Starting February 7 to February 12 of the New Year, there are six days of dog fashion shows, competitions in the ring and even a dog pageant. The much anticipated week brings people from all around the world looking forward to share the love they have for their pets.
These events happen in New York City, one of the top pet friendliest city of USA ( kudos mayor bloomberg ) and to make it easy for you, we have gather all the necessary information.
If you have never been in the city or do not feel safe going around town in your own, don't despair. Your dog can help you get to any point. Bark Baby Bark has ingeniously created New York t-shirts for dogs that literally have a silhouette of the city printed in them with high-lites on some of the most known neighborhoods like Chelsea, Central Park , SOHO and my favorite LES( Lower east Side ) among a few. Have a collection of them and just point to where you want to go at any cab, bus or subway station and youll be there in a “woof”
