8 autumn activities for New York dogs | thepupdiary.com

23 Sep

It’s our favorite season! Cooler weather, outdoor doggy festivals, Halloween pawties, and so much more doggy fun! We listed some activities for New York dogs for spring and summer. Here are our top picks for fall:

Apple Picking
Discover Outdoors has planned some dog-friendly apple picking day trips this fall for active pups and their owners. The day activities include a moderate 6-mile hike before visiting the orchard. Cost is $89 and includes transportation.

Long Walkies
We love saying buh bye to hot and humid NYC weather and welcoming in the pawfect temps for long walkies! Fall offers many group walks like the upcoming Strut Your Mutt on September 28. The weather is also pawfect for the Walkway over the Hudson and the path along Hudson River Park. We want to Stroll to the Sea on October 12 with ARF!

Fairs and Festivals
Tis the season for outdoor festivals and fairs! The My Dog Loves Central Park Fair will be held on October 5. Old Westbury Gardens will host their dog days September 28 and 29. Taste of France comes to Bryant Park September 28 and 29. And the holiday shops at Bryant Park open on October 26.

Halloween Pawties
October is probably the busiest month to be a dog in NYC! There are several doggy Halloween parties and parades every October weekend. The Annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade on October 26 is probably the biggest. Check the event calendar for a listing of pawties and events.

School
Andrea Arden Dog Training has a great lineup of classes this fall including Cures for Cabin Fever, Stay Workshops, and Taking it to the Streets. Fashion Institute of Technology offers their course in Pet Product Design and Marketing.

Window Shop
We love to tour the city and check out all of the beautiful holiday window displays. We check out all of the windows at the biggest department stores.

Top Hat and Tails
Fall is a great time to get dressed up! We’ll head to the dog-friendly SPCA of Westchester’s Top Hat and Tails event on October 18. Celebrity Catwalk’s Tinsel & Tails on December 7 is another one of our faves!
