If you’re looking for a very unique way to enjoy some down time, you may want to check out one of Seoul’s animal cafes–particularly its puppy cafes. This unique café concept is great for dog lovers and even those who are not as familiar with these furry friends, but are interested in some quality cuddles.
Hanging out at Dog Cafes
While most dog cafes don’t have an entrance fee, you are required to buy a drink (prices usually range from 7,000-10,000 won) in order to play with the puppies. With a few exceptions, puppy cafes allow guests to pick the dogs up and play with them for as long as they please.
Some puppy cafes such as Puppy Spoon in Gangnam even have dogs who are trained to ride skateboards and do tricks. Additionally, some allow guests to bring their own puppies inside as well and have a wide variety of toys and food for dogs.
Where to Find Them
