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

Hey there, my name is Raphael, and I have been a dog owner/walker for about 13 years now, and a cat owner for about 4.

Thanks for the walk. And thanks for waiting. I will make a note about the front door. It is not easy to close. Please be careful and only use the bottom lock. Make sure the door is properly closed and do not slam it.
Thanks for taking her thru the woods! She pulls us over there in the evenings to show us where she’s been every day. She loves when you take her to the park!
Love the photo! Thanks for being so great with Lela. Also so glad to hear your cat is on the mend. I hope the healing is a speedy process. 💛
Thanks for your generosity and persistence to keep looking for the right apartment and for spending such quality time with her!
Thanks - good to know he’s excited to see you. Hopefully one day he’ll be excited about the walks - he needs them! Ha
hope he didn’t give you too much trouble after you put his coat on. He’s really stubborn and doesn’t like wearing it
Great photo! Thank you for taking care of him - he’s sluggish because he hates the cold. He does the same to me!
Haha! Don’t worry he does that to me too sometimes. Thanks for dealing with his attitude :)

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.

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!
