SPREAD THE WORD: Tell friends, family members, coworkers, etc about your new business and have them recommend you. Post a link to your profile on your social media accounts or craigslist (if it’s allowed in your area… anything with Rover links is disabled here). See if you can post fliers at local pet shops.
Also know, is it hard to work for Rover? It’s pretty easy work but make sure you know how long people expect you to be there for a day while you’re sitting because it can get a little ambiguous. Since the sitting fees are per night, if someone asks you to keep watching their dogs the rest of the day the job ends you don’t get paid for that at all.
Also, how long does it take for Rover to hire you? 2 answers. It takes about maybe 3 days to be hired. Almost no steps apart from registering and answering a couple of questions. They do not run any background checks, travel to your home to make sure you are able to accomodate pets safely.
Likewise, is it hard to make money on Rover? Rover takes a percentage of your income, which makes it hard to be competitive with local facilities while still making enough to get by. You really need to be looking at 2-3 dogs a night in order to make this a solid source of supplemental income.
Furthermore, is it hard to get clients on Rover? 3 Answers. Hi Paige – welcome to Rover, getting those first clients can be tough at times so hang in there. Here are my recommendations: Your house sitting price is at the high end for other sitters in your area, check them out by doing a search. Sitters with lower rates are getting the clients.

Essentially, put the effort into making an appealing profile, get testimonials from friends/family members, and put the word out about your business. I agree with Sarah that you should consider lowering your rate until you’ve had a couple reviews.
Can you trust Rover dog sitters?
Rover is a network of sitters, and while they do conduct background checks, they are for criminal purposes only and do not indicate how well the sitter will treat your pet. It’s your responsibility to do your own due diligence, and if you’re still unsure or uncomfortable, consider taking your dog to a kennel instead.
Should you tip Rover sitters?
TIp is not expected, but greatly appreciated. Everyone who works with a broker like Rover, Lyft, Uber etc etc gets about 20% of their earning taken by them. Tips are always appreciated and the sitter will go over and above when you book her again 🙂 Tipping is not required but it is much appreciated by the sitter.
