dog walker, make money from home, rover sitter, work from home

Go walk the dog…..

Dogs.…we are a animal loving family…we have 3 cats and 1 dog, and my daughter is currently devising a plan to add a snake to our repertoire ….(not going to happen…..sorry sweetheart, and no offence to those who like reptiles…they just aren’t my cup of tea.)

2 Years ago, we were looking for a fun way to make some extra money…4 kids can be pricey….I had been a part of a direct sales company that had recently closed it’s doors.  I wanted to add money to our family budget without leaving the home.



After a few weeks of searching, I came upon an amazing opportunity…  rover.com.  If you love dogs and cats, and don’t mind living among them, then this service might be for you!  In December of 2015, we signed up to watch dogs in our home while people traveled for work or play.  Originally we thought that we might watch dogs a few days out of the month, but we have actually been booked for 18 months straight!  We have regulars and we have one time visits.  I do have to say that our own dog is very laid back and great with other visitors, so, my piece of advice is to make sure your dog is a willing participant in the venture.  If you are interested in checking it out, here is a great link.

  1. Oh wow!
    I would love to do this, but the home we are renting has a no pet policy ’cause they just added hardwood floors… Big Sigh.
    We lost our beloved dog last year and I can see that it would be super fun to host other people’s puppies:).
