  • The Best Dog Friendly Events in NYC: Spring 2019

    by Emily Bergquist

    New York is a very busy city in all seasons, and even more so as the winter subsides and the weather invites us outside. Spring in the city is abundant with things to do. From concerts and sports games to parks, beaches, parades, and broadway shows, there is something for everyone. That, of course, means there is plenty to do with your furry loved ones as well. Here’s our list of some of the best dog friendly events in NYC this Spring.

    Dogville: NYC

    For the love of puppy kisses and dopamine rushes, this event welcomes all dog lovers, even if you don’t own a dog…yet. There are plenty of therapy and rescue dogs to play and cuddle with, and the environment is designed to appease dog senses! You can visit the SoHo pop-pup from May 10th through June 2nd!

    Coffee in the Bark:

    Organized by FIDO, this neighborhood casual event is held in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on the first Saturday of every month. The event promotes community outreach and a dog friendly culture. The event offers coffee and pastries for people and dog biscuits for wet-nosed friends. The group meets in the Long Meadow at the off-leash area below the Picnic House between 7-9 a.m., so you can start the first weekend of every month just right.

    Drinks and Dogs:

    A Networking Yappy Hour brought to you by Hive

    Networking can be a bit stressful and awkward. It can be much better with adorable dogs to help reduce the anxiety! Relax and actually unwind while you meet and greet with friends, colleagues, and coworkers. The event is Thursday April 4th from 6 -9 pm at The Chester. Entrance is free with a suggested donation, and all proceeds go to support Rescue City, who will also be providing adoptable dogs at the event. The first 100 people will receive an open bar wristband, and the event is limited to 175, so reserve your tickets today!



    Enjoy a good laugh with great food, German beers, and the company of pups at DSK’s Haus on Hanson on April 25th from 8-10pm. The show will feature comedians such as Aparna Nancherla (Corporate, Bojack Horseman), Carmen Lagala (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Carolines), Ana Fabrega (Los Espookys, Portlandia), Chris Calogeroickets (Good Morning America, Vice), and many more! Dogs are also invited onstage to perform tricks. Tickets are only $5, so get them before they sell out!
