Activities for your dog in New York

The dog runners

Brutus is fat? The good plan in New York City is to use “dog runners“, the dog walkers that allow your dog to stretch his legs: the dog runner doesn’t just walk your dog, he makes him gallop. Ideal for dogs that are a little aggressive, have a tendency to tear up everything they find or are in a little depression; jogging helps your pawed friend to watch his figure and get back into a mood that’s anything but doggy.

Dogs running

If you think your dog needs to run a little more, you can leave him between the feet of Running Paws Athletic Club, the Big Apple Dog Fitness Centre. Established in 2002, this company is the first dog jogging company in the world (there’s a first time for everything). He runs, he runs the pugilist, on one of two tracks – one is for big dogs, the other is for the shortest on leg and for old people. You can also offer a short fitness session and a trainer will run your athlete along the East River.

The dog walkers

Back to a much less tiring sport, walking. Several companies offer to take your lump sum out when you don’t have the time. Outings only for your Precious, group walks with lots of friends, or with just a few of them, you can choose all kinds of formulas. One of its companies (Swifto) even offers to monitor your protégé’s walk with a GPS system that tracks the start, course and finish of the walk. Didn’t anyone ever tell you you were invasive?

And taking care of his looks

Hotel and Spa

Scalp massage, nail trimming and aerial brushing, Perle and Bichon also have the right to take care of their looks. Longer than your own styling session at Giuseppe’s, be aware that a shampoo-dry-cut can last up to 4 hours.

New York with a dog – Best dog-friendly hotel in New York City

You are planning to travel to the United States with your dog and plan to visit New York City. But you’re wondering if it’s really the right place for a dog to stay?

Well, you should know that New York City is a “dog friendly” city. It has just over 600,000 dogs and has taken into account the love that New Yorkers have for their pets. Indeed, many cani-parks are scattered in all the districts of New York, bars and restaurants accept more and more dogs on terraces, the subway is also accessible to dogs…

But in a big city like New York, is it easy to find a good hotel that admits dogs?

Well, with this article, I will try to help you organize your stay in New York with your dog by giving you some tips on choosing the best hotels in New York that suit your dog’s needs. So, I hope that you will find the rare pearl, the ideal hotel for you and your doggie, and that you will be able to spend a dream stay in the heart of Manhattan!

However, I give you a little advice: Organize yourself a little in advance to book the hotel. Indeed, if you find the hotel well placed, which accepts your dog, available at the dates of your stay and at a correct rate, it is better to book it as soon as possible because there are not so many of them…

What are the criteria for choosing a hotel with a dog in New York City?

Hotels, apartments, palaces and unusual accommodations that accept dogs are more and more numerous in the United States, especially in New York. Faced with this ever-increasing offer, I had to select 2 essential criteria to satisfy the requirements of a doggie.

Because yes, it’s very good that a majority of hotels now welcome dogs, but we must check under what conditions?

Of course, one of the first criteria for choosing a dog friendly hotel in New York City will be to have enough space in the accommodation so that you and your dog are not too cramped.

Then the second criterion will be that there is a small garden, a park, a walk… In short, a small corner of greenery to allow your dog to relieve himself at the bottom of the hotel… This is all the more important as you will also have to take your doggy out for his daily walk. And a green space is always better than asphalt…

These are the 2 criteria I looked for while keeping my priorities:

  • Nice and not dangerous neighborhood (see my article Quartiers New York) ;
  • Good location to visit New York and enjoy the evenings;
  • Comfort (air conditioning, restaurant, wifi…) ;
  • Cleanliness;
  • Reasonable price.

Might as well tell you that the search has been long! But I managed to find 2 good dog-friendly hotels in Manhattan that meet all my criteria.
