When the Parks and Recreation Department of New York City put together this year’s Winter Jam, they made sure that dogs could be a part of the fun, too. While humans could learn how to ski, snowboard, and snowshoe in Central Park, there were plenty of pup-friendly activities, as well. Dogs let loose in the Doggie Snow Zone, which included a dog run, and an agility course where urban dogs could stretch their legs with other canines without the confines of a leash.
After playing, dogs and their owners could enjoy refreshments, shopping, and have their pet care questions answered by celebrity dog stylist Jorge Bendersky, pet behavior experts, and animal nutritionists. The Doggie Snow Zone was possible due to the sponsorship of Unleashed by Petco, as well as Biscuits and Bath; thank you for making this event a success for NYC pets!
For those NYC dogs that didn’t get a chance to play, the snow, made by Gore Mountain will be in the park for days to come, so be sure to head over to Central Park to enjoy it before it melts! Don’t forget to keep your pooch warm in colder winter temperatures- a doggie jacket and bootie will help your pet stay cozy and dry against the elements.
