The Dog Café

posted by The Daily Fluff August 3, 2017 0 comments

Any foodie in Melbourne loves exploring to find the latest and greatest cafés. Every weekend is a new adventure to seek out all the smashed avo and coffee options. However, no adventure would be complete without a trusted animal sidekick to share all your discoveries with.

Luckily we have just the place for you and your pooch! Clear out your weekend plans and head down to The Dog Café!

Located in Boronia, The Dog Café is the newly opened cafe that is friendly for both pets and owners. It has everything for every dog lover including good food, coffee and company. With white tables and chairs sitting outside, The Dog Café is just begging for you to sit down and relax with your pup. The inside of The Dog Café is no different with its hanging lightbulbs from the ceiling that helps create that dreamy café aesthetic.

When you step out back and take notice of the mural of dogs wondering the Melbourne streets, you can see how much this café loves the cute four-legged creatures. With a turf covered ground, a sand pit, hay stacks and doggie pools, your fur baby will be unable to resist what the café has to offer. Let them play and meet new friends as you can sit down on the picnic tables and enjoy the sunshine without worrying about keeping your pet on a leash.

But of course, a café isn’t a café without mouth-watering food and drinks. For your satisfaction, The Dog Café has a large array of drinks for every café lover, including coffee, cappuccinos, long blacks, hot chocolates, ice coffee and milkshakes. Be prepared to leave plenty of room in your stomach for the wide selection of salads, cakes and slices. The Dog Café also has plenty of options for every dog that has been longing to enjoy the café lifestyle. There are puppacinos, dog food and dog rolls that will make your furry foodie so full they’ll just sprawl on the turf.

We know how we’ll be spending our weekend! Join us and visit this must-see destination.

Open hours are: Friday – Sunday from 9am till 4pm.

Address: 120 Boronia Road, Boronia.

3 Things To Do With Your Furry Friend This Long Weekend

posted by The Daily Fluff March 9, 2017 0 comments

Are you looking forward to this long weekend? All of us at the Daily Fluff sure are! Big plans in motion? A mini vay-cay perhaps? We can assure you that your furry friend is looking forward to having that extra day to spend with you. In case you’re out of ideas here are 3 things you can do with your pet over this weekend.

  1. A trip to the Mornington Peninsula:

What’s on? Well not only could you visit many of the sandy beaches, this weekend the Mornington Farmers markets happen to be on. Held on the second Saturday of every month, the Farmer’s markets give you the opportunity to meet the hard workers behind the wholesome food; the butchers, bakers and growers. The market is a go-to for those looking for sustainable, chemical free and less travelled food that is actually sold by those who make or grow it! With plenty of stalls offering a variety of goods, you are bound to find lots of goodies from cheeses, breads and jams to meats, seafoods, beers and wine. Talk about the perfect date with your pooch!

  1. Royal Botanical Gardens, South Yarra:

Covering 63 hectares with thousands of different plant life including beautiful flowers and extravagant trees, the Botanical Gardens is an excellent place to take your pup on that extra long walk you’ve been meaning to do! Dogs do have to stay on-leash but they won’t mind as the gardens offer an escape from the city and concrete jungle of Melbourne. It really feels like you’re lost in nature in there. And to top it off, a visit to the Observatory Cafe is a must for a cup of coffee, a glass (or two) of wine or a scoop of ice-cream (there’s a decent selection). Your pooch can enjoy it with you since it’s dog-friendly!

  1. ‘The Abby’ Abbotsford Convent:

An exciting dog-friendly spot The Abby, is open every day of the year which makes it the perfect destination this long weekend! Enjoy a fresh baguette from the Convent bakery (famous for their baked delicious goods) then grab a drink from the bar. To conclude, take a picnic and you can both relax and enjoy the live music on the grass. The grounds of The Abby are great for a walk and if you’re up for a splurge there’s also an award-winning restaurant.

These are only a few ideas for what you could do over this long weekend with your furry friend. So we hope you decide to take your dog with you when you head out on an adventure!

How To Celebrate Halloween With Your Pet

posted by The Daily Fluff October 27, 2016 0 comments

We can barely believe it, but Halloween is just around the corner! This spooky time of the year is a great excuse for you and your pet to get dressed up and enjoy some sweet treats.

If you’re feeling like getting ghostly, then here are a few tips to make sure everyone enjoys the celebrations.

Dress them up:

Time to get into costume! As if we even needed another excuse to dress up our pets. Whether you want to wear matching costumes, or want to let your furry friend shine in the spotlight, make sure that your outfits are pet friendly. Keep any zips or embellishments out of the way so your pet can’t chew on anything not-so-sweet.

You can even make your own costume, like our friends Biggie and Lil Kim:

“Our human dresses us up all the time; it’s super easy to make a ghost costume out of an old sheet”

Spooky snaps:

If you’re going to get all dressed up, you might as well have a photoshoot, right? Ask a friend to be your photographer and grab some happy-halloween family shots. You will cherish these photos for a lifetime, and they’ll definitely be double-tap worthy too.

Treat time:

Why should the humans have all the fun? While we wish we could share our Halloween takings with our pets, we all probably know that’s not the best idea. Make sure they don’t miss out on all the sweets, and prepare some animal-only treats. Try freezing plain yoghurt and raspberries for a bloody looking treat.

Safety first:

While Halloween is great fun for us humans, it’s important to be weary of common things that can put our pet’s health at risk. Here are a few tips:

  • Keep all lollies and treats out of your pet’s reach. Chocolate can be pretty toxic and cause nasty side effects like vomiting, diarrhoea, increased heart rate and even seizures. To avoid any visits to the vet keep your treats in air-tight containers and keep an eye on your pets at all times.
  • If your pet gets a bit spooked by visitors, make sure you keep them distracted from any ghostly or mysterious guests. We would recommend taking them to another room and playing their most favourite game, or grabbing them their favourite treat to distract them.
  • If you’re planning on decorating the house, make sure you keep any decorations well out of reach for your little friend!
  • With people coming and going, there is a chance that your pet might get out through open doors. Grab your pet an ID tag with their name and your number listed, and make sure that they are micro chipped so they can be returned home safely if they go wandering
