Jacksonville dog walkers in your neighborhood.
Experience with cats, dogs, rodents, rabbits and birds. I have owned almost every type of animal throughout my years. Currently own a pomsky, hedgehog and 2 cats! I do not discriminate against breeds, age or size. Love all types of animals and will take care them like my own/how you like. Work as a registered nurse 3 days out of the weeks, flexible hours usually Sunday-Wednesday. Will do late night and on demand walks if needed. I am very trustworthy and able to follow directions. If there’s an issue I will not hesitate to call or text you, just want your baby to be taken care of to the fullest. I am easy to get a hold of and I can provide updates when you want.See Profile
Hi! I have been walking dogs professionally for two years. I reside in NE Jacksonville but travel to work with pets. I also service a number of cats! Following the owner’s request is my goal as well as exercising your pet(s). I hope to meet your pet soon!See Profile
Hi, I’m Alena! One of my favorite hobbies in life is being with animals, especially dogs. I have volunteered with the Virginia Beach SPCA, and I like to spend my time doing pet sittings, walking, and doing the dog’s day out program with Jax Humane Society whenever I’m available. My family has two Havanese pups and a senior schnauzer that I love to care for when I visit my family. Thank you for considering me and have a great day!See Profile
I'm Kelli. I'm from Jacksonville Florida and I work part time at a sea turtle hospital. When I'm not working, I'm spending time with my dog, Bruno. He is a 7 year old black lab/terrier mix. I also go to school for ecology and evolution and for vet tech.See Profile
Jacksonville, or Jax as locals have nicknamed the city, is a cultural hub that has recently seen a large growth of hipsters and trendy establishments partially due to having the youngest population in Florida. There are 22 miles of pristine beaches and over 450 city parks spanning more than 80,000 acres making Jacksonville the largest urban park system in the nation. With the extensive amount of outdoor recreations available, Jax is truly a paradise city for dog walking! And we make finding a consistent walker a breeze in paradise city. When you use Barkly to find a professional dog walker in Jacksonville, you can book through the same independent dog walker every single time!
The most popular breed in Jacksonville is the Plott. This city has more dog walks with Plotts than any other breed.
Jacksonville has a low amount of greenery compared to pavement. This area’s parkland compared to overall area is low. A greener canopy for cities improves the quality of dog walks for both the dogs and dog walkers.

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