Hey there!!! I am local to the glenmont /Silver spring and Bethesda-Chevy Chase area but work in dc, so I'm all over town! I've handled dogs and cats big and small, old and young, for both walking and overnight care. absolutely love spending time with our four legged friends (and hope the feeling is mutual!)Most walks I take are between the palisades, Tenleytown, downtown Bethesda, silver spring, and Takoma Park (but anywhere in between is fair game!)Can’t wait to meet your best friend!See Profile
My name is Ebony, I've loved animals all my life and I currently have two fur babies which are a cat named Dakota and a dog whose name is Raine! In my spare time I enjoy working out at the gym and getting fit. Moreover, I enjoy having the opportunity to interact with other families and seeing the love they have for their pets. Please know that I will treat your animals as if they were my own pets!See Profile
Hello my name is Luis. I have great experience with all sorts of dogs. I personally care for a Belgian Malinios, energetic dogs are my specialty! I look forward to meeting your furry friend.See Profile
Hi! My name is Heather and I am a 27 year old woman that has been working as a Professional Pet Care Provider for 5 years now. I grew up on a farm in Powhatan, Va with all kinds of animals but most importantly I grew up with 7 dogs (big & small). I love all dogs & cats and am very confident around them. I treat all animals as if they are my own and I will go out of my way to make sure you and your pets feel safe and happy in my care :) I’m trustworthy and can accommodate whatever your needs are for your dog’s walk ! I am very reliable and I have a very flexible schedule. This is not only a job to me as it is something that I love and am very passionate about! I hope to meet you and your pets...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!!
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! :-)
Your photos are great, and lovely to have. I usually have my hands full when we're outside, so I don't have many photos of my own. Thank you!
Thanks so much, Marika! Buttercup IS so funny about her chicken toy!! So sorry about he 6am walk...don’t wise we’re already up :).
Thanks for being there for the little guy even in the face of snow and rough travel conditions! Extra thanks from us!
Thanks, Lucy! Sounds like a great walk! Buttercup has really been into sniffing everything lately!
Thanks so much! She is not a fan of the harness but we're working on making her happier with it!
Thanks! Buttercup totally looks like she is smiling! Have a good rest of your week, Lucy!
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.
Thank you so much, Lucy! Glad you got Tonka to go too! Have a great Holiday season!
Th t's really good! How did you do that?!Thanks for the dog walks this week!
Sounds like a great week with Buttercup, Thanks, Lucy! Have a good weekend!
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.
I think Buttercup is talking to you in the photo! Thank you for the walk!
Thanks for making the time for an introductory walk when I was home!

How can I book a walk in Silver Spring?
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 Silver Spring?
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!
