How do I choose the right sitter?

With Rover, it’s easy to find the best care for your best friend. Here’s how to get started:


Find 2-3 sitters or dog walkers who seem like a good fit.
Select the Contact button on each sitter’s profile page to introduce yourself and your pet. Now is a great time to be clear and candid in discussing your pet's personality, preferences, and any special needs. When you’ve discussed expectations and both agreed that it sounds like a good fit, it’s time for a Meet & Greet.


Schedule a Meet & Greet with each sitter you like.
This is your chance to get to know a sitter in person and see how they interact with your pet. You can meet at a neutral location, at your home, or at the sitter’s home. If the sitter has a dog too, consider meeting at a local park so that neither dog will feel territorial.


Book and pay through Rover.
With fast, secure payments and easy owner/sitter messaging, your pet's stay or walk will be confirmed in no time, and you can relax, knowing your pet is in good hands.
