How To Become A Dog Sitter On Rover & Pet Sitting Business Tips

Girl on floor with dog

Dog sitting can be fun and rewarding. You get all the benefits of having a dog (and a little extra money too) without the commitment. I’ve been dog sitting for friends and family since 2008, so when I discovered there was an app that matches dog owners with the perfect dog sitter, I had to try it out!
