Introducing the world's first city tour bus for dogs!

The world's first city tour bus for dogs is giving pet owners paws for celebration (sorry).

London has a tour bus for everyone - from typical open-top sightseeing tours to afternoon tea and cake buses. But, until now, there's never been one catering for canines.

Created by MORE TH>N, the bus tour invites owners and their dogs to experience a whistle-stop sightseeing experience of London like no other.

The bus route sees dogs taken to some of London's best parks and city centre dog walking spots, including Hyde Park, Kensington Palace Gardens and Green Park.

Along the way, live onboard commentary for you, the owner, lifts the lid on London's rich canine history, including the ministerial dogs of Downing Street, the many corgis that have shared Buckingham Palace with the Queen and the location of London's only dog cemetery.

The route itself centres on a number of London's most scenic dog-walking hotspots. You'll hop off at Hyde Park and Green Park, and take your pooch for a stroll, armed with a handy leaflet mapping dog-friendly pubs, bars and restaurants in the area.

Over the course of the hour-long route, the customised London Routemaster, aptly numbered the K9, will also drive past an array of points of interest with a connection to dogs in the city, with expert insight provided throughout by the onboard commentator.

As the bus whistles past Buckingham Palace you might hear: "Queen Elizabeth II has owned more than 30 corgis during her reign and currently has one named Willow. Three of her Corgis even made an appearance when James Bond (portrayed by Daniel Craig) arrived at Buckingham Palace to escort the Queen to London 2012 opening ceremony."

The bus tour has been created by MORE TH>N DOGGYSSENTI>LS to launch its new service – a total pet care and protection offering that provides all the essential items for a happy and healthy dog, delivered direct to your door each month. Membership comes with pet insurance from MORE TH>N and an innovative activity monitor that tracks a dog's exercise levels and activity.

To celebrate the launch, every dog owner joining the bus tour will be gifted a travel-size version of the MORE TH>N DOGGYSSENTI>LS box, containing treats and dog walking balls.
