Default Doggie Day Care in NYC

Hello, I am from Alaska and am thinking about moving to NYC this summer. My question is: Where could I live that has a doggie day care close by (like being able to walk a few blocks and drop my dog off in the morning) which also has a close commute to the city (about 45 mins) any help for a good dog friendly area would be awesome. Thanks!

Manhattan is crazy with doggie day care places. Here's what I found by searching Google Maps for pet day care, NYC. How you find a place in Manhattan is another story.

BE VERY CAREFUL about doggie daycare.

Biscuits & Bath has a LOT of places but the dogs urinate on some kind of astroturf and it's NEVER cleaned and stinks.

I used to take my dog to daycare, but he kept getting sick because people with sick dogs take them to daycare where their diarrhea and other illnesses are spread around.

I now have a dogwalker come to my home at mid-day and my dog's health is immeasurably better.

After looking at some doggie day cares on the UES, I refused to take my dog to any of them and instead I asked around at my vet and some of the smaller pet stores and received some names and met the people/checked references. Now my baby goes to the sweetest woman that has two dogs of her own and no more than two other dogs at a time and she is always hesitant to leave!


I am leary of dog walkers as a lot of them do group walks and they don't get personal attention.

When you interview dog-walkers ask about how many dogs go together. My dog-walker walks my dog and another dog on the same floor of my building together. And that's IT. No other dogs join them and my walker knows that if I find that she's walking more, she won't be walking my boy in the future. And my doormen WOULD tell me!
