We’ve been using Bare Paws for about 2 years for cat sitting when we are away from home. Arlene and Violet and the team are so great. We always love getting pictures and messages about how the cat is doing while we are away. More...

I cannot say enough good things about Violet and Samantha from Bare Paws. I have a 14 year old cat who is basically like a dog as far as how much attention she demands ; ) and I was always afraid to leave her until I came across Violet. They are dependable, reliable, and keep my cat happy and me worry-free. I love the daily updates and pictures! I can tell from the faces that my cat makes that she is comfortable and well cared for. They are very reasonably priced especially for the peace of mind! Thank you Violet and Bare Pa More...

I originally found bare paws on Groupon and decided to give them a try. I've been using them for 6 months now and am very pleased with the service. While there have been a few minor slip ups, I feel that Devon takes excellent care of my dog while I'm at work. They are extremely reliable (not once did they miss a day), reasonably priced, and responsible. Recently I had a neighbor tell me how great Devon is with my dog during their walks. It's hard to find a trustworthy and reliable dog walker in the city, so this was nice to hear. Highly recommend. More...

I was looking for a affordable walker without sacrificing good care for my pup. Violet was kind, informative and supportive in getting my needs met. My dog loves Raymond and Charmaine both trusting and caring dog professionals. Thank you Bare Paws! More...

Violet and her team provide excellent service! Violet provided us with a very thorough first meet and greet before coming to walk our dogs officially and took the time to understand their individual personalities. She is very caring towards our dogs and respectful to our home. She always leaves the sweetest messages letting us know how their walks/visits went! Rates are competitive and worth every penny!

Great service!! Arlene is very reliable and professional. They have an awesome app to work all services through including booking visits, tracking your sitter, messaging and pictures, and invoicing and payment. Couldn't be easier!

Violet provides great professional and prompt service. Very reliable and responsive under any conditions. Zena is my regular cat sitter and both Audrey my cat and I love her. I highly recommend Bare Paws!

We are so grateful for Bare Paws NYC and Violet Blyden's awesome work! Violet and Samantha are the excellent and caring dog walkers who look after our pups, and on days when one of them is here, the dogs are so happy and calm. We signed on with Bare Paws when we were new to the city, and Violet and Samantha have helped the pups love New York and our neighborhood. You should give them a call - your dogs will thank you. Thank you, Violet and Samantha! More...

Eloise is well cared for every day. The staff are responsible and friendly. I would recommend this service to anyone who needs dog walking.

I was really worried about moving my big, southern, country pup up to NYC but he is loving the big city! This is largely due to the care and attention that he gets from Violet and from his walkers Davon and Chermaine. Darcy loves you all (especially Davon - he's obsessed with him ). Over the past year, I've gotten so comfortable with this service because I know that he will be well taken care of and spoiled  thank you for coming into our lives and for your patience and flexibility with my schedule. Keep up the great work! More...

Bare Paws has always been excellent. Violet is quick to respond to requests and questions and the sitters have been perfect with our cat. We sincerely appreciate the wonderful check-ins from Davon, Nickesha and Amanda on a daily basis when we're away. They always send lots of photos and let us know everything about their visit. Everyone with Bare Paws is incredibly considerate and I can't recommend their service enough. More...

Violet has been amazing! She takes care of my cat and my dog as if they were her own! My dog's health has improved because of how observant and vigilant she is. So thankful!

We have two kittens that we love dearly. It was very umportant that we have someone trustworthy to look after them when we were away. This service has been absolutely great. Our sitter, FATIMAH, was outstanding. Responsible, good with the critters, and sent us nice updates every day with pics that helped us miss our furry friends just a little less. Cannot recommend highly enough. More...

Bare Paws was great! I needed a sitter for my 2 year old cat for a weekend. Within 24 hours of contacting them, everything was set up and my meet and greet with my sitter was scheduled. Jameel was awesome, and made sure that Paprika had everything she needed. Highly recommend! More...

I live in Michigan. I've received 2 spam calls from this company yesterday and four calls this morning. No response when I pick up the phone and my phone even lists it as a scam when the call comes through. I'm sure they are legitimate due to the reviews here but not sure why they are cold calling me non stop with no one on the other line....


Due to prompt response I'll give four stars. Hope you guys fix the phone system.

Best,
Ct

We've had a very positive experience with Bare Paws. Violet was incredibly helpful in bringing us on as new clients and we can't say enough about the job that Jameel is doing with our dog during their daily walks. He is exceptionally communicative and accommodating of any small requests we ask of him. More...

Nothing but good experiences with Bare Paws. I have a cat, but regularly travel for work etc. Even when I forget to request appointments until the last minute, Bare Paws has been efficient in scheduling and has never been unable to accommodate me. They are also great about coming at particular times when it is easiest to get into my apartment building. My regular sitter, Fatimah, was very friendly when I met her when she came over to see where everything was before the first appointment. She has always been responsive to any changes I request (e.g. changes to what the cat is eating), and the place always looks pretty tidy when I come back (even though my cat is prone to making a mess!). She also always sends me nice notes and photos while I'm away - and the cat, who can be a bit of a grouch, is often cuddling with her in the photos :) Great service, and very affordable. More...

I have been using Bare Paws at least half a month for the past few months since I moved to NYC. Violet immediately made me feel comfortable leaving my older cat and hedgehog in her care. She leaves fantastically detailed observations and my pets are in great  shape with her every other day visits. I travel often and long for work so finding her has been a blessing. Violet and her Bare Paws team has made a very difficult challenge much easier and in as much as I hate being away from my babies, I am happy we have someone like her! More...

