Dog lover since birth! I grew up with two dogs (a cockapoo and a shih tzu)! I have over 12+ years of experience caring for dogs. My clients would describe me as friendly, responsible, and patient. My friends would describe me as the one who is playing with/petting the dog at parties. I promise to give your dog the best walk!See Profile
Hi! My name is Kayla! I owned a cocker spaniel for many years and we enjoyed the time we had together. Romeo inspired me to make it my mission to be of service to all animals as much as I can. I’m very attentive, patient, and protective of the furry family. I’m from NYC but spent my college years in Ithaca, NY. I’m also a brand ambassador for Barkly. And I’m certified in First Aid and CPR for dogs and cats. In addition to loving animals, I love hiking, climbing, rollerblading and photography. I would love to meet your pup, show them some love, and go on an adventure together!See Profile
Hi there! My name is Maddy Smith - I am a NYC-based writer, comedian, and animal lover! I grew up with both cats and dogs in my upstate-NY home, interned on a farm after college, and now currently care for other's pets due to a random schedule and travels (show-business!) that prevent me from providing adequate care for a pup of my own. I live in Astoria, Queens, where I've spent most of my time caring for animals but am available to head to any neighborhood in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. You can expect from me strong communication, reliability, punctuality, and responsibility with your furry ones!See Profile
Dog walking in Manhattan is always exciting with endless sights to see and plenty of smells for pups to sniff out. The island of Manhattan is also a grid, making walks super navigable for walkers. A large majority of Manhattan’s population lives in apartment buildings without access to yards, so there is a huge need for walkers. Barkly Pets makes sure that you have access to the best walkers in the city.

Seeing the boys freak out when you walk in is how a dog walker should be greeted!! They love you Pablo, thank you so much!!
Darcy had fantastic things to say about Chris. He particularly liked the way he bagged his 3 poops. Very good technique.
