The best pet experiences on Sloane

When exploring Chelsea’s most beloved street, four legs are better than two this National Pet Day

2 April 2024

With National Pet Day celebrations starting on 11 April, Sloane Street is the place to be for best-in-show pet experiences. Expect a canine-appropriate itinerary of Chelsea favourites – from a mooch in the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park (plus boutique pooch experiences) to custom catering at The Cadogan, a Belmond Hotel, there are many ways your furry companion can enjoy their own taste of sophistication on Sloane.

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park’s VIP guest

There’s a reason it’s called ‘Pawfect Stays.’ In collaboration with luxury dog brand Teddy Maximus, fluffy guests checking into the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park will enjoy their own bespoke package. If an unlimited stretch of ‘garden’ (aka the gloriously sprawling park) wasn’t enough, further delights include plush Teddy Maximus accessories, a curated dog-walking map, complimentary Liberty London Dog Grooming facials, and Japanese izakaya dining with a dedicated dog menu at The Aubrey.

TLC time at Love My Human

Nothing feels better than TLC at Love My Human, led by a carefully selected team working to extra-high standards and delivering extra-special experiences. The canine equivalent of a Turkish hammam, book in for luxury grooming, wellness treatments (acupuncture, reiki, massages, etc.), or the full spa experience – with additional treatments including blueberry facials and nail clipping. There’s also the Townhouse café for a quick refresh, with homemade deli treats for both you and your best friend.

Dining at The LaLee

Alongside The Cadogan’s pet-prepped experiences (curated by Pet Pavilion), hotel restaurant The LaLee sets tongues wagging with a doggy-designed menu. Whipped up from the finest, freshest ingredients, the iconic ‘tableside theatre’ extends to four-legged diners with custom dishes that account for breed and personal preferences. Think protein-rich, gluten-free salmon and energy-boosting homemade minced beef – delivered via dedicated butler service for overnight guests.

Small sleepovers At Sloane

At Sloane’s elegant amalgamation of Victorian architecture and French interiors offers a tucked-away pocket of boutique luxury. Pocket-sized companions are also warmly welcomed to bask in the aesthetic refinement – just so long as they can fit into a handbag* (10kg and under) due to the scaled-down space. 

*Check-in does not require Crufts-style proof of a ‘fitting-into-handbag’ trick.

Check into Sloane Place with the Paw Package

Treat them to a well-deserved break from all that cuteness with a stay at Sloane Place. With a welcome treat on arrival, they’ll dream sweet dreams (of running freely through fields, we expect) on a plush cushioned bed waiting for them in the room. Almost-too-delicious-sounding peanut butter bone biscuits, shampoo for muddy paws and plant-based, fully compostable poop bags offer the complete kit for holidaying pups.

Price: £30 one-off fee per stay

Pamper time at Pet Pavilion

Stepping out in Chelsea isn’t complete without a suitably coiffed hairdo. Make sure they look the part with a trip to the King’s Road Pet Pavilion. Expert groomers offer a host of pampering options, including a custom coat cut and styling, fresh breath treatment and eye area brightening, finishing with a spritz of luxury cologne – what else?
