For dogs in the Big Apple, the subway is off-limits unless they fit into a bag or carrier. Small-to-medium dogs have options from a sling to a backpack to a cute shoulder bag.

Traveling in style
Have dog, will travel—with the right look, natch.

“Hold me, hold me, hold me!” – dogs.
Whatever you say, Dad
Huskies, why the cuteness all the time?
Dogs: always gotta be right next to you. No, really.
If you can’t wear the backpack, why not ride?
I’ll go where you go
Can I just boop your dog real quick?
Can you see the sign?
Yes, because dog vision.
Are you looking at me?
Why yes. Only in NYC, a.k.a. dog paradise.
