There’s no denying New York is a canine-friendly city. Here, the parks abound with dog runs, pooches are lavished with reiki and hydrotherapy, and mutts are given makeovers on Halloween. Plus, many (awesome) workplaces allow you to bring your dog to work. For our Careers issue, we asked our friends at various digital and media companies to send us photos of their four-legged colleagues, many of whom hold important positions at some of the city’s top publications and agencies. Click through our slide show to meet some of New York hardest-working pups and find out what they do.
