|Yeah, I had the same problem. Boris is a 60lbs APBT mix. His crate does not have wheels and is too big to carry even if it had a handle. The subway is my transportation. I do have a solution for all of you though, as long as you are willing to bend your morals a little bit. I purchased an ESA service dog tag from this site: http://www.servicedogtags.com/ and now I take Boris on the train with me wherever I need to or want to go. I do try to restrict it to times when I only need to though because I feel bad about taking advantage of this service. It is NOT a real service tag, but it WILL get you and your dog on the train. I have never had any problems with the conductors and only one incident with an officer. The officer was a rookie and did not know the laws about ESA dogs though - I wasn't about to argue. Do not bother purchasing one of these cards unless your dog is well behaved and can actually pass as a service animal. I've seen people do it anyway and it is just so obvious. The more well behaved your dog is, the better your chance is of getting on that train.
Anyway, I will leave you with this link and hopefully some of you might find it useful. Good luck, everyone!
