Definition of a perfect day: exploring your favourite city with your best friend by your side.

But as many of us pet parents and dog lovers are all too aware, it’s not exactly easy to know which places will welcome our four-legged friends.

So until the day our utopian vision of 100% dog-friendly cities around the world is realised, we have the very next-best thing: Dog-Friendly City Guides by Four&Sons.

We have been huge fans of dog-dedicated magazine Four&Sons for years. Told through a stunning series of contemporary and documentary-style photography, Four&Sons magazines explore the stories of dogs and humans within the worlds of art, photography, music, culture and design. 

As one of our favourite dog mags, we’re sure you could imagine our excitement upon the release of Dog-Friendly New York & London. Just like the magazine, both dog-friendly city guides feature engaging photography, modern illustrations, and interviews with notable dog people you may know, sharing their insider intel about life in the city they love, with the pup they love just that little bit more.

From dog-friendly cafes in New York, to dog hotels in London

Each guide covers every kind of adventure you could take with your pup, with sections on ‘Walk’, ‘Stay’, ‘Eat’, ‘Look’, and ‘Away’ – featuring everything from art galleries, bookstores and green spaces (did you know London is home to over 3,000 parks?) to architectural marvels, cafés for dogs and pet-friendly hotels – even dog-friendly destinations just beyond the city limits, for those seeking an escape to nature with their fur baby in tow.

Personally, our favourite section of the Dog-Friendly New York & London city guides are the guided walks. Highlighting different neighbourhoods of each city, from artsy districts to downtown delights, these curated tours feature an illustrated map and step-by-step list of recommended places to visit, offering exciting ways for both you and your pup to enjoy the city you love, whether you’re a resident or visitor.

And what’s really impressive about each guide? While being jam-packed with wonderful dog-friendly travel tips and thoughtful imagery, what we really love is the compact travel size of each book (not to mention the illustrated hardcovers are just beautiful quality too – a far cry from those flimsy travel maps that always end up scrunched up in a sad, crumpled mess!) Simply pop it in your bag alongside your pup’s treats and poop bags – and you’re ready for your next big adventure. 

Marta Roca, Founder and Creative Director of Four&Sons, refers to Dog-Friendly London & New York as a ‘passion project’ – and this is all too evident at the turn of every page, each considered detail a homage to the myriad ways in which dogs enhance our lives just by being by our side. 

So if you’re just as passionate about exploring the city with your best friend, Dog-Friendly London & New York are the must-have travel guides you need for the perfect day with your perfect companion.
