The small town of Kensington is a strong community of dog lovers. Barkly customers and walkers will find charming streets lined with quaint boutiques and cute coffee shops. Dogs are welcome at any of the seven wonderful parks in Kensington, all of which are filled with tall leafy trees, landscaped gardens, open grassy fields, and public art. Our customers love living so close to Rock Creek Regional Park, where they can enjoy hikes with their dog on over 13 miles of trails through woodlands along scenic lake shores.
Thank you SO MUCH for taking good care of my dogs - esp. the younger one. This is the first time we've left her alone since we got her and I was soooo nervous. I'm SO HAPPY you took good care of her. Can't thank you enough!
Thank you Beth! I find texts confirming that youre coming infinitely reassuring. Appreciate the walk report too! I'm sure he really appreciated getting out in the middle of the day.
I love the picture of her with the bunny pillow! THANK YOU. I saved it on my desktop at work and look at it when I'm having a bad day. Thanks again! - Tracy
She was kind enough to take it upon herself to put a perishable package in our fridge. Now THAT’S service! What a great dog walker.
I really appreciate hearing directly from carers in the walk report and direct texts too. it's very reassuring. Thank you!
Thanks for taking care of Snooki. We'll keep her on soft food for lunch for the next 1-2 weeks until her gums are healed.
I got to meet her as I came home early. What a nice person! I hope she gets to walk our dogs again.
Thanks, Daniel! Yeah, he looks really sleepy...thanks for the photo. Hope you're well. Deb

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