Pet sitters and dog walkers, listen up! Seattle-based Rover.com is going national in the coming weeks. Rover.com is a matchmaking website for dog owners, sitters, and walkers that allows owners to browse profiles to find the perfect match for their dog.
It’s free to list your business, and you’re charged only if they get you clients. The site is primarily devoted to pet sitting in its current form, but is already being used by walkers and they’ll be expanding to include more walking features soon. The folks there are eager to partner with sitters and walkers across the country—and APSE graduates will have the added benefit of a certification badge displayed by their names. Rover.com
