What are ‘house sitting’ and ‘drop-ins’ ? Can I offer this service from now on?

At Rover, you can also offer these services as soon as you created your profile.

House sitting is similar to overnight dog boarding but takes place at the owner's home instead of at the sitter’s home. This is ideal for dogs who are more comfortable and relaxed in a familiar environment, plus the dog owner can have extra peace of mind that their home is being looked after, too. There’s no place like home!

During a Drop-in visit, the sitter visits the owner’s home to check on the pet. They can also do other small tasks like feeding the dog or fill up the water bowl.

We love a lot more than just dogs. While dogs are our focus, as a sitter at Rover you can also look after cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, and other animals.
