I love walking dogs around the East Bay and have been doing so for 5+ years and also have a car to travel to you if needed. I have a Doberman named Beau who just turned 2.

I made my career taking care of families and their loved ones many years ago. It was incredibly rewarding and busy. It required I be extremely detailed oriented and most of all responsible. I was lucky to be able to share my pets with my clients, which meant I didn’t have to worry too much about fitting in long walks at the end of the day. I recently moved which meant reducing my clientele. I spend my spare time taking care of my dog - she is my world. The next best thing to spending time with my own fur-baby, is being able to enjoy someone else’s. Giving our dogs the time they need outside exercising can be a challenge. I’m looking forward to getting to know your pet while I help you give t...See Profile
Your dog deserves the best, and that’s exactly what I offer! My whole life I had grown up surrounded by my family’s dogs until 1 year ago when I finally adopted a rescue dog of my own! Throughout my life I have dealt with aggressive dogs, hyperactive dogs and fearful dogs so I do have excellent first hand experience working with “troubled” dogs. I always come prepared for any scenario that may occur during our walk (i.e. out of poop bags?! I brought my own!) If you would like to learn more about me please feel free to contact me!See Profile

How can I book a walk in Richmond?
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 Richmond?
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!
