Dog Walker in Oakland, MI

Hi there! My name is Caitlin and I already love your pet as much as mine! I live in Ferndale and work in Novi and walk everywhere in-between! I have a Husky and German Shepherd that are the sweetest and most loving members of our family. I try my hardest, but can never seem to get rid of all the fur on my clothes! I've been walking dogs with Wag! and petsitting for officially six months now and I'm looking to grow my clientele. As a walker, you can expect that your dog(s) will receive lots of love and care. I'll send as many pictures and adorable videos as you can handle on our walk!See Profile

Can’t Wait To Meet And Take Care Of Your Fur Babies

I’ve had animals my whole life. Dogs and cats to lizards and snakes. Being able to hang with any pup for even a short period of time during the day you can’t go wrong. No matter the mood you are in they are always happy to see you and there is nothing better than that unconditional love. I’ll make sure your dog gets the walking they need and even help with feedings and make sure they have water. Anything to make sure the pup is happy when I leave.See Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Oakland?

    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 Oakland?

    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!
