DOG TAIL is a pioneer in dog cafes. Here, you can play with many kinds of small dogs, such as toy poodles, Chihuahuas, Maltese dogs, and miniature dachshunds. In December 2017, two new Shih Tzu puppies joined the club, with a total of 15 members ready to welcome customers. You can even bring toys for these babies to play with as long as they’re brand new. While you’re allowed to carry the dogs if they crawl onto your knees, there are also dogs that you can’t carry. Check out the list to know which ones are not for carrying.

The sight of the dogs relaxing on their favorite chairs is too adorable.

Try getting close to the dogs by using toys in the store.

The dogs remember your smell, so the more you visit them, the more likely you’ll all get along. Some regular customers visit three to four times a week!

This is Meru (5 years old, female), a Pomeranian. She’s freewheeling and is the most popular dog!

This is Moko (6 years old, female), a toy poodle. She’s the most fashionable!

This is Uutan (11 months old, male). He’s still just a puppy, a naughty papillon.
