This weekend was one of the busiest for the dogs of London, with over 15 dog events to choose from in town. Having missed last year’s edition, on Saturday it was time to head over to the Belgravia Dog Show and see what it was all about.
Belgravia Dog Show
A large tent with green carpet and a competition ring, a doggie dance floor, stalls, a curated the lawn outside with barbeque, drinks and more stalls, all hidden in the heart of the beautiful Belgrave Square.
Among the stalls, there were luxury dog accessories’ brand Teddy Maximus, Hugo & Celine’s Swedish doggie ice cream, By Benji biltong dog treats, Bridget Davey photography, and many more. The Dogs Trust was also present with their stalls and they had some very cute photos of dogs looking for a forever home. Finally, we met Anneka Svenska, who there interviewing rescue dogs for her programme. Apart the barbeque and drinks stalls, a very appreciated thing was the complimentary ice cream offered by Chestertons!
Fun dog show and doggie disco
The Belgravia Dog Show was sponsored by estate agency Chestertons and in aid of the Dogs Trust. Dog owners could choose among six great fun dog show categories: dog with the waggiest tail, dog with the prettiest eyes, best on lead & heels, dog that looks most like his/her owner, best dancing dog and cutest puppy.
The winners of the “dog that looks most like his/her owner” category were a lady and (I believe) her tiny black Toy Poodle: she had dressed up in black with a black wig and had fake black curly fur on all edges. For once, it was not the dog to be dressed up, but the other way around, and this was much appreciated and rewarded by the jury.
I finally got to meet the most smiley dog of London: Freddie (on Instagram @freddieposingcockapoo), as well as Miss Darcy and George from Miss Darcy’s Adventures, with their owner May.
There were some doggie disco sessions in between classes and at the end of the show there was a guy with his little dog improvising a super professional dog dance (the video on our Facebook page). Also May took George and Darcy for a dance and they were also fantastic!
