People Magazine: “Just because you’re unable to get home to your dog during the middle of the day, doesn’t mean he or she should stay home like a couch potato. The new Barkly app takes dog-walking a step further by inviting owners to access a network of insured, background-checked and highly trained pet professionals.”

My walker is good but the customer service from this company is NOT good. They do not respond to emails or calls. Also, the feature that shows you the walker's walking route has been broken forever. The website is also more user friendly then the app. Payment method on the app does not sync with website which is a pain. So in a nutshell, this app is BAD and there is NO customer service. I recommend you look for another dog walking company that doesn't have all these issues.

FORCES you to create an account BEFORE you even enter the app! I don't give my information out until I decide I WANT to! Have read good reviews and like that the walkers aren't charged a commission, but the inability to explore the website before deciding I want to be a customer (or Walker) is absolutely ludicrous. I'm surprised the company is still in business!

Dog Walkers are great, the app is broken. I currently did not need a walker but I get text messages everyday from people saying I'm requesting a walker.
