Upper West Side dog walkers in your neighborhood.
Hi! My name is Kayla! I was inspired by the dogs I grew up with in my family to make it my life’s mission to be of service to all animals and make sure they are treated with upmost respect and love. I’m an experienced dog walker and caretaker. I’m very attentive, patient, and protective of the furry family. I’m from NYC but spent my college years in Ithaca, NY so I love the outdoors. I’m also a brand ambassador for Barkly and certified in First Aid & CPR for dogs and cats. In addition to walking dogs, I also bake healthy treats for them and take photos of them with my Fujifilm cameras. I would love to meet your pup, show them some love, and go on an adventure together!See Profile
I am a 26 year old pet care enthusiast! I have taken care of animals my entire life, from dogs to cats to hamsters, birds, chickens, and more! Though I have never been a professional dog walker, I have regularly dog sat for professors, family, and friends for the last 6 years. Also a lover of the great outdoors, there's nothing better than enjoying a lovely walk with a pup.See Profile

It should come as no surprise that the Upper West Side is the birthplace of dog walking. The quiet streets, and close proximity to Central Park and Riverside Park, make it among Manhattan’s best neighborhoods to own a dog. You will find Barkly Pets dog walkers on streets like Amsterdam Avenue, and look for us on the weekends playing in the park with other dogs on the Upper West Side
Really great personality and lovely caring person. Tiger doesn’t even come out for most humans but he took to her immediately... never seen that before! Thanks!
Amazing! Want to work with Jessica again! She was very mindful of keeping in touch and communicating with me about how the visit went. Thank you!
Thanks for the great walk! The boys were nice and tired when we got back. Also thanks for being flexible with the time change!
Seeing the boys freak out when you walk in is how a dog walker should be greeted!! They love you Pablo, thank you so much!!
Darcy had fantastic things to say about Chris. He particularly liked the way he bagged his 3 poops. Very good technique.
Clara was an amazing walker who always kept us up to speed on what was going on. Banksy will definitely miss her!
Absolutely delighted by our first Barkly walk! Jessica was great, and we can’t wait to work with her again!!
Thanks Michelle. She wasn’t feeling well when I got home but o think she’s starting to feel better
Terrific guy who seems really attuned to a dog's disposition. Will be happy to use him again.
You are the best!!! Seriously!! Thank you for spending some extra time with the boys!!
Thanks for taking care of the boys, drying them off, and overall being terrific!!
I am laughing so hard at this picture!! I’m guessing he saw a squirrel! 😂
Thank you so much Maria!! Darcy and Schroeder love their walks with you!!
Your note had us laughing 😆 thank you for taking great care of the boys!
You're the best Pablo! Thanks for the longer walks and thoughtful notes!
Thank you so much for taking the time with Saffy. She loves snuggling!
Thanks for the great walk, Ivonne!! I know the boys loved it!!

How can I book a walk in New York?
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 New York?
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!
