Why Barkley Square?
Barkley Square has a long tradition of providing pet owners in the Washington, DC metropolitan region with in-home professional pet sitting and professional pet grooming at our Falls Church, VA facility. Kristina Robertson founded Barkley Square in 1991 under its original name, Karing by Kristina. Over the years, she has built the business and expanded into professional pet grooming with a focus on the pet's well-being and client satisfaction.
I have had an overall great experience with Barkley Square's home pet sitting service. They have been very accommodating and flexible with last minute scheduling or cancellations and their online booking system is very convenient. They also do an online pet journal which is nice and will do extra things such as water the plants and bring in the newspaper.
They were great. I had Christine come and walk my dog my dog while I was on vacation and my dog was staying with my father. I wanted my dog to get two long walks a day which I thought might be too much for my dad. This worked out amazingly well. Christine was terrific, my dog liked her and the journals were a great comfort that I could keep up with my dogs care while out of town.
I have been using their service for 9 years. The gal that walks my dog has been coming all that time and never missed a day! Every time I have called, even if it is last minute, they have always been accommodating in finding someone to take care of my dog for me. They are always very responsive to requests for weekends or extra walks if I need to go out of town.
