  • London for Dogs

    Sarah Guy

    Product Code: LFDG
    Paperback
    Hand-picked favourites
    If you're a dog owner living in London (or even if you're planning a visit with a pooch in tow), this pocket-sized book contains over 120 ideas for things to do in the nation's capital (and beyond) with your four-legged friend.

    Organised around each borough from north to south and east to west, this book highlights a selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants that are dog friendly and a whole host of walks for you to enjoy.

    It showcases some of London's lesser-known green spaces and is also bursting with ideas for weekend activities such as the Lee Valley dog agility course (which features jumps, hoops and a high walk). There are also suggestions for lazier weekends with recommendations of behaviourists, groomers and dog boutiques for when you really want to treat your canine.
