Walking

It’s well known that exercise and mental stimulation through daycare or walking is beneficial for a dog’s health, but that doesn’t mean that just any one can be a dog walker. We’ve combined all of the insights and experience we’ve have from our daycare, training, and boarding programs to create the most meaningful walking experience for dogs available anywhere in Metro New York.

All of our dog walkers are employees of Spot that are trained, background checked, accredited and certified. Spot does NOT believe in using contractors or freelancers to walk dogs. Spot simply won’t risk not fulfilling the promise we make to every one who entrusts the care of their dog to us by using contactors

Spot offers individual or group walks, but the difference between Spot and other walkers are individual walks are one walker and one dog – group walks have a maximum of three dogs – we don’t believe in herd walks. We believe that hordes of dogs tethered to a single walker on the streets of New York City doesn’t allow an ideal walking experience for a dog.

We welcome you to experience the Spot walking difference for your dog.

  • All Walkers background checked
  • Walkers are employees of Spot
  • Easy scheduling
  • NO herd walks
  • Daycare & Walking packages available
Walking is available at our Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Midtown West, Chelsea, Tribeca, and Mercedes House locations.

Training

There’s a time in almost every dog’s life that they can benefit from some professional training.

It’s widely accepted that a dog that has had the benefit of some training is a happier and more well-behaved and well-adjusted dog. Just like people, dogs have unique personalities. Training helps dogs seamlessly adjust and make good choices to the wide array of situations they face in their day-to-day lives. Spot offers a range of training and trainers to suit every dog and dog lovers needs. Our training experts conduct beginner through advanced obedience classes as well as the incredibly popular “Puppy Kindergarten” class that helps get the new pup in your life housebroken and recognizing basic commands so you can enjoy your life with your new puppy.

Participating in a training class with your dog will improve the communication between you and your dog and will build trust and strengthen the bond you enjoy with your four-legged best friend.

Each of Spot’s seven location have grooming stations and you can be assured that when your dog gets groomed at Spot they stay at Spot, not shipped off-property to an outside groomer.

Grooming isn’t just for aesthetics. Making sure your dog is groomed regularly is a critical step in maintaining your dogs overall health.
