Safe and trusted app for your pet

Rover gives you the security that when someone comes into your home that there has been a very thorough background check. The app itself tracks the visit of when the sitter arrives & leaves, what your pet was doing during the visit with pictures taken and will track how far you walked a dog. Excellent communication tool ensuring your pet is in good hands.

Great way to make new pup friends

Great app for connecting pet parents with pet caretakers

Rover is a user friendly app which allows the pet walker/caretaker to share pics and routine and route details with pet parents. I’ve found the suggestions and training for new pet caretakers very helpful and appreciate the notifications and emergency support services.
