As college students we do a lot in one week. Personally, I go to school in the mornings, tutor in the afternoons and take care of dogs with Rover on the weekends (occasionally on Thursdays as well). I just started working with Rover and it has been amazing so far. I am very much a dog person and had several dogs before moving to San Francisco. Now, I have a few dogs stay over on the weekends after a long week and getting to pet, play, and take care of them is a huge blessing.
Whether it is dog walking, dog sitting, or dog boarding apps both Wag! and Rover have these dog related services. Both are like babysitting apps but for dogs or puppies. Wag! focuses more on dog walking and Rover focuses more on dog sitting and boarding. With Wag! you can suddenly schedule a walk just a few minutes before but with Rover it is a scheduled walk. With Rover though, you can communicate with the dog owner when dog sitting, boarding or walking before, after or during you take care of their dog. Dog sitting is when you take care of the dog for a whole day or even for a few hours. Dog boarding is when the dog stays overnight at the sitter's place. Both are fun, and easy ways to interact with dogs and also a good way to earn money. Bonding with dogs though, you even forget you're being paid for this wonderful service.

Which one is better? Honestly, I haven't worked with Wag! but I have heard good reviews for it. Rover was right for me because I get to take care of dogs in the comfort of my home and walk them throughout the day since I do live near Golden Gate Park. I strongly recommend for people who love dogs to try one of these two apps. Rover is just what I needed and felt more comfortable in working with. I work at my own home with a dog that I temporarily love and care for.
