Another weekend, another dog show…next up is the Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents Dog Show also organised by All Dogs Matter. The dog show is part of the Hampstead Garden Suburb Summer Fun Day on Central Square NW11 (next to St Judes Church) so why not get a head start on National Picnic Week and bring a picnic to make a day of it!

Do you think your pooch could have the waggiest tail in Wimbledon? If so then the Waggy Wimbledon dog show could be yours for the taking!

To make sure your pup is in with a chance, pre-register here.
Bring Your Dog To Work Day – Friday June 23rd 2017
Bring Your Dog To Work Day is back and for those of us who don’t work in a dog-friendly office this is probably the best day of the working year! Organised by HOWND, the nationwide event on June 23rd will be raising money for two deserving Animal Welfare Charities All Dogs Matter and Animals Asia. So it’s definitely time to give your dog a job and (for a small donation) get them featured in the Bring Your Dog To Work Day Hall of Fame. This year, dogs with a job also have a chance to star in the official Bring Your Dog To Work Day movie…all you need to do is download the ‘Seenit Capture’ app for free and join the project called BYD2017. You can then upload a video of your dog at work which will be used in the official event movie, how cool is that!
