Harrods Pet Kingdom

Remember how I promised you ‘a whole other post’ on Harrods Pet Kingdom? Well here it is! When I was originally planning my visit to London I knew there was no way I could visit merry old England without a stop by their famous pet centre.Β To say the Pet Kingdom is the pet goods area of the iconic British department store is a complete understatement. Here’s the Pretty Fluffy low-down:

Amazing Displays
Forget the famous window displays out the front, the Pet Kingdom displays showcase the very best pet products the UK has to offer and are a visual feast at the same time. When I visited they were all set up for the Jubilee and the floor was awash with a sea of red, white and blue.

Boutique Brands
Unlike many other department stores, which focus on large quantities of product from a small amount of retailers, boutique labels pop up throughout the kingdom, with fashionable retailers – such a Mungo and Maud – setting up permanent residence. Got a favourite leash, toy or bed you’re looking for? You’ll find it here.

Pet Fashion
Yes in Harrods Pet Kingdom there is a room for dog beds, a room (actually multiple rooms) for toys, and a room for bowls – but possibly the most awe inspiring room is the Pet Fashion room. Never before have I seen so many doggie outfits collected together in one place. From everyday wear, to winter coats, dress up costumes and footwear – every possible fashion need was covered. I swear this room has me this close to purchasing my first ever costume for Soda, I was so impressed! (Luckily my husband was there to remind me Soda does not appreciate costumes and any purchase would almost certainly wind up ripped to shreds before I could say ‘jet lag’.)

Harrods Product Line
This one is especially for the tourists, but what better way to remember your trip to the UK than with a Harrods’ branded doggie sweater, bed or bowl?

Canine Cookie Company
With a permanent bakery frontage within the store, the Canine Cookie Company has doggie cupcakes, cookies, treats and even ‘Pup-Corn’ on display. Personalised orders are welcome and the display cabinet is so good, you’d think it should be sent down to join the others in the famous Harrods Food Hall. To check out their range visit the Canine Cookie Company.

The Pet Store
This was the most interesting part of my visit. Back in the day, Harrods was known for selling all sorts of wild animals – from lions to panthers. Thankfully those days are behind them, however they do still sell a small amount of dogs and small animals there. While, in my personal opinion, I still feel pets should not be sold in stores, I have to say I was impressed the the current system Harrods has. Puppies in residence are walked throughout London’s many parks, trained and cared for by vetinerary nurses on staff, and are on display for strictly limited time periods. I actually met two pups on one of their many daily walks around the store. Secondly, to purchase a dog a prospective owner has to submit to an interview to determine their suitability to the specific dog, as well as having to prove their living situation can happily accommodate the pet in question. Now while rescues will have my heart any day of the week, this process really made me think. If these rules were implemented in every pet store, the world of animals would surely benefit.

The Pet Spa
The jewel in the Harrods Pet Kingdom! Fancy getting your dog washed, clipped, brushed, pampered and shined alongside the finest pooches in London? This is where to take them. With a clear, glass viewing display, dog owners and shoppers alike can see the talented staff at work making each and every dog pretty and fluffy! An inside tip is to look out for the groomers’ own dogs who are lucky enough to join their owners at work most days, becoming mini celebrities in their own right.

  1. Wow! So jealous until I think about how much money I’m saving because I can’t go to Harrods! Love your pictures by the way.

    This is my most favourite pet store in the entire world! Everytime we go to London, I make sure we stop in for a visit as there’s always something new and exciting. Last time I was there I picked up Harrods collars and matching leads for all my pooches πŸ™‚

    I love all your photos – they brought back wonderful memories of my shopping splurges there! I hope you went crazy and bought up big!

    Wow, this is crazy, wish I could shop there!

  5. Hee hee. We went to the Pet Kingdom too when we visited London a year ago. So awesome! I had wanted to see the spa and Mungo and Maud products too. Funnily enough, just half an hour ago I was reviewing my post that I wrote about it. Will have to publish soon. So glad you had a wonderful time! Look forward to hearing more about your adventures!

  6. WOW, it’s been a while since I’ve been to London but the next time I go, I’ll cut my time in half at Vivienne Westwood and head on over to Harrods Pet Kingdom! Great photographs and breakdown of the store! Mamma Biscuit and I would have a field day in this place! Sighhhhh, I’m such a sucker for anything dog related with a union jack logo on it!

    OMG! I haven’t been to London in 10 years and now, I most definitely want to go back. Not like I didn’t want to before. I am fortunate enough to have a dog that loves to dress up, so I would need to save some serious cash for a trip to this store. πŸ™‚

    I do spend a small fortune on my cats and wanted something special. I drove to Harrods from Bury St Edmunds specificaly to purchase 3 cat collars. When I asked an assistant for the cat accessories they directed me to a small corner with a very disappointing display of items that I could get at my local Pets @ Home. I loved the pet fashion ‘Harrods’ green and gold items and felt quite sad that the effort had only been given to dogs especially the collars. Unfortunately even a small size dog collar is too wide for a cat Please could someone tell me if they are going to do the same for cats. If so I’ll have 3 please. Thank you

    Hello,

    What a nice website you have.
    We are Sphynx cat breeders in Brighton East Sussex. I am looking for clothes suitable for my own Sphynx and I am looking for something I can give to new Sphynx owners who buy our kittens, I was thinking of a shirt/coat that I can put in their new Sphynx kitten packs.

    Any information or ideas would be much appreciated. If you do have anything suitable, can I buy on line or do I need to come up to the store?

    Kind regards

    Neil Hart

    Dear All,
    You may have received a letter from Harrods. It informs us that the Pet Kingdom on the 4th Floor at Harrods will cease to trade….to make way for women’s wear. Everything will have gone by January 2014. Harrods has had a long and important relationship with pets. The pet shop was a “must view”. My mother in law owned a standard poodle. Harrods allowed her, the poodle, to go alone every morning to pick up the paper and a pint of milk. Harrods as a family store has always loved and supported pets, a vital part of our homes. Outraged!!!!

    The Harrods Pet Department is sadly closing down. It was one of my stops when I visited London to get gifts for my babies. I am so sad its not going to be there anymore. I also love PetLondon who is located nearby in Marylebone they have a really good selection of dog clothing and other really cute stuff

  18. […] pampering’, boutique pet fashion brands and a ‘pet spa’ some years ago. This post from a blog called Pretty Fluffy can give you all the low down – if you think you can stand […]

  19. I worked for two years in the Pet Shop,or the Zoo as it was known then.We sold all sorts of animals in those days.I later did my Veterinary Nursing exam and the experience I gained working with the different animals in Harrods proved invaluable. Such a pity it has gone but as with all things times change.

  20. Colin staples says:

    Shame that it’s closing, it was great but recently I have been getting all my dog clothes online, as long as you measure your dog properly then it’s really easy, I normally shop at Paws couture, they have fab dog coats at really reasonable prices. http://pawscouture.co.uk/sale.html
