An Illustrated Guide To The Different Breeds Of New York City Dog Parents

An Illustrated Guide To The Different Breeds Of New York City Dog Parents

New York City boasts great diversity nearly everywhere you look. That’s especially true if you look at a dog park. Not only are there dogs of every shape, size and smell, but their humans are also wonderfully unique and specific.

Illustrator/cartoonist/genius David Ostow noticed this, too. As he told Buzzfeed, he was inspired after dog-watching/people-watching in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. For every eccentric dog he saw, he realized there was an equally odd (if not moreso) counterpart: that dog’s human. Without further ado, here is David’s helpful (and hilarious) guide to the different “breeds” of NYC dog owners you’re likely to encounter:
