Animal Lover: Let Me Spoil Your Fur Baby!

I am an avid animal lover! I have owned both dogs and cats most of my life. While my family only has a cat (Ginger, an orange tabby) currently, I would love to have a dog. I have owned a Labador Retriever, a chow, and a Lhasa Apso’s. However, with very active children we are not home enough to give a dog the attention it deserves. Which is why, I am looking to pet sit, walk, play, etc. Let me spoil your animal when you cant!I am available weekdays between 8 and 1 and some weekends/evenings with notice.See Profile

Dog Walker in Essex, MD

Let me spoil your pets while you are not available! I am an avid animal lover. I have owned both cats and dogs throughout my life. While I currently only have one cat, ginger (an Orange tabby), I would love to have a dog (or two) also. I have owned a Labrador retriever, Lhapso Apso and a chow. However, my children are very involved in athletics which doesn’t leave us home enough to care for an animal the way it deserves. Which is why I am looking to pet sit, dog walk or just play with your fur babies. Let me spoil your pets when you can’t.See Profile

Dog Walker in Essex, MD

Hi! I love and adore all sizes and breeds. My favorite thing to do is go on walks and explore which doggies love to do. I’ve been professionally petsitting for about 3 years but have around 5-6 years of experience altogether. I’m very familiar with elderly dogs and dogs that need special attention as I had a giant dog that had epilepsy and I took care of him everyday. I take pride in being responsible and on time wherever it is I may goSee Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Essex?

    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 Essex?

    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!
