Dog Walker in Takoma Park, MD

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

Dog Walker in Takoma Park, MD

Hello , My name is Gregory Roberson, I'm originally from Southern Florida. I'm 27 years old and I have been breeding, walking and caring for many different breeds of dogs mine and others as well since I was 7 years old. I have mostly worked with working breed dogs such as Cane Corso, American Bulldog, Dogo Argentinos, American Pit Bull Terriers, and American Bandogge just to name a few! Currently, I walk dogs in the Southern Maryland and DC area mostly for friends and family and also do basic level training as well. You can expect a dog walker that will treat your animal as if it were my very own! Your pup will feel my love and passion and may even love me more than you :)See Profile

Takoma Park Dog Walking

Nicknamed Azalea City in homage to the famous azalea hybrids that are found throughout the city streets. The area is nationally recognized for its urban and community forestry conservation efforts which help protect its extensive tree canopy, a favorite feature for local walkers. Situated on the Mid-Atlantic fall line, Takoma Park is known for being quite hilly, but our Barkly walkers are happy to take on the uphill battles so you don’t have to!

Customer Reviews

Just reading this now - it's seeming like she doesn't want to walk far on her morning and afternoon walk, but wants to go a lot further in her evening walk. I always appreciate the feedback!

Lisa B.

She was like that today too...just not wanting to go too far. And that't totally fine. Yes, I know the phrase! Thanks for the feedback, as always...she's a funny, quirky dog sometime.

Lisa B.

I know Snicks will miss you terribly! That's why she was crying yesterday - when I haven't seen her for awhile, she cries because she's happy to see me. Have a wonderful trip!!!

Lisa B.

Thanks for the detailed report on Snicks! - I just took her for a bit, and that was exactly my experience too. Something about the kind of lighting makes a big difference!

Lisa B.

I was away all weekend, so just seeing this now. She's a funny dog. I really think the weather plays a major role in her energy. Thanks for being so good with her.

Lisa B.

i wonder she struggles with the getting in and out of the house part. But happy to hear she did well even with the overcast skies! You are a blessing to us, Gail

Lisa B.

I think her hips are sore and she's been on benedryl for itchiness. We're going in for laser treatment this week to help with pain. Thanks for your feedback!!

Lisa B.

I so appreciate all the information and videos. I review them all thoroughly!! It really looks like she was tracking the treats you were holding out for her.

Lisa B.

Thanks for the thorough feedback on the walk! And the great care you're taking to keep her safe :-) I'd be happy to have you walk Snickers in the future!

Lisa B.

That's very helpful information - I'll share that with the vet. The quality of her sight seems very situational. Glad you had a good walk! yay!

Lisa B.

Thank you so much for the detailed information about Snicks - I am always so anxious to hear how its going. Its sounds like encouraging news!!

Lisa B.

Thanks for the detail - she is obsessed with food, which we are addressing with the vet. Hopefully, she'll be less food driven soon.

Lisa B.

Great selfie!! She's so cute. As always thanks for the detailed notes - I really appreciate knowing what's going on with snicks.

Lisa B.

Great to have you back, Gail! I'm sure Snicks was happy to see you! She is doing very well - fully recovered from surgery.

Lisa B.

I love all the details! She loves that trail, and hates going back. I use the "handle" a lot to move her along. Thank you!

Lisa B.

I love this picture! Thank you for the detailed information on Snickers. I look forward to reading the report everyday!

Lisa B.

Glad to know you're spending quality time with her when you have shorter walks! I'm sure she'll love the mani and pedi :)

Lisa B.

yay! finally done the road work! btw, your leash for snickers is here - which is fine! But wanted to let you know.

Lisa B.

Thanks Wendy - by the way, I think your daughter left her mittens here. Feel free to stop by and get them anytime.

Lisa B.

That's so great that you got out more today! I thought she would go right back in. Thanks for washing her paws :-)

  • 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.

  • 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.
