Hey there!!! I am local to the glenmont /Silver spring and Bethesda-Chevy Chase area but work in dc, so I'm all over town! I've handled dogs and cats big and small, old and young, for both walking and overnight care. absolutely love spending time with our four legged friends (and hope the feeling is mutual!)Most walks I take are between the palisades, Tenleytown, downtown Bethesda, silver spring, and Takoma Park (but anywhere in between is fair game!)Can’t wait to meet your best friend!See Profile
My name is Ebony, I've loved animals all my life and I currently have two fur babies which are a cat named Dakota and a dog whose name is Raine! In my spare time I enjoy working out at the gym and getting fit. Moreover, I enjoy having the opportunity to interact with other families and seeing the love they have for their pets. Please know that I will treat your animals as if they were my own pets!See Profile

Hi! My name is Heather and I am a 27 year old woman that has been working as a Professional Pet Care Provider for 5 years now. I grew up on a farm in Powhatan, Va with all kinds of animals but most importantly I grew up with 7 dogs (big & small). I love all dogs & cats and am very confident around them. I treat all animals as if they are my own and I will go out of my way to make sure you and your pets feel safe and happy in my care :) I’m trustworthy and can accommodate whatever your needs are for your dog’s walk ! I am very reliable and I have a very flexible schedule. This is not only a job to me as it is something that I love and am very passionate about! I hope to meet you and your pets...See Profile

Thanks for stopping her from rolling in the grass especially with it being extra pollen-y today. I'm sure she was none too pleased.... And thank you for filling her water bowl!
Samantha's reports are such a joy to read, it really is like reading a story. Her level of care and customer service is something others should strive to emulate.
An awesome first experience with Barkly Pets. Looking forward to more walks and detailed walks. Love the route analysis with distance, pace & and time.

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!
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.
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.

How can I book a walk in Alexandria?
Download our app or create an account from our website. Once logged in, select "Book a Walk." Add in the dates you need on the next screen and select the duration and time you'd like us to arrive. Select or add the pet's you'd like us to walk on the next screen, and add in any important tasks you'd like for your walker to complete. It's as simple as that!
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.
What are the prices for dog walks in Alexandria?
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!
