To get your dog on a subway in New York, it has to be able to fit in a bag or container. But despite having a humongous dog, this man was still technically abiding by the rules...

As dog owners, we’ll all do just about anything for our pooch. And if you lived in busy NYC, you’d probably want to bring them out and about with you for adventures.

Well, we all know that New York is a pretty big place, and adventures normally require use of their extensive subway system, which isn’t exactly easy-going when it comes to canines.

MTA have some pretty strict doggy rules

Dogs are technically allowed on the subway, but they do have to abide by this one rule:

"No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers,"

And if you think about it, that’s kinda difficult to follow if you’ve got a medium or large-sized dog. But, it seems that hasn’t stopped dog-loving New Yorkers taking the subway with their beloved pups...

A guy came up with the most hilarious dog sack invention

Twitter user @WillSCourtney posted a video of an owner, with his huge dog disguised as a bag, neatly resting on his shoulder. He attempted to board the subway, but the MTA conductor just wasn’t having it.

Talking to Gothamist, Will said: "I talked to the dog's owner for a little bit afterwards; he said that he'd been carrying his dog in that setup for a long time, and had never had a problem before that day”

We love how he just reponds to the conductor as if his bag is completely normal, like: “Oh, there’s a dog in my bag? Oh right! It’s just a normal bag! There's nothing to see here, dude!”

And it’s not just this dedicated dog owner who’s been getting creative for the subway - check out the video, and some of our favourite doggy bag inventions, below:
