Hello!! I love all animals and I have a soft spot for bully breeds and any dog that people say can't be walked. I love sending pictures of us together and the owner saying how happy they are with me 😊See Profile

We got my first dog when I was in elementary school, she was a Rottweiler/Lab mix named Socks. Currently I have a Yellow Lab and American Dalmatian. They were my kids before I had any children. I want to be the best Barkly walker you’ve ever had! This is more than just a side job for me, I very much enjoy and take a lot of pride in doing this. I aspire to give your pup the best care I can.See Profile

Hello! Thank you for considering me to walk your fur baby. I have been a caretaker and lover of animals my whole life, but have been professionally working in pet care for 3 years. I have been very lucky to have worked at a local Golden Retriever rescue, and now I work for the Kentucky Humane Society. I currently reside in the Old Louisville area and would love to enjoy the parks and beautiful scenery with a furry friend!See Profile
Between the shady streets, and tons parks and trails, Louisville is an incredible city for dogs! Barkly dog walkers love taking pups through the rolling hills of the Clifton neighborhood, to the South 4th St District, or over to Waterfront Park to take in the scenery. Barkly customers can book a walker with as little as 60 minutes notice, so we’ll always be there for you and your pup when you need us.
The most popular breed in Louisville is the Boxer. This city has more dog walks with Boxers than any other breed.
Louisville 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.
Louisville ranks #87 of the best cities to be a dog walker for Barkly Pets. We rank our dog walking score by reviewing weather patterns, urban walkability scores, and other data.
Louisville ranks #50 in the top 100 U.S. cities for parks per 100,000 residents, per the 2019 ParkScore. More parks in any given city means more squirrels to chase!
How can I book a walk in Louisville?
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 Louisville?
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!
