Greetings! My name is Gabriel Onofre Cruz and I would love to assist you in walking your pet. I am currently the owner of a Chihuahua mix, and I enjoy walking him everyday. My dog is 7 years old therefore I believe I am qualified to handle just about any dog. I am an animal lover and firm believer in an animal's right to roam around where he/she pleases within reason. I have always wanted to experience the feeling of walking another dog to see how he/she compares with mine. I throughly enjoy walking as it is both a healthy thing to do and you can experience the beautiful sights that the city has to offer. By far, my favorite destination is near Lake Shore Drive because of the long trail walk...See Profile
Hello! I'm a college student looking to give the good boys and girls of this world the love and care they deserve. I have lived, breathed, and worked for animals since childhood. From cleaning up after and being chased around the house by the family kitten, to adopting my second cat while on a camping trip, to training and raising both family dogs through those difficult midnight-pee puppy stages. I walk in the northwest suburbs and relish the opportunity to discover new and memorable walking paths. I treat my walking companions as I do my own sweet dogs, and give them both physical and mental exercise to help them thrive. After 10 years of cat experience I like to consider myself an expert...See Profile
Hi there! My name is Marissa and with my years of pet care experience, I believe I would be the perfect fit for you and your fur baby! As a walker, you can expect me to be punctual, reliable, and always loving. I hold every certification Barkly offers, including agressive dog management, harness training, and positive reinforcement, to name a few. I am available Mondays-Thursdays in the evenings and all hours on Fridays-Sundays. I myself have two dogs and a cat so I understand the importance of finding someone trustworthy to care for your pet. With my work ethic and calming nature, I believe I can put you at ease when it comes to pet care. I look forward to connecting with you and your pet!See Profile
Full time employee at an animal hospital as a daycare counselor while also training to be a veterinarian assistant. I have two mixed pit bulls at home and while I could be lacking some professional dog walking experience, I have tons of personal experience that I hope will also be beneficial. I am always in good spirits and will make sure your pet has the best time on their walk.See Profile
The most popular breed in Union Ridge is the Miniature Pinscher. This neighborhood has more dog walks with Miniature Pinschers than any other breed.
How can I book a walk in Chicago?
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 Chicago?
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!
