a very doggie holiday

Tis the season to be a dog… well, that is year round… but this holiday season, below are some fun activities and dog friendly places to enjoy with your number one best friend.

Have a dog Christmas Eve or Chanukah party! Invite all your friends and their dogs over. While you and your friends enjoy fresh-baked holiday treats and cookies, egg nog and/or hot chocolate, your dog and her furry friends can munch on peanut butter dog biscuits. Do a Secret Santa Paw Pal type gift exchange… ask friends to bring a dog toy for their favorite paw pal.

Take your dog to visit Santa! S/he may have been naughty or nice and have her own wish list. Plus, she’ll enjoy the fun of meeting Santa and you’ll get a photo of your pooch on Santa’s lap to cherish and send to loved ones!

Listen to holiday music, sing songs, go Christmas carolling with your dog and give out dog treats and cookies to your neighbors.

Kosher dog cookies?

  • Nothing’s more iconic than spending Christmas in New York. The Affinia Manhattan and Skyline Hotel New York are both dog-friendly and a short walk away from New York’s most pawpular attractions. To take in the holiday cheer, walk your dog to Rockefeller Center and view the enormous Christmas tree that’s on display each December.
  • Transportation for you and your pooch is easy in the Big Apple. Just hail one of the city’s k-9 cabs.
  • Those visiting the Big Apple can also take their dogs for a winter stroll in Central Park, grab a bite to eat at these dog-friendly restaurants or quench your thirst at one of these bars or coffee shops where wet noses are welcome.

  1. Will and Eko

    Last year’s photo with Santa came out looking like Eko was getting choked by Old Saint Nick, so we will definitely have to try again for something more Christmas card worthy!
