Buddy loves Ingrid❤️🐾 5/5
By Buddy Doodle
Ingrid came to meet Buddy and asked all the questions that would enable her to quickly become familiar with his home, schedule and needs when she came to walk him. He immediately bonded with her. We had an excellent experience with Ingrid and definitely will call on her next time. My first time experience with Rover and Ingrid was very positive. Ingrid was on time for the meet and greet and visits during the day. She took excellent care of my fur baby which is no easy task because he has lots of energy and plays all of the time. H was calm and happy when I returned. I will book with her again.
Pay for your own background check 2/5
I went through The Who process of signing up and after 30 minuets I get to the end to be told I have to pay $25 minimum to pay for a background check to walk someone’s dog. That should have been clearly stated and at the beginning of the process so people are aware before wasting their time.
Loving this app 5/5
By Coach GU12 France
So excited someone recommended Rover to us. As a military family whose moved 14 times, finding a great place to board our fur kid is hard! I loved being able to read about the people and read reviews. Meeting the person that was going to watch Remy was great too and we felt great about our decision. Remy had a great time and we look forward to using it again.
Inbox empty 2/5
I usually don’t have a problem with this app but lately I’ve been receiving requests for dog walks and I’ll get the text but when I open the app nothing is there so I can’t accept or reject anything. It’s so frustrating, I’ve updated the app and I’ve reinstalled it but nothing has changed
Lynn’s has been a life saver when it comes to watching my dog Louie. She is the best and Louie loves her too.
Pricing is so random 2/5
If holiday is included in booked period, whole period will be charged with holiday rate. If i do it separately, holiday rate day is charged with normal rate? Is this controlled by client side or backend side? I think it is huge negative for user experience.
Rover fees 2/5
Rover takes 20% of everything which is outrageous for an app that isn’t well optimized or organized. They do nothing and expect a huge chunk of your money
Owner of a Chocolate Lab 5/5
By Cedarburg 4
We are planning on using Rover again with the same sitter. She was wonderful and gave our dog a lot of love and care. I would highly recommend them. Thanks for your great service, Rover.
Useless app, Don’t waste your time 1/5
When Signing up for this app it takes like 40 min and they ask for social security. After setting up you have to wait for someone to message you. I heard that this app lets people show up higher on the search list, That might be true. I’ve only had one person message me n than they canceled after a few days. I’ve had this app for weeks and no one else is messaging. I look at the search bar on other peoples phone and I hardly pop up. I’ve lowered my prices very low and still no ones messaging. This apps been a complete waste of time for me. If you are going to download it now, DONT!!! You won’t find anyone.
First Rover Client Today! 5/5
Today I had my first doggy day care visit and it was so much fun! I can't wait to have another. This is a great experience!
REAL REVIEW 1/5
By HELLBOY R.I.P
Do not download this app if you don’t have $25 it’s a great concept but the fact that it takes a hour to complete the questions and sign up to then be met by a background check that you have to pay for is a absolute joke the company usually pays for the background check I’m 19 and in college you expect people to have 25$ sitting around this is a joke DO NOT DOWNLOAD IF YOU DONT HAVE 25$ READY
Thank you for reading
Eric is a wonderful caregiver of animals
Never look further if you wish to find the best in this world
Unexpected Adventures 5/5
I’ve been working for Rover for almost 6 months now and I couldn’t be happier with the unexpected adventures I’ve had within my community. I’m impressed with how much I’ve benefited from walking a strangers dog while they're away or just has a busy schedule. I’m glad that there’s a easy to use platform like Rover. I would recommend this side hustle to any reliable person that loves animals....especially dogs. Thanks Rover!
No accountability for owners 1/5
By r. hanson
I have enjoyed watching dogs via Rover, however, the lack of owner accountability is very upsetting from a business standpoint. A dog owner can book a stay with you weeks in advance, then cancel on the day of the stay without so much as a percentage fee for cancelling. This happens far too often, and has made us consider other options in the petsitting community. If Rover had settings (like Airbnb) to protect the petsitter in these situations, the cancellation rate would drop drastically and more owners would commit to using this service.
