Rover

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Rover is transforming the fragmented mom-and-pop dog-sitting and dog-walking industry into both the Airbnb and Uber for dogs. The platform uses data science to pair a pet with the most suitable caregiver and provides owners with something new: transparency. Clients receive updates, pics, and even GPS maps of walks. “We let you know the quality of care being delivered,” says Rover CEO Aaron Easterly. After successfully acquiring and integrating its rival DogVacay last March, the company’s network now includes more than 200,000 sitters (93% more than 2016) and 139,000 dog walkers who book services every four seconds. The total value of Rover’s services last year was nearly $225 million.
