Dog Walker in Washington, DC

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

Dog Walker in Washington, DC

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.

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!
