Owning a dog in the City does not come with a manual of rules and etiquette (sadly), so we thought we would write a post on behaviors we find can be mistaken as selfish when having a dog in the City. Dogs on Trains/Underground/Subway For the love of God, please don’t put your dog on the seats. I know that this is a very controversial area, but the seats are humans (sad but true).
