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

My name is Katherine and I started my own pet sitting and dog walking business 9 years ago, when I was 15.

Dog Walker in San Rafael, CA

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

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in San Rafael?

    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 Rafael?

    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!
