Subway Dog Bag – Owners Innovate After Animals Ban on Subway

New York City Subway banned dogs unless they fit in a bag, so dog owners came up with innovative solutions.

There are rules to follow, and there are rules to break.

If you plan to ride the NYC subway with a pet, the regulations are clear. Animals must be contained in a container before getting onto a conveyance or entering a facility.

There doesn’t seem to be much room for interpretation here, does it?

As you can see from this picture, the New York subway rules do not specify the size of the dog or the form of the dog carrier, and some people take advantage of that to avoid being fined for violating the rules of public transport.

The MTA is clear that emotional support animals are not exempt from the rules requiring pets to be inside carriers.

CBS News producer Alex Romano recently captured this guy and his husky riding the subway, and it’s hard not to smile when you see it.

This could be because of the operation’s non-covert nature. There’s something casual about this pose. That guy is carrying a large dog in a tote bag, or perhaps it is the fact that he is carrying a dog in a tote bag.

It may give you a hint if you are experiencing a similar problem with your pet dog and the NYC subway, too. Scroll down to read about the genius solution for large dog breed specimens to travel in the NYC subway.
