Planning the Perfect Pooch Picnic this Jubilee Weekend



What is a ‘Pooch Picnic’?

Dog days out and parties have become incredibly popular in recent years and Raised By Humans believe that it could be the perfect day out for you and your best pooch. You can go out, enjoy the (hopefully) beautiful British summer weather, lounge around, play catch and spend quality time with man’s best friend.


With the Queen’s 70th Jubilee coming up on Friday 3rd June, we should be celebrating with our canines! Why not bring the British street party to the beautiful, lush park and host the celebrations whilst enjoying the nature surrounding you? Here is how you can throw the perfect one with food for the both of you.
