The Husky Cafe, Bangkok

The Husky Cafe is exactly what it sounds like, a restaurant/coffee shop area attached to a playground where over 30 huskies are resident.

We had planned to visit the last time we were in Bangkok but unfortunately timings meant we missed out. This time though we made sure it was the first thing we did!

We absolutely love animals and have a husky of our own called Loki who is the fluffiest, friendliest dog you will ever meet. While we're travelling he's gone to stay with my parents and his brother from another mother Hendrix (an Alsation-cross-Collie).

The Husky Cafe was our perfect dog fix, with not only loads of huskies, but also Old English Sheepdogs and the boss, Momo a fluffy, well-coiffed character whom I don't actually know the breed of.

We purposely picked a hostel close to the cafe as it's slightly out of the main areas in Bangkok near Phaya Thai. 

They are closed on Mondays but have 2 sessions on all other days at 12.30pm and 3.30pm. 

We went for the 12.30pm option arriving around 12.10pm. There were already quite a few people there, so it's definitely recommended that you get in early to avoid disappointment. 

On arrival we had to fill in a quick form and then after paying 350 baht each (around £8) we were shown to a table and given a choice of a piece of cake and drink which was included in the entry fee.

We went for an ice cream cake each and one of their homemade drinks.

Although the session starts at 12.30pm we didn't get to go in to see the huskies until 1pm. You get an hour to spend with them. 

We were shown a short video about the house rules and then told to remove our shoes to put on plastic covers on our feet and wash our hands.

We could now finally meet the fluffies! 

The dogs are very well taken care of with beautiful fur and you can tell they are well loved just by watching the interactions with the staff. They really enjoy the attention, although trying to get a selfie with them is hard! 

There are a lot of people which means sometimes trying to get your own husky to pet is a bit difficult, but it just means you have to be up for sharing!

We were able to have our photo taken with a couple of the huskies jumping onto our shoulders which the staff organised. Pretty cool!

The playground is clean and the area doesn't smell at all despite there being so many dogs. There were quite a few accidents (dogs peeing) but the staff were completely on it, immediately cleaning up the mess.

All in all we really enjoyed our husky experience and would recommend it if you have the time. It's short but definitely feels like enough time. 

At the very end the staff put all the dogs in an enclosure at the very back of the playground. They feed the dogs in the house and so you get the opportunity to stand close to the house with your camera and video them all being released at once and running to eat. It's one of the best bits.
