Hi, my name is Andrea and I love to be around Dogs. I have two of my own, a boxer named Bruno and a Pit mix named Brylee. I've worked in an environment with different typed of breeds and I love them all. I'm an active person and always up for a walk or run at the park or around the neighborhood. I would love to play and help walk your fur baby at any time needed.See Profile
I am a dog mom of two amazing boys. Benny is my 12yr old French Bulldog and Diesel is my 6yr old Frenchton. They make me laugh everyday and just enjoy beefing around them. I have been walking dogs full time for the past 3yrs and it isn’t a job to me. I absolutely love being around dogs and helping out pet owners whatever dog service they should need. I will treat your dog like they were my own. I live in the 2nd ward, but for sure work outside my area as well.See Profile
In addition to walking/hiking with your dog, I also play fetch and foraging games. There are so many enrichment activities I can do with your dog as well so not only will they get their physical needs met but also their mental and socio-emotional needs. I have my own dog and love him very much so I will be sure to treat yours like my own. I usually walk/hike in Hermann Park. However, I am open to suggestions if your pup prefers walking/hiking somewhere else. Naturally small dogs need less exercise but that doesn't mean lower intensity. For bigger dogs such as Golden Retrievers and Labradors, I usually take them on 2+ hours hike/walk since they require more exercise.I am learning...See Profile
I have been a dog sibling or parent for over 30 years. I have no breed bias. I enjoy the company of most any dog and like walking or running with them. I do know some might have physical limitations from their breed, weight, health, and age.Visits to dog park are on a case by case basis.Walks are stated rates, will be timed and distances will be according to the dog’s ability and pace. Your dog(s) will be given time to sniff, BM, mark, and just enjoy their outing.Runs are additional cost based on requested run. Runs will based on distance and not time but will be also be to your dog(s) ability. We will start with a 10 minute walk to warm up and so they can relieve themselves.Minimu...See Profile

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