Dogs Strut Their Stuff At Paw Pageant 2014

Paw Pageant returns to Old Spitalfields Market.

Paw Pageant returns to Old Spitalfields Market

Dogs from across London are invited to strut their stuff on the cat dog walk at Old Spitalfields Market this bank holiday, in aid of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

The Paw Pageant sees dogs take to the stage wearing outfits by well-known canine designer (we don’t remember being given that as a career option at school) Lilly Shahravesh of LoveMyDog. Their owners will parade alongside them in the latest designs from the likes of Oliver Bonas, Jigsaw and Hackett.

Owners have a choice of four categories into which they can enter their pets: Dog-el-ganger, Dog’s got Talent, Dressed up to the Canines and Paw-fection. Looks like the organisers love a pun as much as Londonist does.

Other canine-centric activities are going on throughout the afternoon. Battersea Dogs Home will microchip dogs for free, and Las Iguanas will serve up a special ice cream for dogs. Too far? Perhaps.

Want to enter your dog? It’s £8 if you register in advance, or £10 on the day. All money raised goes to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

Paw Pageant takes place at Old Spitalfields Market on 25 August, 1pm-3pm.
