    The café is separated into two different units; Human and Dog zones. Human zone is the place for payment, registration, and guidelines for safety. There’s a single entry Entrance Fee of P190 inclusive of any drinks. A single entry purchased is non-transferrable and each guest is allowed to stay for 2 hours only inside the dog zone.

    The dog zone on the other hand houses its own group of dogs such as beagle, pug, Shih Tzu, Yorkshire terrier and poodle; lovely Maltese, good-looking golden retriever, Siberian husky, Labrador, and the well-loved American cocker spaniel among others. Before entering and leaving the dog zone, everyone is obliged to sanitize and use the provided footwear so the dogs won’t get exposed to any kind of germs and viruses.

    The dog zone is confined in an area divided into two floor space where you can simply sit on the floor, play, mingle and take photo with the dogs. Inside the dog zone, you can see attractive dog paintings hanging on the wall. There are benches where you can sit as an upbeat modern music plays in the background.
