A dog cafe is coming to Greater Manchester, and it’s opening this month!
Pet-sitting company The Mog and Dog Squad will open a cafe in Denton where dog owners will be able to grab a coffee and a slice of cake for themselves, and something from the dedicated doggy menu for their four-legged friend.
A spokesman for The Mog and Dog Squad said, unlike Manchester cat cafe, no dogs will be kept on site, but company mascot Mylo the rescue dog will be a regular feature at the cafe. And the owners will be operating a Bring Your Own Dog policy, meaning dog lovers will also be welcome to pop in for a brew and a snuggle with one of the visiting doggos.
“The dog cafe came about because I kept hearing that there weren’t that many places to take dogs in Manchester. So we did our research and discovered that, although there are a few dog-friendly places, none of them actually cater to dogs, so we decided we would have a menu for humans and dogs.
“We chose Denton because there’s a really good community spirit there and we thought we could come up with something to celebrate that. We want the cafe to serve as a meeting point so if you have dogs you can bring them in and relax and if you love dogs but don’t have one yourself, there will be plenty on site to make a fuss of.”
As well as cake and cuddles, the cafe will also be home to a dog and cat shop where owners will be able to pick up food, healthy treats and toys for their pets as well as animal-themed gifts for their fellow humans.
The cafe will open on September 15 when the owners will hold an opening party with free pup cakes, balloons, raffle prizes and free muscular health checks courtesy of Cheshire Canine Massage Therapy. The party will run from 10am and will be free to attend. For more information visit the cafe Facebook page.
