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
Hello my name is Luis. I have great experience with all sorts of dogs. I personally care for a Belgian Malinios, energetic dogs are my specialty! I look forward to meeting your furry friend.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
I am in debt to this beautiful planet for its wildlife and plant life. Any way that I can be part of the natural world is good. I have a degree in music and creative writing, poetry. I used to teach first year writing at the community college.See Profile
Thank you so much for cleaning up the mess Saba made before you got here! And for always taking great care of her. (Sorry we ran out of poop bags too, but thank you for improvising)
Helo should have enough water from this morning (bowl is next to kitchen table), but I'll double-check when I get home to make sure he's good. Thank you!
I love that Finley not only gets to enjoy the outdoors, but that you also take a little time to play with her!! She loves that! Thank you!
Thanks for taking care of Cairo and his shenanigans. He looks quite happy in that picture; licking his lips after the tasty avocados.
Rebecca's walk notes warm my heart and help me feel connected to Poppy when I'm on so far away. I'm so grateful.Thanks, Rebecca!
Haha, Saba loves to be chased and “caught” hence the jumping in the couch 😉 Thank you for playing with her so much!
Shamika has walked our puppy quite a bit. They get along great and we always get a nice write-up of what they did.
Thank you for the sweet report and having such great playtime! Yes, Bagel LOVES to give hugs and kisses! :-)
Thanks for always taking such good care of Helo and being flexible with him when he goes a little bonkers!
Love your delightful travelogues, Rebecca! Merry Christmas to our Super Special Favorite❤️~ Maggie & Poppy
We love Amel! She is so wonderful with Fin and always keeps me updated! She is absolutely our favorite!
Thank you for all you do with Saba! We got her to shake twice in a row at home too, she is catching on!
Thanks for meeting our pup today! She is a sweet 9 month old puppy who is excited to explore the world.
Thanks, Rebecca! It’s always a delight to read your Poppy-reports. All the best to you today~Maggie
Thank you for calling and picking up the mess Saba made (sorry!) Appreciate your great care of her!
Rebecca is already a hit with Poppy. She's very kind, professiinal and a delight to have around.
That’s so great you got Saba to “shake” twice! Thanks for always taking great care of her!
Thank you so much for walking Leo this afternoon! I am so glad he was a good boy for you!
Thank you for letting me know about the lock box! And for spending some time with Saba!

How can I book a walk in Arlington?
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 Arlington?
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!
