Dog Cafe

Vancouver’s Catfe is a massive success; people off all ages love petting the purring inhabitants on the regular while sipping their java and tea.

Now, many people are even considering how an alpaca cafe would do in the city, as it proved a huge success in Taiwan. Indeed, if the popularity of the alpaca farm in Langley is any indication, it would be a huge success.

Last year, Vancouver held a pop-up puppy cafe and it was extremely popular. The event was orgaized to help the SPCA connect pups with new owners, and people loved it. As a result, people are thinking a dog cafe is just want our oceanside city needs.

A Dog Cafe in Vancouver?

While dogs are a bit more rambunctious than cats, there are dog cafes in other places that do very well. What’s more, it may be a viable option for rescue shelters to introduce people to pets, as well as raise funds. In addition, pets are known to lower blood pressure and make people happy. A calming cafe in the heart of the city may be a boon for stress from the hustle and bustle of the city.
