My name is Christine DiCosimo. I love animals especially dogs. I have two dogs myself, a border collie standard poodle mix and a staffordshire terrier. My pets are not just pets they are part of my family. I have a degree in political science and work in politics as well as walking dogs and taking care of animals. I volunteer for the Houston Humane Society and walk dogs there as well. I support the Humane Society as opposed to other shelters because they do not euthanize. When I take care of your animal I believe in keeping them in a routine, making sure they can feel the same love you make them feel (as much as I can), and making sure they are healthy. I believe in showing up on time making...See Profile

I love dogs I would like to say that first, I used to work in a kennel and many of the dogs were almost like best friends, i used to watch over, large breed to small breed dogs, I would also clean and make sure kennels were kept up with, I’d also like to include that many of the dogs would get take on walks or take out of their kennels and go to the “playground”, I’ve lived with dogs all my life and walked and trained, I’m not a certified trainer but I have tons of patience and enjoy watching pups learn, just as us humans do, and I hope to have an opportunity to help walk, and meet your pets as well and treat them as if they were my own and build a relationship with them as anyone else would...See Profile
How can I book a walk in Houston?
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 Houston?
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!
