Since the start of the pandemic, London has seen the highest spike in dog ownership in the country, our beloved pooches often being a valuable source of comfort during times of isolation. Westminster City Council has long been committed to improving animal welfare and we’re currently the only local authority in the country to hold four awards from the RSPCA PawPrint Awards, recognising organisations that go above and beyond for the welfare of animals. For Silver Sunday this year, in partnership with The Mayhew Centre and Platinum Natural Pet Food, we thought it only right that we celebrate our canine companions with an Animal Welfare and Dog Show.
From 10am to 3pm on Sunday 3 October at Paddington Recreation Ground, there will be advice stalls, free microchipping, a dog ability show by Whirlwind Agility and prizes including ‘pawtraits’ by professional doggy photographer, Gruff Pawtraits, to be won in the following categories:
• Waggiest Tail
• Most Handsome Dog
• Best Yearling (12 to 24 months)
• Best Veteran (9 years and over)
• Best 6 legs (dog and owner)
• Dog the Judge Would Most Like to Take Home!
