In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, all New York City dog meetups and events unfortunately have been indefinitely postponed. We'll update this page as soon as social gatherings in NYC have been reinstated. Stay well friends!
Here are a few highlights from recent NYC dog meetups and events. Hope to see you at an upcoming meetup soon!
Boris & Horton is a dog-friendly coffee shop in New York City's East Village (195 Avenue A at 12th Street) that hosts dog breed meetups throughout the year. You can see a full schedule of their events here.
Boris & Horton's meetups are typically breed specific and hosted by one of two local NYC pups. With that said, any and all dogs (and humans) are of course welcome. Also worth noting - Boris & Horton charges a $5 cover for humans attending doggy meetups.
The World Dog Expo celebrates dogs of all shapes and sizes in spectacular fashion. Attendees enjoy tons of dog-friendly events, such as dock diving, disc dog, lure coursing, weight pull, agility, fly ball, obedience, scent work, french ring sport, barn hunt and schutzhund. There are also opportunities for dogs and owners to participate together in sports, training and other bonding experiences.
Perhaps the main attraction of World Dog Expo will be the notable trade show event, featuring a huge array of dog–centered products. Attendees will be able to find the newest and best products for their canine companions. Participating vendors will benefit from the unprecedented exposure created for the event.
The World Dog Expo is being held at Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ. Purchase tickets directly on the World Expo website.

Mike and I (Steph) were thrilled to attend the 2020 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show! We met so many beautiful dogs and watched as Siba the standard poodle was crowned Best in Show! We also hung out in Home Depot's booth at Pier 94 and let our 10 month old (Django's Lil Bro) test our Home Depot's spill-proof, stain-proof, and dog- and baby-friendly LifeProof carpets.
