Hi, my name is Beth. I live in Alexandria, Virginia with my husband, two cats (Ozzie and Harriet), and lots of fish. In my free time, I love to camp and scuba dive. I work a full-time job in an office, so I love to take long walks when I get home for exercise and as stress relief. I’ve always had pets in my home, so I know that they are members of the family! I will make sure that your dog is well taken care of and given lots of love while you are out.See Profile

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.

    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.
