You set your own rate. However..... the BIG caveat is that rover takes 20% and then you can’t forget that you have to pay income tax on this money too. So a ‘competitive’ rate means you could end up barely making minimum wage in some states! This is especially the case for overnight stays where it’s a flat rate covers all of the walks, playtime, and attention the pet needs.
You might get paid substantially if Rover didn't take such a big cut. Out of what it looks like you will get paid, Rocer takes 10% from you and 10% from the dog owner. I get the insurance and their "service" with this algorithm that assists you as a contractor but note, it appears to be built to simply make THEM money in the grand scheme. What you end up doing is worth way more than what you get paid for. Hopefully your bookers tip you well and are knowledgeable of these details. Good luck!
Yes. Everytime I sit a dog, so once a week I guess.

Yes but specific amounts depend on how high you set your prices to watch or walk a dog.

I usually am sitting or walking one to two dogs per week. This would mean I would get a payment every week. This would depend on the sitter of course.

It depends. I charge $28/night and $14/drop-in visit. This keeps me competitive and depending on the individual gig, is just not enough sometimes.
