Ceira was wonderful! She was so considerate, and communicated really well. She was so patient with mason, As he takes a bit to warmUp to strangers, and ended up befriending him and giving him a great walk 2 days in a row! So grateful for her help!

Alex was amazing! Appreciated her communication before the walk and that she paid attention to my notes and took Khaleesi to the dog park to play. Thank you Alex!

Cake's harness is on backwards again in this picture. Do I have to put labels on it so this stops happening? The EZ Walker harness is a popular dog harness.

Michael L.

Thanks for the detail! He had a big weekend so he may have just wanted to go inside to get back to sleep! But he definitely needed the long walk.

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Arlington?

    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 Arlington?

    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!
