Hi, my name is Catherine and I am an actor, avid reader, and dog lover! I grew up with a miniature schnauzer named Mitzi and due to my living situation I'm unable to have a dog of my own, currently. This is why I'd love to spend time with your dog on a walk! I also work as a nanny and dog-sit for friends and family, so I have ample experience in care giving, for humans and furry friends alike. I'm looking forward to getting a workout in with your wonderful dog!See Profile

Philadelphia Dog Walking

The City of Brotherly Love is encompassed in historical value and contemporary significance, a great example of the rich culture that results from the collection of old world and new. A major city with a prominent art scene combined with laid-back neighborhood vibes that make Philly distinctly unique and that’s why our Barkly walkers love it! Ample green spaces were included in the original design of the city, so whether you’re near the Delaware River, or the Wissahickon Valley, there are miles of trails and countless lush parks for Barkly walkers and customers to enjoy.

Daphne is amazing! She was not intimidated in the least by Boricio. I definitely felt a sense of calm and control that I haven't felt with other walkers. I hope Daphne will be walking Boricio more!

  • How can I book a walk in Philadelphia?

    Download our app or create an account from our website. Once logged in, select "Book a Walk."

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 Philadelphia?

    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.
