Now that the Year of the Dog has officially rolled in, why don’t we take a look at some of the popular café spots to hang out with our furry friends in the neighbourhood?
The Year of the Dog, according to Chinese astrologists, will feel much different than last year, and that could actually be a good thing, too. Of all the Chinese Zodiacs, the Dog is a faithful companion, and is usually associated with honesty, loyalty, and prudence unlike the Rooster, which is seen as fastidious and quite demanding. Dogs are quick to follow and lead their own personal philosophy. They are passionate and have a sense of responsibility to protect those with high integrity and sound principles, and to fight for their cause. Whatever that means for you, these are only some of the observations which truly make “man’s best friend” a wonderful company to keep. If you’re looking for great places in the city to be in the company of our furry friends, then here is our list of our top 8 dog cafés to visit this 2018:
8 Doggy Dining Places (Cafes) to Check Out in Singapore
Just to set the records straight, dog cafes differ from dog-friendly cafes in the sense that the former does not just allow you to bring your pet dogs with you to dine with, but they also have a complete menu for both humans and dogs. In addition, most dog cafes offer indoor facilities such as a toilet area, air-conditioning dining, and a playground/play place for dogs to enjoy.
This pet café brings wonderful al fresco dining + fun activities for you and your furkids to a new level. With their well-maintained in-house facilities such as slides, swimming pools, caterpillar tunnel, and complete shower areas, both pet babies and owners are sure to have a funtastic time!
