Rover connects dog owners with the country’s largest network of five-star pet sitters and dog walkers for services including in-home boarding, pet sitting, dog walking, and day care. It’s a one-stop shop for loving and trustworthy pet care providers.
This company makes sure that not only are the dogs taken care of, but the full-time employees and sitters are, too. Premier Sitter Chelsea Dickson shares, “Being a Rover Premier Sitter has been a really fun and unique experience. I’m a stay-at-home mom, so I’m able to be with my child and do what I love—which is watch pets.” And don’t worry: Even full-time employees in the office get to spend plenty of time with pups and have great work-life (and work-fun) balance, with activities ranging from weekly lunches to quarterly offsites.
The company’s success is due to the positive and open culture management has created. “One of our core values is being really open to feedback and being a reverend with that. So, just as we expect our team to give feedback, we also expect them to take it and not be offended in any way because we are a place of change and a place of wanting to be better. That is manifested in the team on a day-to-day basis,” shares Abigail Umagat, Customer Service Supervisor.
If you want to help people find the perfect person to watch their beloved canine while surrounding yourself with dogs, Rover could be the place for you.
