Dog Walker in New York, NY

My name is Emmy and I grew up in Wyoming with huskies, Rottweilers, and border collies, but I adore small dogs too. I used to train my family’s dogs in obedience and agility, and now that I’m in New York I enjoy dog walking and volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society in my free time. I’ve been walking dogs with Barkly for several years and would love to meet your pup! See Profile

Dog Walker in New York, NY

Getting to work with dogs professionally, as a means to support myself, has been a true dream. With 5 years under my belt, I now gladly serve both Philadelphian and Manhattanite poochies. I especially love walking/trekking with active dogs, who are ready to tear up a few miles with me outdoors. I additionally work in food, fashion and the arts.

Manhattan Dog Walking

Dog walking in Manhattan is always exciting with endless sights to see and plenty of smells for pups to sniff out. The island of Manhattan is also a grid, making walks super navigable for walkers. A large majority of Manhattan’s population lives in apartment buildings without access to yards, so there is a huge need for walkers. Barkly Pets makes sure that you have access to the best walkers in the city.
