The William Secord Gallery, located in Manhattan's Upper East Side, specializes in nineteenth century dog paintings, bronzes and works on paper. The only gallery of its kind in North America, it was established by William Secord in 1990. Since then, it has become a popular destination for those interested in dog art and collectibles. In addition to creating the gallery, William Secord was the founding director of The Dog Museum of America and is the author of Dog Painting, 1840-1940, a Social history of the Dog in Art, as well as European Dog Painting, both books available at the gallery. And of course, your well-behaved dog is welcome inside! If you ask, they will serve your pooch cookies and water. If you want a portrait of your own pooch, this gallery can direct you to several painters like Christine Merrill and Barrie Barnett. Samples of their work are located at the gallery. Merrill has painted several pet portraits for celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Bob Schieffer. Prices for consignment portraits start at $7,000 and up. The gallery is open Monday - Saturday 10a.m. to 5:00p.m. and by appointment. It is located on the third floor, so when you enter from the street, press the "William Secord" button. One of the staff members will then buzz the door open. Once inside, you can either take the small elevator or use the stairs. The toll free number is 1-877-249-DOGS.'s Sponsor's Sponsor
