Paws for Coffee The Dog-Friendly Cafe
These new cafes and coffee shops are the brainchild of my daughter Louise Rawlinson.
Louise has a very successful dog walking, dog home daily dog crèche called (1) Paws Academy
She is also an accomplished puppy and adult dog trainer. and has numerous classes for both.
Paws for Coffee opened in Hampton Hill, opposite one of the entrances to Bushy Park. The second-largest Royal Park in Greater London.
Paws for Coffee even has doggy menus that include puppychinos (goats milk lightly warmed with black pudding pieces in the bottom) plus a selection of homemade dog treats and Calves Hooves etc. Plus specialised dog accessories.
All dogs are welcome to sit at the tables with you. Each table has dog lead hooks that have been specially made to be robust as are the tables that are totally unique.
Since opening the first Paws for Coffee In March 2016 it has been spectacularly busy and very well received. It is the place to come for discerning dog owners, the coffee and food has been voted number one in Hampton Hill.
One of the things that I found unusual was very few customers coming into the cafe use their mobile phones except to take pictures. They talk to the other customers. I think that is because they have something in common. And that is, of course, the Dogs. They are brilliant icebreakers.
Having said that, the shops are attracting lots of adults and children that do not own a dog. There are kiddies menus and free doggy handmade balloons and colouring pages. Paws for Coffee is open to all, however, do expect to see dogs in there when you arrive.
The Cafe has free Wifi and a very wide and varied menu, of course, it serves absolutely great coffee. Just have a look on and see what people are saying about it. There are rave reviews about the food that caters also caters for gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan customers as well as carnivores.
I hope to see you there? Though I am extremely busy as a full-time behaviourist, I still pop in on an almost daily basis. If I am there, it may be possible to get some advice and tips, if you are having behavioural or training problems with your dogs.
Below are some pictures and a dog’s eye view video clip courtesy of John Royle who owns the little terrier. Though it plays on my computer, it does not appear to work on my phone. Paws for Coffee has been awarded the highest rating by the food standards agency.
