I Would Love To Assist You In Walking Your Dog!

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

Future Vet Dog Walker

I have grown up with dogs my entire life. I have had three Saint Bernards, so I can handle all shapes and sizes of dogs. My neighbors used to have me animal sit their cats whenever they went out of town, and I nannied for a family who had two dogs and took care of their dogs when needed. I would walk your dog around the Northwestern campus, if you live near it, otherwise I would take the dog for a nice long walk around your neighborhood. Going through Northwestern would be nice for dogs who are not shy because many students would love to be able to pet your puppy. This would end with your dog receiving a nice walk and 1,000 pets from students. I am aspiring to be a veterinarian and would lov...See Profile

Dog Walker in Evanston, IL

Hi pet lovers, my name is Gift. I’m energetic, outgoing and responsible. I spend my childhood & most of my adult life raising & taking care of the animals in my home with my family. I grew up in a home with parents that took in & fostered stray dogs/cats that needed to be cared for and given a home. Playing fetch, going for runs on a trail, walks by park/lakefront/beach, grooming, or teaching basic obedience/training are just a few of the things i’ve loved doing with my pets & any animal i’ve been lucky to have shared time with. I’ve learned to understand their natures and to have the necessary patience required for them as well. Pets is my best friend. Thank you so muchSee Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Evanston?

    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 Evanston?

    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!
