Dog Walker in Pittsburgh, PA

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

Dog Walker in Pittsburgh, PA

I have spent my entire life caring for animals. I grew up on a farm where my family raised all types of animals including cows, goats, rabbits and especially dogs and cats! From this experience I understand how to handle a variety of situations like medical emergencies, misbehavior, and reading an animal’s emotions. Each animal is different, and I love getting to know each one’s unique personality. At the end of the day, I just want to love on your fur babies and make their lives special.See Profile

Dog Walker in Pittsburgh, PA

Hello my name is Jessica. I can honestly say Animals have always been apart of my life. Growing up I always wanted to work with dogs for my career. Dog training is my passion. I’m hoping to one day do it full time. For the past few years I have ran a non profit incorporated rescue that I have currently put on pause but hope to one day start it up again. In doing so I have learned a lot about animals and how to care for them. I would love to care for and walk your dog or dogs. I love all breeds and sizes, cats or dogs. Working with animals is the highlight of my life and I couldn’t imagine a life without them.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.
