Take Your Pooch Christmas Shopping

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

Online is all well and good but there's nothing like a good old-fashioned bit of shopping at Christmas time. You get to see all the pretty decorations, get a whiff of those festive smells and listen to some Christmas tunes.

And with these great stores all being dog friendly, you can even take pooch along with you.

Let's get our priorities straight and start by getting all our four legged friends what they wish for this Christmas at Dog and Groom.

This fabulous independent boutique and groomers now has 2 locations in South West London where you can get your paws on some great toys, clothing, beds and anything else you might need.

If treats are what you'd rather have in your stocking, then fear not as Dog & Groom have a great selection to suit all pooches, including raw.

Why not pop along to their free Christmas Event on December 2nd to check out the goods and take advantage of some special offers.

Pooches can join their humans for a whole day of retail therapy at Southside Shopping Centre in Wandsworth where four legged visitors are welcome throughout.

You can also grab coffee at Black Sheep Coffee and lunch at Brewdog.

Read our blog about Southside Shopping Centre for full details of all dog friendly shops within the centre.

All John Lewis stores in the UK now allow doggies to accompany them whilst shopping (no size restrictions but we must be kept on a lead and carried on escalators).

I got lots of attention as I was the only dog in there but I had to be carried in the busier parts of the store as human was worried I might get stepped on.

The Christmas Department even has a selection of gifts for dogs so don't forget to give your list to your human.

Just off Oxford Circus, you will find one of London's most iconic shops. Liberty has been here since 1875 and since 2020 has been welcoming Four Legged shoppers of all sizes.
(Once again on lead at all times).

We advise pooches be on their best behaviour when in Liberty as they sell some very expensive stuff. The human said I would lose all future pocket money if I damaged anything in there!

Liberty is situated at one end of Carnaby Street which always has some colourful decorations to look at.

Most of the shops sell clothes for humans and most of them are quite happy for pooches to pop in.

Everyone loves a book for Christmas don't they? All Waterstones stores and most independent bookshops in London welcome pooches, even though we can't read!

Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross has a fabulous selection of independent shops where dogs are always welcome. Check out Wolf and Badger and Earl of East for perfect Christmas gifts.

It's also a great spot to get some festive photos.

Our human loves smellies (probably why she loves us) for Christmas so we will be filling her stocking with gifts from Kiehl's as they love doggies to visit them. They even sell a range of toiletries for us!

Anthropologie have a great selection of gifts from homewares, clothes and stocking fillers. All size dogs are welcome in all their stores.
