There's a festival coming to London and it's all about dogs

STOCK IMAGE Dogs have a habit of winning hearts, but scientists say they can also help keep them healthy. New research suggests that owning a pet may help maintain cardiovascular health, especially if that pet is a dog. Using data from the Kardiozive Brno 2030 study, the research examined the association of pet ownership - specifically dog ownership - with cardiovascular disease risk factors and cardiovascular health.

With the recent departure of summer, there’s almost nothing left to smile about. Luckily, canines – our moist-nosed huggers, our fuzz butts, our pooches – are here year-round, you ingrate!

To celebrate all things canine, the Doggo Style Market is taking place on Sunday 29 September. Having kicked off just last year, London’s go-to indoor dog market returns with accessories, themed photo-ops, beer for dogs and treats from Oonalfie, Florence & Ottie, and The Rockster. There will even be gourmet burgers and ice-cream for your dog from Hugo & Celine and designer collars to show your dog just how ‘mutts’ you are about them.

Bring your dogs, of course, but pets of all kind are welcome.

The theme this time is dogs with jobs (which also happens to be the name of a Metro.co.uk series) so expect lots of very good doggos.

It will also be a Sunday of style for the humans. The bar will serving up beverages and there will be numerous food stalls, so you aren’t a drooling mess while watching your pets feast.

Don’t Let Your Dog Ride in the Back of Your Truck Unrestrained. An estimated 100,000 dogs die each year from riding in pickup beds each year, and that doesn’t take into account all of the injuries seen each year. Dogs in pickup beds are also at risk of being hit with debris that can cause injuries.

Taking place at Tower Bridge Court, the event will run from 12pm-5pm. Tickets are £4 in advance or £5 on the door. Children under 12 get in free. The proceeds all go to dog rescue and rehoming charity All Dogs Matter. According to Doggo Style, they were able to raise £2,090 for the charity during their Christmas market last year.
