Due to impending inclement weather, the Museum and Bryant Park have made the difficult decision to CANCEL Paws on Parade scheduled for Saturday, September 23rd. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Paws on Parade

Saturday, September 24

Everyone’s invited to bark in Bryant Park at the AKC MoD’s 40th anniversary dog parade!

This event recognizes 40 years of the Museum’s mission to preserve, interpret, and celebrate the role of dogs in society. We will bring together local dogs and dog lovers of all ages in a festive gathering culminating in a parade of pups around the park. To participate in the parade, dogs must be registered.  The first 100 participants to register will receive a sample of dog treats from Blue Buffalo and a FREE dog ticket to a future Furry Friday event at the AKC MoD.

This event is free and open to everyone--bring the pack and your lunch to picnic in the park while watching the dogs march by.

It’s going to be a tail-wagging, wonderful time!

Register Now!

Out of courtesy to our neighbors, only service dogs and invited demonstration dogs are allowed in the museum.



Service animals are welcome in the museum. The museum entrance is wheelchair accessible via the building’s main plaza on the corner of Park Ave and E 40th Street. Accessible elevators are located on the first floor of the museum to the left of the admissions desk and gift shop. Public restrooms include accessible facilities.
