Looks like some people's side hustle or even main business may not be long for this world.

Perhaps a few thousand extra police might be wise to battle this fearsome crime that threatens the lives and safety of New Yorkers.


Mr. Cordero is a cutey.

I wonder who paid off DeBlasio to ban the dog walkers. This whole story reeks of corruption

When conservatives complain about these silly kinds of situations where you need a license to have a yard sale or lemonade stand, liberals laugh and say they're overreacting. But when they have to have a license to watch some pets, now it all becomes too much.

Welcome to the machine.

I have to agree with de Blasio on this one. People should not be using their residential apartments as kennels to care for other people's pets. It is a legitimate health/sanitary concern. It also creates a disturbance for other neighbors in the building due to the additional noise including barking, lots of pets in the elevator, people constantly coming and going to take the dogs out, etc.

I agree with this 100 percent.

Definitely not, but anyone should be allowed to walk someone else's dog for free or any sort of remuneration. That dog needs walking and will get walked no matter who it is, what does the city care if the person is paid for it?

I don't think dog WALKING will be against the law, but I think pet SITTING would be. That is a person taking care of your pet in a private home.

But does that mean you can't hire a neighbor to feed your cat and check up on it in your own home? That seems a bit much.

I think we need to clarify how this is supposed to work.

Anything that the city hasn't collected taxes on and/or licensed is going to be considered "illegal".
