Dog Walker in Norfolk, VA

Hello, my name is Adriana. Are you looking for an active dog walker who would take your dog on a high speed walk or even a run? Then I would be a great match for your dog. I have been active all my life and served in the Dutch navy for several years. I always had dogs myself and loved training them and taking them on long walks. I think every dog deserves to go on adventures and do what dogs do best. Walk, sniff, play and test limits.See Profile

Ready To Take A Stroll With Your Pup!

I love animals! And they love me! I have 20+ years experience in caring for dogs of all sizes. I’ve cared for a few different breeds of my own and for family/friends. I have cared for dogs with health problems/special needs and can administer medication. I can take your fur baby to a park or beach if preferred. I love to have company on a walk and would love to have your fur baby as a doggy partner. I can also provide treats and water while out on the town with your dog. Thank you and hope to be hearing from you soon!See Profile

  • How can I book a walk in Norfolk?

    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 Norfolk?

    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.
