For the unfamiliar, Shiba Inus are a breed of hunting dog from Japan known for being good-natured, smart, and most importantly, absolutely adorable. 

These furbabies roam freely around the cafe, so you can pet them, pick them up, and play with them any time.

If you want to feed the pups, you can also purchase dog treats from the cafe for S$0.63 (RM2). And an additional tip: the treats are also great as bait for helping to capture that perfect shot with the dogs! 

Entry to the cafe is S$3.14 (RM10) for an hour-long session and includes free soft drinks. The cafe also serves food such as Popcorn Chicken, Japanese Curry Rice, and more.

Cafe owner Desmond Ong opened the place to give his six dogs more space to run around after a neighbour complained about them barking. Right now, the cafe occupies the second floor of a shophouse, and there are plans to convert the third floor into a pet hotel. The space also offers dog grooming services, and puppies for sale.
