Dog Walker in Alexandria, VA

Hello , My name is Gregory Roberson, I'm originally from Southern Florida. I'm 27 years old and I have been breeding, walking and caring for many different breeds of dogs mine and others as well since I was 7 years old. I have mostly worked with working breed dogs such as Cane Corso, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentinos, American Pit Bull Terriers, and American Bandogge just to name a few! Currently, I walk dogs in the Southern Maryland and DC area mostly for friends and family and also do basic level training as well.

Dog Walker in Alexandria, VA

Hello! My name is Briana I am a student specializing in a medical STEM hoping to go into the veterinary field. I love dogs of all sizes an all ages! In fact I am a mother of two (Jes a Maltese Terrier who is older and Lexy a Labrador puppy who has just began her wonderful life). I have been dog sitting, walking, and grooming for years (5 approximately) it started out as watching dogs in the proximity of their owners then being paid to walk them, babysit them for weeks, or groom them. I have first aid experience with dogs just Incase your dog might need any assistance and I am prepped to work alongside any accommodations your dog might need such as frequent water breaks or decreased movement...See Profile

Dog Walker in Alexandria, VA

As a member of the United States Air Force I have had interactions with some of the best trained dogs and members. Day and night we are entrusted to work confidently and successfully in order to complete the task at hand. Dogs have been apart of my life growing up and I would be responsible for taking care of them. Through walking I've learned that dogs are apart of their owns and that they rely on a trusting relationship. Given the opportunity to take care of your animal I will do my best to provide a calming, exciting, and trustworthy experience for your pets.See Profile

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.

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!

Kate K.

Hey, thanks Tori. I think she really does like you - at least, as much as she liked anyone who has to wake her up. :) Seriously thanks for walking her regularly, it's great.

Mark N.

Thank you so much Samantha! You always do a great job with Cashmere. And thank you for taking care of the blender for me. Cashmere and I appreciate all that you do! :0)

Iris G.

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 :)

Kathy O.

Thank you for the feedback on Cashmere! I know she is something else. Hopefully, she will come out and play during your next get acquainted visit. :0)

Iris G.

Thank you! I'm glad you got closer to Cashmere this time. Sorry, she hissed at you. But, it's gotten better and a step in the right direction. :0)

Iris G.

Thank you! Sorry, Cashmere has her moments at times when she doesn't want to come out and play. Hopefully, next time she'll come out and say hello.

Iris G.

Another great day of pup care by Sara! She is excellent with her communication and Rocky clearly loved her! Very grateful for her care and kindness.

Kate K.

Thank you so much for taking him this week! It seems like Milo adores you 😊 we’ll be sure to request you again the next time he’s up here with me.

Thank you Samantha! I'm so glad that you and Cashmere had a nice visit together. She's definitely opening up more, so I'm so grateful for that.

Thank you Megan! Yes, Cashmere tends to get upset when I'm away for too long. I'll be back soon. Thank you for taking such good care of her.

Cheryl was excellent and made us feel very comfortable with our puppy's first walk with a stranger. Hope we could have her walk our pup again

Alex G.

Thank you! It may take a little time for Cashmere to warm up to you. But I really appreciate your efforts to get her comfortable. :0)

Iris G.

Aw. I bet she is starting to like you! Did she do the jumping around on the couch thing? :) Seriously thanks Tori. Appreciate it.

Mark N.

Aw, that's great. It sounds like she really looks forward to seeing you! Thanks for what you're doing, I appreciate it.

Mark N.

Aw. Thanks Victoria. I gave her her heart worm pill and flea and tick pill today too, so maybe that was hitting her.

Mark N.

Thank you Samantha! Cashmere looks so happy with playtime today. Even though she's still shy, I'm sure she had fun.

Iris G.

Aw. Thanks Victoria. Sometimes she doesn't like the rain and humidity. She looks cozy on the couch. Appreciate it.

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Alexandria?

    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 Alexandria?

    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!
