I LOVE animals ! They always teach us unconditional love.
Animals don’t plan to hurt or destroy us. They not only have every right to co-exist with us, they should also be treated with love, compassion, and care. Without animals, we may slip into an abyss of loneliness and our very existence may even be threatened. As Mahatma Gandhi would say, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Moreover, I am a dog person. A dog is the only one who loves us more than we love ourselves! They are more excited about seeing us than many humans. They can show more love and affection than many of our friends and the best part is that they never judge us!
I have always loved animals but I was ( and sometimes am) scared of touching / petting them. Since two years now, I have gathered courage to pet animals. Further to this bravery of mine, I was intrigued to visit Therpup – The Dog Cafe in Whitefield while I was in Bangalore.
INR 250 on weekends and INR 150 on weekdays – The entire amount is fully redeemable against food and beverages inside.
Year round. The cafe is shut on Tuesdays
Reaching the cafe
We put the location in Google maps and left. The cafe is little on the inside in small lanes. We thought we’re in the wrong area but then finally figured the gate and entered. They have a huge space for these cuties!
We reached the place without any prior appointment. Please call and check with them for the same. Upon reaching we paid a cover charge.
Getting welcomed by wagging tails
There we some 8-9 dogs inside including a 3 month old cocker spaniel, 2 year old golden retrievers, beagles etc. We reached there around 2pm when the dogs are tired and sleepy.
The owner told us that the dogs are chirpy and fresh in the morning and evening. It’ll be better to visit them at that time. I’d suggest to visit in the morning since the crowd will be less.
We chilled there till around 5, had lunch there. The sandwiches, shakes and fries were delicious. We explored a little inside and found these lovely posters.
