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.

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.

Not sure how you’d pull it off with your own fabulous big dog?

Fortunately, you can always find a loving sitter or in-home doggy daycare close by.

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.

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

If you can’t wear the backpack, why not ride?
