How is rover better than Wag? 1/5
By Lawrence Biscontini
Convince me to switch...
Love it. 4/5
Love the app - very helpful. I am a dog walker with Rover, and I noticed I have to close the app completely to go back to the main part of the app after walking dogs. Please fix!
Awesome app and service 5/5
We are so grateful for this service to allow us to find care for our dogs when we travel. Reliable and caring hosts for our pups allow us to relax and enjoy our trips.
Love Rover.com!! 5/5
I’ve used Rover.com many times in many places over the last few years when we travel in our RV. Many National and State Parks do not allow dogs, so Rover.com is really great for these visits. I’ve never had a problem, except once the dogsitter had many foxtails (or was it cheat grass?) growing in her fenced backyard. But we worked out the stay, in that she just walked my dog on leash through her neighborhood an extra few times a day, never allowing him in the backyard.
I love the way you only have to once write out description of your dog, his wants and needs and that lives in the Rover.com site for sitters to read.
I also love that you get text numbers of the sitters immediately upon just an inquiry, not booking, and you can “chat” through text for awhile before booking. And this number is not their personal cell number so no privacy issue for them.
Thank you Rover.com (so much better than wag.com by the way).
Please add your service to Canada. Our 2017 2-month trip there...I had to find doggie daycare/sitters the hard way, just google searches.
Sofia’s Petsitting 5/5
We love how Sofia’s Petsitting in Merced, CA treat our boy. Our worries went away though we miss him, we feel that he’s in good hands. Thanks to Sofia and Paul.
Dog walker Alex 5/5
Alex is awesome
Great service, terrible app 1/5
This company has a great service but they’re app is a hot mess! Dog vacay was a beautiful app and everything was so intuitive and user friendly. The rover app makes every little task impossible. The main thing people want to do on the app is browse and find pet sitters, his should be front and center but it’s not. It’s hidden in your profile and then a little line that says find sitters. Also you should be able to send a quick message or question to any pet sitter your considering but Rover doesn’t allow that. The ONLY way to connect with a prospective pet sitter is to attach your question to a actual reservation for pet boarding or day care with actual dates. Worst of all nothing ever improves, it’s been the same worthless, confusing non functional app for the last year.
Hire someone that understands what people want from this app and fix it!
Trusting app 5/5
By Reina Watt
Rover is a handful service that help me several times when I needed leave my beloved furry son in trusting hands. I highly recommend this application for your pet.
I love this service , it’s truly convenient and easy to find great people to look after my fur baby
Love Rover but a calendar is needed 4/5
We love Rover, but gave it four stars because it would be that much better if there was a calendar for people who use it. We use more than one sitter, and at different times, so I calendar would help us remember correct agreed on days and times.
Rover is great- I have been able to meet my neighbors and expand my community. I don't have a dog of my own and Rover has ket me have some dogs to love on in my life.
Great app and easy to use!
untrue ratings 1/5
rover deletes bad reviews to make their sitters/walkers look better!!! this can be harmful to your pet. they removed a negative review I had written about a sitter that placed my puppy in a dangerous situation because my previous reviews had all been positive.. basically if a sitter doesn’t like a review they’ve gotten, they can have it removed!!
Pretty good but better with some tweaks 4/5
By Color No No
I’m a sitter for Rover and I absolutely love them! I’ve meet many pet owners and have been able to gain repeat bookings. I love their app but I feel like there could be a few tweaks that could be made. It’s been a while since I started so I’ve forgotten if they make you go through a tutorial of the app. There should be a comprehensive tutorial of where to find things. Another suggestion would be to give owners a sample message of what to sent to potential sitters. Many times I’ve had owners ask for me to sit their pet but often are a little out of the way. I feel like there should be a minimum of information you can put to send to a sitter. An example could be: dates needed, potential times for the walking or sitting, a general area the owners are, and when the owners are available for a meet and greet. Overall I’m happy I’ve been able to sit through Rover and I have recommended it to many other people
Only downside is background checks 4/5
I love River and have had great experiences with it. My only concern is I have yet to find anyone who has completed a background check though Rover. With the world we live in, I would feel better about having someone come into my home if I knew they had a background check.
