My friends call me LB! I grew up in West Virginia with a few mix breed dogs throughout my childhood. My dogs were, without a doubt, my first best friend. Not only were they my best friends but they motivated me to have my 2nd job which was walking dogs (delivering newspapers was my first!). I’ve been walking with Barkley here and there for a couple of years. As a result of covid-19 I have a lot more time on my hands and I’m looking to meet YOUR furry friend and take them for a walk.See Profile

Thanks Barkly due a great experience despite my phone being out of order. Stephanie was responsible enough to cancel when sick (much appreciated!). Asks sent in her place was lovely and understanding of my protectiveness of a new to me dog.
Thanks Albe for being so responsive to my requests and patient with me, a slightly overprotective new guardian to my guy Bogey. You were wonderful about my screwing up the time too!
Hi Lucy, thanks again! Please stay in touch for future dog walking whenever you'd like or are available again. Also, feel free to stop by anytime to say hi to Buttercup. Good luck!!
Santino has a lot of energy and can be squirming bc he’s always so excited.. Carly seems to understand him and he’s in a great mood when I get home after his time with her!
Thanks, she did the same to me this morning - and had an upset stomach on our walk. We're keeping an eye on her tonight and hopefully she'll be back to normal tomorrow.
Thanks Carly! Oogie can sometimes be skittish with people she may not recognize, but thank you for being patient. Looks like you had a lovely walk with her! :-)
LOL he likes the cool floor after his walks. You can drag him to get up or pull him up using the handle on the harness.
Thank you so much! I think the play pen is starting to help, and I’m sure she looks forward to you coming by as well
Thanks for being there for the little guy even in the face of snow and rough travel conditions! Extra thanks from us!
Not at all! Thanks. Th eres also a lamp on the table next to the couch you can turn on if it's too dark.
Stefanie takes great care of my fur babies, every time she walks them I know they are in great hands.
Wendy is extremely good when walking Yuki she asks the right questions and take good care of Yuki!
Gelila was great with Trix and kept me appraised during the walk. I would highly recommend her.
Thanks so much! She is not a fan of the harness but we're working on making her happier with it!
Thanks, Lucy! I love reading the walk report and seeing the great pictures of Buttercup!
Thank you! She's a little shy at first but usually relaxes the moment you step outside.
It’s ok to let him go in the dog park if you want, we take him there all the time!
Love the pictures! Great walk! Buttercup is one lucky dog, thank you Lucy!
So nice to be away and know your animal family member is being cared for.
Thank you for keeping in touch! Macchiato was so pleased to see you.

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.
