Apr 02, 2024 - Antelopepets

Planning a vacation to New York City? Why not bring your dog along with you? Not only is New York a city that everyone should visit at least once, but it’s also incredibly pet-friendly. And to make planning your trip even easier, we’ve put together this handy guide that includes some essentials for safe travel, where to eat, places to visit, and our favorite shops. 

Essentials for Safe Travel

Before you leave for the airport, make sure that you’ve packed all the essentials. We recommend that you bring the following to make your trip as smooth as possible:

Where to Eat

Boris and Horton

Boris and Horton is New York City’s first dog-friendly cafe! With a wide selection of treats for humans and pups alike, this cafe is a great place to stop on your vacation. 

The Wilson

Not only does the Wilson boast delicious food and a great atmosphere, but it’s also dog-friendly and features a menu with tasty selections just for your pup! 

Where to Go

Central Park

You can’t visit New York without taking a trip to Central Park. Not only is the park dog-friendly, but it also has off-leash hours in the early morning and late night. 

Washington Square Park Dog Run

The dog run at Washington Square Park is a perfect place to let your pup stretch their legs, make new friends, and enjoy a fenced-in, recreational area in the city! Just remember to keep your pup on their leash when they aren’t in the dog run. 

Where to Shop

Just as the name suggests, Whiskers Holistic Pet Care is all about holistic health care for your pet. They carry a wide range of healthy, high-quality products — including several from the Antelope family!
