We pay our walkers more per walk than any other company. This has led to a much higher quality of care, and standard of service compared to similar companies in the industry.

Experienced And Reliable Dog Walker

Let's be honest. We don't always have the time in the day to care for our furry best friends and it's sometimes devastating to think they're stuck in a cage, or just home all alone for x amount of hours. If this applies to you and how you feel, look no further. I will treat your BFF as if they are my own little furball and provide them with one of the best mornings/afternoons/days of their little lives!See Profile

Dog Walker in San Marcos, CA

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

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in San Marcos?

    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 San Marcos?

    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!
