Colonial Village dog walkers in your neighborhood.
Hi, my name is Maggie and I am excited to be a Barkly Pets walker! I have experience walking all sorts of dogs from the extremely energetic to the very mellow and the super skittish. Growing up my favorite siblings were my family's golden retriever and a black lab. I am a Social Work graduate student at University of Maryland and dog walking is the best study break I could imagine! I can't wait to meet all my new doggie friends.See Profile
I am an avid animal lover. I have owned an Eskipoo for 2 years and absolutely love him! I also have some experience walking up to 5 dogs at the same time. As a walker, you can expect me to be punctual, professional, and thorough with my work. I will make sure to give your pet a quality time!See Profile
Hi there! I'm a student at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and majoring in Wildlife Conservation. 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

He's been doing the belly rub thing lately hah! I think his character is coming out a lil more now that he has a consistent home. Thanks for the details love them! So happy he had good manners.
Thanks! Sorry about the harness. He'll have a better one for next week's walks! He does like to bite the harness to play so that's not too surprising :) thanks for the pictures, too!
Hahahah!!! Yes he's such a dork he must put his entire face in the water to get the ice cube out. No worries at all - we learned this the hard way, too. Thanks for the heads up!
lol at his pic! Thanks for doing a bug check--he LOVES jumping into spider plants. and yes any of the kongs in the freezer are ok but thank you for asking!
No worries on the time, that is like the ideal time but not a showstopper time. I was just happy you took such good care of Maximus. Thank you very much!
yes he has a lot of energy!! I hope he wasn't too too much. and thank you so much for reading his profile! i'm glad y'all had a good walk :)

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!
