The Woof Guide: Gaucho Doggy Sunday by Guest Dog-Blogger Anubis


Basil Barkarama has had a busy schedule of late what with training, walks with fellow squishy facers and hanging out with world famous male models so we called upon our favourite Basenji Anubis to review one of London’s hottest hound tickets in town. Over to you Anubis ….

It may come as a shock to any dog owner who’s ever had to fish chicken bones, mouldy bread or muddy sticks out of their pet’s mouths but we dogs appreciate fine cuisine. Yes, really! Thankfully, Argentinean restaurant Gaucho in beautiful, leafy Hampstead understands this, and has created Doggy Sundays, a monthly canine event with a varying theme, and this month’s was a Doggy Fashion Show.


So it was after my walk on nearby Hampstead Heath (a beautiful place for a dog walk) that this lucky Basenji found herself surrounded by over forty pups of all breeds and ages, savouring homemade cakes in a personalised bowl (notice my name and the Egyptian symbols), while my humans enjoyed their lunch by my side. The place was beautiful, the team welcoming and dedicated, and no detail too small - there was even a photographer outside, waiting to take snaps of me as I arrived on a mini red carpet set up for the event.

After the meal, all canines were invited to appear on the dog-walk and have our outfits judged to win a series of prizes. I was dressed rather casually, so I didn’t win anything but it was a fun thing to do. To top it all off, before leaving I received a wonderful doggie bag filled with goodies including delicious cupcakes (of the pupcake variety of course), a chicken-filled pastry and the latest issue of Dogs Today.

Doggy Sunday takes place the first Sunday of each month at Gaucho Hampstead. Humans are also catered for with a three-course meal including steak, and £5 for each dog is donated to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. If you see me there, come and say hi - we’re hoping Basil Barkarama will be there over summer too! For bookings contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
