Country’s first dog café opens in Plzeň

The first dog café in the Czech Republic has opened in Plzeň, western Bohemia, the news agency ČTK reported on Sunday. Dog-owners can enjoy refreshments in the café while their pets are being groomed; the establishment features a dog salon, offers consultations with a vet, and sells dog treats, outfits cosmetics, and other things. The owners said they first wanted to open a café, and then thought of additional services. In the two weeks since the café first opened, around half of its customers came to have their dogs groomed, while the rest just stopped in for a coffee.
