Brooklyn dog walkers in your neighborhood.
Hi! My name is Kayla! I was inspired by the dogs I grew up with in my family to make it my life’s mission to be of service to all animals and make sure they are treated with upmost respect and love. I’m an experienced dog walker and caretaker. I’m very attentive, patient, and protective of the furry family. I’m from NYC but spent my college years in Ithaca, NY so I love the outdoors. I’m also a brand ambassador for Barkly and certified in First Aid & CPR for dogs and cats. In addition to walking dogs, I also bake healthy treats for them and take photos of them with my Fujifilm cameras. I would love to meet your pup, show them some love, and go on an adventure together!See Profile
I am a 26 year old pet care enthusiast! I have taken care of animals my entire life, from dogs to cats to hamsters, birds, chickens, and more! Though I have never been a professional dog walker, I have regularly dog sat for professors, family, and friends for the last 6 years. Also a lover of the great outdoors, there's nothing better than enjoying a lovely walk with a pup.See Profile

I had a daschund/lab pup growing up, named Lulu so I'm familiar with the rewards of owning and loving a pet. When I started this profession, however, I never thought it would be so rewarding and enjoyable. Now, I have been dog walking for about a year and I am committed to this occupation because it gives me joy! I will go above and beyond to care for your pet family and help them feel comfortable in your absence. I know it's hard being a pet owner in the big apple; however, we can definitely work together to keep your pet happy. Whatever routine or habits that you may have, I will try my utmost to follow them, as you would. I am also time conscious and very communicative. This is process is...See Profile

No worries re: dog boots—they’re so hard to put on single-handedly! She usually loves the snow so I am glad she got a walk in it. Stay as warm and dry as possible!
Angie is the best! I am dog sitting today and she handled both dogs at the same time great! She always leaves detailed messages and takes great pictures.
Thanks for taking care of our hot little Loafer! She’s getting a haircut tomorrow so should be better able to stand the heat after that.
Thanks Jackson! Love your reports ... and thanks for keeping an eye on Kody's scratching et al ... Have a great weekend! Resa
Thank you so much! I left earlier than my partner and didn’t realize he didn’t leave the food out. So sorry. Glad you found. <3
Thanks Angie! Sounds like Melo got a lot of exercise today...and the photo you posted of him is hysterical!
He was aware of the concerns that I had and he spent a little extra time for his needs and he was friendly.
Maria is so so sweet. She has loved miles from the beginning and always taken such good care of him.
Kristine is great. Responsible and reliable, plus Spoon looks like she had a great time. Thank you!
So glad it wasn’t raining for the walk! Poor girl has been very depressed about the weather.
Sorry it took so long for this one. App was slow. Thanks for the walk, hope you stayed dry.
Thanks for the heads-up on the coughing! She gets those coughing fits once every so often.
Thank you so much for your close attention Sean! We, and Luna, appreciate it so much!
Thank you for all your communication and patience yesterday. I was super grateful.
Thanks for refilling the water on this hot day! Enjoy the holiday and stay cool!

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.

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.
