What you'll do
We will meet at Union Square to start off our trip. My dog Sasha (sasha_the_shibapoo on Instagram) will be the tour guide for the guest dogs. Dog owners are not required to come and join us but they may. I will be taking photos and videos of the dogs at each location we visit. We will walk around Union Square Park to see outdoor vendors and experience the liveliness of the busy park. We will then walk down Broadway to get to Washington Square Park. We will stop at the fountain to take pictures and rest for a bit at one of the benches. We will then stop in at the WSQ dog park for the dogs to play and meet other NYC pups. We will then make our way east to Tompkins Square Park. We will walk around it and stop by at the TSQ dog park. We will then make our way straight to Boris & Horton Dog Cafe. We will stop here for some coffee/tea and the dogs will get a freshly made treat from the B&H bakery. We will hang out here for an hour and end our tour here.

I am the momanager of an insta-famous dog, sasha_the_shibapoo (16.2K followers on instagram). I love dogs and am passionate about making dogs lives happy and enjoyable. I was a dog-sitter on Rover (previously called DogVacay) for four years. I love all kinds of dogs no matter their size, breed, or temperament. I have had lots of experience working with dogs and dealing with them in the past five years. I have lived in my neighborhood (East Village/Gramercy Park) for over three years now and I really think that it's the best neighborhood for a dog to be in! I would love to bring my passion for dogs and my neighborhood together by bringing dogs (and their humans) the best guided dog tour experience possible!
Treats and Water will be provided to the participating dogs.
