Dog lovers will want to go for walkies to Duke of York Square this September — as it hosts Chelsea Dog Day.

The free event, near Sloane Square, features a dog-themed market with over 20 stalls, run by the likes of canine treat specialists The Four Legged Foodies and local blogger Darcy & George’s Adventures.

Elsewhere, there are behaviourist talks from Chelsea Canines, a pop-up 'scent den' (designed to boost stimulation in dogs with interesting sights and smells) from Wagworks, plus 'pawtrait' artists — which we presume means you can commission an artwork of your beloved pet. We're also promised "a host of live doggy entertainment hosted by various retailers, hotels and restaurants" — details on this forthcoming.

The event is being held in support of the charity Pets As Therapy.
