It’s no secret that dogs are an important part of life at URBN. And with about 300 dogs on campus, we’re always thinking about how we can help make life easier for our furry friends and their owners. Now, URBN employees with dogs have a convenient way to make sure their dogs are well cared for when they have a hectic day at work because URBN is partnering with Barkly, a dog walking service and smartphone app.
“We couldn’t have chosen a better partner for our first corporate partnership than URBN. Given their entrepreneurial culture and a dog-friendly workplace, URBN is an ideal partner for Barkly and a natural extension of our focus on delivering high-quality care, anytime. We founded Barkly as three working professionals who constantly made social and professional sacrifices to care for our beloved pets. We’ve built a professional community of pet lovers, and couldn’t be more excited to introduce them to the URBN employee community, said Chris Gonzalez, Co-Founder and CEO of Barkly. Employees get their first walk free and after that they will get 5% off future walks. Users simply visit the Barkly app on iOS, Android or online to schedule walks in advance or within an hour’s notice. You can even use the service when your dog stays at home or even in other cities Barkly is currently available: Baltimore, New York City and Washington D.C.
