Animal lover that will leave your mind at peace!

Hello there, I am Bella! I am a Philly native and an animal lover! Growing up, my family had all types of animals including dogs and cats. As a child, I had a Chihuahua and lots of my family members have pit bulls (we are pit lovers!). I don't currently have the time to dedicate to a pet, so this is a way to stay connected to animals until I am able to have one of my own.During my college years, I was an avid dog walker and sitter, and also checked in and cared for cats.

Old City Dog Walking

Not only is this one of the most historical districts in the country, but it is also a very walkable, and pedestrian friendly area for dog walkers. Our Barkly walkers love the rich cultural value of the neighborhood where they can walk on cobblestone streets past Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin’s home, or even Elfreth's Alley which is the oldest continuously inhabited street in America. There is an abundance of blocks in the neighborhood entirely devoted to green space with tall, old oak trees and walking paths perfect for peaceful strolls with your dog.

Common Questions

  • 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." 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 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. 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!
