Friendly and well socialised with other dogs
Up to to date with their vaccinations
Healthy and not showing any symptoms of contagious illness nor suffering (or recently suffered) from Kennel Cough.

Will the venue be open as normal that day?

Revolucion de Cuba will be closed to the public during the event.


Will this event be safe?

We pride ourselves on putting on safe events – please read our Pug Cafe Reviews.

Our main priority is to host a safe and fun event for both dogs and humans which is why we take manual bookings and adhere to a strict capacity limit. This is also a risk-assessed event, and we will do everything possible to ensure it is safe for all those attending

Unlike other dog events, Pug Cafe does not use a third party ticketing site and we will always ensure your time slot has a happy mix of dogs, humans, families and children.

How many Dachshunds can I bring?

Maximum four, but if you want to bring more please request in your booking email. It may not be fulfilled, but we will always try our best to fit in your party. But please, always ensure you are bringing enough people to help take care of all your dogs!

The ratio is 2 dogs per 1 human – this is so you have enough people in your party to take care of your dogs in the off-lead cafe environment.

Please DO NOT make large group bookings, if you wish to be in the same slot as your friends simply let us know in your email and we will try to accommodate you.

Are Dachshund crosses allowed?

Yes absolutely! Please be sure to tell us what mix they are in your booking email.

Are other breeds allowed to attend?

At Dachshund Cafe only Dachshunds are able to attend. We do host pop ups for other breeds too including Pugs, Frenchies and Pomeranians – keep an eye out for them!

Should I bring an anxious Dachshund?

If your dog is anxious or nervous then it is up to you as a responsible owner to decide whether the event is suitable for them. We do have quieter areas at the cafe where you can enjoy a more calmer experience, and may suit your Dachshund better.

You may also borrow an ‘NERVOUS’ bandana from us to alert fellow guests your Dachshund may need a little more personal space.

You can speak to us at time of booking to discuss any concerns prior to paying!


Do I need a Dachshund to attend Dachshund Cafe?

Dachshund Cafe is primarily for Dachshunds and their owners, but we do have many allocated spaces per time slot for guests without dogs, too.

We always welcome dog lovers to events – it’s a great opportunity to learn about the breed first hand from owners, make friends, enjoy the company of the dogs and a unique day out.
