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, 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 into riding happily in a backpack or duffle. Color us impressed.

Not sure how you’d pull it off with your own fabulous big dog? Fortunately, you can always find a loving sitter or in-home doggy daycare close by. Or, you know, snap up a sturdy laundry tote for less than twenty bucks and try it out!

Whatever you say, Dad

Huskies, why the cuteness all the time?


Dogs: always gotta be right next to you. No, really.
