Dog Walker in Columbia, MO

Hello, I’m Lexy Pellegrini! I am a college student and I am currently in the paramedic program! I’ve grown up with animals my whole life and absolutely love them, especially dogs! I have a chihuahua of my own and he brings me so much happiness. I absolutely love taking dogs on long walks. I have a very open schedule right now and would love to walk any dog and any size! I live at the links of Columbia and go on walks daily with my dog Benny on the trail that is included with the apartment. It’s a very nice trail and never busy. I walk outside pretty much everyday especially when the weather is nice. I am willing to walk your dog as long as you would like. :)See Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Columbia?

    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 Columbia?

    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!
