Korea - Bau House

I had the chance to visit a dog cafe in Seoul, Korea. It was my first time in a dog cafe and it was an eye opening experience.

The dog cafe is named Bau House (서울특별시 마포구 서교동 394-44 제일빌딩 후면 1층). The website is only in korea. Bau House was originally at Hongdae and it moved to Hapjeong Station (Line 6), Exit 3. Clue, follow the paw prints, the cafe is at the first level.

Dogs at Bau House

All you have to do to enjoy tons of doggy love is to order a drink and you are set. The cafe also sells dog treats that you can tempt dogs over to you. They have seperated the larger dogs from the smaller dogs so you sit at whichever section you are comfortable in. The large dogs section has a bigger space. The dogs will tend to approach and follow whoever is holding to the treats. On every table, they have a chart with the pictures and the names of the dogs at the cafe.

Doggy swarm

Also, be careful of your fingers when you feed the treats to the dogs. It is best to allow the dogs to lick the treats off your hand. Do note that the dogs made snap at one another when they are competing for the treats. And they also tend to swarm whoever is holding onto the treats.
