Dog Walker in Alexandria, VA

Not only did I grow up in a large family, I grew up on the closest thing to a farm in Suburbia Maryland. My pets included a Golden Retriever (Prince Albert Jr, Aboo for short), two rabbits, a guinea pig, a hamster, two mice, turtles (when they could be found) and several fish. There were clear expectations of shared chores including dog walking and pet care. I am an animal lover in general but have a special place in my heart for dogs. I await the day when I can have my own again! I am reliable, responsible and energetic, and on the days that I am not dog walking, I work as an Executive Assistant for an Internal Medicine practice. Over the past 30 years I have gained much experience walking... See Profile

Customer Reviews

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 ...

Alex G.

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.

Mark N.

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!

Erica J.

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!

Kate K.

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.

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.
