London Dog Week will kick start its celebration with a Fur-Mama’s Day to be held on Sunday 24th March at M Restaurant, Victoria.
Gemma Oaten is best known for her role as Rachel Breckle in ITV Yorkshire’s Emmerdale.
“London is viewed as one of the loneliest cities in the world, yet dogs are natural people magnets and if we can use their ability to connect people across the capital, then we think it’s a great way for people to forge friendships. I really believe that dogs are instrumental in making London less lonely” – LDW Co-founder, Aneka Johnson
Fur-Mamma’s (and Fur-Dads) can come and celebrate being a Fur-Parent at the first ever London Dog Week. This is no ordinary lunch, TV actress Gemma Oaten will be presenting on the day and there will be giveaways, special guests, lots of interactive activities and features around the venue for guests, their Fur-kid, friends and family to enjoy. Fur-parenting is a chance to encourage the benefits of owning a dog, including improving mental health and more positive human interaction within a family setting.
The @puppyclubworld will also be part of the family celebrations encouraging two legged children to take part in a Doggie Cuddle and Colour Club. They will be able to have cuddles with doggies and learn more about The Puppy Club House App. There will be activity packs, free mini-trading cards and a special menu for kiddies available from the award-winning chefs at M Restaurant.
Another popular event selling fast is the London Dog Week Fashion Brunch also at M Restaurant. The first sitting has already sold out for Saturday 30th March 2019 with tickets selling fast for the second sitting. The restaurant will set the stage for diners to experience the funkiest Fashion Dog Walk in Europe. London’s sassiest dogs from 28 of the UK’s biggest influencers will walk the M runway, strutting designs from talented independent brands. There will also be a doggie art sale at the restaurant as a collection of our furry friends will be exhibited and for sale from June Schneider of Schneider Art.
“I know both myself and Aneka have both gone through mental and physical health challenges and our dogs have really helped us through it. Sharing the power of how dogs are therapeutic and can help you keep a healthy frame of mind, alleviate stress and anxiety in addition to uniting its owner with the local community, is the message we want to spread throughout London” – LDW Co-founder, Lois Mallet Walker
