Move over cat cafe's, the dog cafes are coming!

If you're more of a dog person, you've probably spent a good amount of time avoiding cat cafes, and wishing there were the same things for dogs.

Well, you won't have to wait much longer, as Christchurch is getting NZ's first dog cafe!

Adorably named "The Barkery", the cafe will not only offer customers the opportunity to hang out with pets while the catch up over coffee, but the dogs will also be up for adoption!

Each day, the dogs will be bought in from local shelters, including the Dogwatch Sanctuary Trust and Christchurch Bull Breed Rescue, for customers to meet. 

Diners would be welcome to bring their own pooches to play at The Bakery, but they would be kept segregated from the rescues for safety.

Like Cat Cafe's the food preparation will be done in a separate room, closed off with a quarantine door to apply with health and safety standards.

The Barkery is set to open in mid-2020 in Christchurch. Keep up with The Barkery, here.
