One of the best parts about me is that I am a full-time dog walker, so I am completely dedicated to your pup’s happiness! After all, no one likes to keep their pooch crated up when they’re away, so it’s my pleasure to be able to give them all the happiness they need to thrive. I’m also happy to work with unorthodox schedules, for those instances when your pup needs attention outside of ‘normal business hours.’ As a full-time walker, I’ve taken care of hundreds of animals, so your pup will always be in experienced hands!I absolutely love to get out and explore, so your pup will be right at home with me if they enjoy having adventures! After all, I believe that a healthy pup is a happy pup,...See Profile

Hey John - thanks so much for dealing with the weather and taking Fred out for us!! although he may not enjoy the rain - glad he had a nice towel off with you :) that is indeed his favorite part!
Thank you for your help today! Also about his stool - think it’s because he saw me take my suitcase out today and that always gets him upset :(. Have a good rest of your day!
Ben - that honestly was so nice of you taking him out longer, totally didnt have to :) but very much appreciated!! I hope he gets to walk with you soon as well :)

Thanks Audrey! That would have been an epic walk across the Schuylkill! Appreciate your help and I’m glad he was an energetic pup for you.
Marcus was very patient and kind. Ginger takes a while to warm up and he put in the time to make her feel comfortable and gain his trust.

How can I book a walk in Philadelphia?
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 Philadelphia?
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!