This review is for their cat sitting service. We have used Bare Paws several times to feed and visit our two young cats, one under two years old and the second less than a year old. Not only do our cats require a lot of attention and playtime, but they also tend to get into a lot of trouble!Echoing other reviews here, our sitter Fatimah is an absolute angel when it comes to taking care of them. She even sweeps up when they, for example, raid the pantry and dump an entire bag of rice on the floor, so we don't have to deal with three days of rice being tracked through the apartment.My favorite part of the Bare Paws service is the daily email with picture updates of our fur monsters. All in all a great service for anyone with cats on the Upper East Side! More...

We have been using Bare Paws for our frenchie, Greyson, for the past few months and could not be happier! Davon has been an incredibly caring walker - he has gotten to know Greyson very well and always goes the extra mile to make sure our pup has a good time while we're at work during the day. His written updates (with photos) make us smile, and it's clear Greyson feels right at home under Davon's watch. In summary, Bare Paws is a reasonably priced and reliable organization with staff who truly care about animals and their well-being. We're glad to have found them. More...

Barepaws is great! I've been really impressed with the service, all my interactions with the business and the staff have been really positive. We've been out of town an unusual amount this year, so I've used their cat-sitting service quite a bit. Online scheduling is quick and convenient and Violet is very helpful over the phone/email if there are any follow-up questions. Their cat-sitter, Katelyn, has been wonderful, sending pictures and updates through the website for every visit. I feel like my cat is in good hands while we're away and that's such a great peace of mind. Highly recommend! More...

Bare Paws has been wonderful! They have been super accommodating wth our two kittens -- even when it's last minute ( my girlfriend and I have irregular schedules and there are a lot of changes week to week. ) Katelyn is great, always sending pictures of them when she feeds and watches them! I'd recommend Bare Paws to anybody who needs a cat sitter!! More...

Zena took great care of my cat while I was away for a week. She always shared timely updates and it gave me peace of mind that my cat was in such good hands. It was really easy to use the app and I appreciate that Bare Paws doesn't charge extra for weekends and holidays as I've seen at other places. Highly recommended! More...

I would first like to start off by saying how amazing Bare Paws Dog Walkers and Pet Sitters were to me and my dog. I was able to call Bare Paws last minute to schedule a dog sitting when I was having my baby. I was a week late over my due date so I was induced. With that said, the initial plan I had for my dog fell through because the person was no longer able to watch him. I quickly found a dog sitting company (Bare Paws), and asked what accommodations they could make for me being that I needed someone to overnight with my dog for those few days I would be in the hospital. The Owner quickly responded and said they can definitely accommodate for my emergency. She even came right before I left for the hospital to get a walk through of places he likes to go to on his walks as well as get an idea of what his daily routine is like. While I was gone, she sent various photos and videos for me to see and kept me updated on what his day was like from beginning to end. I definitely could not have asked for a better company to watch my dog. If you haven't noticed, I am an extreme doggy mom who absolutely wants the very best for my dog. I'm glad I was able to have that and more. I would definitely use Bare Paws to watch my dog again as well as recommend to anyone who needs their services! More...

Violet is amazing! She takes amazing care of both my dog and cat. She is so observant, to the lint that she quickly took care of my dog, when she realized that my dog had cut her paw on a shard of glass. She also noticed when my dog was sick and recommended vet services and has been amazing with my cat. She is also amazing at communicating is backup Walker's will be walking my dog that day. You'd be lucky to have her, or anyone with this company, watch your pets. More...

Violet and her team took care of two of my cats while on vacation. Violet was professional, great at communicating, and efficient. They also sent pictures of my cats from the visits, which was great. More importantly, I think her team really quality time with my cats-- afterwards, she sent me recap of the visits with a very accurate assessment of their personalities. This was my first time using a professional cat-sitter rather than having friends stop by, and I'd definitely do it again. More...

Q&A

All of our sitters have different parts of the job that we like the most. The consensus love the feeling of walking into your usual cat or dog's home and being greeted like champions. The licks, excitement, tail wags, and purring can never be replicated. I personally enjoy cuddling on the couch with a purring kitty.

After 3 years of professional dog walk and cat sitting. In order to serve all of my clients, I have assembled an experienced team of pet lovers and enthusiasts. To help me in my mission of taking great care of all these tails and paws.

Why Bare Paws?

GPS Technology and Photos- Receive notifications on your phone after your dog/cat's service is complete. You will receive photos of your cat or dog. Dog owners will receive the route that their walker has taken.

Same Person Every Time-Your pet will receive the same Pet sitter/walker every time. It will allow your pet the luxury to bond with one person.

Insured and Bonded- We have an extensive insurance policy. Covering your dog, property, and keys.

No minimum Walks- Need a walk only once in a while? We let you pick and choose when you need walks.

Cat Sitters- That are all ex or current cat parents.

Services

A quick checkup that's 30 minutes long. We come in and change kitty's litter, give fresh water, and feed. We notify you when service begins and ends.

We stay with kitty while you are away from home on an hourly basis. Litter can be changed. We will feed your cat and provide fresh water. Lots of social time with kitty.

Private walks are one on one walks between a dog walker and your pup. If you have more than one dog the walk will be between your dog walker and the pups in your home. It is a great service for pups that may not do well with or feel uncomfortable with other dogs, younger dogs or puppies that are more interested playing with other dogs than walking, elderly dogs that need a slower pace, or pups that need to reinforce any training you are working on.

Your pup will be walked with no more than 3 companions and often it is just 1 or 2. Your pup will never be alone or unattended. This is a great service for dogs that do very well with other dogs, dogs that may like to socialize, and a great option for pups that want bathroom breaks. This service is currently available in select areas within East Harlem, Central Harlem, Upper West Side, Morningside South Street, Lower Manhattan, East Elmhurst, and Parkchester. Please contact us for details.
