The Passport Booth for Dogs


Dogs / Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

In the UK, we are obsessed with our canine friends. Most dogs are considered to be members of the family and so it isn’t surprising that dog owners like to take their pooches on holiday with them. Pet passports have made it possible to travel abroad with your hound and one in ten owners are considering taking their pets overseas this year.


The Popularity of Pet Passports

Indeed, the number of pet passports being issued is on the rise and has doubled in the last two years. All of those pooches need a photo for their passport and so MoreThan Insurance have set up a canine photobooth in London and is called the Paws-Port!

Next door, owners will discover professional groomers who can pamper their pooch before they are snapped. If only this service was available for people! We wouldn’t all look so completely ghastly in our passport pictures if we could take advantage of a professional make-over.

Useful Reminder

The booth is located at popular dog walking spot, Victoria Park, and it is hoped that the novelty of the concept will remind us that our canine friends need a passport before going overseas.

When dogs have been spruced up by the groomers, they take their seat in the booth which boasts special features to capture the animals’ attention before the shot is taken. The booth has a basket seat which is adjustable to suit any size of pooch and there is a built-in speaker which plays noises to encourage the dogs to look in the right direction. If that doesn’t work, the holes next to the camera hold squeaky balls and raw meat!

Choosing a Holiday Destination

With pet friendly holidays increasing in popularity and 9% of dog owners having already holidayed with their pet in the past, the photobooth is likely to be a big hit. 62% of dog owners have reported that pet-friendly destinations are a draw and that they are more likely to choose a holiday which fulfils the needs of their pet.

A Sign of Things to Come?

The Paws-Port is an interesting and amusing idea. It is only a temporary attraction but you never know what could happen. If the booth is swamped with dogs arriving for walk-in appointments, more of these facilities could appear in the future.

God help anyone trying to get a decent picture of their pet! I could mention a few dogs which would need a little more than a squeaky ball to make then sit still!

  1. A misleading article. Photos are not required. The microchip is the identification simply because most if not all breeds, are almost identical in features so it is pointless. Granted, a crossbreed may be different, even unique but nonetheless, photos are not and never have been a legal requirement.
