With the August Bank Holiday fast approaching, many families are already planning their perfect day out. But did you know that this Bank Holiday is also National Dog Day? As many dog owners will know, it can be difficult to find venues that are dog friendly, and nobody wants to leave their dog at home, right?
National Dog Day at the Museum of London
For just one day, the Museum of London will be inviting dogs and their families to celebrate all things dog! The museum is also currently celebrating creatures great and small with an exhibition experience called Beasts of London.
On National Dog Day, the museum are putting on a range of special events and activities for you and your dog to enjoy. Although dogs won’t be allowed into the museum or the exhibition itself, there will be a special dog-friendly space for the duration of the event.
Museum of London
Monday 26 August
11am – 4pm
Various events. Ticketed, book in advance.
Activities for all the family
There’ll be a range of fun dog-friendly activities for all the family to enjoy. You’ll be able to bring your doggo along to take part in ‘Wild Life Drawing’ sessions, where you can put your creative skills to the test and sketch your dog’s portrait. You might prefer to unwind with a relaxing Doga session (dog yoga!). Finally, take part in the ‘dog-walk on the wall’, where you’ll walk around the historic Roman wall, uncovering the history of the area.
All three events are ticketed and bookable via their website. In addition to all of the events, there will be some top dog brands at the event. They will no doubt have plenty of treats and other exciting products to show off. To top it all off, you can get a professional pup photograph taken to remind you of the day.

The event is supported by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), who work to protect animals and the place we call home. Recently the organisation supported the successful passage of Finn’s Law, which made injuring a police dog a criminal offence, and Lucy’s Law – which banned third party puppy sales.
The day will raise awareness around protecting our furry friends whilst also being a fun and welcoming space for both two legged and four legged members of the family.
