Hi, my name is Maggie and I am excited to be a Barkly Pets walker! I have experience walking all sorts of dogs from the extremely energetic to the very mellow and the super skittish. Growing up my favorite siblings were my family's golden retriever and a black lab. I am a Social Work graduate student at University of Maryland and dog walking is the best study break I could imagine! I can't wait to meet all my new doggie friends.See Profile
Hi there! My name is Nick, and I'm from Princeton, New Jersey! I am here in Washington D.C. finishing up school and working at an NGO trying to combat modern slavery. In my free time, I love to go for walks around the city with my pup, or hang out inside with my cat. If you are anything like me, your pet is your life. I will make sure to treat your pet with respect and dignity he or she deserves. I strive to make sure your pet's needs are met efficiently, and responsibly.See Profile

In fact I am a mother of two (Jes a Maltese Terrier who is older and Lexy a Labrador puppy who has just began her wonderful life). I have been dog sitting, walking, and grooming for years (5 approximately) it started out as watching dogs in the proximity of their owners then being paid to walk them, babysit them for weeks, or groom them. I have first aid experience with dogs just Incase your dog might need any assistance and I am prepped to work alongside any accommodations your dog might need such as frequent water breaks or decreased movement...See Profile
Hello, My name is Anaba Wachuku. Currently, I am an EMR consultant, but attending the Onsite Full stack Boot Camp at Coding Dojo. I've grown up with and around dogs my whole life, and have had a natural affinity for animals. I don't recall a time when I haven't had a dog or ferret(s), or fish in my house. My two boys are Simba a big headed Rottweiler, and Bandit a cuddly fluff of Pomeranian banditry (white). A couple of years ago, I trained Simba for a dog show competition doing protection and obedience training. Simba and I went on to win first place in the obedience category, and a couple other awards also for the fashion show category. Bandit loves to go on walks and claim his territory...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.
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!!
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!
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.
Thanks for being there for the little guy even in the face of snow and rough travel conditions! Extra thanks from us!
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
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.
