It might be furrr-eezing out, but that doesn’t mean your furry friend wants to stay cooped up in the apartment all winter.
And while sitting at home binge-watching on Netflix seems like time well-spent for us humans, our beloved pets need a bit more exercise.
But don’t fret, there are plenty of opportunities in New York to make your dog’s energetic — and leash-free — dreams come true. Here are a few indoor (and outdoor) options.
