Do you love doggy play-time and cuddles? Maybe you’re on holiday without your dog and missing your canine pal. Perhaps you can’t have a dog of your own, but you still like to be around them. Well then, there’s a dog café in Edinburgh that’s just for you!
What is a Dog Café?
The animal café concept began about twenty years ago in Southeast Asia and has now spread around the world. Animal cafés offer everything an ordinary coffee shop would, but with the added extra of animals to play with. Customers are encouraged to pet, cuddle, take photos and enjoy the animals. The idea spread to Edinburgh in 2015, with the arrival Maison De Moggy, Edinburgh’s first cat café. It has been extremely popular, and now Chihuahua Café aims to bring man’s best friend to the public in the same way.
Visit The First Dog Café in Edinburgh
The Chihuahua Café is the first dog café in Edinburgh and Scotland. It can be found on Frederick Street in the New Town, just off Princes Street. That’s only a 15-minute walk from us at Parliament House Hotel.
The café has a wee pack of Chihuahuas, all owned and cared for by the proprietors. Of course, they all have their own names and personalities. They are a very friendly breed and they love a cuddle. So, you can grab a coffee and a cake and enjoy getting to know them.
The café implements a strict dog-care policy. The Chihuahuas receive training, have routine, structure and discipline, and are loved and well-cared for. To ensure it doesn’t get too crowded for the pups, you must book a slot online before making a visit. Please note, Chihuahua Café is not suitable for children under 5.
