As a dog owner and lover, you’ll do anything for your dog. He’s one of the most important parts of your life and deserves nothing but the best.

After all, your dog is your best friend, your companion, and your playmate. You put thought and care into every decision you make for him, whether it’s food, toys, or a bed to sleep on.

Those decisions are some of the simpler ones…but what about care and training? These decisions are more difficult; in choosing a daycare or a dog walker, you are trusting the well being of your dog with another person or service and you definitely don’t want to leave your dog in inexperienced hands.

And in the Big Apple, choosing dog care is an even more significant decision. Where can your dog play in a safe space? Who can you find to walk and watch him in your area?



It’s because of these common urban dog owner concerns that we’re proud to present AKC Canine Retreat, conveniently located on West 57th Street in Manhattan near 11th Avenue. Whether your dog needs a place to stay while you’re at work, or when you're away for the weekend, AKC Canine Retreat is your one-stop shop for safe, expert, and personalized care.
