  • It's a Dog's World: Increasingly Extravagant Puppy Amenities By Peter Black | November 26, 2013

    Apparently some of New York City’s dogs live more extravagant and interesting lives than most people do. Certain privileged pups—doggies that were fortunate enough to be adopted by incredibly rich and perhaps somewhat insane owners—now enjoy the kind of swank homes that the average human can only dream of.

    Photo Courtesy of D Pet Hotels No matter how long you have been living in New York, you probably have quickly realized that New York loves its dogs.

It is part of being a real New-Yorker, but this trend is not an easy one to follow and when turning thirty years old most people face a dreadful dilemma - should I go for a baby or a dog?

  • Jumping Through Hoops: Getting Your Dog Into a “Pet-Friendly” NYC Apartment By Thomas Faddegon | April 05, 2013

    For a city with half-a-million dogs, getting one of them into an apartment or condo is hardly a straightforward process.

  • Jaguars and Wolves as Pets? Only in New York By Aby Thomas | October 26, 2012

    New Yorkers love their pets, and they leave no stone unturned to make sure that their furry and/or feathery friends are given luxury lifestyles that mirror their own. A spa for your shit-tzu, day care for your cockatiel, an exercise regimen for your Siamese—these are just a few of the many facilities available for animals in the city, and many luxury apartment buildings in Manhattan have started to host their own pet-friendly amenities as well. Having said that, there are times when the best of facilities aren’t enough for the pets people keep in their homes—simply because these aren’t the usual  animals that you’d expect to see in a luxury apartment.

  • Manhattan Pooches Now Enjoy Concierge Services By Aby Thomas | September 04, 2012

    Being man’s best friend has certainly worked out well for the pooches of New York City. Although it may be a hassle for most apartment residents to house a canine in their homes, New Yorkers don’t seem to mind and are happy to take the extra mile when it comes to caring for their pet dogs. This would therefore explain the popularity of pet friendly buildings in Manhattan, as residents would expect the five-star treatment not just for themselves, but also for their furry friends. While dog walking services have always been in demand, it turns out there’s a new service in town to make sure our pooches lead a charmed life: dog concierges.

  • Gateway Plaza Scraps Proposed Annual Pet Fee By Aby Thomas | August 30, 2012

    While we haven’t had any reports of it yet, we are pretty certain that there were celebratory woofs and meows at the Gateway Plaza on 375 South End Avenue after the owners of the complex decided not to go ahead with a plan to charge pet owners in the building with an annual $250 “pet fee.” The proposed plan, which had very strict policies like only one pet per apartment and the restriction of certain breeds, had canine-lover and feline-lover residents growling and hissing when it appeared in their renewal leases earlier this month. These Manhattan apartment residents, who loved their furry critters, quickly banded together to voice their disapproval in a letter to the owners.
