“We’re excited to expand our relationship with Rover and make their leading boarding, sitting, walking and day care services more accessible to pet owners through Petco’s integrated multichannel ecosystem of solutions,” said Jenny Wolski, Petco SVP of Omnichannel Experience. into a company release.

People who book these services for the first time will receive a one-time discount of $10. Members of Petcos Vital Care Offer — a paid annual program that offers pet owners a comprehensive wellness plan for a simpler, more affordable way to care for their pet’s overall health — will receive a one-time $20 discount on their booking beginning in Spring 2022.
