Welcome to Pooches & Prams

Thank you for visiting our page! We are a collective that brings together people with dogs and babies, so if that’s you or someone you know…hello!

Victoria and I (Isobel) met through a mutual friend when we became new mums and were ‘set up’ because we both had dogs and were doing doggy walks with the babies most days. We instantly clicked and from then on we shared our walks with each other and our babies and dogs; Arthur, Sophia, Rupert and Frank. Over a year later and the relationship between us all has only grown stronger.

We all know, it can be hard enough getting out of the house when you’re a new mum, let alone walking the dog, so having someone else there to support and encourage you has been invaluable for us both. It has made walking the dog, part of ours and our babies social life, it’s a chance for all the family to get fresh air, exercise, company and the perfect way to clear those foggy parent heads. That’s why we set up Pooches & Prams, to create a community for parents with both a baby and dog in their life who are interested in meeting or reading about others in the same boat.

Our dogs Frank and Rupert are part of the family, and just because we had babies didn’t mean we wanted to forget about them. We both see them as a best friend for our babies and think that dogs are able to teach a lot to children growing up, ours in particular show patience, empathy, love and affection.

We hope that you find reading our posts or joining us on one of our walks useful and most of all fun. We are by no means ‘experts’ and all of our posts are based on our own experiences over the last year, we’ve learnt on the job like any parent. Yes having a dog and a baby is hard work (especially in the rain) but the rewards are awesome. The relationship between dog and a baby is like no other and we both say that our babies love their dog sibling more than anything else!
