Each week, the Downtown Alliance will feature a local business. This week, we’ll introduce you to doggy daycare provder Ciao Bow Wow, which recently relocated to 11 Maiden Lane.

Sara DeLaney spends all day, every day, surrounded by a roomful of dogs. She loves every minute of it.

“After 9/11, I turned 50 and I wanted to do something that meant more,” the former litigator said. Along with her staff of seven, DeLaney runs Ciao Bow Wow, which caters to smaller breeds and just relocated to a larger space on Maiden Lane. Each day features a regimented schedule of playtimes, natptimes and lunch—served promptly at 1:45 PM. It’s a friendly place for dogs, who all seem to get along, despite their differences.

“We can learn a lot from dogs,” DeLaney said as serveal pooches nipped at her arm on a recent afternoon. “They truly live in the moment.”
