Dog Walker in Kensington, MD

My friends call me LB! I grew up in West Virginia with a few mix breed dogs throughout my childhood. My dogs were, without a doubt, my first best friend. Not only were they my best friends but they motivated me to have my 2nd job which was walking dogs (delivering newspapers was my first!). I’ve been walking with Barkley here and there for a couple of years. As a result of covid-19 I have a lot more time on my hands and I’m looking to meet YOUR furry friend and take them for a walk.See Profile

Dog Walker in Kensington, MD

As a member of the United States Air Force I have had interactions with some of the best trained dogs and members. Day and night we are entrusted to work confidently and successfully in order to complete the task at hand. Dogs have been apart of my life growing up and I would be responsible for taking care of them. Through walking I've learned that dogs are apart of their owns and that they rely on a trusting relationship. Given the opportunity to take care of your animal I will do my best to provide a calming, exciting, and trustworthy experience for your pets.See Profile

In fact I am a mother of two (Jes a Maltese Terrier who is older and Lexy a Labrador puppy who has just began her wonderful life). I have been dog sitting, walking, and grooming for years (5 approximately) it started out as watching dogs in the proximity of their owners then being paid to walk them, babysit them for weeks, or groom them. I have first aid experience with dogs just Incase your dog might need any assistance and I am prepped to work alongside any accommodations your dog might need such as frequent water breaks or decreased movement...See Profile

Dog Walker in Kensington, MD

My name is Yamileth, but you may call me Yami. I'd love to help! Being a dog and cat owner I know the burden one can feel when life gets a little hectic and you might not have enough time for your pet. When you hire me I can come as needed or ideally multiple days a week, So that when you come home from a busy day of work you can breathe a little easier knowing that your pet has been taken care of. I am energetic and I love routines.See Profile

Common Questions

  • 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!
