Dog Walker in Philadelphia, PA

As a life-long animal lover and someone who grew up around 4-legged friends, I know that a dog isn’t just a pet, it’s a member of the family.

Dog Walker in Philadelphia, PA

Getting to work with dogs professionally, as a means to support myself, has been a true dream. With 5 years under my belt, I now gladly serve both Philadelphian and Manhattanite poochies. I especially love walking/trekking with active dogs, who are ready to tear up a few miles with me outdoors. I additionally work in food, fashion and the arts.

Old City Dog Walking

Not only is this one of the most historical districts in the country, but it is also a very walkable, and pedestrian friendly area for dog walkers. Our Barkly walkers love the rich cultural value of the neighborhood where they can walk on cobblestone streets past Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin’s home, or even Elfreth's Alley which is the oldest continuously inhabited street in America. There is an abundance of blocks in the neighborhood entirely devoted to green space with tall, old oak trees and walking paths perfect for peaceful strolls with your dog.
