Interact with cute dogs without spending a penny.Soon corgis will be everywhere as we near the Jubilee weekend, in celebration of the Queen. Her Majesty herself has owned corgis since she was 18 and refers to them as being part of the ‘family’. Now an interactive experience celebrating this idea is coming to London ’s Leadenhall Market. Royalists and dog fans can pose for pictures with real corgis in a pop-up photo studio.
As well as a corgi, the booth will come with royal-themed costume pieces – such as tiaras – so you can dress up and feel as regal as the dogs taking part.
This will be set to a quintessentially British backdrop, including a cosy and plush floral sofa to sit on next to your furry friend. There’s no need to book and it’s free for anyone to do on June 1, 12-6pm in the Victorian food and drink market.As well as the ‘Corgi Cam’ pop-up, Leadenhall Market will also host walking tours to educate Londoners on the market’s link to the monarchy – which goes back to the 12th century.
Keep Them Active. Energy varies between breeds, says Dr. Becker. “Greyhounds, Labs, Golden Retrievers, Jack Russell Terriers, Border Collies, and other active breeds have unfathomable energy.” He continues, “wolves spend 80% of their time awake, moving. With cats, there’s not such an exercise requirement,” but providing outlets for play at home is still crucial. For both cats and dogs he recommends food-dispensing that “recreates the hunt,” and puzzle feeders that engage your pet’s “body and mind.”
The market’s alleyways lined by restaurants, shops and bars will get the Jubilee update too, with a royal purple colour scheme and flowers.
Make Training More Fun by Switching Up The Rewards. Instead of just giving praise for a new trick add some yummy treats or a game of tug as the reward. By changing the rules & rewards you’re keeping training sessions more fun & exciting for both you & your dog.
Royalists will be able to make a day of it, with fun photo opportunities and good social spots.
