Living in London: A Canine Perspective

My dog pals back home think I’m at a disadvantage living in London following my international pet transport adventure from Australia, because of the lack of exercise facilities compared to the country. What they don’t know is that there is a surprising number of woodlands, estate gardens and riverside walks for me to enjoy (provided Mum or Dad clean up my business along the way). When I’m feeling particularly energetic we take the bus or rail to ‘Doga’ (dog yoga) in East London which helps me relax and calms my breathing. Don’t woof it ‘till you try it! When it’s my birthday, or I haven’t chewed the rug at the front door for a whole week, I’m treated to a wash and fluff dry at one of the local doggy spas in Chelsea, where I catch up with some of my friends – cats, rabbits, and even the tortoise crew. Afterwards we relax at a nearby dog-friendly cafe before I’m tricked into my annual check-up at our vet in Belgravia (eek). All in all, life for a pooch in the city of London is very suitable.

Did You Know?

We all know that Queen Elizabeth II loves corgis, but did you know that she has owned over 30 during her reign? Her Majesty’s corgis are rumoured to enjoy fillet steak dinners specially prepared by the palace chef, and they often fly with her on important business.

About London

London is synonymous with culture, arts, and royalty and has an expansive list of highlights and attractions. The city is a fun place for pets to explore, with an abundance of pet friendly hotels, parks, and luxury animal grooming facilities.
