Bull Moose Dog Run in New York City

Bull Moose Dog RunThe Bull Moose Dog Run is located on the Upper West Side of New York City, and it’s a great place to take dogs of all sizes. There are actually two dog runs, with one being for larger dogs and the other for smaller dogs. Dog owners have the responsibility of choosing which dog run they should enter based on the size of their dog and the number of other dogs that are playing.

The dog run is open daily, year-round, and it is located just outside of the American Museum of Natural History. There are a couple of ways to get to the dog run, but the main entrance to the park surrounding the run can be found at West 81st Street at Columbus Avenue.

As you can see from the photograph, the dog run has a gravel base, and there are two ways to enter the dog run. The busiest times for the dog run are first thing in the morning and on the weekends when there might be 10 or more dogs in the run. Upper West Side dog walkers like to visit Bull Moose Dog Run throughout the day. There are benches on the side and shade trees during the summer for the comfort of dog owners and dog walkers.

There’s a water fountain in the park for dogs to get fresh water and clean off. In addition, there are pooper scooper shovels to pick up dog waste and there are large trash barrels to dispose of it. Dog owners must pick up the waste of their dogs or they could be subject to fines.

As with all dog parks and dog runs in the city of New York, there are a number of rules that dog owners must follow. Most importantly, dogs need to play well with others and dog owners should be respectful of each other.
