george & friends day care for dogs in Hackney

Our location


George & friends is located in the heart of Hackney. Unlike other day care centres, which are based on the outer edges of London, we want to be as close to you as possible thereby minimising the amount of time spent on the road and maximising the time the dogs spend exercising & interacting with each other.

Hackney Downs Studios, where we are based, has transformed a disused industrial estate into a creative community hub that offers retail units, studio spaces and co-working space. We moved in May 2018 and feel very lucky to be part of such an exciting community.

We are currently based in Arch A, a 40m2 converted railway arch which is just off Downs Rd. We have created an environment that is perfect for dogs to feel safe, comfortable & relaxed in without the need to use crates or cages.


Most of our walks take place in Hackney Downs, which is one of the major green spaces in Hackney. It’s the perfect place for the dogs to exercise and play in as it’s well-kept & relatively quiet! We also take trips to Hackney Marshes, Abney Park Cemetery, Clissold Park, Finsbury Park & Hampstead Heath.
