Greater Manchester has its own dog cafe!
Pet-sitting company The Mog and Dog Squad has opened a cafe in Denton where dog owners can 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 are kept on site, but company mascot Mylo the rescue dog is a regular feature at the cafe. And the owners operate a Bring Your Own Dog policy, meaning dog lovers are also 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 is also home to a dog and cat shop where owners can pick up food, healthy treats and toys for their pets as well as animal-themed gifts for their fellow humans.
The cafe is based in 7-9 Ashton Road. For more information visit the cafe Facebook page.
