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!

Fishtown is a hub for hipsters and artists with galleries and studios on nearly every block. Barkly walkers appreciate the vibrancy of the neighborhood as well as the narrow, leafy streets lined with quaint row houses. Our Barkly owners take full advantage of the area’s numerous parks and green spaces including Palmer Doggie Park and Penn Treaty Park, which offers serene views of the Delaware River. Fishtown is also known for its handcrafted local breweries, many of which are dog-friendly or have dog-friendly patios.
Thank you for taking care of him! And for the new command :) Just fyi, he's kind of a terrible dog to run with because he refuses to run most of the time, but you should definitely try - maybe he will get the hang of it!
Daphne is amazing! She was not intimidated in the least by Boricio. I definitely felt a sense of calm and control that I haven't felt with other walkers. I hope Daphne will be walking Boricio more!
hah. the neighbors do like to talk - feel free to keep it moving if they're getting weird...good people, but they linger :) thanks as usual!!
Sophia is/was great as always. We really appreciate when she walks Duke as she gives a thorough account of the experience.

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!
