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

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
Hello! I look forward to walking and spending time with your pet!See Profile
I loved the detail Tanner provided about his first walk with Bulleit, and it was helpful to know what made Bulleit nervous (we're still working on desensitizing him and he's sometimes fearful), and also to see how happy he looked in the picture! It'...
Thanks for letting us know about the pee.. yes it is a side effect of his chemo that we noticed so starting today he is taking a break from that drug. I really appreciate you letting us know so saw that though!!
Bulleit was very unsettled by a maintenance worker in the apartment while he was in the kennel, and becomes very frightened. I appreciated the communication to let me know how stressful this was for him.
Bulleit obviously loves Talley and feels so comfortable with her - great communication with me, especially since Bulleit (as a rescue pup) is often easily frightened.
Thanks so much! I really appreciate your notes and photo, thanks for running a bit with her since she was energetic. Hope you both stayed warm! :)
Great communication and care of Bulleit! I really appreciate Nelly's attention to detail and the care she provided. So sweet! Thank you!!
Just wait until there is snow on the ground. He loves to eat it, and make snow pup angels (aka he rolls all around like a goof)!
Thanks so much Ethan! It looks like Folly is enjoying his walks! Next time he is back in town we will be sure to let you know!
I know the weather today was not ideal but I appreciate the dedication y3o making sure my boys were fed while I'm out of town.
Thanks Ethan! He loves the cold and especially snow. We have to drag him inside when he is at home in the back yard.
Thank you for letting me know how sick Ella was. I left work when I got your message and we are at the vet now.
Thanks so much Michele! He loves attention, so once you start petting his head, he won’t leave you alone. Hah!
Thank you so much Ethan! Glad he didn’t try to eat any napkins today, hah! Have a great holiday weekend.
Meredith, did everything we asked and more. Very vigilant of request and is definitely a dog person.
Thank you so much. Yes, Harper is the social butterfly of the family, while Kobe is the old man lol.
Great communication and note following the walk. Bulleit clearly loves his new friend! Thank you.
So glad you liked it! And thank you so much for walking him this week. Have a happy thanksgiving!
Thank you so much for taking care of Rocco. Happy to hear that he was so excited and welcoming!
Thank you soo much. So glad you got him to poop and praised him. Definitely outstanding service!
Thanks Meredith. Love the Sheba pics. I appreciate the recaps. Sign, overly concerned dog Dad.

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!
