Hey there!!! I am local to the glenmont /Silver spring and Bethesda-Chevy Chase area but work in dc, so I'm all over town! I've handled dogs and cats big and small, old and young, for both walking and overnight care. absolutely love spending time with our four legged friends (and hope the feeling is mutual!)Most walks I take are between the palisades, Tenleytown, downtown Bethesda, silver spring, and Takoma Park (but anywhere in between is fair game!)Can’t wait to meet your best friend!See Profile
I am a longtime animal lover. I have 2 dogs and a cat and a fish aquarium. They all are my babies and I simply live to love and spoil them. They can do no wrong as far as I am concerned. They enrich my life immensely.See Profile
I would describe myself as highly curious and focused on learning in all parts of life, personal and professional. In my professional life, I look for the hardest problems to solve and where I can learn and develop the most.See Profile

These quaint streets are quieter than larger metropolises, making them ideal neighborhoods for our Barkly pet care professionals who are always happy to walk your dog any day of the week!

How can I book a walk in Fairfax?
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 Fairfax?
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!
