The London Dog House was founded in November 2017 by Charles Woodward. Charles has been an avid animal lover since he was a small boy, growing up in Greenwich, south east London with all kinds of pets. At the age of 15 he carried out work experience in a vet practice and this was the true start to his journey into working with animals.
After studying Photography at University and working on many projects involving dogs, Charles became a dog walker for London Doggies Daycare in Hackney, London in August 2015. This was the starting point to opening The London Dog House, after 6 months working in London Doggies. Charles became the Manager of the Daycare as well as managing Molly and George Grooming Salon. After taking control of both business, Charles felt that the next journey he was to take, would be to open The London Dog House.
The main idea of the The London Dog House is to offer natural, healthy, high meat content food and treats to our daycare and grooming clients, expanding the shop to local residents and the rest of the UK via our website and store. Charles is also an Pro-Raw diet feeder to his 10 year old Yorkshire terrier, Popsy, who you will often find sitting in the chair behind the desk. This meant that we had to stock Raw food within the store, due to its health benefits when fed to dogs.
Also stocking local UK Dog brands such as Hiro + Wolf, Wildwash Grooming Products and Four Legged Fancies. The London Dog House feels strongly about supporting small UK Businesses.
This is only the beginning for The London Dog House, we look forward to what the future holds for us, and our pets, for a long, happy & healthy future.
