Imagine a restaurant that caters to people, pampers pooches, lets them bark nonstop, and even offers them bowls of shaved ice. This fantasy is a reality at the Bau House Cafe in Seoul, South Korea. On a typical weekend, this oasis for dog lovers serves 50 to 60 tables of customers in its third floor space near a university, with pet owners sipping pricey fruit shakes while their dogs nibble on free treats. For a pet, that’s the next best thing to drinking water out of the toilet!
Approximately 15 dogs who are pets of the owner live at the Bau House Cafe full-time. The place was created about five years ago to let pets and owners congregate, which is unique to Seoul restaurants.
