launches in New York City has officially launched in New York City to help dog owners navigate city life with their dogs. The site is a resource for all things dog, and features articles for NYC dog owners as well as listings of NYC dog runs, dog trainers, daycare and boarding, veterinarians, adoptions, pet stores, and fun excursions for you and your dog. There are reportedly over 600,000 dogs in New York City, with an estimated market size around $1.5 Billion annually spent on goods and services.

DogSpin has weekly articles on different topics, and lets readers write in to ask dog trainers questions. Coverage includes things like a Staten Island ferry trip with your dog, the best dog runs in Brooklyn, upstate vacations with dogs, and dog-friendly hotels in NYC. There will also be a section starting in May for dog obituaries, so dog owners can remember their dogs through words and photos.

DogSpin was incubated by Madison Square Ventures and is based in the Flatiron District of New York City. It is a work-in-progress and will continue to add articles, useful information, and functionality to make life in New York City more enjoyable with your dog.
