Rusty’s dog friendly London places definitely tick the cool factor even though he’s only a young fella so hasn’t been sniffing things out for that long! Let’s see what Rusty has lined up for us in his My Dog Friendly London by Rusty mini-guide to dog friendly Shoreditch and Hoxton…

Please introduce yourself:

I’m Rusty Red, you can find me on Instagram as RustagramRed. I’m 1 year and 8 months old and I live in Shoreditch with my parents Tam and Seb.

What’s your favourite London Park and why?

Victoria park as it’s a short bus ride away and I love travelling on the bus. The park is very large with lots of different areas for me to sniff and explore and there are always plenty on my dog friends who hang out there too.

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I have been living in Shoreditch my whole life and love every second of it. I love going out and exploring every dog-friendly venue available and attend as many dog events as I can, as I love to do my bit for charity.

I recently came 1st in a charity dog competition for having the waggiest tail as I am such a happy dog and really wanted a rosette to display at home. I love both humans and dogs equally and am happiest in big groups. I am however a very quiet dog, so you will rarely hear me bark.

The Bike Shed happily allows me and my dog friends inside the restaurant and also outside on the terrace. All the staff love it when I visit and always come over to greet me, give me  lots of cuddles and play. I also get a big bowl of water on arrival.

I love visiting, as the Bike Shed is so unique and I get to see all the bikers come in on their motorbikes to park up which keeps me entertained.  There is also a motorbike shop where I can explore.

Any top tips for the venue?

Pop in for lunch on a nice sunny day and enjoy the uniqueness of this place.

(We agree Rusty, The Bike Shed is one of Belinha’s top tips too).
