3. The Dogvine
The Dogvine was created by Teresa Keohane after she moved to London with her Brazilian rescue dogs and found that she was struggling to find local dog knowledge, such as which restaurants were pet-friendly and dog-friendly activities in the city. Teresa quickly discovered that the best place to find this information was in the park from other dog owners so she started The Dogvine to bring all this knowledge into one place. The Dogvine features all the information a London dog needs to know and even has a London Dog events calendar, making it the ‘Timeout for London Dogs’!

Self-admitted ‘Crazy Dog Lady’ Rachel Spencer blogs with her best bud Patch (a terrier: soulful brown eyes, floppy ears), but The Paw Post Pet Blog isn’t just about dogs – Rachel and Patch also write about cats and rabbits on occasion. Checking out new places to go, trying out gadgets, and sharing inspirational stories about people who are making a difference in the lives of animals (Canine Hope, Medical Detection Dogs, and StreetVet, to name a few) make up a lot of the content here, so Rachel and Patch are busy blogging buds.
Maya, Lucy, and Sally Hay are the cocker spaniels plus person behind this dog blog. The archive goes back to November 2016, so you can flick back through Maya and Lucy’s reviews of dog hotels, trips out, luxury handmade beaded dog collars and Laura Ashley prints. It’s not all fancy stuff and luxury, however – blogger Sally makes sure to feature the important basics of being a human friend to dogs. Advice on how to handle fireworks night and keeping safe while open water paddling is also covered, so your pooches can stay safe and happy while luxuriating in the finer things.
Monty Dogge – first name ‘Monty’, last name ‘Dogge’ – is a huge white and black Newfoundland fella living with his humans and fellow dog fam in a place called Wigwam. Monty is a very busy dog, and blogs about his volunteer work with schools and nursery homes as well as fundraising efforts for charities. He’s also a published author, having penned children’s story ‘I’m Not a Pandacow’ . Monty has big paws though, so his human MT Sanders probably helps out with a lot of the typing, we bet.
