Need more dogs in your life? We've rounded up New York City's most loved celebrity dogs that every dog lover should follow on Instagram. Each of these dogs is absolutely adorable, incredibly witty, and well-known throughout the Big Apple and broader Instagram dog community.
Samson is an adorable goldendoodle from Brooklyn living with his parents, baby hooman brother, and two goldendoodle little brothers. Samson's account is full of adorable pics of his full house and lots of video footage of him and his lil hooman bro Theo.
Maxine is a beautiful corgi with the fluffiest butt in all of New York City. Both of her parents are film buffs and caption every post with a creative and relevant movie quote. In addition to being a showstopper, Maxine is a popular socialite and gets invited to NYC fashion shows and movie premieres.

Taking a cue from famous Instagram accounts @dudewithsign and @dudettewithsign, Baboy dedicates his adorable and often funny Instagram account to posing with signs throughout New York City. Why sit and patiently post with a sign while his hoomans snap a pic? As Baboy would say, "If you don’t sit for something, you’ll never get the treat."

In June 2016, Mike and I (Steph) packed up our tiny New York City apartment and put almost everything we owned into storage. We flew to the Pacific Northwest with two suitcases and our long-haired dachshund, Django. Over the next 10 months, Mike and I worked remotely, lived in both Oregon and Southern California, and spent almost all of our free time adventuring, hiking, and camping with Django. One of our all-time favorite dog-friendly adventures was a road trip down California's Pacific Coast Highway.
In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we highlight the best dog-friendly places to visit along the Pacific Coast Highway. Although the PCH technically ends just north of San Diego, we include our favorite pet-friendly beaches, parks, camping grounds, and vineyards to visit on your next road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. We also include an interactive Google Map highlighting each dog-friendly attraction along the route.
Heartworm disease is one of the most serious and potentially lethal canine diseases. It is prevalent throughout the United States and found all over the world. Heartworms are silent killers that can damage your dog’s heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys if left untreated.
If you are a dog owner, you are likely well aware that it is important to protect your dog against heartworm disease. You probably give your dog regular heartworm prevention medicine to ensure your four-legged friend's health and wellbeing. But have you ever stopped to wonder what exactly heartworm disease in dogs is? What causes heartworm disease, and how do dogs contract heartworms? What are the symptoms of canine heartworm disease? Can the disease be successfully treated?
Here is everything you need to know about the causes, symptoms, treatment, and prevention of heartworm disease in dogs.
When we brought Django home in 2015, he had 28 razor sharp puppy teeth. Like a human baby, Django explored the world by putting objects into his mouth. Although we (Mike and Steph) always tried to direct Django's chewing energy towards puppy-safe chew toys, Django would put things in his mouth and chew on items he wasn't supposed to. Since Mike and I were a part of his world, he inevitably started nipping and biting our fingers, hands, and toes.
While mouthing is completely normal during puppyhood, it is important to let your puppy know what is and what is NOT allowed to be chewed on. Why do puppies gnaw on everything? How do you keep your dog from biting you? Are there outdated training techniques you should avoid? When should you seek professional help for your four-legged friend?
We spoke to Denise Harmon, the founder of Brooklyn-based dog training and consultant company Empire of the Dog, for tips on preventing puppy nipping and biting. Here is everything you need to know.
