Customer Reviews

Sarah was fantastic because she went above & beyond what was asked if her. I realized I forgot to turn my crockpot on & she was kind enough to save my dinner by turning it on for me. And I know Scarlwt loved her walk based on the route!

Courtney F.

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.

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.

Thanks for letting us know about the leash. It happened for the first time last night, but we thought it was a fluke cause she was playing with another dog.

Courtney F.

Thanks so much Morgan! I'm always excited when you take Nora out. She was so content when I got home yesterday; it made a huge difference in my day!

Helen B.

Thanks Morgan! I'm so glad Nora got to go out and enjoy the scenery. I miss her on these long days, but I'm happy to know she's getting some love!

Helen 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.

Thanks Nate! He's still going #2 every morning and every evening so I'm not too concerned. He's likely just going through a rebellious phase ;)

Lynsey G.

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

Nuvee N.

Reda is the best walker we've had through Barkly!!! Highly recommend her and hope she wants to walk our pup again soon!!! A++++++++++!

Cartney M.

Thanks Danielle! I know Nora was excited to see you after I was unexpectedly out all day. Thanks for taking her out for a nice walk!

Helen B.

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!

Lauren B.

Thanks so much for walking Nora! I know she loves having a break during the day and it's such a relief to know she's having fun.

Helen B.

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.

Lauren B.

Clarice has been awesome!! Whenever I have Athena here again she will be the first person I notify!! Thanks for everything!

Damon B.

Thanks for being so adventurous with Tuck! It's paying off and he's really starting to come out of his shell!

Lauren B.

Thank you so much Morgan! As always, both Honey and I appreciate you taking care of her while I'm away!

Cameron B.

Yay, that's perfect! She looks so, SO happy! Thank you so much you've been an absolute lifesaver today

Cameron B.
