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.
Make sure your pet is in good company. Pets get lonely and depressed just like people do when they spend too much time alone. Cats are generally better on their own, but dogs and especially puppies don’t do well left to their own devices for extended periods of time.
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.
