Dogs have been apart of Alexandria since George Washington’s dogs roamed the grounds of Mount Vernon. Alexandria boasts many dog-friendly amenities like the Mount Vernon Trail and the massive Duke Street Dog Park. The area has a range of different types of neighborhoods. Our NoVa dog walkers particularly love the new developments and parks in Huntington, as well as the quiet neighborhoods of Del Ray and Old Town.
We left the wrong keys for Katherine and she couldn't get into the apartment. Even with that, Katherine was professional and kind and willing to stay around and still walk and love our puppy. If I could speak to a Barkly manager, I would say nothing ...
Thanks! That's a good walk for her... it's pretty much the standard one I do for her too, over to Starbucks and then around the Lost Dog Cafe. Another good one is on the walking paths behind Braddock Road Metro. Thanks a lot.
Thank you so much! This was our first experience with a dog walker and you made it WONDERFUL! I will definitely be using you again in the near future! Thank you so much for your feedback and care!
Kristin was awesome as usual! Gave such a great, detailed recap of her time with Rocky and is really helping me with the leash training he's going through. Thank you, Kristin!
Thanks so much for such great feedback about Sookie! She is definitely timid so I'm trying to get a more consistent walker. And I'm glad you liked my place :)
Another great day of pup care by Sara! She is excellent with her communication and Rocky clearly loved her! Very grateful for her care and kindness.
Cheryl was excellent and made us feel very comfortable with our puppy's first walk with a stranger. Hope we could have her walk our pup again
Thanks so much for taking care of my pup! I appreciate the customer service that I experienced today and won't hesitate to use you again!
Morgan was awesome in being proactive by letting me know that she received my updated note regarding Mitsy's injury. Thank you so much!!!
Monica is the best walker I’ve ever had. She deserves a bonus or a raise for her hard work, detailed information, and kind personality.
You are amazing! Thanks so much for the communication! You really enjoy walking pups and do a wonderful job! My fave for sure!!!
Monica is the #1 walker you have. I surely hope you care/pay/reward her for the exceptional work and care she has for my dog.
Amanda was great and made us feel very comfortable by reaching out to us as she walked our puppy. Thank you, Barkly
Fantastic walker and was so great about a last minute schedule change. Really appreciate the flexibility today.
finally a walker that took molly on a 30 min walk unlike previous walker that went to sugar shack and back!!!
Shannon was great! Showed up quickly after a last-minute request and got our stubborn dog to walk in the rain!
Thanks so much Nate! Appreciate these notes on the walk. Will be scheduling more walks in the near future.
Thanks for letting us know! Regarding her stomach, I'll keep an eye on her tonight. Have a nice weekend!
Thank you Amel as always. Such a pleasure to see all the great pictures you take of my little girl.
Kristen is awesome!! She is doing such a wonderful job. Just made her our preferred dog walker.

Can I meet a walker before booking with them?
Yes! All our meet and greets are complementary and free of charge. You can browse through profiles and read our walker bios by tapping on "See Local Caretakers" on the homescreen. When you find a walker who seems like a good match, you will request a Meet and Greet with them to set up a time for a meeting. You can also opt to have us match you with a professional walker. Walkers will start reaching out to you as early as the same day you request the Meet and Greet.

Our dog walkers set their own prices for 30 minute and 60 minute walks. Browse their profiles in the app or on our website to find the walker with the right experience and rates for you and your dog.
Can I have the same walker each time I book?
We believe the best experience for your dog is a consistent walker, and when you book with Barkly, you will book with the same walker. If that walker is unavailable, you’ll have the option to cancel the walk or request that we send a backup walker.
Do I get to see the route my walker takes on the walk?
You will be able to track each walk route in the app so you know precisely where your dog was walked. All visits are also followed up with detailed notes and pictures from the walker, so you know exactly how each visit went. Additionally, we offer 24/7 live customer support, so if you ever need anything, we are always here happy to help!
