As a former walker and customer of Barkly, I can say I was extremely pleased with my experiences on both sides of the spectrum and cannot recommend them enough.As a walker, I felt the staff at Barkly was very attentive and supportive to any questions and concerns I had. They regularly provided us ad...

Barkly services are one of the most remarkable easy going, dog walking experiences to have for your pet! It was simple to set up on the app. It felt safe with the walker giving their photo ID to concierge (especially with me being able to share a name and photo of the walker beforehand with concierg...

I have nothing but good things to say about Barkly Pets! The first thing I noticed when applying as a walker was that the customer service was phenomenal.

Great company to work for. I've been a walker for about 6 months. The app is extremely easy to navigate and use. The whole process of meet-and-greets and walks is very clear to both walkers and owners. Whenever I've had any question, support has been easy to reach and quick with an answer. Overall, ...

Here’s what I can tell you about Barkly Pets, with experience as both a former walker and a former employee who worked closely with the founders and staff: their mission statement, “People’s pets should be cared for by someone who loves them as much as they do” is taken to heart. Every perso...

Definitely the best company of its kind I've ever had the pleasure of working for....

What better way is there to earn money in doing something that you love? While I don't own any dogs, I love meeting dogs and seizing the opportunities to dog sit/dog walk them! As a Barkly dog walker for almost a year, Barkly provides outstanding services for both their clients and dog walkers. The...
Anabel D.
Barkly is a great company to work for! I am a dog walker for the company and I can say that before we are officially out on the field working, we are properly and thoroughly trained. What I like most about Barkly is that dog owners have the option to have a meet-and-greet with dog walkers. I think i...
Adrienne R.
Wouldn't trust my dogs with anyone else! Barkly is the best dog walking service out there. The app is easy to use--it's consistently a seamless process. I know my dogs will always be in good hands, and I look forward to getting my post walk reports each and every time. I have 2 very different dogs--...

I'm both a Barkly customer and walker. They're wonderful, reliable, and truly care about providing your pet with the best possible care....
Amber T.
I've been using Barkly for 6 months, since my puppy was 8 weeks old and even when he couldn't really go for long walks outside. The walkers are super reliable, accommodating and take the best care of our little guy. We always get a full report & photo after each walk and the walkers are great at co...
Aly H.
I don't review things very often but I have been using Barkly pets for awhile now and I must say I love them! They have never missed a walk and are always willing to go above and beyond for you and your pet. Highly recommend!...
Laura H.
We've been using Barkly for two weeks now (in Philadelphia), and it has been awesome. The walkers are great, the reports are amazing, and our dog is getting a great experience. Love so far!...
Susan K.
Great experience! I hurt my leg and couldn't walk my dog for several days. Walkers were responsive, sweet with my boxer, understanding of her leash reactiveness and took her on great walks. She was always happy and tired when she returned! Being able to see the map of their walk was a huge plus. ...
Matthew R.
Great Service. Always helpful and Never a problem....
Hillela S.
We started using Barkly when we adopted our then shy dachshund, and have loved our experience. I appreciated that our first walker was fantastic and continued to pick up our walk requests, so that our dog had consistency. When she wasn't available, we had two other great walkers who checked in to ma...

I started using Barkly about 2 months ago, and I could not be happier. I love the ease of scheduling and paying, and the customer service is fabulous. Everyday I get a route map, picture of Snickers and a summary of the walk - which I love! My dog walker, Gail is very conscientious - and I trust h...
Elizabeth H.
I have a very needy, very big great dane. We recently moved to DC and it was a tough transition. The Barkly team was everything for my dog! They helped me find the perfect walker, they listened to my concerns, they were SUPER quick and responsive. I ended up with an amazing walker who is flexible, h...
Sarah E.
I absolutely love Barkly. It's more convenient that other dog walking services thanks to its app; the walkers seem to genuinely care about dogs; and the prices are competitive. I used it in DC and am sad to have moved to a city that's still waiting on its Barkly presence. Fingers crossed that I can ...
Stephanie K.
I have been a walker for Barkly for a few months now and can attest to the fact that it is an awesome company! They treat their walkers so well- we not only want to do our best for our customers, but we have a community that fosters accountability as well! It is evident how much the owners are inves...

I have been a Barkly costumer for over a year now and am thankful to have found a trustworthy company that my dog and I both love. It is comforting to know every weekday a friendly face will stop by my place and walk my dog. The on-demand walk feature allows me not to feel incredibly guilty about wo...
Gigi S.
Not only does Barkly treat the dogs they walk (full pun intended) as if they were their own, but their management and company ideals make it a great environment for us walkers as well! The best things by far about Barkly are the on-demand nature of the app, the fact that they only walk one dog at a...
Hillary R.
I'm a new dog owner and I'm so grateful to have found Barkly to help me take care of my little guy. The app is so intuitive and my on-demand walk requests always get picked up almost immediately. I love the post walk report email that shows me my walker's route and includes a picture of my pup. The ...

Barkly is the perfect service for young professionals who work long hours, and who also need to squeeze in morning or evening workouts without having to feel guilty about leaving pets at home! Esp with the size of NYC apartments, it's a great amenity to let your dog get some exercise in during the d...
Andrew B.
Barkly is a lifesaver! Being on the go like most of us it's truly incredible to know Barkly is there to help take care of the little dude when things come up. The on-demand service is convenient and the walkers are amazing, professional and trustworthy....

Angela D.
I came across this site by pure accident looking for someone to walk my little man on very short notice. What a life savior. Used it twice in one day out of necessity & was extremely pleased. From the phone call I received to help me get started to the 2 walkers everything was perfect. I'm sure Coop...
Ryan F.
I've been a loyal Barkly customer for almost a year now. Anytime my fiancee and I head out of town, one of Barkly's extremely friendly "walkers" comes over, feeds our cat, and plays with her. It's given us a lot of peace of mind knowing that we can leave for the weekend and that our cat is in good h...

Absolutely the best dog walking service in DC! They are so great with my pup, very attentive and always give me a great update after each walk. The app is super user friendly and the Barkly team is extremely responsive and helpful....
Alyssa W.
I am a biased reviewer as I have been working with Barkly for quite some time now, but I am also a user of the service and I couldn't be happier. I don't have a dog but I have an elderly cat who needs a lot of attention and special care. Barkly's walkers have taken care of my cat while I was out of ...
Arik M.
I love everything about Barkly. My dog means the world to me, so only the best will suffice. The app is great and the walkers are knowledgeable and caring. My dog, Kingsi, comes to work with me, but Barkly provides a great, flexible service for him to get some exercise while I stay productive....
Tina B.
I love this service!!!! The walkers are amazing. I get thoughtful notes after with what happened and how my dogs are doing. I love the automated post walk email and how easy it is to use the app. Great value and superior customer experience!!...

Dineda N.
I can't say enough about this service. The dog walkers are super friendly, courteous, accommodating and everything in between. I especially love the note taking, and walk route maps. I am very happy with this service and definitely will recommend it to my neighbors. And most importantly, Rex lo...
Sean D.
I used Barkly for the first time today and was very impressed. It was easy to use and they did a fantastic job. I'm not one to trust others easily with my most prized possession- my dog! This App is fantastic and gives me piece of mind to know in a pinch I have quality care for my pup, literally av...
Sam C.
Just used Barkly to walk my dogs and loved it. After the walk, the walker, Nico, sent me an update with the route map and a picture of my dogs. Will definitely keep using Barkly!...
Juan G.
Yay! I can attend happy hours after work again, without worrying about the pup being stuck at home without a walk. Margaritas, anyone?...
