Hello my name is kelly! I am new to Barkley but certainly not new to walking. I volunteer at an animal shelter on the weekends as well and would love the opportunity to give your pups a nice long walk when you’re just too busy to do so :)See Profile
I have been around animals my entire life. From dogs, cats, horses and even owned rats! I absolutely love dogs and recently have been dog sitting for a friend who owns a Puggle. I have owned the following breeds:German ShepherdChihuahua PitbullDobermanBoxerHuskySee Profile
Lots of Love to GiveMy personal goal is to provide the best dog sitting experience for you (the owner) and your dog. I know how stressful it can be sometimes for both the owner and the animal. My dog is like my children, and i don't just trust anyone to watch them, and always want to make sure they the person is the best fit, so i understand if you have questions or concerns. I am here to ensure that your dog feels safe and loved while you rest assured that he/she is being well cared for. I have a passion for animals in general but dogs are my absolute favorite. Your dog will be treated, by me and my family, as if he was our own.See Profile
The most popular breed in Somerville is the Chihuahua. This city has more dog walks with Chihuahuas than any other breed.
How can I book a walk in Somerville?
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 Somerville?
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!
