What's the difference between a dog review and dog notes?

A dog review allows you to share feedback with Rover Support about a specific pet you cared for during a stay. This allows us to reference a pet's history to ensure safe pet sitting experience on Rover for sitters and their client's pets.

Pet reviews are not viewable to you, your client, or other sitters. Once you submit a pet review, you will only be able to see the star rating. The written portion will only be visible to the Rover Support team.

Dog notes are a great resource for sitters who want to keep a record of information about a dog that they can reference later. Dog notes are only available to you, and you can reference them at any time from the dog's profile.
