Dog Walker in Leicester, NC

Hey, I’m Cortney! I’m originally from Minnesota but have been living in the Asheville area for a few months now. I have always loved animals and have been taking care of all kinds of pets from a very young age. I have helped numerous neighbors help care for their pets! I have worked at Petsmart before in their PetCare department where I worked with gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, cats, birds, reptiles, fish and more. I also volunteer a lot at humane societies and pet rescues. I have fostered 4 dogs before and decided to keep one of them, my dog Nise. I would love to be your sitter and I will take great care of your fun-loving pet!See Profile

** Trustworthy & always punctual **

Hi! My name is Kaitlyn Stinson :) I have been surrounded by, and have cared for animals my entire life. Developing strong bonds with dogs especially is something that comes natural to me. I look at them not only as pets, but family!! I currently have 1 dog- Brownie Ray-Bandz who is my absolute WORLD, and his family playmates- Pixi and Bella make frequent visits! My husband and I trained Brownie ourselves using positive reinforcement, and we have even taught him a great handful of tricks as well! It took a lot of patience, but it comes easy when one has a passion for it!! We love frequent walks around the neighborhood, taking cute pics, and playing fetch! I can assure you that I will treat yo...See Profile

Kind Hearted Pet Lover!

Hi I'm Amy I have owned dogs for almost all my life. I currently have three big dogs. They are my fur babies and they mean so much to me. I've cooked them there own home meals and enjoy playing with them on my off time. They are older so they mainly lay around all day now. I'm looking forward to meeting many more pups to walk and show love too!!See Profile

Dog Walker in Leicester, NC

You want a quality dog-walker? Look no further! I’m a dog mom to a 6yo, insanely awesome Jack Russell/Blue Heeler mix. (that’s clear if you look at my social media) He goes everywhere with me, and I even use him as a therapeutic add-on for some of my clients when we do house calls for massage. I’ve worked with animals on different levels for years. Was employed at Pet Supermarket for over 2years, worked on farms with horses teaching equine therapy, and have been a pet sitter for many friends and relatives. Everything from horses, to dogs, to bearded dragons! I love them all. I currently only work three nights a week so my schedule is pretty available to spend some time with your pups!See Profile

Dog Walker in Leicester, NC

Hey there! My name is Morgan and I am one of the OG Barkly walkers from NYC! I just graduated from the Drama School at The New School and moved to Asheville to escape the pandemic and be near family. When I’m not walking pups, I can be found giving ghost tours of Asheville or hanging out on the couch with my sweet 3 year old Frenchie named Kevin. I am excited to explore the city with your pup! As a former New Yorker, I am currently following all CDC Covid-19 guidelines and then some. I wear my mask indoors anywhere that is not myhome and I hand sanitize often. Happy to cooperate with any personal covid-related guidelines you have as well.See Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Leicester?

    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 Leicester?

    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!
