Little Dog London is a directory of dog-friendly businesses across London, selected based on the fact that the businesses themselves claim to be dog-friendly on their own website or social media pages or because they have been visited by and recommended by fellow dog owners.
Little Dog London does not accept any responsibility for the behaviour of any dog visiting any of the businesses listed, the responsibility for each dog lies entirely with the owner or the guardian of said animal.
It is entirely at the discretion of the business owner as to whether they allow dogs. As stated on the Kennel Club website:
"There is a misconception in the UK that dogs are not allowed in premises where food is served, such as restaurants and cafes. This is not the case: it is only food preparation areas that are out of bounds, not areas where food is served and sold. The only legal obligation on the owner of such a place is to make sure there is no risk of contamination and that all food preparation areas are up to specified hygiene standards, as set out in EU Regulation (EC) 852/2004, Annex II, applied in the UK by the Food Hygiene Regulations 2006."
To avoid embarrassment we always advise you to call ahead and check with the business yourself to ensure that your dog will be welcome.
