NYC Subway Bans Dogs Unless They Fit into a Bag. These Big Dog Owners Accepted the Challenge.

For dogs in the Big Apple, the subway is off-limits unless they fit into a bag or carrier (more specifically, according to the New York Times, “enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers.”)

This means the carrier is on your lap, or the floor, and not taking up an adjoining seat or foot space. This applies to all NYC public transportation.

Small-to-medium dogs have options from a sling to a backpack to a cute shoulder bag. But what’s a big dog owner to do?

Well, intrepid New York dog owners have mastered the art of training even the biggest dogs into riding happily in a backpack or duffle. Color us impressed.

Pit bull in a bag

Pit bull owners know they’ve got it good.

The New York subway system bans canines unless they can fit in a small bag, so this guy trained his pit-bull to calmly sit in his small bag.

Traveling in style

Have dog, will travel—with the right look, natch.

Dogs: always gotta be right next to you. No, really.
