Review of Dog-Friendly New York & London by Four&Sons

Your go-to guide for the best places to eat, stay and play with your pup.

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

But as many of us pet parents would tell you, it’s not so easy to know ahead of time which venues open the doors to 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. 

Just like the magazine, Dog-Friendly New York and Dog-Friendly London feature engaging photography, modern illustrations, and interviews with notable dog people you may know. In this exciting new series, they share their insider intel about life in the city they love, with the pup they love just that little bit more.

Read on to see our detailed review of Dog-Friendly New York and Dog-Friendly London.

Four & Sons Dog Friendly New York & London books

From down-town cafes to dog-friendly hotels 

Each dog-friendly travel guide covers every kind of adventure you could take with your pup, with sections on ‘Walk’, ‘Stay’, ‘Eat’, ‘Look’, and ‘Away.’

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 – there’s something for every kind of pet parent.

Guided walking maps

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 you and your pup can enjoy the city you love, whether you’re a resident or visitor.

On-the-go compact travel size

While being jam-packed with dog-friendly travel tips and thoughtful imagery, what we really loved 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 the book in your bag alongside your pup’s treats and poop bags, and you’re ready for your next big city adventure.

It’s all in the details

Marta Roca, Founder and Creative Director of Four&Sons, refers to Dog-Friendly London & New York as a ‘passion project’.

And we’ve got to say, the dedication of Marta and Winnie Au is felt at the turn of every page of these books – each considered detail a homage to the myriad ways in which dogs enhance our lives just by being by our side. 

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