Rover Dog Sitter
“I could pick the jobs that I wanted to take! There was no obligation to the number of jobs to keep your profile active. There is no minimum balance needed to transfer money out and I set my own rates. While there are a plethora of sitters in my area, I had no issue finding jobs, even in the beginning when I did not have any references on my profile. During the summer I constantly had to turn jobs down because my schedule was completely booked. I now have clients that I sit for regularly.
Personally, I prefer to house sit with the dog. While my clients were away, I stayed in their home and looked after their pets. This allowed the animals to feel more comfortable and ensure around the clock care. I was able to maintain my daily activities like school and sports while earning money by hanging out with animals!
Other services I provided were walking and "day care". I come and walk dogs for 30-60 min, and if the owner is out for longer, I take their pets to the dog park or play with them at home.
Sitters AND owners are vetted through the website and as a young woman, I was never concerned for my safety while meeting new clients. The company provided excellent support/customer service and the experience as a whole was easy and enjoyable. ”
