Can I Travel with My Dog to New York City?

New York is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the world, and you’ll notice it immediately – there are puppies everywhere!

In the high energy, super-ambitious business world that buzzes in the Big Apple many couples are actually beginning to choose furry children over human ones.

In fact, the adoption networks in New York even import unwanted and stray dogs from the south since they can’t get adopted fast enough!

So when you’re planning to visit NYC and asking the important question about what to do with your furry friend the answer is – bring him (or her)!

This fabulous pooch is a queen among canines. Born and raised in NYC her name is Dakota and you can follow her on the @input_lofts Instagram.

Many hotels are even dog friendly, particularly in the Tribeca area. Cafes often have outdoor seating allowing for pets to sit next to you, or on your lap if you like. There’s nowhere to enjoy with your dog better than Central Park. Although dogs aren’t allowed in some parts of the park a huge amount of the 700 acres is perfect for you and your pooch.

Plenty of shops have little tins of biscuits on or behind the counter so when you walk inside to buy a bottle of wine, unless there is a designated “dog parking” sign outside, bring your pooch in with you and they might well find a tasty treat. The art galleries in Chelsea love pets! I’ve even seen one of the straight-off-the-runway models who staff these upmarket art stops clean up after an excited pet who liked the art so much she peed in front of it. I’ll never forget the image of the woman bending over in her mini-skirt and Jimmy Choo’s to wipe the floor with a perfectly manicured hand while saying, “oh she’s just the cutest dog ever!”

You’ll discover treats hidden in shops throughout Tribeca, cafes in the East Village who serve a pooch-only menu and hotels that will relieve your dog’s stress in the spa New York City is perfect for travelling with your furry best bud.

Here are 3 Tips for Traveling with your pup in NYC from the experts at Biscuits & Bath:

  1. Acclimatise your dog to other dogs, loud noises, traffic and the bustling of a very busy city. Dogs are welcome pretty much everywhere in NYC so provided your pooch can handle it, they can explore the whole place with you!
  2. Pack right for your pup. You wouldn’t leave your passport, toilettries, medications, or favourite outfits at home, so don’t leave your dog’s essentials either! Pack their favourite toys, food and treats of choice, medications or important bits and pieces since there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to find replacements or alternatives while you’re away.
  3. Pick a pet-friendly hotel. There are lots of hotels in NYC that will not only allow you to bring your pet but pamper them right along side you at the spa or in the restaurant. Try the Kimpton hotels or a pet-friendly search engine like BringFido.com. If you find a hotel you fall in love with, send them an email or call before you book to guarantee you can bring your dog and fill out the frequently-required pet registration form.
