Hi! My name is Heather and I am a 27 year old woman that has been working as a Professional Pet Care Provider for 5 years now. I grew up on a farm in Powhatan, Va with all kinds of animals but most importantly I grew up with 7 dogs (big & small). I love all dogs & cats and am very confident around them. I treat all animals as if they are my own and I will go out of my way to make sure you and your pets feel safe and happy in my care :) I’m trustworthy and can accommodate whatever your needs are for your dog’s walk ! I am very reliable and I have a very flexible schedule. This is not only a job to me as it is something that I love and am very passionate about! I hope to meet you and your pets...See Profile

Hi there! I'm a student at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and majoring in Wildlife Conservation. I've always had a passion for the welfare of all animals, and I want to ensure that your family member gets the best care possible. Some previous experience of mine is that I've had 5 dogs of my own throughout my life, and have volunteered at adoption events for both cats and dogs.Let's get to know each other, and I promise I don't bite!If you are satisfied and happy with my care, feel free to let others know and to use my code: walk0385mic (gets you $50 in credit for walks!)See Profile

Thanks for all your work with the dogs. Barkly let us know you would not be able to walk them anymore. Maria and I are sorry to see you go. Good luck with everything. Happy holidays!
Great! Terrific communication before the walk to coordinate so we could meet, since it was my first time using Barkly and also since Atticus is a new dog. Thanks so much.
Seriously! You get then best pictures of him. His relief summary wasn’t included in the notes - anyway you can let me know if he peed and pooped? Thanks!
Harper did great today. She was faced with a lot of challenges and she rose and met all of them. I really appreciate her diligence and thoughtfulness.
Matt does such a terrific job with Pete! Even our neighbor who is home during the day has remarked how well Matt handles our dog. We are so grateful!!
In the future I’d appreciate if Pete could be walked during the requested time, so his afternoon wait isn’t so long. Thx!
Thank you for calling about their food intake. They are finicky creatures :) hopefully they'll eat more dry food today!
Btw, sometimes Barkley lets me add tips, sometimes I don’t have that option, I cannot access that option today. Sorry!
Thank you, Felicia!! They are super friendly :) glad you were able to find everything ok. Have a great weekend!
Thank you so much! Glad Ollie had someone to play with besides Bruce and that Bruce got lots of love.
Feel the Bern! Thanks so much for taking care of our kitties. Hope we can hire you in the future!
Thanks for the note and for contacting me with this issue. I'm sorry my dog was a jerk to you.
Thx!! We’re trying to teach him not to chase squirrels while on leash but it’s tough.
Thanks so much! I think Pete has mellowed a bit since he hasn't been in crate.
Thanks so much for adjusting your schedule to take out this cranky little man!
Mistake! It was a 5 Star walk! Please correct that. I was trying to add a tip
Alex is great! Super communitive and clearly is a dog lover herself!
GEORGE AND I LOVE THE WALKERS ! HE IS ALWAYS SMILING WHEN I GET HOME!
I don't know how she does it, but she takes great photos of the dogs.
Thx! Btw, Pete has been going #2 in the back yard more often lately.

How can I book a walk in Washington DC?
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 Washington DC?
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!
