Hello, my name is Jenn and I have been an animal person my entire life. Dogs are one of my favorite animals. I have volunteered at an animal shelter for ten years. I work with the puppies/dogs walking them and giving TLC. I have been around dogs of all breeds, mixies, and sizes from tiny to jumbo. I have also done pet sitting over the years. I know that for the vast majority of people that their dog (s) are their family for some they are their kiddos too. I have taken Pet First Aid and also completed an Animal Welfare Assistant Program certification. I will take excellent care of your dog(s) while they are in my care. I will make sure he or she gets plenty of rubs and scratches.See Profile
Pets and caring for pets is my happy place! I very much enjoy my days that I am walking or caring for pets. I have experience with dog walking, in-home boarding, and home visits to care for your pet while you away. I also have the ability to do any long term boarding for military deployments as well as first responders schedules who may just need a pet visits mid day or while on duty. I am a trusted source and I am happy to provide a referral. I am currently a dog mom to a 13 yr old Maltese-who is my heart and world.See Profile
Hello!My name is Jess, and I moved to StL a little less than a year ago. I've been pet-sitting and -walking for around ten years. I started off caring for a dog, birds, and chinchillas for a family I knew. During undergrad, I walked and took care of a couple of my professor's dogs, including one whom I later adopted. I paid for grad school, in part by maintaining several repeat clients for sitting and walking. I especially love large breed dogs, but have happily cared for dogs ranging in size from a Maltipoo to a St. Bernard.If your dog is dog-friendly and in need of some socialization, I'm happy to bring my dog, Hilda, along for walks. I always try to take pictures,a let you know wh...See Profile
Hello fur-moms and fur-dads! I am an experienced animal caretaker of domestic and exotic animals. I currently work as a doggy daycare attendant and I worked at an animal sanctuary as a lead animal caretaker for over 20 different species of animals for over two years, as well as interned with exotic animals and volunteered at my local humane society prior to that. There are very few things I love more than taking care of animals and I would love to treat yours as good as my own (very, very spoiled). I enjoy long walks in the park and wouldn't mind giving your furry family members all the attention they deserve.See Profile

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.
