Dog Walker in Amherst, MA

Come walk with me, Audrey B! With my many years of experience, education, and certifications I can give your pet the most enrichment out of our time together while providing them a safe environment. I am young and fit enough to handle energetic pets since I competitively ran in high-school until now. I have years of animal care experience, some of which include volunteering at the Westfield Regional Animal Shelter & an animal care internship at the Zoo in Forest Park. Animals are my life and I aspire to be a Wildlife Biologist after graduate school so caring for them has always been a priority of mine. I love all animals and treat them all equally as if they were my own.When you are su...See Profile

I'm Here For All Pet Care Needs!

Hi, my name is Sailor! I have a lot of experience with dogs and cats, and so I am very good at reading and understanding their body language. I will be fast friends with your furry companion. My experience includes a year of pet sitting, volunteer work at various animal shelters, and an internship at the Berkshire Museum where I was responsible for much of the care of the aquariums, amphibians, spiders, and reptiles.See Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Amherst?

    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 Amherst?

    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!
