Welcome to the very first edition of Dog and Leisure

The ultimate mini magazine within House and Leisure for all things canine, in collaboration with CHOMMIES.

House and Leisure & LOOKBOOK Studio

A special thanks to the team at LOOKBOOK, the creative content studio and independent media company that's passionate about print and showcasing, spotlighting and supporting the decor and design industry.


Get to know a little about Pieter Bruwer, co-founder of LOOKBOOK and the publisher of House and Leisure, and Hannah, his Italian Greyhound.

Best walk? Lion’s Head, where we can just run and run and run and soak up the views.

Favourite restaurants? We don’t go to restaurants much, they are way too noisy and busy. Home is where the heart is and where the treats are!

Star signs? I'm a Leo (Hannah), a blazing "fire sign" known for my passion, loyalty and flair for the dramatic. My dad (Pieter) is an Aquarius, and brings a refreshing breeze to my fiery spirit. My other dad is a Scorpio and he add depths and a certain intensity to our cosmic family. It’s like living in a soap opera but with more treats!

"Chommies has always been about the lifestyle that we build with dogs, our shared rituals and indulgences, as well as the like-minded friends we meet along the way.

We are so excited about this collaboration with House and Leisure, with whom we share a great passion for design and Africa. We so hope you enjoy the first edition of Dog and Leisure. From wild adventures and playful recommendations to fresh ideas on how to live in closer deeper connection with our dogs – we promise it will always be fun!"

Founder and Chief Creative Officer, CHOMMIES. Guest editor of Dog and Leisure.
