Hi, my name is Maggie and I am excited to be a Barkly Pets walker! I have experience walking all sorts of dogs from the extremely energetic to the very mellow and the super skittish. Growing up my favorite siblings were my family's golden retriever and a black lab. I am a Social Work graduate student at University of Maryland and dog walking is the best study break I could imagine! I can't wait to meet all my new doggie friends.See Profile
Hello! My name is Kelly, and I am passionate about animals. I had a large 90+ pound Labrador growing up whom I leash-trained and taught many tricks to. Through our Lab I have had lots of experience with harnesses, and walking a strong dog. In college I volunteered regularly at the local animal shelter which typically boarded Pitbull and "bully" mixes. They are one of my favorite breeds! I love working with dogs that need some extra care like rescues. I rescued my own dog about three years ago, and she had a few problems like stranger and separation anxiety. For me, the challenges are absolutely worth the reward. I also have experience housesitting multiple animals at a time. Currently I'm go...See Profile
I’m a stay at home mother with over 15 years of experience working and caring for animals. I have been a dog walker and pet sitter on and off for many years and I also volunteer with BARCS and MDSPCA when I have free time. I have also worked part time at Petsmart for over a year, so I have experience with many animals, including many dog breeds. I’m comfortable with dogs of all sizes and I pride myself in being able to identify when the most obscure dog breed. I look forward to walking with your buddy soon!See Profile
Hi, I'm Sarah. I've been waking with Barkly since January 2015 and I adopted my own 4-legged friend that July. I have experience with all kinds of dogs with different temperaments including some very timid and/or reactive. I always you positive reinforcement and force-free training with my own dog, as well as any that I work with. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your pup!See Profile
A historical seaport city with more properties listed as historic buildings than any other city in the country. Barkly walkers love strolling through the leafy neighborhoods and residential streets. The area boasts elegant architecture and a small town atmosphere with friendly residents that have given it the nickname “Charm City”. Dog owners can enjoy the Baltimore Inner Harbor where there are plenty of pet-friendly restaurant patios to eat and relax while enjoying the view with a cold brew.
I agree about the harness! Certainly have more control with the old harness. I really didn't like the way it fit her though, but maybe I'm just nuts! Will have to mess with it more or perhaps buy a new one. We shall see.
Lmao she slows WAAAY down at the end of walks for me too. Sometimes I think it's because she doesn't want the walk to end. 😝 Love that silly girl. Thanks Molly!!!
We are so grateful for Barkly. We especially appreciate Thomas. He is always punctual and provides awesome feedback. His care for Seamus is truly top notch!
Wow thank you for painting such a great picture of your adventure with Honey! That big smile on my face tells me she's found a new best friend in you. xxx
Cutie pie definitely prefers the A/C! You'd think she'd want water on walks, but she is disinterested by it when I offer it too. Lil weirdo.
Thanks so much for taking great care of Riley and for cleaning up the plant she got into!! Riley was exhausted when I got home!
So glad this walk was better than the AM walk! And I'm in love with that photo, will you send it to me if you still have it? 😊
Thank you so much for the last minute walk! I'm sure Honey was super thrilled to meet you and hang out with a new friend. ❤️😊
It is surprising sometimes how few dogs we run into. But some days are the total opposite! Thanks for feeding Ms. piggy ❤️
Ugh sorry the app deleted your note!!! I'm sure it was lovely and I appreciate the thought. 😊 Glad the walk went well!!
Honey does better and better with those barkers behind fences. I'm proud of her! So glad you two had a lovely walk! ❤️
What a sweetie. Thanks Molly. She is such a piggie and burps so much after she eats. Thought the bowl would help 😝❤️
Honeybun LOVES the mailman! It's adorable. Thank you for taking great care of her in this scorching hot weather.
Ah yes, her piggie noises when she's munchin on her food are hysterical. She's too cute. Thank you so much!!!

Love this!! So happy I did an hour walk in this GORGEOUS WINTER DAY! Thank you Haley, you're amazing :-)
