Hi! My name is Ashley, and I love walking with your dog! I started dog walking and dog sitting while I was still in college and fell in love with working with dogs, and their humans. It brings me a lot of happiness getting to know each individual dog. I love going on walks to your dogs favorite park, playing ball in the yard or just cuddling on the couch. I'm comfortable helping with giving oral medications (if needed). I'll make sure to be there for your dog whenever you can't be! Looking forward to hearing from you soon :)See Profile
I’m a professional pet friend and a huge animal lover. My pet sitting experience has mainly been for friends and family, however, I have had an array of pets since childhood - from dogs to hamsters to horses, chickens, pigs, fish & everything in between. I currently have a 1 year-old German Shepherd named Maliyah and a 6 month-old Boxer named Guiliana who are the biggest love-bugs you could ever imagine. I will treat your dog like they’re my own family. Your dog will walk (or run), play and be pampered with lots of love. Don’t be surprised if your pooch doesn’t want to leave at the end of the day. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I look forward to getting to know your dog!See Profile

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.

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!