Hard to use 2/5
By Document Geek
I wanted to search for a sitter, but I couldn't find that option. Turns out it's buried under the hamburger icon, in an area that looks like settings or preferences. It should be a main icon choice on the front page of the app! Also, once I found a sitter I liked, I wanted to see how far they were from my house, but I wasn't able to find that option anywhere on the host's page.
Great company but the app can sure use some work.
Also messages don’t show up, so I can’t use the message feature to find the hosts I’ve been communicating with. Horrible app. Now I call to make reservations. It’s easier.
So far good, they helped with my problems
Best dog sitting 5/5
By Colo buddy
It’s so nice to have a app that you have so many choices for dog sitters and walkers. I’ve used the sight a few times and have been very happy with all of the people I’ve used to stay with my wonderful boys. Thank you for such a great app!
Rover vs wags 4/5
I have used both services and prefer rover. I love Rebecca!
I love rover because daisy has one walker. Wags is like uber and sends anyone in the area.
The thing I liked about wags was the walk was live. You could see the gps track the walk as it was happening.
I highly recommend Rebecca!
Great App 5/5
By Ciara Nic
As a dog walker, this app is extremely convenient and easy to use. You get notifications right away and the system never crashes on you or lags.
My favorite 5/5
By 6 stars!!
As a dog sitter, Rover is my favorite platform. However, I do wish they would create an option for owners to tip! Thanks.
Easy to use and no brainer every dog owner should have it!!

yes bomb app
By Snap I
I love Gabrielle And so do our dogs
Rover has far exceeded my expectations! 5/5
The app is great, and the dog walker we found on Rover is amazing as well! We feel very comfortable and connected throughout the process. We know exactly when our walker arrives, where they walked (app shows a tracked map of where they walked, similar to a running app), and wen they left. We also get a “rover card” each day that provides a written summary of the visit and a few pictures of our dog during the visit.
It’s easy to schedule and pay on the app as well.
The only thing I would love to see as an update is a calendar view of my upcoming scheduled appointments. If that view is available, I can’t find it. I am able to see the dates in text format next to my walker in the summary, but I’m very visual as like to see it on a calendar.
Good for sitting, watch out for holiday rates 4/5
By Brant Cox
We have loved Roger so far: we found a sitter that really loves to watch our pet.
But be careful about booking during Rover’s holiday rates...my most recent attempt at booking had all dates at double the rate even though most of the dates were bookend dates to the actual holiday. River won’t do split rates to account for this—it’s either holiday rate or regular.
My dog has a crush on his dog sitter. 5/5
By The Blond Globetrotter
My dog Rico loves his dog sitter Deepti. He is always happy when I come home because I know he was well cared for.
Deepti is responsible, friendly and loves my furry baby.
Rover has been a great service to depend on for my dogs needs.
Almost the perfect pet sitter solution 4/5
I use Rover to find pet sitters for my cat, which the app thankfully supports, but I usually have to dig through lots of dog-centric profiles to find people who seem capable of caring for a cat too. I’m just looking for some features to narrow down my search a bit more. Other than that it’s very convenient to use, I like the scheduling and easy payment features. The “rover cards” are really neat too, love getting detailed repotting on my pet while I’m away. 👌🏼
Rover is monitoring your conversations 1/5
Wow— extremely disappointed to discover that Rover is actually monitoring my conversations with my dog walkers. Seriously??? What sort of big brother dystopian garbage is this? Probably illegal. I briefly discussed a $5 cash payment for an extra walk with a sitter because I couldn’t figure out how to add that fee through the app. I never made that payment, but Rover support emailed me to scold me. Unbelievable.
Mark & Teresa Go Above and Beyond 5/5
We have used Mark and Teresa to take care of our little runts 4 times now.
They are precise and consistent with the care, they play with our pups and fill out all the details about bowel movements and walks. Really couldn’t be better.
We travel semi-often to see our nieces and nephews and while we are helping our siblings get some support with their children, Mark and Teresa are supporting our fur children.
They recently offered a grate extension to give our pups more room to wander. What an extra touch. Thank you guys.
We are customers for life!
