Hi! My name is Olivia, and I love all kinds of animals! My family hit their max amount of pets at two dogs, but I’ve been wanting more animals for a few years now. Considering that’s not an option unless I want my parents to disown me, I started watching dogs and cats in my neighborhood. I applied to Rover about six months ago and began walking/watching dogs consistently, and I now have about 5 families as returning customers. I always enjoy getting to drop in and play with the pets and love on them like they’re my own, so getting on Barkly seemed like an easy way to meet more families and their fur babies! My work schedule is very flexible and should make any date or time you need me to spe...See Profile

Growing up on a farm you tend to grow an affinity towards animals from extra small to extra large. I’ve been around animals my whole life and enjoy giving them proper care with their company being an added plus. I work from home so my schedule is pretty flexible. Early mornings, lunch time, and evenings are when I have more freedom but I’m willing to negotiate times as well. I also have a 2 year old miniature schnauzer. He’s got a big personality, loves people and companionship with other dogs.See Profile
Hello! My name is Ruth and I would like to walk your dog.I have been a dog mom for almost 20 years, I currently have six. I know that’s a lot of dogs, but As a rescue volunteer and foster, there have been a few I just couldn’t say goodbye to.I love dogs of all sizes and would enjoy getting out with your pooch for whatever type of walk he likes best; leisurely stroll or brisk walk, long enough to get business taken care of or taking our time to get fresh air and see, hear and smell what’s going on in the neighborhood that day. Your dog will be treated like... well, a dog with lots of head scratches and belly rubs, even a good brushing if he’s a fan. I like to walk in NKY areas I’m familiar...See Profile
The most popular breed in Independence is the Pit Bull. This city has more dog walks with Pit Bulls than any other breed.
How can I book a walk in Independence?
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 Independence?
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!
