BEST PLACE TO TAKE YOUR POOCH SHOPPING
HARRODS PET SHOP Only the most exclusive products are appropriate for Harrods’ four legged clients. Where else could you pick up a Burberry dog coat to match yours? For those Sex and the City-esque nights, ensure that your pooch looks her most glam with a Swarovski crystal encrusted collar. And what about Kitty? Well a catnip cigar of course – Mr. Big would approve!
Harrods, 87-135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London
Best PLACE FOR A PLAY DATE
ST. JAMES PARK Not only are there acres of land here to romp about but the park is situated just a stone’s throw away from Buckingham Palace – Fido may even be lucky enough to rub noses with the Royal Corgies! Just remember, your pooch has to pick sides – like everyone else, dogs have football fever in London, so which will it be – Arsenal or Manchester United?
St James Park, The Mall, London
BEST ANIMAL SHELTER
BATTERSEA DOGS HOME Probably the most famous rescue shelter in the world. At the dog’s home in Battersea, their motto is to rescue, reunite, rehabilitate, and rehome. It was set up over 140 years ago and has since saved the lives of thousands of cats and dogs.
