Advice About Raising a Puppy in NYC (from real New Yorkers)

In an r/AskNYC reddit thread, New York dog owners provided some advice on how to acclimate a puppy to the hustle and bustle of city life. Here is a summary of those tips.

  • Socialize!: Take your puppy outside frequently. Get a camp chair, sit on a corner and let them interact with passersby so they acclimate to various sights and sounds.
  • Crate Train: Confine your puppy to a crate, pen, or leash to prevent them from developing bad habits like chewing or urinating indoors.
  • Buy All the Toys: Get a variety of chew toys and scatter them all over the house to discourage them from chewing on furniture and other inappropriate items.
  • Teach "Sit" Command: Practice the "sit" command at every crosswalk. Use a treat as the reward. This consistent training will make them significantly less likely to dart into the street if they ever get away from you.
  • Ease Into Dog Parks: After your pup's fully vaccinated, try quiet dog parks (off-hours) and assess how the dog reacts (energy level, size) before entering. Some small dog areas might still be overwhelming. Remember, not all dogs enjoy dog parks!
