Taking your dog to the park can be a highlight of most dog owners’ days, particularly on warm and sunny afternoons. But blustery, snowy days are less pleasant, so what’s a dog owner to do?

Why not visit an indoor dog park? This way, your dog gets the exercise and socialization that they need, and you get to stay warm and dry.

If you’re a New Yorker, you’re in luck because this list delves into the details of three indoor dog parks and one doggy daycare in and near New York City.

Indoor Dog Parks Are a New Trend

The concept of indoor dog parks is a relatively new trend. In NYC, there are only two indoor dog parks and one doggy daycare that has an indoor park.

While there are currently only a few, more indoor dog parks will likely start appearing over the next few years.

Always Read the Fine Print

Before you bring your dog to an indoor dog park, you should always read the fine print and double-check the rules.

Indoor dog parks tend to have many rules, which is perfectly understandable because your dog is inside and in much closer quarters than at a traditional dog park. The people who run these parks can be liable if something goes wrong. They usually expect your dog to be spayed or neutered and have up-to-date vaccines. They also won’t allow dogs that have aggression issues around other dogs.

They might also have very specific rules. For example, Wag + Bone doesn’t allow spiked collars. So, read everything, and get in touch with the indoor dog park staff to ask any questions that you might have. It’s always best to be prepared!

Other Indoor Places You Can Bring Your Dog

If you want to get out of the weather in a dog-friendly place and an indoor park isn’t your cup of tea, you can try one of NYC’s dog cafés.

  • Boris & Horton has two locations, one in Brooklyn and a new one in East Village. These unique cafés are off-leash, so you can enjoy coffee, tea, beer, or wine and snacks (for you and your dog) while your pup wanders around and makes friends.
  • Château Le Woof is an indoor dog park and café in one. It has a large off-leash play area, along with dining tables where you can enjoy lunch and wine. It even offers grooming! You need to sign a waiver to use the play area, which is located in Astoria.
  • The Black Lab Café is found in the Upper West Side and offers what you would expect in a café, but it also has a dog menu with all kinds of goodies!
  • The Barking Dog is a dog-friendly restaurant that has two locations: Hell’s Kitchen and the Upper East Side.

Conclusion

New York City is home to two indoor dog parks for general use and one used for dogs in daycare and boarding. But NYC is also home to several cafés that are dog friendly, so both of you can enjoy food, coffee, and socialization.

Remember to check the rules, and consider calling the park or café to ensure that you know the rules before bringing in your dog.
