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

I have been a professional dog walker and pet sitter for over 4 years, and am comfortable with all sizes and breeds. I have confidence working with strong dogs who pull, as well as dogs with leash aggression or other triggers or fears. When you book me as your dog walker, you can expect completely individualized care and prompt communication, and I always go the extra mile to make sure your furry family member is happy and healthy. Post-walk pets/cuddles and a fill of a water bowl are standard, and I always accept special requests. During each walk, I'll find a safe time and place to snap a photo to send you so you can see for yourself what a great time your pup is having. We don't deserve d...See Profile
The large, mature elm trees and the colorful pink, grey, and yellow row houses of Eckington, which also appear in the Netflix series “House of Cards, make this neighborhood a favorite location amongst our Barkly walkers. Check out the The Metropolitan Branch Trail, an eight-mile stretch that’s great for walking, running, or biking with your dog.
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...
Jillian - thanks so much for taking care of our girl on such short notice! We can't say it enough. Love the picture, and we appreciate you being so cautious of Pegs' lack of love for fireworks. Aaron & Carolyn
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
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 :)
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.
Thanks for the last minute availability! Fia is super happy to have her "dad" back home and her pack a complete unit again.
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 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.
Christine texted me additional pictures. She is the best walker that we have been assigned. I trust her a lot.
I meant to hit 5. Hanna's communication and walk report were great. Nothing to be improved. Fat fingers! :)
Thank you Dave!!!! You're the best, and Bailey certainly enjoyed seeing you and his best friend Atlas!
Bailey seems to especially love his walks with KB! Thanks for taking such good care of the monster.
Tanner is honestly the BEST!!! It is so amazing to have a walker that loves my dog as much as I do.
Thanks so much!! He's great with other dogs - sometimes gets a bit jumpy! I appreciate the walk!!!
Sarah walked at a good clip which is important for my dog! She also provided a detailed report.
Love Natalie! She is a great Walker! We appreciate her communication and patience with anabelle

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!
