Dog Walker in Bethesda, MD

Hello, My name is Anaba Wachuku. Currently, I am an EMR consultant, but attending the Onsite Full stack Boot Camp at Coding Dojo. I've grown up with and around dogs my whole life, and have had a natural affinity for animals. I don't recall a time when I haven't had a dog or ferret(s), or fish in my house. My two boys are Simba a big headed Rottweiler, and Bandit a cuddly fluff of Pomeranian banditry (white). A couple of years ago, I trained Simba for a dog show competition doing protection and obedience training. Simba and I went on to win first place in the obedience category, and a couple other awards also for the fashion show category. Bandit loves to go on walks and claim his territory...See Profile

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 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.

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 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.

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.

Chuck is always happy to see Mara and eager to walk with her, even if he's being a jerk with us.

David P.

Yukiko is the best! Our dogs love her. She is very good at communication with the owners.

Amanda C.

Thank you so much for giving her that attention. I know it can be difficult in the rain!

Kim H.

Thank you for being so sweet with a Nala and for your kind note! Appreciate your help!

Alie M.

Patrick was on time, very nice and seemed comfortable with our pup. Thank you!

Love that photo! Glad he’s warmed up to you (despite the weather outside!) ha!

  • How can I book a walk in Bethesda?

    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 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.
