Guess what! Newcastle has their very own Dog Cafe! Yes, seriously! I am not kidding with you! It exists!
If you are wondering what a dog cafe is….well…let me tell you. It’s a cafe which serves coffee and tea and sandwiches, with dogs running around and you get to play with them!
The trend started in Japan, where to my knowledge, people work very long hours and some of them can’t have pets due to lack of time (working) or lack of space in their homes. Therefore, they can visit the dog cafe and play with the dogs and pretend they are their own pets in a way.
Which is similar to my position, I’m not allowed to keep pets in my apartment and it’s not the time for a pet as yet in my life so this is super perfect!
Disclaimer: Be prepared! The following pictures are filled with super cuteness and fluffy dogs. Of course, all animals are happy and well taken care of by their watchful owners and staff!
Meet the six puppies they have in the Dog & Scone!
A cheeky poodle emerges, giving itself a quick shake before approaching us…
On the bench, I spotted one of the staff cradling what I thought was a baby but actually….. a snoring pug!
And everyone else joined in!!
This lady is quite possibly the dog whisperer!
A pug who sleeps and snores with her eyes open! When I arrived at 3 pm, this pug called Laughing has been asleep and still sleeping till I left. She was happy for us to carry her and passed around but I couldn’t resist taking a picture of her snoring with her eyes open! She does look demonic like this though…..
Look at her cute ears!!
I adore Coffee the Corgi! Corgis are one of my favourite dogs, they just look so happy! This little one happens to be exhausted when I came, all he wanted was sleep and I want a cuddle. Compromise and he happily slept on my lap with lots of belly rubs!
This little munchkin is always up for cuddles, I was told to take one of the blankets provided and lay it out on your lap and she will approach you which she did!
It’s such a hard life….or a dog’s life …
Cheeky Monkey! I saw you!!! So nosy haha!
So engrossed playing with the pups that we almost forgot to drink our coffee!
Research does say that playing with dogs helps with depression and anxiety, and I’m not one to disagree!
I adore dogs and one day hopes to adopt one in the near future but in the meantime, I am happy to play with little Coffee and the gang.
If you like to visit, they are located in Pudding Chare in Newcastle Upon Tyne. There is a £5 entry fee which includes one free drink from the menu and you pay after your session.
It is advisable to book on their website here as they do go quite fast but definitely worth it if I say so myself.
