Barkin’ Blends Dog Café: A Dog Lovers Haven ♡

Hello dearies!

Today I will be sharing with you my not so latest foodie adventure. This is not like those cafés that I reviewed from the past but I will tell you this place is worth visiting especially if you are like me — erhm a dog lover :).

Barkin’ Blends Dog Café is the first dog café established here in the Philippines. Their aim is to provide a better connection between dogs and humans. As they say “We want to enhance everyone and every dogs lives”. Interaction with dogs or pets in general is therapeutic. Studies shows that it improves the over all well being of an individual.

Can’t you see I am excited?! 🙂 *giggles*

The café is divided into two zones: the human and the dog zone. Human Zone is the area where in food is served. They offer different kind of pastas, sandwiches, cute pupcakes and refreshing drinks.

Pupcakes galore. 🙂

This pasta dish is super yummy. The pasta is cooked al dente and I like the creamy white sauce. Sorry I forgot the name of the dish.

Here are the other photos:

To be able to enter at the Dog Zone you need to pay Php 190 which is inclusive of one drink. You can choose from espresso, traditional tea, Café Americano, milk or fruit tea. You may also opt for a rock salt and cheese, macchiato, latte or even frappes with an additional fee. After paying you will be requested to sign a waiver and a ticket to the dog zone will be given to you.

As you enter the Dog Zone the friendly staffs will brief you about the do’s and dont’s inside the zone. Do not fret because all dogs inside were vaccinated.

Before entering you need to sanitized your hands. This is to prevent inflicting the dogs with bacteria. Next you need to change your foot wear. Don’t worry slippers were provided. The staff will ask you to place your things inside the locker. The locker has no key so make sure you get your important belongings.

Now let’s meet the cute and cuddly barkin’ buddies:

It was a nice experience for me bonding with these cuddly dogs. I honestly felt relaxed after playing with the dogs. The concept of a dog café is unique. It also teaches those who want to get a dog about responsible pet ownership. I have three dogs at home and I enjoyed taking care of them. It was difficult but worth it because the love and happiness they give in return is price less. ♡
