Dog Walker in Alexandria, VA

My friends call me LB! I grew up in West Virginia with a few mix breed dogs throughout my childhood. My dogs were, without a doubt, my first best friend. Not only were they my best friends but they motivated me to have my 2nd job which was walking dogs (delivering newspapers was my first!). I’ve been walking with Barkley here and there for a couple of years. As a result of covid-19 I have a lot more time on my hands and I’m looking to meet YOUR furry friend and take them for a walk.See Profile

Alexandria Dog Walking

Dogs have been apart of Alexandria since George Washington’s dogs roamed the grounds of Mount Vernon. Alexandria boasts many dog-friendly amenities like the Mount Vernon Trail and the massive Duke Street Dog Park. The area has a range of different types of neighborhoods. Our NoVa dog walkers particularly love the new developments and parks in Huntington, as well as the quiet neighborhoods of Del Ray and Old Town.

Customer Reviews

We left the wrong keys for Katherine and she couldn't get into the apartment. Even with that, Katherine was professional and kind and willing to stay around and still walk and love our puppy. If I could speak to a Barkly manager, I would say nothing ...

Alex G.

Thanks! That's a good walk for her... it's pretty much the standard one I do for her too, over to Starbucks and then around the Lost Dog Cafe. Another good one is on the walking paths behind Braddock Road Metro. Thanks a lot.

Mark N.

Thank you so much! This was our first experience with a dog walker and you made it WONDERFUL! I will definitely be using you again in the near future! Thank you so much for your feedback and care!

Kristin was awesome as usual! Gave such a great, detailed recap of her time with Rocky and is really helping me with the leash training he's going through. Thank you, Kristin!

Thanks so much for such great feedback about Sookie! She is definitely timid so I'm trying to get a more consistent walker. And I'm glad you liked my place :)

  • 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.
