Pros: I’m not sure why there are so many negative reviews about support. Anytime I’ve needed help they’ve always been right there for me and are very prompt and professional with their responses. The pay is fantastic and it helps me get in some much needed exercise that I wouldn’t otherwise do. Most of the dogs are very friendly and it doesn’t actually feel like a job. I love animals and Barkly gives me the opportunity to be around them without worrying about affording a pet of my own.
Cons: It’s been a challenge getting walks. I’ve been told that starting out can be rough but I’ve been working since the end of April and have done maybe 5 walks. Very sporadic. I work in Philadelphia and have a lot of friends in South Jersey that would love for me to walk their dogs but I can’t because South Jersey isn’t supported. Since it’s right across the bridge and practically connected to Philly I think support for this area is definitely important. Also, some of the dogs can be mean at first but Barkly can’t be held responsible for that because each dog is different. You just need to be careful and listen to the dog’s body language.
