The Rover app is very frustrating. - It continuously sends notifications (to both the walker AND the client!) that a "visit is in progress" both before and after any event. - It doesn't stop the clock after a walk until your pictures have uploaded (using up your data!) - It doesn't allow you to differentiate the distance you're willing to travel or the size of dog you're willing to work with, based on the service provided. - And taking 20% of our salary is way too much!!

Rover delivered brilliantly the first time. However what I have come to realize is that the app doesn't have the greatest interface. The availability doesn't reflect reality. The contact information isn't always clearly visible. And there is a base standard for sitters. Each one runs it rather differently.

GPS function is still very sketchy and maps are completely inaccurate. They don't show the correct location where I've walked which gives the owner false impression and makes me look bad. Walkers need to be allowed more editing capabilities for their own bookings. Every day should be able to edit individually. I shouldn't have to contact Rover every time I need to tweak some minor detail. When I'm forced to pay such a high fee to use a simple service I expect that it should function at 100%.

Hi, Thanks so much for your feedback. I'm sorry for your experience. Specifically, with trail systems, it does get tricky as the maps follow "known roads" versus trails. For all other concerns, if you're willing to call our Customer Support number, we'd be happy to troubleshoot with you! We can be reached at 888-453-7889.