I simply can’t pay. 1/5
By Can't find a right nickname
I can do everything up until I am supposed to pay and it won’t let me click pay. Awesome app and website
Awesome just a couple things 5/5
Love seeing reports on our dogs. Wish we could like it and leave comments on the card for the people watching our dogs to see and respond to. Otherwise it’s great.
Love Rover 5/5
We Love Rover .All our dogs are wonderful & unique. And thanks to rover not only am I making some money. They bring me Joy & peace of mind. For the time I have them they become apart of my heart. They are my little Stickies💋
Great place to find perfect pet sitters 5/5
So easy to use! You can choose who would be the best for your pets. So many qualified caring people to help you take care of your pets! We have used this App several times and used different sitters. It has been a great experience.
Happy pet sitter 5/5
Been working for Rover for the last 5 months and I absolutely love it. All my clients are so kind and give very detailed instructions on how to care for their pets, which I think is important because it makes my job easier and makes the pet feel comfortable. I’m hoping to make this my full time job, but I would need a lot more clients for that. I’m available for all kinds of service, I just wish it were easier to receive more clients. Other than that, I would recommend this app for sitters or for customers :)
Haven’t Gotten a Single Job 1/5
And have had the app over 2 months. I even go in weekly to make sure my schedule is correct. A waste of time if your looking to make extra money or are an animal lover.
Best way to find a sitter 5/5
By Traveling Dog Mom
We love using Rover to find sitters for our dog. It is easy to book and makes payment simple!
Rip Offs 1/5
Don’t bother working for them if you’re trying to make money. They take most of your cut. Plus they play gestapo constantly spying on your messages to ensure you’re not coming out ahead without them. They want every dime they can get out of you. Horrible business.
Not a good experience with this app thus far.. 1/5
I’ve been on Rover for a few months now and still have not found any dog walking/sitting jobs. I’m very experienced with caring for dogs and have been doing so my entire life. I finally got a message from a person asking me to watch over their dog and after conversating for a couple days via the message portion of the app, the person asked me “who is this?” days later because our conversation had been erased on their end. I hate this app. It has not helped me out whatsoever.
By semi upset customer
Rover is a great site as a college student that wants to earn extra cash on the side. However I wish it let us rate the dogs. Sometimes owners are rude and demand a lot and there is no way for us to warn other walkers. I think it would also be helpful if we could give other dog walkers an idea on how to make the walk better for each dog. Rover support is helpful although sometimes it takes a while to get through to someone. The rover help line isn’t instant. Overall I still use this site and it’s much better than Wag and it’s fun to do in my free time.
A great stay 5/5
By Loki's perosn
Once again Loki stayed with Teresa and her two dogs. Loki has a great time playing. I am worry free when leaving him with Teresa.
Where is the “today” button? 4/5
The app is really awesome but I’m reading there should be a “today” button to log my activities as a sitter/walker but I don’t see it. Is there a new way to access cards?
Battery Drainer, Otherwise Decent 3/5
The only negative feedback I have as a Sitter is that for Day Care Rover Cards, it REALLY kills the battery. There is no reason why the app has to be continually running while dogs are staying for 8+ hours. I always have to have my charger handy. Instead of a timer to track how long the stay is, there should just be a start button and end button that records the times, and then calculates how long the stay was based on that. And of course it does not offer all of the options that the full site does, but it gets the job done.
I have loved Rover! Animals are my life and love using this easy app! Meeting new friends and animals is the best!
Great app 5/5
The app is easy to use and very useful.
I like how much info I was able to give about my dog and the info I was able to get about potential walkers.
So far so good 5/5
It works well for me as a pet-sitter.
More pay for walkers 3/5
By ninky minjaj
The only reason I’m giving Rover 3/5 is because I wish walkers got a slightly bigger cut of the pay. 12$ for a half hour and 18$ for an hour is not really enough. Also because customers don’t know the percentage that rover walkers actually get they are less likely to tip them.
