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

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

Shannon was a life-saver on a morning when my leasing office opened later than usual. She assisted me in changing my dog’s appointment time right away and got into the apartment a few min early since our appointment was delayed. You can rely on Shann...

Jillian D.

Shannon was so communicative the day before and day of the walk. She gave me moment-by-moment updates when I asked for them and was nice enough to check Ziva's crate for wetness and leave a light on for her. Ziva and I highly recommend Shannon!

Jillian D.

Roman was really great at communicating (we texted night before and day of), and was very understanding of a new puppy's route and unpredictability. Ziva seemed very comfortable with him as well!

Jillian D.

Monica always calls or let’s us know when she notices anything odd or different with our dogs, especially if they have been a little sick. Really appreciate the special attention

Lillian F.

Thank you for getting to Ziva so quickly when a situation arose with limited access to the apartment key! I appreciated the clear communication and detailed notes about the walk.

Jillian D.

Very responsible and mindful of our security. Always makes sure she guards the key well and reaches out if she sees anything out of the ordinary at home. Very helpful!

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!
