The Cabbages & Frocks Dog Day Afternoon is back on the 11th May in Marylebone, with a fantastic doggie day out that is guaranteed to be a fun-filled for all the family.
There is much to do on the day, starting at 11am with ‘Doga’ – a yoga class for dogs and their owners, run by Mahny Djahanguiri and Robbie, her seven-year-old Maltese Terrier. All dogs large or small are welcome to the free session, just make sure you wear suitable clothing and don’t forget to bring your yoga mat and a sense of humour!
At 12 and 2pm, one of the highlights of the day will be the Good Boy Show headed by Dima and his dancing partners. Dima has appeared on Britain’s Got Talent and ITV’s The Secret life of Dogs. While watching one of the displays, enjoy delicious refreshments including fresh vegan salads, Argentinian steak sandwiches by El Faryon, and various sweet treats including cheesecake – ideal with a cappuccino.
