HOW NEW YORKERS ARE SNEAKING THEIR BIG DOGS IN THE SUBWAY

02 Aug 2016 | by Khyati Shah | Posted in: Wag News

Did you think only Indians were ‘jugadu’ and capable of finding loopholes in the system? Think again! Pet parents in New York seem to be one step ahead. Driven by a keen desire to take their pet along, they have found a catch in the law that states “No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container.”

The catch is simple, an animal needs a ‘container’ and the size of the animal isn’t specified, and so they put their pooches in big bags and hang them on their shoulders. And no, these are not tiny Chihuahuas like Paris Hilton’s, but dogs even as big as huskies!

While wheeled carriers are available for pets, they cost a bomb and are a nightmare to carry in the stuffed subways. The dog in a tote bag option is an easier, safer and much more convenient way to carry your companion everywhere. Although with the trend catching up it remains to be seen how long before the authorities bring out a new rule.

While New Yorkers are looking for the means to carry their dogs in subways, for us in India taking our furry babies with us in the metro or public transport is a far dream! Wouldn’t you love such an option in India too? Do share your opinions in the comments section below.
