Anyone in Manhattan have at least two large dogs?
What has your experience been in finding housing and outdoor areas for the pups?

I can't really help you, but I can tell you that I'm about to move to the City in a little over a month (mid-August) and will be bringing my 65-lb. black lab with me. Two places I've looked into and will be going to in a few weeks have already cleared my dog to live there are: Avalon Riverview in Long Island City, and the Octagon on Roosevelt Island. My understanding that outside of using big managed complexes like those, it's hit or miss depending on the landlord. Also, my understanding is that New York is one of the most dog-friendly places in the country, with parks galore to take the dog. In that connection, I don't foresee you having a problem finding places to take the dog to play.

If you have a lot of money and time to walk them its not such a big deal. You are going to need to live near a park with a dog park in it. And make sure you have A LOT OF MONEY in order to find a place that will take you and your large friends.

Ain't this the truth. I was walking along Hudson Street on Friday and I saw this guy walking 3 of the largest huskies I think I've ever seen. I thought they were wolves at first - they were pretty huge.

The title of this thread is very cute .

I used to have a pit bull but I was already in my apartment and the landlord never complained about it. The law here is that if you have the animal in your apartment and are open about its existence for 3 months (take it out for walks and dont hide it in your apartment), then the landlord must allow you to keep the pet DESPITE any language in the lease to the contrary. After 3 months, the landlord has waived its right to cite you for the breach of the lease in bringing the pet in in the first place.

That is AWESOME!!!!

We usually have to keep our kitty a secret, 'cause most places only allow two pets. Here in Seattle, there aren't many places that will take two large dogs.
We have a couple of years to plan things out. We're saving money!
We may transfer to a building within the management company we rent from now to make things easy then look around for something cheaper once we're there.

Thanks for the responses.
