Get ready to reach peak pooch as London Dog Week comes to town

Alexandra Sims

Bow to our new furry overlords as we prepare to dedicate a whole eight days to the canines of our city.

Like big mutts and you cannot lie? Here’s some news that’ll leave you smiling from ear terrier. A dedicated dog week is taking over London, celebrating man’s best friend with eight days’ worth of canine-related gatherings, activities for dog owners, or just for anyone who goes potty over pups.

Urban Food Fest is having a one-off dog-themed market where you can tuck into gourmet street food while your furry pal munches treats and gets their portrait taken. You can see them strut their stuff down the runway at a doggy fashion show, get a dose of cute at the sausage dog celebration lunch (hot dogs are not on the menu), learn more about your pooch at canine first aid and wellness events, team up with your hound in a doggy boot camp that’ll test both your paces and lounge on a dog beach at the London Dog Week closing party hosted by model and Instagram star Lilliput the, er, white maltese.

The aim of it all is to make the capital one of the most dog-friendly places in the world. LDW will raise funds to help charities Street Vet, which provides support for homeless pet owners, and Plush Bears Shelter, which helps to save dogs from the meat trade. London, it’s time to fall head over heels in puppy love.

LDW takes place Sun Mar 24-Mar 31. Find out more on the London Dog Week website
