Eva Thompson created Eva and Amelia’s World to showcase the dog-friendly side of London. Joined by her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Amelia, the pair visit parks, cafes and cupcake shops, as well as featuring the latest in dog products and accessories. We spoke to Eva about Amelia’s personality, why dogs are better than cats and how she works with PRs.
Has your blog changed from when you first started?
Unfortunately yes – I long to visit dog friendly cafes and restaurants just for fun again! Life has gotten so busy I really feel I need to refocus!
What’s the best thing about being a pet blogger?
It’s wonderful that people know your dog! It puts such a smile on my face.
How conscious are you of the animal’s personality as opposed to your own when writing?
Oh I very much consider Amelia and myself one and the same! Our personalities bounce off each other.
What’s better (and WHY) cats or dogs?
Oh… dogs!! Dogs will partake in all activities with you throughout the day. However, I must say, some cats are like that too – ragdolls in particular.
Did you have a pet growing up?
I’ve always had various dogs and horses.
What’s the best top tip you have for pet owners?
Spend as much time as you can with your pets – you’ll see the bad behaviours go away and how they adapt to whatever it is you want to do in the day.
How do you work with PRs and brands?
I love working with PRs! The best feeling is getting the same representative come back to you again and again for more work. It’s a great way to make friends in the industry.
What are the best collaborations you’ve worked on?
For me, the best collaborations aren’t the big pay check campaigns but the moderate ones that continue organically for months and months.
What other blogs do you read?
I must admit I tend to keep up with Instagram a lot more nowadays than I do websites. In general my interests are with human lifestyle blogs.
