How to Prep Your Pup For Winter in Downtown BK

In Game of Thrones fashion, “winter is coming” and soon it will be time to bundle up and face the elements. Sure, we can start looking for coats, hats, and gloves but what about our fur babies? We did the research and found some of the best places in and around downtown Brooklyn to get your pup (or kitty) ready for the colder months.



NYC Pet, located at 218 5th Ave (one of six locations), is one of NYC’s best ‘mom & pop’ pet supply stores. This place is stocked with a wide variety of natural, holistic and famous brands. Whether you’re looking for basic nutrition or a new pet parent and looking for some guidance, NYC Pets is your one-stop shop. George, the shop’s resident product expert, has over 30 years’ experience and is ready to answer all your burning questions. If you currently don’t have a furry friend, NYC Pet also hosts rotating adoptions and foster cats. You can stock up on all your basics including food, treats, coat care items, booties, and other cold weather accessories. George and other knowledgeable staff will help you find the best buys for your pooch. Best of all, this shop is just a short walk from Hub!

Beastly Bite is another neighborhood favorite pet store. The awning states, “fine pet foods & accessories” and from clothing to specialty treats, they have it all. Beastly Bite also offers free delivery! So even on the coldest and laziest days, you can get your supplies sent straight to your apartment door. Another staple is PetSmart. We all know and love PetSmart as a nationwide staple. Hub’s local PetSmart also houses their own Animal Hospital, Banfield Pet Hospital, right in the store. This makes any check-up or last-minute sick visit very easy. The place is huge, so if you can’t find what you need in a smaller boutique, PetSmart will have you covered. You can even consult with a vet on staff. Between boutiques and national chain stores, you will find all you need to keep your dog safe, warm and healthy during the upcoming winter months.



Remember a few key things before you get shopping for your own doggo! Your pup will need a jacket that is both warm and stylish, booties to keep salt and slush off their paws, a good de-shedding brush and lots of tasty treats. All of these neighborhood shops should be able to get you “covered” just in time for winter. With Hub’s built-in dog run, winter won’t be as cold and bitter. As a dog oasis away from the mean streets of NYC, your furry friend can easily meet for playdates at Hub’s dog run. In addition, don’t you forget about our yappy hours! It’s fun for the pets and their parents. Stay tuned to our monthly newsletter and enjoy the upcoming winter events with your fur babies. We know you and your pup will love it.
