Dog Island City, which has been located at 5-29 50th Avenue for the past five years, is moving to Court Square.
Lidia Lozovsky, the owner of Dog Island City, said she is moving in order to be in a much larger space. Her current store is about 600 square feet, while the new space at 27-18 44th Drive will be about 1,000 square feet, she said.
The move, which was first reported by LICCourtSquare blog, is expected to take place in June. Lozovsky doesn’t believe there is a new tenant to take over her current 50th Avenue space once she departs.
Lozovsky said she sells general pet supplies and offers grooming, doggie day care and cat sitting.
Her new location will on 44th Drive near the corner of Jackson Avenue, by the Burger Garage. The space is currently under construction.
“I’m excited by the move,” Lozovsky said. “I think I’m moving to the up-and-coming section of long island City.”
I would never bring my dog any place else, and Lidia has been nothing but amazing with my dog for the past 4 years! I’m thrilled to see the new place and I know my dog will be too!
Sketchy doggie day care. Do not board your dog here! My dog got bitten by another dog here and the owner Lidia is extremely unprofessional about it. 1. she didn’t call me when it happened. 2. did not take my dog to the vet right away. 3. did not separate the dog who bit my dog from the pen. later on, I took my dog to the vet and she ended up with 7 stitches on the face and multiple wounds on her head and body. and now one of her wounds become infected and has to go back to the vet. and when i try to discuss the 2nd vet visit with Lidia, she snapped at me, accusing me scamming her for money and said that my dog got bitten is her fault for being nervous. however, isn’t the daycare’s responsibility to watch and prevent any aggression in the pen? also, this is the first time that I hear her saying my dog is nervous. whenever I asked her how my dog was doing, she always said that she is sweet and sent me pictures of her playing and having fun at the daycare. now all of sudden, my dog is the problem dog. what about the dog who attack her? What a nightmare! This kind of behavior should not be tolerated. now i look back, she had never ask us for any vaccine paperwork or sign any documents which are signs of poor management. i would hate for another dog to be subject to the same situation. please stay away from this place!
