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
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

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 great care of Aslan while we were away on vacation! We're back home now and he's quite a happy little guy.
Thanks for taking such good care of Aslan! (And our apologies for the litterbox odor up there -- ugh. We're working on it.)
Thanks, Darwin, for also moving our packages/deliveries from the porch into the house! We really appreciate it!

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!
