National Pet Day - Must Try's for You and Your Pet

Step out with your best accessory on April 11th.

You already have your SNOWMAN SXY lightweight daypack so we’re talking about that other special piece that’s always trending and never goes out of style. That timeless accessory you flood your instagram with, take the most care of, and makes you the envy of all your friends.

If you haven’t guessed already we’re talking about your furry best friend because it’ll soon be National Pet Day!

Throw on your spring SNOWMAN jacket (we’ll be putting these up soon!) and take your little one out on the town. But hey this is New York right so why stop there? Let them know just how special they are to you by pampering them at a spa, letting them run amok with specially trained athletes, and even treating them to a little shopping spree full of toys, treats, and outfits. Here we list what to do and where to go to make National Pet Day one your pet and you won’t ever forget.


Dog Parks:

Shop a little, grab a burger, and experience some art all while looking up at the iconic Flatiron building. Madison Square Dog Park Run is spacious and dog lovers love the mix of sun and shade you can find at this city park. It’s open to the public but sign up for their membership and get access to private events and perks. If you’re looking to venture out of the city for the day try Pelham Bay Dog park in the Bronx which has designated spaces so that the big dogs can play with other big boys and the little dogs can feel safe with pups their own sizes. Plus you don’t have to bring your own doggie bags because the park provides them. Also in the Bronx is Canine Court. Located in Van Cortlandt Park, this dog park allows your dog to really let loose with obstacle courses that include hoops, tunnels, and seesaws. Your pup is going to have so much fun you might find yourself hopping around in the courses yourself.


Spa: Unleashed Spa

Not only can your pup (and we can’t forget about all the cat lovers) get their nails clipped and filed, but you can go the whole nine yards and treat them to a blueberry facial and some aromatherapy at this highly reviewed spa. Your pet has feelings too and this is a great way to allow them to release some of that anxiety and stress that living in New York can bring. Sign them up for a full service session complete with consultation with one of their groomers or get your hands wet yourself with a self-service doggie bath. Their $20 package includes shampoos, conditioners, face scrubs and more. Buy 5 sessions and get the 6th free!



If you know your dog really enjoys running around or needs some exercise and you just don’t know where to start, sign up for a private jog or fast pace walk at Running Paws. Their team consists of collegiate cross-country runners, marathoners, and athletes so you know they love living a healthy lifestyle and will provide the same kind of love and attention to your pet. You and your pet will also have an introductory evaluation session to recommend the right exercise regime. Look into their Canine Retreat services which also provide daycare, training, and grooming. Drop off your pup, go for that yoga class you’ve been meaning to take, and feel good knowing you take care of both you and your canine.


Shops and Bakeries:

Zoomies is not another pet store. As their website explains, Zoomies promotes, “the bond between people and their pets thru fashion, food and fun.” This biscuit bar is not only the first of its kind in NYC but is also a classy boutique with chandeliers and scented candles. They carry notch brands in all categories including dog beds, apparel, and accessories. Really give your dog a taste of the good life by treating them to some Zoomies homemade decorated biscuits or a variety of bites. I bet your hound will leave Zoomies feeling like they literally RUN New York.


National Pet Day is just a couple days away. Don’t let the day pass you by and make it memorable for you and your little guy by trying one if not all of these special places. Get ready for the day by throwing on your SNOWMAN transitional jacket, packing your lightweight bag with all you and your pup will need, and live out National Pet Day like nobody’s business. That way the next time you and your pup walk into your neighborhood dog park, you can tell them why you guys were MIA. Leave them with something to bark about.
