Plan the Perfect Day for your #USQPets

Sunny summer days mean long strolls in the park for all of our #USQPets. Find the best spots to hang with your pup in Union Square this summer.

 

Thanks to our friends at the Union Square Dog Run, pets can enjoy a respite from the city streets and run around on the gravel, make new friends, and play catch. Owners can enjoy shade from our signature blue umbrellas dispersed throughout the run.

 

If you’re looking for a pet-friendly grocery story, try the Union Square Greenmarket every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 8 AM – 6 PM. Your dog might even be featured as the dog of the week. Share your photos with #GMKTDogs on Instagram and Twitter.

 

For all your pet shopping needs, like a new leash, toys or even just the basics,  stop by one of these four pet retailers in the area.
