This place is the ultimate spoil for your canine
I find it difficult to come up with new ways to spoil the Grandfurbaby. Sure, we take walks together, we visit off leash parks and beaches, and to be honest Bentley gets more of the couch than I do. There are only so many tennis balls a doting Granny can gift her favourite Labrador.
Entering Dog Barkery was a brand new experience for all of us. There are over thirty flavours of healthy treats and chews hanging in bags on the walls, and piled into plastic baskets along the floor were pigs ears and kangaroo tails of an assortment of flavours.
Newcastle's original is not just a dog Bbkery, but also a dog cafe with a menu including Puppuchinos, Liver Lattes, Muttshakes and Pupcakes. To be honest my head was spinning and Bentley was like a kid in a lolly shop.
Young Bentley, an only child and exceedingly pampered, just adored his carob and banana flavoured Muttshake, followed by a Hot Dog Pup Cake, which took only seconds to devour. Who even knew that dogs liked bananas?
Humans are not catered for in any fashion at the Dog Barkery due to health regulations, though there is a cafe next door with outdoor seating to the side of the building, with water bowls, which should appease the humans in the family.
And yes, if you think that's over the top, wait until you see the personalised birthday cakes and bones, which you can organise for your dog's special day. Please order at least 24 hours in advance, and if you need to arrange delivery that will be at an additional charge.
