Updating Your Availability

You can also change your status to away or choose to only accept requests from dog owners you've worked with before. Here’s how:

1. Sign in to your Rover account, then click here to get to the service management page.
2. Select each service you want to manage, then use the toggle button to set yourself as Away
3. Scroll down and select Save


Editing Dog Sitting Preferences 


To receive more relevant requests, it's a good idea to specify your pet and booking preferences. Here are preferences you can set and manage from your account:

  • the maximum number of dogs you're comfortable watching per day
  • pet size preferences 
  • whether you offer cat services
  • whether you offer puppy services (dogs under 1 year old)
  • your cancellation policy

To manage your pet preferences: 

1. Navigate to your profile and select the service you want to modify pet preferences for.

2. Choose how many dogs you can sit at a time, details about your availability, your cancellation policy, and more.

3. Once you're done editing, select Save. You’re all set!
