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

Customer Reviews

Thank you so much for taking such good care of him last week and today. And for bringing up the packages too! We really appreciate the great updates and knowing he has someone he clearly likes who takes good care of him too!

Erica M.

Christie, you’re a lifesaver! Thank you so much for taking care of and treating my sweet girl as if she’s your own! Honey loves you and I wouldn’t know what to do without you!

Cameron B.

Thank you for going back too. He will do that now and then and I usually go back and check on him and get him to go on his bed and lay down and tell him to “be good”.

Erica M.

Thanks, Nate! We have a crate on order that should be here by Wednesday. We're going to give that a shot and see if we can correct his rampant peeing lately.

Carrie B.

Thank you Esther for always taking such good care of the boys. We really appreciate your dedication to making sure they had a good time on their walks.

Justin B.

My cat loves Katie. It is really comforting to know that I have her there when I can't be. She tells me what happened, and her time with Ellie.

Martina R.

Amazing service, punctual and attentive. She makes me feel very secure and safe that my babies are in the right hands. Highly recommended.

Thanks for being an awesome walker! Tuck can be tough to deal with and it sounds like you got him to do more activity than usual!

Tuck is tough at first but he farther you can get him away from the building along the river walk, the more relaxed he gets.

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!
