A big thank-you to all of our pals who made the weekend so great

Cesar Millan was rushed like the Beatles, hundreds (if not thousands) of dogs enjoyed copious amounts of treats and one runaway dachshund was caught and safely returned to his owner on Sixth Avenue. Yup, all in all, the NYC Pet Show was a big success this weekend – and we have many people to thank!

Major props go to dog trainers Kate Perry and Robert Haussmann, who spent hours answering your biting pet questions. We hope their priceless advice – on everything from dog walking to nipping barking in the bud – was helpful to those who needed it.

We’d also like to thank photographer Stephanie Badini, who made visitors and their pets look like absolute stars in her sweet shots. Look for those images online tomorrow!

A big paws-up to our giveaway sponsors, too, who made some raffle winners and their furry friends very happy. We couldn’t have done it without the New York Dog Spa and Hotel and Ritzy Canine Carriage House, ModKat litter box manufacturers, as well as Kate Perry and pet photographer Rachel Eve, who so generously donated their services to winners. And last but not least, our gift bags were chocked full of amazing treats thanks to Hugx Pet Design, KONG, Mulberry, Pawsoff and our friends at Oliver Bentley’s Barking Bakery.

Hope to see you all next year!
