For as long as I can remember, I was holding a leash and dreaming about the day I was old enough to train dogs of my own. My fascination with dogs started at just 2 years old with my dad's police K9, a Rottweiler named Shadow. I was just in awe at the amazing things Shadow could do, and above all else he saved my dad's life more than once! I have spent 10 years working as a veterinary technician with both small animals and primates. I have also spent the last 15 years training dogs, which is my true passion. I treat every animal I work with like it is one of my own!See Profile
My name is Emily Craycroft and I have been working with animals for almost 3 years. I am currently a veterinary assistant striving to increase my knowledge in veterinary medicine. The top spot I enjoy walking is Twin Trestle Trailhead in Shelby, NC. It’s a relaxing none strenuous, easy trail. I enjoy the interaction with dogs and getting to know their personalities so, I look forward to walking!See Profile
The most popular breed in Shelby is the Boxer. This city has more dog walks with Boxers than any other breed.
How can I book a walk in Shelby?
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 Shelby?
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!
