Customer Reviews

Fan-frickin-tastic! She communicated with me via text this AM to let me know that she actually read all the instructions. Whiskers looked happy on her walk and was fed properly. And my house was the same way I left it. Wish I could have her everyday!...

Abreya H.

Thank you so much for texting us about noticing her issues, I am so sorry I forgot to update the Notes. Her medicine worked fast, and here's hoping Callie is all cleared up by her next visit in a couple weeks. It means a lot that you noticed and thou...

Daniel S.

Thank you so much Jessica, Callie was in a great mood when we got home! Thank you for some over the top initial accident cleanup, she is still working on that. Our new materials (harness, food storage) arrived today and should be ready for tomorrow.

Daniel S.

I can't say enough good things about Stefanie: She's communicative over little things, and goes out of her way when it's a bigger thing, and I'm so appreciative of how much she truly enjoys spending time with Bea and how wonderful she is with her.

Christina T.

Thank you as always for the detail! Callie went to the vet for evaluation of her surgery scar, and she had dome nervous bathroom afterward, so it's not a worry today. She should be in good shape next week for normal walks again!

Daniel S.

Thank you for the info, especially regarding her bathroom. She had some car anxiety with last night's training class, and she had an evacuation after that. Hopefully she's back to her normal movements tonight.

Daniel S.

Thanks so much! She is a goofball and loves to play with other dogs at the dog park and daycare when she attends. She is usually not the only dog in the home so she is adjusting to that.

Abreya H.

Thank you so much! I have been manually updating notes each day, because they were created in bulk but have to be updated 1 at a time...oh well. Callie got away with a double lunch today!

Daniel S.

Thank you Jessica, it means a lot that you notice all the little details about the day-to-day behavior of Callie...we really feel like you take the time to know what our pup needs!

Daniel S.

Virginia developed an instant rapport with Chuck that makes us very happy. We enjoy the detailed notes about their walks and Virginia's attention to Chuck's safety and happiness.

David P.

Thank you very much Jessica! We'll take some time this weekend to make Callie feel that her crate is a great place and not just a sign that a fun person is leaving

Daniel S.

Thank you for the feedback, she began that habit last night. I will be working on how to encourage a better walking habit for her over the weekend.

Daniel S.

What a great picture! Thank you as always for taking care of Callie! We will keep an eye on her leg, she played pretty hard at day care yesterday

Daniel S.

Thank you so much for spending the time with Callie. Hopefully by next week her stitches will be out and she will be ready for her longer walks!

Daniel S.

Thanks for being so attentive to Lennon! He LOVES being outside and it’s today you went above and beyond to let him enjoy his outside time

Alie M.

I always love reading Stefanie’s recaps. I truly believe she loves spending time with Lennon. He wants to know if we can adopt her.

Alie M.

Thank you for still taking the time to keep Callie active when she refused to walk, I guess she's not used to the cold rain yet

Daniel S.

We're glad she was good today! She went to her first day of day care yesterday, we weren't sure if she would be lazy tired

Daniel S.

Thank you as always. Your communication and updates are very much appreciated and you really go above and beyond!

Daniel S.

Thank you for taking her out in the gloomy weather, I'm glad she didn't insist on a long rainy walk

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 Bethesda?

    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.