Awesome way to make extra money but also interact with amazing dogs if you’re a dog lover! 5/5
By Killah katt
Flexible scheduling, easy to use app for booking and for accepting jobs. Awesome gig to have if you love working with dogs and getting to know more of the people in your community!
DO NOT USE - Irreplaceable family heirloom jewelry and other items stolen 1/5
By seriously dont
First time user 5/5
By maxy o
Easy to use and the people are friendly.
Please Improve App Interface... 3/5
Oh Rover...for all the good you do, I’m really disappointed in your company. How can you take a 20% fee from your dog sitters, and not invest any of your earnings into creating a good app interface!? This is the worst app out there, in terms of facility to use. So outdated, and so restricting! Also, your new “rover card” feature completely logged the gps of a 3 mile run I did incorrectly...displaying it as only .3 miles! What the heck! I’m encouraging all of my clients to rebook with me directly, and not to use the Rover app. It’s WRONG to take 20% of employees earnings when it’s clearly not being used for anything other than developers’ profit....tsk tsk, Rover.
Bad customer service if your pet dies 1/5
My dog died under the care of a sitter. The sitter was a true animal lover and offered compensation. Rover told the sitter to cuts tries with us and that she owed us nothing! I just want you to know what kind of company this is. They don’t care about your pets when things get bad. The only thing they did was planted some trees in honor of my dog. They should have donated that money to animal shelters instead. They don’t care about you or your pets.
Rover Is so awesome 5/5
Rover is so helpful every time a call with a question, And they are so helpful when one of my customers cars with a question. Customer service is awesome, best customer service, friendly people and so helpful
My favorite side job. 🐾 5/5
By Morgan 🌻
To give you a little bit of background, I’m a full time college student with a lot of part time jobs. Rover is fun because I love animals and find them a bit more manageable than working with people. I’ve worked in the service industry for years and definitely prefer animal centered jobs. Rover has an attractive interface for both the sitter and the customer which is important. The process of getting set up for work by them is pretty painless as well.
All about a dog and not cats 1/5
By Groat groat
All about dogs and not cats, needs to be more pet centric.
Great concept 2/5
It will be even greater if they take feedback from here and put into their builds.
I’m new to the app so more later but first thing I noticed is it isn’t super intuitive. Like trying to find where I can see a list of all my requests was difficult.
I’m sure I’ll have more later but I love the idea!
Good way to be a pet sitter or have someone sit for your furry friend 5/5
The Rover app is pretty intuitive and it’s a good way to find a sitter for your furry companion.
Almost perfect 4/5
Love this for my Rover business but there are two things I’ve been hoping they would release some year. 1) A way to change the notification sound. 2) The ability to access my notes about a dog from the app. I have to log on to my computer to see them
Great app for walkers and owners 4/5
By Shelby hacks en burg
The messaging feature is verrrry helpful!
Terrible experience 1/5
By Patrice Gay
Tried 5 different people using the app
2 said yes and backed out
The 3D left my puppy and older dog alone for 6 hours
I had to tell her not to come and get a friend to go to my house
Rover does nothing to ensure they’re committed
Or even good
You have to be 18 to use this,
Before you try to apply READ 1/5
They are gonna ask for background check and charge $25 for it
A bit annoying. 1/5
I don’t like the fact that the sitting and the owner have the same app. I would like a separate app for the sitter/walker to use. I don’t even have a dog to use the app for myself so it makes it more complicated. The app seems old for the technology now a days.
3 flakes in a row 1/5
One sitter was still asleep when I called her 15 minutes into our appointment time. The other one canceled 5 minutes before our appointment time. This last one just canceled hours before our appointment time. I’ve had no success on this app. This is the worst. I’m not sure their screening process, but this is 3/3 horrible experiences for me. I’m done.
I like Rover! There’s been a few glitches during the booking process but other than that it’s great!
