Dog Friendly… And People Friendly Too!

 

Whether you have a furry friend or just like spending time with them, there is always a reason to swing by the happiest place in NYC. Boris and Horton is New York’s first dog-friendly cafe and a great community hub to grab a coffee or attend one of our exciting events!


What Is Boris & Horton? 

Boris & Horton is a dog-friendly cafe and community space in NYC. It serves coffee and pastries, allows customers to bring their dogs, and hosts adoption events and fundraisers for furry friends to find them forever home. Boris & Horton was founded by Coppy Holzman and Logan Mikhly, who have experience in charity and dog adoption positions. 


What does it mean to be a dog-friendly cafe? 

Boris & Horton is a dog-friendly cafe where customers can bring their four-legged friends, and others can work or study amongst them. Before visiting, remember that all dogs must be dog and people-friendly to keep a friendly and safe environment. 

It is also unnecessary to bring a dog if you don’t have one; Boris & Horton hosts many adoption events that make it possible to grab a coffee and enjoy some time with these furry friends.

Background on dog-friendly cafes

Dog cafes are usually created to house and shelter dogs that can be up for adoption. They are accessible to the public and offer different ways to sign up and attend. Some dog cafes charge a cover fee per person to participate for a particular time, while others allow you to follow and grab a snack or drink for a one-time price. 

Boris & Horton is different and is free to enter and bring your furry friend along. The dogs inside the cafe are all customers’ pets that come in and roam around while they grab a coffee, study, or work from our shop! 

 

Keeping you company

The big takeaway from coming into a dog cafe is that you get to spend time with your furry friend. Having your furry friend come along while you run errands and even work from the cafe is excellent quality time for them. Besides spending time with you, it is beneficial for them to be social with other dogs, and owners get to sit back and pay for their social time inside.

Bonding with your furry friend and other dogs is great; there are even opportunities to meet adoptable pets in the shop. Bringing your pet to these events is great to keep them social, and even think about getting another friend to keep them company. 

Some requirements to keep a safe and friendly environment are having all dogs be dog- and people-friendly and having all their vaccinations per the NYC law. Since dogs are all off-leash as well, monitoring kids when they come in and keeping an eye on your pets is essential!

Don’t have a pet? 

Don’t worry at all about not having a pet of your own to bring into the cafe. Boris & Horton is a great community hub where others can come in with friends, visit alone or attend some of the adoption opportunities. 

Adoption events are super beneficial because not only are you more likely to help your four-legged friends find them forever home, but you’re helping free up space in shelters and bring more awareness to these dogs and shelters.

Boris & Horton isn’t just for those who want to grab a coffee; it's open to those who want to get out and meet other friends and four-legged pals too! Whether you are interested in attending an event or grabbing a quick cup of coffee, Boris and Horton cafe has a ton to offer.
