Palo Alto dog walkers in your neighborhood.
I’ve been a pet (dog, birds, and lizards) owner since 2010. I’ve had both a small do and a big dog. I had both a high energized dog and low energized dog. I worked at Pet Food Express last year and I gain knowledge on dogs and cats about their health, hygiene, healthy diet, exercise, and dealt with many different types of dogs. I’m all about teaching our furry friends new things so I will have different healthy treats on me, if your dog is on a certain diet please let me know so we don’t run into any complication. I don’t like to sit around so I’ll always be teaching the dog something new or practicing what it already knows how to do. Hopefully I’ll be a good enough match to watch after your...See Profile
Hi, I’m Kim a Bay Area native, dog & animal lover, and look forward to meeting your furry friend. I’ve had pets all my life, have watched friends pets, and boarded pets in my home. I love spending time with your pups and making sure they have a safe and fun walk!See Profile

How can I book a walk in Palo Alto?
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 Palo Alto?
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!
