Bacolod’s first dog pet cafe has quietly existed without many knowing. The pet cafe has been in operation for more than a year now. I’ve never knew about it until I heard from a friend. I got so excited that after a visit from the animal shelter I head down to Furkids Grooming & Cafe.
If you’re more of a dog lover then this is a place you don’t want to miss. The place is located in Shop 10A Triangle Island Plaza Mall B.S. Aquino Drive Bacolod City.
Stepping into the cafe made me fall in love with their furbabies. They are all so cute and adorable. Some greeted me with a gentle bark, a gentle lick on my legs 🙂 a tap of a little paw on my back. You can play with them, hug them, take pictures and take a selfie with them 🙂 I promise you will definitely enjoy it.
The cafe serves food and drinks ranging from sodas, fruit shakes and iced tea at a very minimal price. Food is serve outside the cafe, the main reason for this is because the smells of the food stimulates their dogs playful mode. All their dogs are well-trained so meaning they have their own food as a treats for their positive reinforcement. According to research that positive reinforcement training of dogs is much more effective and ultimately successful than training involving dominance and punishment.
The staff here are very friendly, accommodating and approachable. They are very welcoming to answering all your questions regarding the pets.
The cafe is very clean, neat and well organised. The place smells good, no hint of any doggy smell inside. All the dogs are well-groomed by their owner. They have their grooming shop right beside the cafe. So you know that they are all well taken care.
The cafe is open everyday except Thursday from 10AM to 7PM.

YURI the Border Collie. She has been sleeping when I came to the cafe. I wasn’t able to play with her that much. The Border Collie is considered highly intelligent, extremely energetic, acrobatic and athletic, they frequently compete with great success in sheepdogs trials and dog sports. They are often cited as the most intelligent of all domesticated dogs.
EMBER, the Siberian Husky. Ember is a very playful dog. She never run out of energy. Siberian Husky does not display the possessive qualities of the guard dog, nor he is overlay suspicious of strangers or aggressive with other dogs. Indeed, the free-spirited Siberian Husky is usually good-natured with everyone. He is also very playful, athletic, agile and light on his feet. Be aware that this athletic, intelligent dog can be independent and challenging for first-time dog owners.
ZOEY the fluffy Chow Chow. She is simply contented and relaxed sitting on top of the table but she is the most adorable and cute that all you wanted to do is to hug and bring her home 🙂 She likes going round and round on top of the table that makes her more cute and adorable. grr… I just wanted to squeeze her 🙂
This breed of dog has many strong loyal bonds with family and friend, but Chow Chow is usually overlay protective of one or two family members. It is in the breed’s nature to be quiet and well-behaved, but it is also resistant to training. Chow Chow become stubborn and attach to certain individuals, as they age. This is why training them when they are puppies is so crucial because they gain respect for those who care for them.
SCARLET is a Cocker Spaniel. She is very sweet, happy, gentle and playful. This kind of dog is very friendly and peaceful with strangers and other animals, though there is timidity and excessive submissiveness in some lines. Cocker Spaniels are very responsive to persuasive, cheerful obedience training that includes praise and food rewards.
MAMBA, the Sheltie. She is the most energetic as well among the dogs. She cannot just sit in and do nothing. This kind of dog is unhappy when left for long periods of time without companionship. Most Shelties have a soft, sweet temperament. They’re peaceful with other animals and polite with everyone, though typically reserved and sometimes timid with strangers. They need more socialization than many other breeds.
MARGAUX the Toy Poodle. She is a darling :). Poodles are renowned for a playful but dignified personality and keen intelligence. The Poodle is no snob. These are people-friendly dogs who want to stay close to their families-they get lonely when left by themselves for long periods and are always up for a good game.
BELLA the Shih Tzu the toy dog breed. Bella is a sweet little girl contented sleeping in the corner or just walk around the play room. She is very affectionate, happy, outgoing housed who loves nothing more than to follow her people inside the playroom. The Shih Tzu is known to be a lover, not a hunter.
ROLLER the Pomeranian “the little dog who thinks he can” is compact, active and obedience. Pomeranians weigh about five pounds but this small dogs have personalities of something a lot larger. They are curious dogs, alert and interested in everything that is going around them. They bark often to let you know that someone is walking by. They love to be the center of attention, and have known to behave mischievously in order to get attention they crave.
Then they have Gabby the Germane Shepherd, Duches the Dachshund and Mochica the Jack Russel but I wasn’t able to take them pictures :(. Kids were so busy playing with them. But next time around, I will take their pictures.
They have a grooming salon right beside their cafe. They have a lot to offer from dog food to other sort of products and accessories for your furbabies.
I truly enjoyed my wonderful day with these wonderful fur babies. I will definitely comeback anytime soon. 🙂
