Hey there!!! I am local to the glenmont /Silver spring and Bethesda-Chevy Chase area but work in dc, so I'm all over town! I've handled dogs and cats big and small, old and young, for both walking and overnight care. absolutely love spending time with our four legged friends (and hope the feeling is mutual!)Most walks I take are between the palisades, Tenleytown, downtown Bethesda, silver spring, and Takoma Park (but anywhere in between is fair game!)Can’t wait to meet your best friend!See Profile
My name is Ebony, I've loved animals all my life and I currently have two fur babies which are a cat named Dakota and a dog whose name is Raine! In my spare time I enjoy working out at the gym and getting fit. Moreover, I enjoy having the opportunity to interact with other families and seeing the love they have for their pets. Please know that I will treat your animals as if they were my own pets!See Profile

Hi! My name is Heather and I am a 27 year old woman that has been working as a Professional Pet Care Provider for 5 years now. I grew up on a farm in Powhatan, Va with all kinds of animals but most importantly I grew up with 7 dogs (big & small). I love all dogs & cats and am very confident around them. I treat all animals as if they are my own and I will go out of my way to make sure you and your pets feel safe and happy in my care :) I’m trustworthy and can accommodate whatever your needs are for your dog’s walk ! I am very reliable and I have a very flexible schedule. This is not only a job to me as it is something that I love and am very passionate about! I hope to meet you and your pets...See Profile
I am in debt to this beautiful planet for its wildlife and plant life. Any way that I can be part of the natural world is good. I have a degree in music and creative writing, poetry. I used to teach first year writing at the community college.See Profile
Officially nicknamed the “urban village” for its retail, service, and residential center. The area is popular for shows and productions and is known as “Arlington’s Art and Entertainment District”. When you enjoy a night out in this buzzing district, you can be sure your furry loved one is in good hands when you book with a Barkly Pets walker! Also, you’ll definitely want to check out Wags and Whiskers-- a dog and cat festival held annually every August in the neighborhood.
Karen was great and even bravely walked them both at once. Really happy with Barkly, easy to use and from what I can tell, great walkers. Thanks!
She was so patient working with concierge to get a key to the office to get to my puppies and communicated with me the whole time.
Thanks for taking such good care of Aslan! (And our apologies for the litterbox odor up there -- ugh. We're working on it.)
Thanks for taking great care of Aslan while we were away on vacation! We're back home now and he's quite a happy little guy.
Thanks, Darwin, for also moving our packages/deliveries from the porch into the house! We really appreciate it!
I'm glad you alerted me to Mina's paw -- I'll check it out as soon as I get home tonight. Thanks so much!
I'm so appreciative of Vinee's help administering meds and taking such loving care of my pups!

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!
