Some of us are Malamutes, Newfies or Mountain Dogs. We come alive when the thermometer dips. Others, bundle up and make the best of the wait for spring.
Either way, Brooklyn has some great spots to be a dog in winter, especially during off leash hours.
The rolling hills of the County of Kings make for excellent sledding. We know pups who love to slide down a hill after a tennis ball, sharing a sled with a person or snowplow through a pile of the white stuff.
Here are some of our favorite Hills of Brooklyn where you and pup can have a blast:
