Dependable And Reliable

I love animals. I especially love dogs and spending the majority of my time with them. I was living with and caring for 5 dogs up until my husky passed away in July. We go on almost daily hikes in the Oakland hills, Fort Funston or other hiking areas and dog friendly areas around the Bay Area. I am highly reliable and dependable. I am also a responsible, hard worker.See Profile

San Francisco Dog Walking

The birthplace of hippie culture and present day home to the tech industry of Silicon Valley. In San Francisco, our walkers enjoy routes that feature iconic landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, and beautiful hilltops that overlook the ocean. The natural ecosystems of the city are extraordinary and vastly different from neighborhood to neighborhood ranging from grasslands to wetlands, and the dunes to the bay. Barkly walkers can be certain that there will be plenty of diverse landscape on their walks! The city has a plethora of dog-friendly areas for our Barkly customers to explore including beaches, woodlands, and parks.

Customer Reviews

My dog can be difficult, but it was great to see that Xoan knew how to handle him like a pro and had a great walk with my spastic Border Collie. We will be using Xoan again :)
