Dog Walker in Dorchester, MA

My name is Dominique Patrick! I have owned dogs all of my life, growing up I’ve always wanted to be a veterinarian! I have a passion in caring for/loving dogs! I decided to work with dogs professionally, walking/boarding until I got pregnant back in early 2018 so unfortunately I had to put it all on hold. That really took a toll on me emotionally. Thats when I knew what I loved and needed to do. Recently I am looking to get back out and do what I love most now that my youngest child is 6 months old and a bit more independent. I’m looking forward to being active and meeting my new fur buddies! My goal is to continue pursuing my calling in the animal field and make a great impact where I can....See Profile

Experienced Caring Dog Walker

I had a German Shepherd for 13 years that I'll never forget. Presently I have 2 cats and really miss spending time with dogs. Walking dogs is ideal for me because I also enjoy being outdoors. I've completed more than 500 walks which have allowed me to learn how to adapt to each dog and be able to satisfy their needs. Their spontaneous joy is contagious and I take my time to make the dog feel safe and have as great of a time as possible.See Profile

Dog Walker in Dorchester, MA

My name is Olivia. I am 26 years old and currently working in Museum Education at a Boston museum. I own 3 dogs: a 15 year-old Border Terrier named Toffee, a 7 year-old Pekingese named Coco, and a recent rescue with special needs-Nila. I have been dog sitting/walking on and off for the past 3 years. I have experience working with all age ranges of dogs, and many different breeds, just to name a few: German Shepard Mix, Lab/Pit Mix, Collies and Yorkshire Terriers.

I want to give you and your dog the best experience possible with extra care (and alway...See Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Dorchester?

    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 Dorchester?

    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!
