If you are in upstate New York and own a (or several) dogs, there is an event you must check out this weekend – the Dog-Friendly Downtown Launch.
Launched by Sloppy Kisses and Saratoga Arts, the initiative’s goal is to get businesses in Saratoga Springs to join together to become a downtown area that is dog friendly. The first part of the day, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. will be a scavenger hunt for you and your dog followed by a Yappy Hour at Putnum Den from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
To date, 32 businesses are part of Dog-Friendly Downtown. Dog owners can identify dog-friendly businesses via a window decal that is prominently displayed by participating businesses.
Unfortunately, I have a prior engagement at The Sagamore, so Toby and I can’t make it, but I am so excited about this! I love taking for Toby for walks in Saratoga Springs and it’s good to know there will be more places we can visit, or grab a bite to eat while walking the beautiful downtown.
We at My Tail Hurts From Wagging So Much hope more towns in the Adirondacks — and all over for that matter — adopt similar policies! Dog owners are consumers, too and being able to bring our dogs with us to places rate pretty high in our book. I know I frequent more places that let me bring Toby with me than those that don’t.
