Our mission at PAAW House is for the UK to be the most pet-friendly place on the planet and this is a mission shared by our friend, Russell Hunt at Pets Lets. The UK is, a very pet-friendly nation; however, we are seriously lagging behind with the legalisation that allows people to keep pets in specific accommodations. Russell at Pets Lets agrees, and has been doing his bit to help people find long and short-term pet-friendly lets in London. We recently met him to find out more about his business. © Pets Lets “The number of people looking for pet-friendly properties has increased throughout my years as
Vinnie and his crew love making new friends and since we started working on PAAW House we have made many. One of our favourite places is Instagram where we met a great chap called Barry. Celebrity doesn’t faze Vin, but it’s always a plus when you meet a nice guy who also happens to be famous, and Barry is one of those guys. He recently invited us to his party in London to celebrate getting his blue tick on Instagram (more about that later), and we had a good chat with him and his humans. This is what he had to tell us. So, let’s
We recently met Lucy from You and the Dog to find out all about her current project in aid of the Wild at Heart Foundation. We love her work and can’t wait to have a PAAW dog photoshoot. We’d love to hear about Dogs and Abba Lucy; " When I think of some of the things that make me smile, dogs and Dancing Queen are most definitely at the top of my list. Combining these two subjects may seem a slightly bizarre pastime, but capturing a dog sitting behind a Singer sewing machine while listening to ‘As Good as New’ has become just another regular
Animal welfare and respect for our environment go hand in hand that’s an absolute certainty. In addition, lots of our members and friends enjoy taking pictures of their pets. Once we made this simple and obvious connection it was a short step to setting up PAAWs for our Environment Facebook Group. Our very own take on dog Plalking (that’s picking up litter while walking the dog) All we ask of the members of our group is to pick up at least two pieces of rubbish on their daily walks with their pets. It couldn’t be simpler, just pick the items up using a
Burly is another new friend I met at a party recently, a top guy who moves in celebrity circles, and I love his stories! Although Burly's even smaller than me, when he walks in the room he sure knows how to make a pup feel underdressed. Burly Bear: Hello, I'm Burly Bear, I am an eight-month-old pedigree Pomeranian, I live in Borough and have two dads. I was born in Scotby, Carlisle and I'm a big ball of fluff. I love playing with children and other dogs at every opportunity. I'm very fortunate as I get spoilt with all the beautiful clothes, collars, leads and toys. My favourite
If you have been following our journey over recent months, you know that we are all about the power of community. The PAAW House journey started in many ways with the support of our local community; and one such supporter was London City Runners. They are a local club with a pet-friendly clubhouse and a passion for people. We discovered the clubhouse by chance one day while out walking and received a warm welcome with Vinnie, who is now an honouree member despite never running any further than his food bowl. Plus, they also make great coffee! © London City Runners We have taken lots of inspiration from
At Drake & Morgan, every hour is happy hour if you are a well-behaved pup. With twenty-three fabulous venues across the UK, all of which are dog friendly, what are you waiting for? They even have a dedicated drinks menu for the dogs, so whether your pups favourite tipple is a Pawsecco or even a Bottom Sniffer then this is the place for you. © Drake & Morgan The opportunity to collaborate with such a great company came about from a chance encounter with Jillian McLean founder of Drake & Morgan on a daily dog walk. A dog lover herself she couldn’t help a nod
When Vinnie came bounding into our lives seven years ago, little did we know that in addition to all the love and joy he would bring us as a family, he would also be instrumental in helping us make many new friends and connections. So, it came as no surprise when my husband returned home from the park recently, and declared that Vinnie should start a new career as a dating doctor, as he gets so much positive attention from everyone whilst out walking. Vinnie-the-love-dog! I don’t doubt that this would work, especially as I’ve just read an article about the growth of a phenomenon known as “dogfishing”. Apart from meeting
With the rise of celebrity pets, it should come as no surprise that animals, just like their human counterparts, have talent agents too. At Urban Paws that’s what we do. Over the past few years, we’ve seen all kinds of animals become famous; Grumpy Cat, Triphazard and Pudsey who featured on Britain’s Got Talent, A Street Cat Named Bob, the John Lewis trampolining boxer dog, the list goes on! What’s interesting is that every single animal has something special; whether it’s their talent, comedy genius, a unique look or simply their cute factor. Animals are used in advertising more than ever before simply because audiences get a higher emotional
