Below are some questions that people have had in the past. Please go to the "Contact Us" page if you have a question that is not answered here!
How much does it cost to let my dog in the outside play area?
Entry to the outside area is $3 per dog or you can purchase a yearly subscription which allows unlimited entries.
How much is a yearly subscription to the outside play area? *Coming Soon!*
A yearly subscription is $100. So, if you come to the cafe more than 33 times in a year, you should probably purchase the yearly subscription. Plus, you won't have to pay every time, which will save you time!
What if a dog is being aggressive or intimidating to me or my dog?
Please let us know! We encourage people to be blunt and open with the other dog owners. Don't hesitate to get their attention or let them know they need to get control of their dog. However, if you feel uncomfortable doing so, please let us know in any way you feel comfortable, and we will do our best to have a private conversation with them while offering contact info to a local reputable trainer.
Is there a "lifeguard" on duty for the off-leash area?
No. We are a small family doing our best to keep people satisfied with food and drinks, so unfortunately, we are unable to monitor the activity of the off-leash area. We wish we could sit back there all day and play with dogs, but it just isn't possible. So, please keep control of your dog and be aware of other people's dogs behavior.
Do you have a small dog area?
Yes. We have the Tea Cup area, which is exclusively reserved for small dogs, which is $1 per entry. This area is suggested for any tiny dogs that might not be comfortable hanging with the big dogs. Or, if you have a medium-sized dog that is uncomfortable with other big dogs, this area might be a nice middle-ground to keep feeling safe.
Are dogs allowed inside?
Yes! Dogs are allowed inside if they are leashed and do not display aggressive behavior. You are responsible for your dog at all times - inside or outside.
Can I let my dog play outside while I eat inside?
No, sorry. All dogs are to be accompanied by their owner, and they must be controlled by vocal commands.
Can I bring more than one dog in the outside play area?
Yes, but...You must be in control of your dogs at all times with either leash or vocal commands. It's not a pleasant experience for you or anyone else if your dogs are dragging you around. We suggest trying one dog at first to see how it goes and trying more than one later if you're unsure about the level of control you have with your dogs.
Do you allow all dog breeds?
Yes. We do not discriminate against dog breeds. However, we are not responsible for your dog or anyone else's dog. If your dog exhibits aggressive behavior, you will be asked to leave and given contact info of a local trainer. Please make sure your dog properly trained and not aggressive before bringing it to the cafe.
Do you allow unneutered/intact male dogs in the outside play area?
Unfortunately, no. Unneutered dogs are not allowed in the off-leash area, and subsequently must be on a leash at all times. As much as we hate to exclude any dogs in the off-leash play area, research has shown that unneutered dogs increase the chances of aggressive behavior from neutered dogs, and bring risk of unwanted pregnancies. We understand that some people will dislike this policy, and we apologize for the lack of accommodation.
Do you allow children in the off-leash area?
Unfortunately, children below the age of 12 are not allowed in the off-leash area. As much as we love children and hate to limit their interactions with dogs, due to insurance and liabilities, we have to limit the age allowed in the off-leash area to 12 and above. Children are allowed everywhere besides the off-leash area, and there are places where they can view the off-leash area safely.
Do you have free wifi?
Absolutely, paying customers can surf the web here! Our wifi password is posted on the back of our espresso machine next to the register, so feel free to hang out and get some work done!
