We pay our walkers more per walk than any other company. This has led to a much higher quality of care, and standard of service compared to similar companies in the industry.

Dog Walking Guru

Hi! My name is Kayla! I was inspired by the dogs I grew up with in my family to make it my life’s mission to be of service to all animals and make sure they are treated with upmost respect and love. I’m an experienced dog walker and caretaker. I’m very attentive, patient, and protective of the furry family. I’m from NYC but spent my college years in Ithaca, NY so I love the outdoors. I’m also a brand ambassador for Barkly and certified in First Aid & CPR for dogs and cats. In addition to walking dogs, I also bake healthy treats for them and take photos of them with my Fujifilm cameras. I would love to meet your pup, show them some love, and go on an adventure together!See Profile

Dog Walker in Union, NJ

I am a pet owner and have a passion for dogs. Wayback in the Philippines I had 13 dogs and happily took care for them. Among them is John- john a crossbreed labrador and great Dane which I am proud. I have trained him and he is like a brother to me. He knows a lot of tricks, obedience and potty trained. Most of all he is an expert swimmer and loves the sea. I used him to train my other dogs and it worked. I did not have a hard time because he can influence them and follow what he is doing. I learned that dogs communicate with each other and I am so happy to have him. I have been exposed to all kinds of dogs and I have the skill to make friends with them. While in the states I had a shi tzu...See Profile

Dog Walker in Union, NJ

I have the biggest heart for animals ! I adopted my dog 5 years ago from a shelter and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. We do everything together from walks to hikes to beach trips , weekend trips , and vacations. I believe i can provide love and care for your dog. Bonding with dogs comes naturally for me, the more pup friends the merrier ! I pick up quickly on common dog behaviors and have always felt comfortable in almost any situation with dogs. I feel I’m a good fit for taking care of dogs , very out going personality and tend to love all dogs like they are my own . I look forward to meeting you and your pups !See Profile

Common Questions

  • How can I book a walk in Union?

    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 Union?

    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!
