Bau House – a Dog Cafe in Hapjeong, South Korea

Do you love dogs but live a lifestyle that would be cruel for that pooch at home?  Well I know I do.  I would love to have a dog but between Seoul Hiking Group on the weekends and traveling for weeks & months every year I know it would be unfair to my furry friend and have decided to wait.  Once I finally settle down I’ll surely adopt a dog or two but until then I have to satisfy my canine cravings with friends dogs and of course the unique dog cafe in South Korea.  Directions at the bottom!

Bau House is a wonderful place where you can come and play with dozens of friendly dogs.  They are happy to sit with you as you sip a coffee or work on that term paper.  I’m not brave enough to bring my laptop but some of the regulars will curl up with a pup and type away.  Entrance is free but they ask that you buy at least 1 drink to help cover the costs.  Most of the dogs live here with the owners but you can bring your own pup too!_DSC6988 _DSC6963

Considering how many dogs there are they make surprisingly few messes and on those occasional accidents the staff instantly swoops in with cleaner and a fragrance to cover it up.  For as little as ₩3000 you can become every dogs’ best friend with a bag of treats.  I highly recommend this but remember to offer the treats with an open hand or some of the more enthusiastic dogs might give your fingers a nibble too.
