While we’re on the topic of sausage dogs , we have good news – there’s a new party for pooches this weekend and this time it’s all about the 70s.
This coming Sunday (8 March), dogs dressed in their finest sequins, spandex and flared jeans will descend upon The Allegory in Shoreditch for the first-ever sausage dog disco.
Not based in the capital? Don’t worry, the party will keep on groovin’ in Newcastle, Southampton and Manchester as well, though dates have not yet been announced. The playlist will showcase the best of the Motown and disco eras so that pooches can break out the moves on the doggy dance floor, while sipping on pawsecco and champaws.
And posing for the puparazzi like the divas they are, obviously.
Humans can join their pup in a toast, with cocktails and coffee on the menu, as well as yummy cakes.
Meeting your new puppy, kitten or any other pet can be an exciting experience. Your pet, however, has some adjusting to do. New sights, smells and sounds can be overwhelming for the little guy and keeping a calm household is important.
The theme for the day is love+disco, so there will also be a kissing frame and a lover’s bench, as well as plenty of funky decorations.
As is often the rule for Pug Café events, it’s one breed only and this time it’s dachshund.
Both dog owners and dog lovers itching to cuddle up to pooches – but who don’t have one – are welcome to come along.
Tickets start from £10 for adults and cost between £5 to £7 for those aged under 16, while anyone under the age of six can come along for free.Word of warning: these events usually sell out fast, so it’s recommended that you get in there quick if you want to show off your best John Travolta routine or Do The Hustle.
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.
