Dog Walker in Raleigh, NC

Hi, I'm Shelby and I've been working with animals professionally for fifteen years. I have experience in dog daycares, grooming shops, training and boarding facilities. I currently work full time at an animal shelter. I'm calm and patient with shy or anxious pets (but have no trouble handling the high energy pups, too!) I also have experience caring for cats and small pets. I'm experienced in giving meds and preparing special diets if needed. I will provide reports after each visit and of course, lots of pictures for the pet parent. They'll be treated just like my own pets during their time with me. Please let me know how I can best help you and your pet while you're away!See Profile

Comfort, care, and fun - Former Vet Assistant

I’ve always had a passion for taking care of animals ever since I was little. My passion led me to being a veterinary assistant for three years. I have experience with dogs who have anxiety through work and my own dog. I have a lot of patience with them and enjoy working with them. It’s a great feeling when they warm up to you and trust you. I’ve taken care of dogs my whole life. I am comfortable walking dogs who pull and who are hyper/excitable. I live in a very quiet neighborhood and often walk my dogs around. I always have a bag with a water bowl and cold water to make sure the fur baby doesn’t get over heated. I always check the ground to make sure it’s not too hot for their paw pads! I...See Profile

I have a passion for animals and I have 4 fur babies of my own and a bearded dragon. I truly believe humans don’t deserve dogs/cats, pets in general. I’d love to have fur babies to walk as a job! Your fur babies will definitely be safe and sound with me!See Profile

Dog Walker in Raleigh, NC

I’ve always had a love for animals and enjoy giving them attention and care. I’ve accidentally made a career from friends calling me to house & pet sit as I'm thorough with providing updates, sending pictures/videos, playing with and love cuddling animals too. I’ve recently added behavioral and dog training to my skills. I love power walking, so rest assured that your dogs will be exercised if they enjoy and/or require it as well. I cannot wait to assist you with all of your dog walking needs!See Profile

Treating Your Fur-babies As My Own

Hi, my name is Jessie! I am a Veterinary Technician at an animal hospital in Cary.

I have been a Veterinary Technician for the last 2 years and a dog sitter for at least 8 years. I currently reside in downtown Fuquay with my 3 dogs and 1 cat, Indi, Grizzly, Rooster, and Phoenix.

  • How can I book a walk in Raleigh?

    Download our app or create an account from our website. Once logged in, select "Book a Walk."

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 Raleigh?

    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.
