Managing your walker profile for the holidays

Whether you're hoping to take on more requests or plan on taking a well-deserved break during the holiday season, make sure your walker profile accurately reflects your availability. Check out the tips below.

If you aren't accepting Rover Now walks during the holidays, turn on Away mode.

Turning on Away mode ensures that you don't receive notifications for walks when you aren't available. When you're ready to accept walks, you can turn off Away mode and you'll start to see requests again. Be sure to keep  an eye out for available walks by regularly checking the Requests tab on your app.

For more information on how to turn on Away mode, check out these article for your computer and mobile app instructions:
