Doggy Daycare for Monday Night Football
Sports fans drop off their pups at Unleash Brooklyn before heading to the game.
Dogs can watch the game on Unleash Brooklyn's projection screen.

Many Major League Baseball stadiums have been hosting popular dog days in recent years. Football hasn’t been as quick to catch on, leaving pigskin fans feeling guilty leaving their pups behind to watch their favorite sport.

A New York City doggy daycare has come up with a solution for conflicted fans. Unleash Brooklyn is offering a special package for the football season that lets people drop off their pups before they head off to the sports bar or stadium. 

Fans can also watch the game with their pets on a 92-inch projection screen at the facility. Halftime festivities include fetching dog-sized footballs and playing with pompom toys.

Last weekend seven dogs came in for the Jets/Tennessee Titans and Giants/Tampa Bay Buccaneers games, some even came in fan gear.

The service costs $25 on Sundays, $20 on Mondays, and $400 for a season pass. Up to 25 percent of the proceeds benefit Dog Habitat Rescue.
