Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Dog Walker in

Fun and manageable!

I love working for Rover because I set my own prices and make my own schedule. It is a great source of income as a primary job and can be a great secondary job for extra income. The biggest improvement I can suggest is taxes. You have to save your own money to pay taxes at the end of the year because they send you a 1099 form at the end of a year. I would prefer them just take taxes out at the time I get paid rather than having to worry about it at the end of the year. Other than that, Rover is great!


Flexible scheduling, you set your own price to make as much as you want.


No taxes taken out so you have to pay at the end of the year.

It's a side job..

Don't quit anything to work here full time. People pick and choose you from a website. It is just a side job for extra money and that is all this is. You can not make living wages working here


Meeting cats/dogs, extra money


Don't get a lot of jobs, contract job
