My Dog-Friendly Neighbourhood: Paws&Purrs Guide to Hackney, London

Me-and-Betty.jpg

We go here, we go there but Basil and I can’t get everywhere, which is why we’ve called on two of our favourite doggy pals - Betty the Jack Russell and her owner Liz of Paws&Purrs – to kick off Barkarama’s new ‘My Dog-Friendly Neighbourhood’ feature.

The duo reside in Hackney, which is a busy borough of London. Now for those living in the sticks, the thought of inner-city dog ownership in a place like Hackney may be an unlikely concept. But actually, according to our pals at Paws&Purrs it’s probably one of the most dog-friendly places in the country! Over to you Betty and Liz for your guide to dog-friendly Hackney ….

Great coffee, scrummy cake and dog-friendly; Basil and I are feeling pretty damn excited at the news that Scooby’s Boutique Coffee Bar will open its door TODAY in North London’s Muswell Hill.

With its’ human and hound menu, lounge and boutique dog shop, Scooby’s sounds like just the kind of place for us modern dog owners to meet ‘n’ make friends, old and new. I caught up with Scooby’s owner Lisa Owen-Hughes earlier this week to find out what doggy delights lay in-store …

Bow-Wow-London-1.jpg

New pet boutique BOW WOW London has opened up in the heart of the city’s West End to cater for the growing number of hounds who accompany their owners to the office. With our own day job being located right on their door step, we caught wind of their opening early stopping by to say hello to co-owners Taro Takeuchi and Jason Maddocks, as they were in the throws of setting up shop at 50a Earlham Street in Covent Garden’s stylish Seven Dials area. From then on we were on countdown to their launch finding any excuse to wander past their door until the official opening, which was hosted by celebrity dog owner Sheridan Smith and her Japanese Spitz Trish.

The Woof Guide: Mungo & Maud Pet Boutique

Mungo-and-Maud-interior-3.jpg

Arriving at Mungo & Maud pet boutique in South West London at the end of a typical journey on public transport, pup and I were somewhat stressed. Basil especially after an encounter with a pair of fiddle-waving buskers who’d jumped our tube to play out-of-tune, high-pitched ditties. However, upon opening the door of what is probably the most beautiful pet boutique we’ve ever seen, our stress was immediately washed away for we were greeted with gold star biscuits treats, fresh water, warm smiles and sweet smells - so on the last point alone, Mungo & Maud is not your average pet store.
