contact your sitter directly.

How to add a tip to Rover Now bookings

You'll see the option to tip your sitter or walker during the review process. Reviews play an important role in the success of a sitter's business, but you aren't required to leave one.

Here's how to get to the tipping section of your Rover Now booking:

1. Navigate to the completed Rover Card and select Leave Review.

2. Select how much you'd like to tip. You can select one of the following:

  • No tip (default) 
  • 10% tip
  • 20% tip
  • 30% tip

3. Tap Add tip.
