Dog Walker in Seattle, WA

Hi my name is Amanda and I have a dog named Bear whom I rescued 2 years ago. Growing up I have always had a dog as I believe they provide great companionship. I can often be found outdoors running, hiking, or skiing. I also love to camp! I love working with dogs and training them. My dog Bear knows about 20 commands that I have personally taught him myself. If you prefer to not have my dog here, when your dog is here, I can always bring Bear to my sisters house who lives close by.See Profile

Dog Walker in Seattle, WA

I live in Ravenna, Seattle. I have been a dog owner and sitter basically all my life, but within the last few years made money doing it. Most of the dogs I board and care for are rescues, so I understand the needs of different dogs and their personalities. I will get to know the dog’s needs to become their friend and caretaker. I give dogs walks based on activity level, feed them, give them medication as needed, and most importantly, I will play with them. Exercise, mental stimulation, and basic training are important to me. I have flexible availability and my own car.See Profile

Experienced Animal Lover In West Seattle

I’ve worked providing professional animal care in Boston and Los Angeles since 2016. I moved to Seattle almost a year ago. Currently, I have a 2 year old spayed female mutt who is very social and sweet, I’ve been taking her on my walks if the fit seems right. It’s amazing what dogs can learn from each other. I've volunteered at my local animal shelter, and at a German Shepherd training/breeding facility. I understand dog behavior and all the different personalities animals have. I'm knowledgeable about Red Cross pet first aid and have experience administering medication and dealing with older dogs with special needs. I take pride in sharing a bond with animals and providing detailed updates...See Profile

Dog Walker in Seattle, WA

Hi! My name's Kenah, and my boyfriend and I have a beautiful, loving, american staffordshire terrier named Rocky. He's two years old and we have so much fun playing with him, and teaching him new things. I've been around, and caring for dogs of my own, as well as others dogs, for a total of ten years. I love hiking, reading, going out to eat, learning something new, caring for others and being in their company, as well as animals. Preschooler's are my spirit animal, but how I carry myself in my personal and work life is more so that of an Elementary school teacher. I moved to Washington state in September of 2019, not knowing anyone with animals to care for, play with, or walk, which made m...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.
