Des Moines dog walkers in your neighborhood.
I have owned dogs for 52 years, and had exposure to most all sizes. The dogs that have been owned personally range from small to large size; from huskies, poodles to retrievers. Dogs are a life long learning experience. My knowledge is street experience pounding the pavement with my dogs. What has been found is I do not walk them. They walk me. They are the teacher; I am the student. Every dog come in contact with is treated with care, respect, and love. Every dog is held in accountability for safety and behavior both in the home and public. Each dog will receive dependable walking care, combined with a lifetime of training and street wisdom. The dogs, and their health, are a life passion.See Profile

Hi! My name is Berenice, and I love animals! I absolutely love dogs and wish I spend more time with them, so let me help you walk your fur babies!From long walks around the neighborhood, to going to the dog park and playing fetch, I love either. I grew up around dogs all my life, I had a cocker spaniel growing up and I remember visiting my aunt and walking her 7 dogs Saturdays morning with my cousins. From the young springy one who seemed to have boundless amounts of energy, to the reluctant one who only walked for the promise of snacks. I look forward to meeting you and your pets, I'll be sure to give them lots of love and attention.See Profile

I love dogs and being out in nature with them, rain or shine. I have two dogs, a Rottweiler mix named Ziggy and a pitbull named Lola. I have experience walking dogs for a pet rescue and was dubbed the dog whisperer as there is no dog that I can't connect with. I speak their language! I have a reliable vehicle and license. I can identify canine body language and know proper restraints and training techniques. I would love to enrich your pooch's life as they enrich mine! Some of my favorite places to walk are the Soos Creek Trail, Cedar River Trail, and Clark Lake Park.See Profile
The most popular breed in Des Moines is the Manx. This city has more dog walks with Manxs than any other breed.

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 Des Moines?
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!
