Customer Reviews

Gina is a champ. Our alarm system went off while she was exiting our house, and instead of just leaving, she stuck around to troubleshoot with us via text so the police didn't show up to a false alarm. On top of that, our dog gave her a sweet welcome...

Packy & Rachael G.

Thank you for the updates on his #2s! We're trying to get healthy again. Can you let us know if/when you fill his water bowl? That helps us keep track of how much he's drinking each day. Thanks so much!

Packy & Rachael G.

Thanks, London! When you come back, Duncan will remember you and greet you with big tail wags! He’s only shy the first time he meets someone new. Thanks again!

Packy & Rachael G.

Thanks so much! Duncan loves his walks with you! Have you happened to notice if his water bowl is lower than usual now that it’s summer and hotter outside?

Packy & Rachael G.

Thanks Derrick! Great photo today! He has a good number of pit bull friends but some of the others in our neighborhood have put off a less friendly vibe.

Packy & Rachael G.

Thanks for being patient with Duncan while he was slow to get off the couch! He is exhausted from camping and hiking all Labor Day Weekend!

Packy & Rachael G.

Duncan’s best walkies ever with his friend, Atlas! Thank you for making his day! He hasn’t stopped talking about it since I got home.

Thank you for taking such good care of our boy! And for sitting with him and keeping him company when he wanted a shorter walk!

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!
