Who we are:
Rover.com connects pet parents with the nation’s largest network of pet sitters and dog walkers. On Rover, pet parents can easily discover, book, and manage personalized care for their dogs including pet sitting, dog walking, and doggy day care.

We're also the recipient of World’s Most Dog-Friendly Offices in 2016 by Inc.com.
