Dog Island City, which announced in April that it was moving from Hunters Point to Court Square, completed its relocation earlier this month.
The doggie day care center, which had been located at 5-29 50th Avenue for the past five years, opened its new digs at 27-18 44th Drive on August 1.
Lidia Lozovsky, the owner, said the new location is significantly larger. “It’s 1,000 square feet, compared to the 600 square feet we had before,” she said.
She is now able to provide larger pens– one for the big dogs and a separate pen for the little dogs.
Lozovsky said that many of her clients have come with her to Court Square—although not all. “Some bring their dogs by cars; some we pick up their dogs; and others just can’t get over here,” she said.
However, Lozovsky said that the Court Square neighborhood is continuing to grow and that she expects many residents in the area to start using her service.
Lozovsky said she offers more services than doggie day care such as dog training, cat sitting,dog walking and pet supplies.
Meanwhile, in Queens Plaza, Lucky Pizzeria at 27-10 Queens Plaza South will be holding its grand opening Tuesday from 3:00pm-4:30 pm. The pizzeria will be offering 20% off all orders and will be providing samples.