The best app if you love your pets 5/5
We have found three of the most amazing people to take care of our two large dogs. We've used the drop in service (daily) AND we've also boarded one of our dogs at someone's house. We had one "bad egg" that has good reviews, great personality, but was completely unreliable. Aside from that incident, I truly feel like we hit the jackpot because we were able to search for people close to home. LOVE Rover.
Not reliable 2/5
Too long in between clients and not enough demand. You also have to wait for people to reach out to you in order to set their animals or walk. Unfortunately, due to this it almost makes this not worth the time put in.
Cats need some love too! 3/5
I overall really like Rover. My biggest issue is that cats are nowhere mentioned, except for in the “additional services” section. I would encourage the developers to add cat information fields along with the God information fields. Cats and cat owners need some love too! 😉
Sitters constantly break plans at last minute 1/5
By pv yo
I worked with two different sitters, both canceled, changed plans, didn’t show up. I suppose they use their dog walking Jobs as backup, but if anything at all comes up, they will mess you over. With the second sitter, I was left waiting in the cold for half an hour, put on hold and hung up on by customer service. There are apparently not enough responsible people for them to run a good service, so they knowingly keep the bad ones. They have an emergency number for the sitter to call if they lose your pet, but I would now fear they would get a call and want to run off without finishing. It’s simple to claim they lost the pet. And Rover would probably still keep them. Horrible company.
It used to be good 1/5
I’ve been using rover since July of last year , and now all of a sudden the app doesn’t send me any notifications at all! I’ve had multiple people try booking me and I haven’t received any of the notifications on the app. Very upset!!
Our dogs love Stephen. We presently have a special needs dog - recovering from an injury. Stephen was very attentive to Porters needs - it was a great comfort to know our dogs were in good hands.
Unable to find a walker - Very disappointed. 1/5
I tried several times to find a dog walker using this app and I either didn’t get a response or was given other excuses. I was trying to schedule several weeks out so it wasn’t like I was trying to schedule something the next day. Will be deleting the app and removing myself from you email list.
Made things so easy! 5/5
By Coop's Dawn
I moved to a smallish town and wasn't sure I'd find a dog walker. I found someone great on Rover and I love that I get notified when she arrives, a map of the route they walked and photos during their walk! It leaves no doubt that the walk was done 😊
Great app for a dog sitter! 5/5
This app works great and I never have any kind of glitches. It’s easy for me to message with clients and book stays. It’s also easy for me to keep up with my calendar through the app.
Great app 5/5
The best thing that happened to me
Wonderful Experience 5/5
I have been a fur kid sitter for 5 years, I was with Dogvacay and they merged with Rover, at first it was a Challenge getting use to the difference. I have been extremely satisfied with the service the support and every single one of my clients. I have not had one issue with (Rover) I encourage everyone that calls me about keeping their fur baby, I feel it’s assuring and safer to book with Rover and I tell friends of friends to please check me out on Rover, they are always happy with the site. I have not had 1 complaint from my clients about the app or Rover. I love keeping fur kids and I want to make the experience for the owner as less Stressful as possible we all feel stressed when we have to leave our little fur babies but if you have a good sitter and (Rover) back up it makes it a lot less stressful for the client. THANK YOU ROVER🐾❤️🐾❤️
Love feeling I can find trustworthy dog Sitter and feel safe leaving my dogs like we get drop in vist and easy pay on line
Rover Rocks My Socks 5/5
I love this app!!!!!
You can literally make money just playing with dogs!!!!!
App of the year!!!
And no I am not an employee of rover.
Works perfectly 5/5
By SU Boeheim
Really well built app for a great service 5/5
Rover is a life saver for dog owners. The sitters that we’ve worked with have all been wonderful and the service has been so seamless.
Love the idea 5/5
We use Rover 1-2 times a month. We love it. However we think the app itself is not easily navigated.
Love the app wish for more features 4/5
Love being able to use rover
I wish there were features that let you filter location, price, reviews etc.
Easy to use, for both consumer and seller 5/5
I love this app and the computer component. Super easy and I love getting the texts with an image on the dogs. Very good stuff!
Outstanding experience 5/5
My 2 little dogs were treated like royalty! This was a far superior experience then boarding at a kennel!
