Downtown dogs!

When we go away by car, we like to take Skye-dog.  Wouldn’t you?

But I’ve never taken her to New York City.  Perhaps I should…

I love New York City for many reasons:  its dog-friendliness is one of them.  Here is the sign outside one of Biscuits & Bath’s locations, a doggie day care and well-ness spa.


And there’s this great play area with water and doggie bowls so they can frolic and play.  Of course, its not the same as playing around on grass or muddy ground.  But the park people in NYC are making a concerted effort to keep dogs from ruining plantings.

There are other more natural dog parks in the city; I saw many that were in the middle of Manhattan with areas segregated between small dogs and larger ones.

There is a website that gives information about where they are called City Doggy.  It might be surprising to many how accommodating New York is to dogs!

The first dog run in Manhattan was created at Tompkins Square and there is a volunteer group managing it called Friends of First Run.

Happy city dogs!
