What is Barkly PetsTM

Barkly Pets began with the idea that pet care should be simple, transparent, and be provided by people who love your pet as much as you do. Combine this idea with today’s technology, recruit a network of truly pet-loving professionals who share this passion, and you have Barkly Pets - the dog walking app.

Barkly Pets is a service for pet owners who want to reliably supervise their pets’ treatment to arrange scheduled or on-demand pet care in a few taps. Customers are matched with local, background-checked, and trained dog walkers available to take out their dog in as little as 60 minutes notice. Barkly Pets delivers premium care through pick-up/drop-off notifications, detailed walk reports including GPS map of route, photos from the visit, ability to provide instant feedback, and encrypted cash-less transactions.

Our Story

As three close friends and neighbors - Chris Gonzalez, Dave Comiskey, and Jim Camut - often found themselves relying on each other to lend a hand in caring for their dogs. Finding affordable, trustworthy, and reliable pet care for them was difficult, especially last minute.

They founded Barkly Pets in January 2015 and began walking dogs in their Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC with word quickly spreading through the dog parks of the city. That was the beginning of what has become the pet care choice for thousands of pet owners along the East Coast. Barkly Pets is available in New York City, Washington DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia.
