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

Customer Reviews

Thanks, Maggie! P.S. he probably tugs you that way because it's the direction of his favorite dog park. It's a good walk, too, but if you ever want to switch things up heading the other way on Porter (into our neighborhood) is also a really nice wal...

Gordon S.

Thanks for all your work with the dogs. Barkly let us know you would not be able to walk them anymore. Maria and I are sorry to see you go. Good luck with everything. Happy holidays!

Scott S.

Great! Terrific communication before the walk to coordinate so we could meet, since it was my first time using Barkly and also since Atticus is a new dog. Thanks so much.

Gordon S.

Harper did great today. She was faced with a lot of challenges and she rose and met all of them. I really appreciate her diligence and thoughtfulness.

Jodi S.

Terrific communication and went above and beyond to help get the walk scheduled after we met. Highly recommend this walker. Thanks, Lauren!

Gordon S.

Thanks, Ryan. I'm sure Atticus loved the really long walk. That's a beautiful trail but definitely a little long haha.

Gordon S.

Thanks, Daniel. She puked a little this morning, which is what is in her crate. She pees very sporadically!

Thanks, Ryan. Especially for prompt communication about Atticus being a little sick - really appreciated.

Thanks very much, Daniel! Really appreciate you being mindful of the heat and then playing with him.

Thanks so much, Lauren! Really appreciate all the communication - sorry I missed your initial text.

Thanks! Really appreciate the attentiveness to his paw, too - thanks for helping us monitor that.

Thanks very much, Daniel! Appreciate you applying the spray to his paw, too.

You put her harness on upside down, but I'm sure she didn't much mind. :)

I don't know how she does it, but she takes great photos of the dogs.

Common Questions

  • 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!
