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
Hi there, I’m Dylan a 26 year old local born and raised here in the East Bay Area. I’m hardworking, punctual, optimistic and a warm hearted animal lover and dog owner myself. 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. He loves our daily walks and I know your pooch will too :) I look forward to getting to know you and your furry friend.See Profile
Hi, I love all animals but especially dogs and cats. I've had my own energy-filled jack russell terrier and a playful Bombay cat. I am also a physical therapist and am always advocating for people to get out and walk more. That expectation extends to animals as well; I expect all dogs and cats to get ample exercise to stay physically and mentally healthy. I walk dogs for family members and am the go-to person in my family to care for their furry family members when they're out of town. I walk dogs in the San Mateo region and will make sure your furry friends are well taken care of.See Profile
I have worked professionally with dogs since 2005. I have experience in Basic Obedience as well as a certificate for Animal Behavior Consulting. I've worked mostly in off-leash dog daycare environments but I have also pet-sit for private clients for many years. I am happy to walk dogs of all breeds and sizes. I use beef liver and freeze-dried chicken breast as treats, so please let me know if your dog has dietary restrictions or allergies.I am positive you will see my passion and love for animals when I care for your pets. I love staying active and I love an opportunity to bond with animals and help their owners. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to make your pet extra comfor...See Profile
Not just a walker, not just a sitter—a dog advocate! I truly believe that our canine companions deserve experiences that fully enrich their lives. Respect for, and attention to, each aspect of a dog’s being and complex life is my number one rule to the achievement of total canine enrichment. A simple dog walk fulfills only one part among several complex attributes that make our companions truly happy—and that allow for them to shine! Exercise is important; however, I pay close attention to areas that address intelligence, problem solving, and learning, communication, and socialization. Don’t skimp on your dog’s walking or sitting experience. Get the works! I look forward to interacting w...See Profile
How can I book a walk in San Mateo?
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 Mateo?
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!
