Dog Walker in Santa Barbara, CA

Hello! Pleasure to meet you! My name is Tawnya, and I am an avid dog lover! My experience in dog walking has been for friends and family, and has consisted of small to medium + dogs. I walk primarily in the lower West side and on the Mesa, in Santa Barbara. Dog parents can expect me to give their little fuzzy loves lots of fun, playful affection, and mindful, loving care. I'm timely, like to give attention to detail, and eager to get to know your pup! Thank you!See Profile

Dog Walker in Santa Barbara, CA

I miss having pets around! College has taken me to many places, though I miss the company of furry friends. I would love to take care of your pets and fill that desire to be around animals. I’ve had dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles my whole life and have experience taking care of special needs pets. I am new to the Goleta area, but I would love the opportunity to experience it with your furry friends!See Profile

Dog Walker in Santa Barbara, CA

Hey !My name is Lara and I am 18 years old and I recently moved to Santa Barbara from Germany. I grew up with 3 dogs and 2 horses so I am really experienced in the handling of animals . Additionally I worked at a vet for 3 months. I am also experienced in working with dogs with anxiety or aggression problems because 2 of my dogs whom we adopted came to us with those kind of difficulty’s. Since I weren’t able to take my dogs with me I really miss being with animals and would feel really honored and happy if I could support you and play/walk or whatever with your dog ! :) I live in Santa Barbara uptown. Looking forward to hear from you !LaraSee Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Santa Barbara?

    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 Santa Barbara?

    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!
