Luckily, dog owners who live in the UK’s capital are allowed to take their dogs on the tube and buses as long as they’re on their leads and can be carried on the escalators (unless you have an assistance dog which has been trained to walk on moving escalators). If they’re too big to be carried on escalators you’ll have to use the lift or stairs. For dogs across the pond, however, the rules are a bit different. New York City’s underground is off-limits to dogs unless they fit into a bag or carrier. Small-to-medium dogs have options, but what’s a big dog owner to do? Well, intrepid New York dog owners have mastered the art of training even the biggest dogs to ride happily in a backpack or duffle bag. Take a look at the results, they’re impressive!
