I can’t think of a more fun way to make money!


I have done more than 30 walks as a dog walker for Rover.

I love the job: I can’t think of a more enjoyable way to make money!

However, not everything is perfect with the Rover app. I think that Rover takes at least 15% of their revenues. There is also a lot of competition on the platform, and it is sometimes hard to get customers.
