The event will see more than 150 adorable sausage dogs enjoy a fun-filled day out while their owners have a chance to mingle.
Newcastle will welcome the pitter-patter of hundreds of tiny paws as a dachshund café arrives in the city later this month. Organisers set up the travelling ‘Pup Up Café’ to give owners and fans of canine companions a chance to chat with one another – all while getting cuddled by dozens of dogs.
Dachshunds will take over Revolution bar in the city centre on Sunday, 21 August, and the pop-up café space will be home to a range of activities all themed around four-legged friends. Pups are sure to have the time of their lives with unlimited treats and puppuccinos, as well as ball pits, tunnels and plenty of other toys.
Marcus Ackford, founder of Pup Up Café, said of the event: “We’re so excited to be coming to Newcastle! We’ve been around the area before with over 200 sausages visiting and already have over 150 booked in for our Newcastle visit.
“We hope everyone is ready for loads of Pup Up Café fun, from ball pits and doggy photo booths to unlimited puppuccinos, treats and lots of local doggy related businesses to browse plus lots more,” he added.
There will also be trade stands in the venue run by local vendors so that owners can spoil their pups with treats, toys, clothing and other goodies. The Pup Up Café team, who also run owner get-togethers for pugs, French bulldogs and poodles, have promised that further surprises await dachshunds and their humans on the day.
The event will take place from 10am until 5:30pm, and will be split into timed sessions to help manage numbers with up to 50 dogs in each session. Tickets are available to buy online, costing £12 excluding booking fees or £9 if you’re a dachshund owner.
