December Pet Events in NYC

Hey NYC! After a week of swiping Metrocards, running for your train, or having to stand next to “that guy” who may have forgotten to shower… why not do something fun with your pet? There are a lot of great activities and events happening in December around the city that you can attend and some of them want your dog there as well.

Cesar Milan is touring and will be at the Westbury Theater in Westbury, NY on December 2, 2011. His presentation will cover the techniques he applies and how you can use them as well as a follow up Q&A afterwards. Tickets start at $29.50 and the Westbury Theater is located at 960 Brush Hollow Road in Westbury NY. For more information and to buy tickets, visit the Cesar Milan website.

Christmas is coming and there are several opportunities to have your pet visit Santa and let him know what is on their wishlist. On December 2, 2011 the Petco located at 1155 Third Avenue in NYC will have Santa there from noon to 2pm ready to listen to the barks, howls, and possibly even meows of pets who were good this year and deserve some new toys. Have your pet’s picture taken with Santa and buy the print right there. If you also buy $40.00 worth of items you can their gifts wrapped for free!

If you can’t make the photo shoot on December 2, don’t worry! There will be another opportunity to meet Santa at Petco on December 20, 2011 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. You have two chances to bring your pet to visit Santa!

If you’re in Brooklyn, go to Unleashed over on 81 Seventh Avenue on December 17, 2011 between noon and 2pm and say hi to Santa. Your Brooklynite pet can let Santa know how good they were this year and what new chew toy they want. The photo will be taken and printed right there for you and you’ll also get some holiday treats for your furry friend.

The ASPCA is hosting a North Pole Holiday Doggie Party on December 17, 2011 from 2pm to 5pm at Happy Paws on 316 Lafayette Street. Admission is $10.00 per dog and all proceeds benefit the ASPCA. Every pet who attends will get a goody bag and their picture taken and framed. There will be games and gifts for your dog to win. If you are planning to go, please RSVP since space is limited in the doggie daycare. It promises to be a fun day for your dog to romp around inside and meet new friends.

Tri-Barka Winter Fashion Show is being held at Unleashed over at 157 Chambers Street in Manhattan on December 31, 2011 from 1:30 to 2:30. Bring your pet and dress her up in her best outfit! This is a chance for her to strut her stuff on the catwalk. They’ll be music, free pictures, and food for you and your pet. If you’d like to sign up your pet, stop by the store anytime after December 16 and let them know why your dog is the next top model!
