I love waking dogs, it is my passion! I love taking care of them and making sure they get their exercise. I can run, walk, hike, or even swim with them if that's what your furry friends enjoy! I will walk your doggos whenever you need me, rain, shine, cold, hot, early morning, and even late at night! I will also make sure they come home safe, and treat them like they are my own.See Profile
I’m an active dad of two, soon-to-be three little girls. Having been a pet owner myself, I understand the stress of finding someone trustworthy and reliable to care for your pet. As an avid animal lover, pet care has allowed me the freedom to pursue something I’m passionate about, while maintaining a flexible schedule for my girls. I’m a full service pet care provider with an extensive background in sitting, training, and walking. I pride myself in exceeding expectations by focusing on reliability, communication, safety, and of course love. I’ve been in the pet care business for several years and hope to have the pleasure of meeting you and your furbaby soon.See Profile
I have cared for dogs my whole life since before the age of five. I have a deep love for animals especially dogs. I have handled many different breeds and many different energy levels of dogs. From nursing newborn puppies to handling a 120 pound Rhodesian. Currently I’m just working part time and taking care of my dog. I would love more opportunities to make some extra cash on the side and I figured, since I love dogs so much why not help out other dog owners and make their dogs happy as well!See Profile
As a natural born animal lover, it only makes sense that I grew up with all types of pets. I am no stranger to any type as I’ve owned all from hamsters and ferrets to lizards, cats and dogs. They are family and should always be treated as such. I am comfortable with any size dog as one of my own is 75lbs. She will not be walked with yours as she is with my parents in Virginia. I am comfortable with all breeds including all bully breeds. I am a sucker for pitties! I have 4 years professional experience but have quite literally my entire lifetime of experience with all animals and caring for them. I look forward to meeting your fuzzy child and taking adventures together while you take care of...See Profile
I have been dog walking for about two years now. I will love your dog like its my own, the hardest part about dog walking for me is that I can't spend more time with the furry friends I meet. I also have experience with doggy daycare and check ins. I am comfortable using a variety of walking tools and I also bring training treats with me on my walks.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. 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!
