There are plenty of dog-friendly restaurants in New York, but not many boast a full-page menu dedicated exclusively to your four-legged companion. If yours has been extremely good, reserve a table at The Wilson and spend a leisurely morning enjoying brunch prepared just for the two of you. (Yes, there’s also food for humans.) Hank hopped up to the table, made himself at home in one of the comfortable chairs and barely fidgeted. (What a star.) Then, he went to town on two dishes off the dog’s-only menu: the 16-oz grilled ribeye steak and the grilled chicken breast, both served with baby vegetables. Dessert (a pupsicle) is available, but Hank is watching his figure.
NYC is as much a playground for pets as it is for people. With dog-friendly restaurants, pet-friendly hotels and awesome dog parks, your furry friend will never be bored in the city. You can even take your very good boy or girl out for some well-deserved pampering. To show you how it’s done (and make your best pal a little jealous), we recruited our friend Hank, a former foster at Social Tees Animal Rescue, to check out some of the best things to do with a dog in NYC.
If Hank’s adventures give you all the feels but you don’t yet have a four-legged friend of your own to experience a doggy day like this, check out these places where you can adopt a dog in NYC. We promise, you won’t regret it!
