How do I edit service dates for dog boarding or house sitting?

We get it—sometimes plans change. If you need to edit the dates for dog boarding or house sitting services, here’s how to make changes both before and after the stay is booked.

Before booking

After booking

Before booking

From iPhone:

  1. Tap Inbox at the bottom of your screen.
  2. Under Pending, tap the request you want to edit.
  3. Tap Modify. Here you can edit the dates and pets you’d like to book.
  4. Save your changes when you're done. 

From computer:

1. Navigate to your Inbox by selecting the conversation icon in the upper right corner of your screen.

2. Under the Pending Requests tab, select the correct conversation.


3. Locate the gray request details box on the left side of the page and update your booking as needed. The price will automatically adjust to reflect any changes.


Note: If your sitter has already accepted the booking request, the gray box will instead prompt you to either Accept Request or Decline Request. To edit the service before booking, select Decline Request first.

4. Select Book It Now. You're all set!


After booking

If you need to change the dates after already confirming the booking, contact your sitter via Rover Messages. If they agree to the date change, they can modify the booking from their account. 

Once your sitter makes the change, you'll need to confirm the modification from your account. For information on how to accept changes to a booking, check out this article.
