Briana "Violet" B.
Covered Areas: Back up visits only
Violet started Bare Paws after working as a professional dog walker and cat sitter in Manhattan for many years. Bare Paws was established officially in 2015, at that time it was just Violet walking alone in East Harlem. As word spread of her ability with pups and kitties, she had to take on additional help to keep up with demand. With that Bare Paws was started.
Violet is always up for talking about kitties, and constantly dreams about getting a dog, but can never decide which breed.
