January 14th is National Dress up Your Pet Day!

Posted by editor on 01/13/19

As we discover more locations allowing our furry friends to accompany us, we realize that our pups have become part of our family. There are so many wonderful pets residing right here at The Castle “pet friendly” community. Although some view it as silly, demeaning or downright cruel at times to adorn your pet in a “costume” this day makes it seem permissible and downright FUN! It allows all creatures to celebrate their personalities and of course to support the pet fashion community.*

Some pet friendly restaurants found within 10 minutes of your Castle apartment that are known to welcome dogs at weather permitting, outdoor tables in case you need help deciding where to eat with your furry friend. Bone appetit!

Pasquale Ristorante – an Italian favorite for many years. Owner Franco DiRende began his career at the famed Dominick’s Italian restaurant of Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. Share costata di vitello for two with Fido and he will love you forever!

Sonora – one of the first restaurants in the area located on the outskirts of the city, famed Chef Rafael Palomino makes a statement with every dish but tapas are the main attraction. Order Peruvian Coca de Skirt Steak (hold the chimichurri) just for your pup so he can share the experience.

Starbucks – Don’t forget to ask for a Puppuccino made just for Fido!


*Obvious tips for dressing up your pet on this nationally proclaimed day. Read their mood, if they just don’t like dressing up, let them sit this this one out. Seems intuitive but be sure the item fits properly and doesn’t restrict their movement. Many pets like to chew so avoid loose parts which are choking hazards. Never leave pets unattended while dressed and always keep your pets safe by choosing pet specified items.


Show off your pet in all his finery – take a photo and tag your post with #TheCastle and #DressUpYourPetDay on your social media.
