Two dog lovers have organised a Christmas themed pop-up dog café in Birmingham where dogs will have a social space to interact with their owners and eat Christmas dinner
Dogs can enjoy a Christmas dinner with their owners at a pop-up café in Birmingham.
They will wash down their meal with a choice of 'Puppacino' or 'Pawroni' (water) at the event called Barky Blinders: Christmas Pop Up on December 8.
The event will be hosted by qualified dog groomer Katie Elf and Hannah Floyd at the Queen's Arms on Newhall Street in the city centre.
The pair, both 32, told BirminghamLive they wanted to organise a pop-up event because of their love for dogs and a 'lack of social spaces where people and their dogs can have fun'.
There is a struggle to find a place that looks after dogs in the city centre during working hours, according to Hannah.
Their idea is to set up a dog care centre which will be open between 7am and 7pm combined with a grooming service and a dog cafe.
Katie said: “My two biggest loves in life are cakes and dogs and to combine the two I think is amazing.
“Everybody loves dogs and to have its own designated place that is festive and lovely for dogs is the perfect idea.
“It’s a nice chance to take the dog out and let them have their day and their little lunch. I think dogs deserve it.”
She has a mixed-breed dog called Stewie who is 10 years old and Hannah has a 15-month-old miniature dachshund called Sausage.

On the day there will be a photo shoot area, a 'barkery stand' with cakes and treats for dogs as well as people and a competition for the dog dressed up in the best Christmas or Peaky Blinders outfit.
Hannah said: “It’s purely for a bit of fun and to get feedback on what we need to do for a permanent solution.”
Katie added: “All my friends and family know how long I’ve been going on about this doggy café and now it’s like a dream coming to reality.”
