A Barkly walker in the SW, Navy Yard and nearby neighborhoods since fall 2016. Great at getting shy dogs to warm up. Best with dogs over a year old. I love being part of you and your dog's days!

Dog Walker in Washington, DC

I'm currently a student studying psychology. I've been pet sitting for friends and neighbors since high school and am still waiting for the day when I can get a furry friend of my very own. Over the years, I've come to understand that the most important thing when it comes to interacting with animals really just is patience. Nice long belly rubs don't hurt though :)

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...

We LOVE having Derrick walk Higgins!!! He has mastered our front door keypad and we never have to worry about when he is coming. He is always on time and consistently picks up our walks. Higgins loves him too and always gets in a good bit of exercis...

Adrienne S.

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.

Packy & Rachael G.

I appreciate you working on his leash pulling!!! This is a recent development and I need to do some research to help teach him too!

Adrienne S.

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!

Packy & Rachael G.

Thanks for keeping such a close eye on Higgins while he is sick and coming at the beginning of the window! You're the best!

Adrienne S.

Thank you for walking Duncan on a nice long route! He needs to get all that energy out during the day! We appreciate you!

Packy & Rachael G.

Thanks for watching him so closely! I promise we feed him!! Haha apparently chicken bones are just too good to pass up!
