I've always had a passion for the welfare of all animals, and I want to ensure that your family member gets the best care possible. Some previous experience of mine is that I've had 5 dogs of my own throughout my life, and have volunteered at adoption events for both cats and dogs.Let's get to know each other, and I promise I don't bite!If you are satisfied and happy with my care, feel free to let others know and to use my code: walk0385mic (gets you $50 in credit for walks!)See Profile

The entire neighborhood of Bloomingdale is designated as a historic district. A major bonus for our Barkly customers is the community-managed and community-owned greenspace, Crispus Attucks Park. Over an acre of garden oasis, this community gem is a great place to walk your dog and enjoy an afternoon outside. There is also McMillan Park which is an old Sand filtration site with large open spaces and abandoned cement cylinders now covered in vines. Barkly walkers will find an abundance of nature and fresh air on all their walks in Bloomingdale.
Christine is the best dog walker. She texted me right away to ask when I wanted her to come, stayed in touch with me via text, fed the dogs treats, dried them, and sent me additional pictures via text. She has been a pleasure and I'm always glad when...
Breanne is super attentive to Lola and consistently tries to make each walk uniquely exciting for our dog. She also, today and other days, does a great job of looking after our dog's play area at home to make sure it stays clean and safe. We thorough...
Thanks, Laurie - I'm glad you got to meet Remy. She had a blast on today's walk with you. I appreciate the excellent communication and timeliness! I'd love for you to walk Remy again some time soon. Thanks again!
Sarah has been great at being patient with Berlin, especially during her more willful and resistant moments. She works hard to get the most out of their time and is very gentle and considerate when doing so
Thanks for the update on her coughing. She has been sick for a few weeks now. We are going to a new yet Monday to get a second opinion so any updates would be great
Sorry we forgot to leave the clicker in the usual spot, thank you for altering the route enough to get a full walk and both #1/2 out of Berlin, despite the cold :)
Thanks for walking Harley. Please do give her fresh water and food each time, even if she has water and food. That way I know she gets fed two scoops in the day.
Thank you Katie for taking such great care of Harley- we will miss you but hope to see you around and say hello! Best of luck to you with the new job.
Sarah did so much to make Pau feel happy today given that he's adjusting to still learning to be alone at home. She really went the extra mile.
Thanks for putting up with our stubborn dog and making him get his Burt outside for a walk! Above and beyond and much appreciated!!!
Fernanda was great at communicating when she planned to be at our apartment, and when she ended up running late, letting us know.
You find the prettiest flowers to pose her with! Thanks for all the great walks this week. Glad it wasn't raining this afternoon.
Mikaela is amazing- Nanook took to her quickly and she was super sweet and patient with my skittish little pup. Thank you!!!!
Thank you for letting me know about the walk, I'll add some notes about the things that might make Orli nervous on walks.
Thanks Alex! We really appreciate the walk you gave Remy today. She's so much fun and we're glad you got to see her!!!
Sorry Clark, meant to contact you about it. She is a little under the weather but I'm sure she was happy to see you.
Thanks! Great reports. She only needs the booties if there is salt out - I appreciate you using them when needed.
Thanks for keeping him moving!! He really needs the exercise and you always keep him walking! Much appreciated.
Great job! Texted me to let me know they were on the way, followed instructions, and refilled the water bowls.
Thanks Isabelle. We appreciate the notes and photo! Glad everything went well. Much appreciated for all you do!

How can I book a walk in Washington DC?
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 Washington DC?
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!
