The best places to take your dog in NYC 

Ah, New York City. The perfect place to go sniffing around with your furry friend. For those new to town or just visiting, it may not seem like it, but NYC is teeming with places to hang out with your pup. Not sure where to get started? Well, luckily we’ve done the scoping for you. Here are some of our NYC favorite spots to bring a dog. See you there! 

Black Lab Cafe 

Location: 420 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10024 (UWS - 80th & Amsterdam)

Take a little walk from Central Park and you’ll find this charming coffee shop. On the menu for you is a variety of coffee, pastries, breakfasts and more. And there is also a whole other menu for your dog!

Seaport Paw

Location: 38 Peck Slip, New York, NY 10038 (FiDi- Peck Slip & South Street)

Right near South Street Seaport (a delightful place to walk about with your pup), Seaport Paw is a locally owned grooming salon to get the city grime off your four-legged friend after a day of adventuring.

The Wilson

Location: 132 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001 (Chelsea- 27th Street & 7th Avenue)

After a walk on the Highline, Chelsea’s elevated outdoor park, you might fancy a bite to eat or a cocktail. If that’s the case, look no further than The Wilson. There is delicious food for you and a whole menu - entrees and desserts! - for your pup.

Boris & Horton

Location: 195 Avenue A, New York, NY 10009 (LES- Avenue A & 12th Street)

Now this one is really a must. Our good friends at Boris & Horton are famous around town for their delicious coffee, delectable dog treats, and their commitment to helping fur babies find their homes. Make sure to stop by and tell them we said hi.


Lucky Dog Bar 

Location: 303 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211 (Williamsburg - Bedford & 2nd Street)

Take your dog on a scenic walk over the Williamsburg bridge to end up at Lucky Dog Bar. It has a chill vibe, tons of dogs, cheapish drinks and a whole backyard to play in. 


The Barking Dog

Location: 1678 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10128 (UES - 3rd Avenue & 94th Street)

There are a few Barking Dog locations in the city and they’re all a great time. Founded with the mission of creating a place for dogs and people to dine together, this restaurant lives up to its vision.


Our favorite parks 

Contrary to popular belief, New York has a lot of green space. There are tons of places to let your pup run, play, and lounge off leash. 


Here are just some of the best:

  • The dog run at Pier 26 (Tribeca)
  • Off leash hours (6:00 am - 9:00 am) in Central Park
  • The Tompkins Square Dog Run (East Village)
  • Jemmy’s Dog Run at Madison Square Park (Flatiron)
  • The dog beach in Prospect Park (Brooklyn)

If you really want to gallivant across the city like a local, you’re going to need some essentials. We’ve compiled our top picks for city pups here.
