Top 5 Dog Friendly Places to Visit | Exmouth Market

Exmouth market is a beautiful example of ‘London village life’. This unique area, which is full of independent shops, cafes and restaurants is located between Islington and the City and makes for the perfect afternoon out with the dog.

Exmouth Street Food Market
 

Exmouth Market offers a daily street food market from 12-3pm with Thursday and Friday being the busiest days. This eclectic market of up to 20 artisan food stalls offers an alternative to the average lunch spot . After grabbing some food you can head to Spa Fields Pars to enjoy your lunch while the dog has a run around. The park is small but perfect for a quick stop, plus it has a table tennis table for sunnier days.

Pizza Pilgrims

 If the weather is not one your side then you can head to Pizza Pilgrims to enjoy some of their delicious slow proved Neapolitan Pizza. Dogs are welcome and we are massive fans of their Aubergine parmigiana pizza and if you still have room their Nutella Pizza Ring it's the ultimate in indulgence treats.

Marby & Elm

 We always love to check out and support other independent stores whenever we can and we are big fans of Marby & Elm when it comes to finding the perfect greeting card (we always stock up on them whenever we are there!). The letterpress stationery and design shop is beautiful and all their products are designed in the shop.

Botanique Workshop

 We couldn’t pop to Exmouth market and not pop in and see our friends (along with shop dog Goose) at Botanique Workshop. We featured their Stoke Newington store in our previous post but their space on Exmouth market was their original store and holds the most amazing array of beautifully sourced gifts, flowers and plants.

Gail's Bakery
 
 
Now we normally only feature 5 places to visit but we couldn’t go without telling you about the amazing treats at Gail’s Artisan Bakery. Your not allowed inside with dogs, however they do have an outdoor seating area and all their drinks and pastries can be taken away. Their hot chocolate (which also comes in a vegan option) is out of this world and at this time of year we can all do with a little treat.

Plus all of their takeaway cups are now lined with BioPBS which is made from sugar cane waste and is biodegradable and compostable at room temperature. Being made from sugar cane waste, edible food crop is not sacrificed in the manufacture process.

Fetch and Follow | Walk and Talk | February

Here at Fetch and Follow a daily dog walk is an integral part of our routine come sun, rain and even snow (and it also happens to be our favourite part!). Having a dog opens a world of opportunity everyday with a new adventure every time you head out together. 

However we understand that at this time of year due to the weather, a post dog walk bath is often in order due to all the wet and muddy fun which has been had. With this in mind we are excited to announce that for our February walk (which will take place on Sunday 17th February) we will be joined by the talented groomer Serena from Lead the Walk , who will be on hand to give some expert tips on how to look after your dog furs during the winter months.

Lasting for one hour, dogs and their owners will get together for an intimate walk with each owner receiving a Fetch and Follow Doggie Bag themed to the walk (this month will include grooming essentials)

The walks are free to attend but spaces are limited so please click HERE to book your space

Walk and Talk Series | January

Last Sunday we held the first in our Walk & Talk series of 2019 and what an amazing day it turned out to be. Not only was the winter sun shining bright for the walk but we were also joined by some fantastic dogs and amazing experts, Hannah from Butternut Box and Ciara from Vet in the City who were both on hand to offer some expert advice on all things related to your dogs diet.

Current research has shown that almost 50% of dogs in the UK are overweight. Overweight dogs can be prone to bone, ligament and joint damage, as well as diabetes, respiratory and heart conditions. However, losing weight and getting in shape has been proven to add almost 2 years onto our dogs lives providing just how important the right diet and exercise is for your four legged friend.
If you’re worried that your dog may be overweight, the scales alone may not be the best way of confirming this. 
Have a look at your dog’s ribs, you should be able to feel them distinctly beneath their coat, covered by a small amount of fat beneath the skin. If you can’t feel them at all, then your dog maybe overweight (This guide can vary from breed to breed)

Ciara has some great pointers on her website on this subject along with tips on how to understand dog food labelling better.

We plan to carry on with the fitness and health theme for our February walk which we will be sharing more details on in the coming week - Stay tuned
