Hello and Woof-Woof to our wonderful dog families of NYC,
This season we are proud of give you a fun-filled, action packed snap-shot of activities you and your dog can look forward to in and around the world’s dog mecca- New York City. Whether you like to keep in local, are venturing in from out of town or are looking to just get your paws wet with a short day trip, we’ve got you covered.
Here are our TOP picks for this season:
Art & Pup Culture
1) Bark in the Park:
While all the events are sold out on ticketmaster, we always recommend getting a ticket through Stubhub.com. The days festivities will begin with a dog parade (weather permitting) and a gathering for dogs and their people to mingle 2 hours before the game. We can think of no other event more fun for baseball fans and those that appreciate the sport of keeping a close eye on the ball at all times, ahem. For more info click here.
2) Walk Your Dog Photo Exhibition
An opportunity to admire the photographs of a group of over 40 local dogs as well as the creativity of their owners/photographers. Pet professionals will be there to answer your pet questions, refreshments, free samples, and more! Get here easily by taking the E train to Kew Gardens/Union Turnpike (just 20 mins from midtown) or by car (just 10 mins from midtown).

5) Irvington / Dobbs Ferry
A nice spring walk on the Old Aqueduct Trail in Dobbs Ferry, NY
Take a weekend day to Irvington or Dobbs Ferry w/your city dog to Westchester’s cutest little Ferry Towns. You can start in either Irvington at their train stop off Metro North or Dobbs Ferry’s train stop off Metro North. Enjoy a leisurely stroll with plenty of shrubbery, trees, flowers and grass as well as historic homes along the famous Old Croton Aqueduct Trail. This trail was built during the turn of the century to bring fresh water to Manhattan. Walk for as little as 45 mins or as much as 3 hours. Stop by in Irvington at the Black Cat Cafe (Fido Friendly seating outside) or Downtown Dobbs Ferry for a quick bite.
