Upper West Side dog walkers in your neighborhood.
Hi! My name is Mike, and I’m a lifelong dog owner and lover. I grew up with both small and large breeds, and am comfortable with pets of all sizes. I am a certified vet tech, and also hold a pet first aid and CPR certification. I’m excited to meet you and your pup!See Profile
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
Animal lover having grown up around a plethora of animals (birds, dogs of various breeds, cats, rabbits, etc!) Current undergraduate student in my last semester seeking a job on the side that I will love, thus I’ve become interested in dog walking being that I already do so everyday for my 4 dogs. I understand the care and responsibility needed when caring for a pet, especially when owners are concerned that not everyone will love their animal as they do. I’ve been in that position and am more than capable of providing the service you seek for your pets, who are an extension of one’s own family!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
It should come as no surprise that the Upper West Side is the birthplace of dog walking. The quiet streets, and close proximity to Central Park and Riverside Park, make it among Manhattan’s best neighborhoods to own a dog. You will find Barkly Pets dog walkers on streets like Amsterdam Avenue, and look for us on the weekends playing in the park with other dogs on the Upper West Side
Really great personality and lovely caring person. Tiger doesn’t even come out for most humans but he took to her immediately... never seen that before! Thanks!
Amazing! Want to work with Jessica again! She was very mindful of keeping in touch and communicating with me about how the visit went. Thank you!
Thanks for the great walk! The boys were nice and tired when we got back. Also thanks for being flexible with the time change!
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.
Clara was an amazing walker who always kept us up to speed on what was going on. Banksy will definitely miss her!
Absolutely delighted by our first Barkly walk! Jessica was great, and we can’t wait to work with her again!!
Thanks Michelle. She wasn’t feeling well when I got home but o think she’s starting to feel better
Terrific guy who seems really attuned to a dog's disposition. Will be happy to use him again.
You are the best!!! Seriously!! Thank you for spending some extra time with the boys!!
Thanks for taking care of the boys, drying them off, and overall being terrific!!

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.

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!
