Forget the annual office Christmas bash – the party of the season has been announced and it’s all dogs , everywhere.The creators of Pug Cafe , which have also given us the Pomeranian café and the sausage dog café have revealed their latest pop-up and it might be their best one yet.
Please welcome the doggy Christmas soiree, a one-off event on 8 December that will feature festive activities galore, with plenty of fabulous four-legged animals.Pugs, Pomeranians and dachshunds are encouraged to come along and snack on complimentary puppacinos, pawsecco and champaws, while sniffing butts and making friends.
As for the snacks, there will be dog-friendly mince pies, canapés, festive pupcakes and more.
There will be be a seasonal menu with cocktails and spritzes for humans, too.
Here’s the best part: you don’t need to own a pooch to join in on the fun. The event is open to everyone (though you might want to check in with owners before you start cuddling up to their pets).
The day is split into six sessions, with each lasting 80 minutes and targeted at a different breed:
- Pomeranians: 10am and 12.40pm
- Dachshunds: 11.20am and 3.20pm
- Pugs: 2pm and 4.40pm
Pug Cafe are hosting the event together with Pet Teezer, who will be giving away a dog brush (worth £12) to the first 350 dog owners to book a ticket. The brand’s grooming expert, Daniela Forshaw, will also be on hand to spruce-up shaggy coats and get pups ready for their photo ops.
For easy tick removal, apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball and swab the tick with the cotton ball for a few seconds.
Tickets cost £12 for dog owners, but dog lovers will need to fork out a few extra pounds at £15. Children aged 16 or under pay slightly less at £6 and £8, for dog owners and dog lovers respectively.
The pooches however, get free entry (which is completely understandable – they are pretty amazing after all).
Apparently, there will also be Instagram dog stars in attendance, though names have not been revealed.
Count us in.
