Hands Up, Melaka People and Pets!
Melaka has always been known for its historical destinations and great tourist attraction spots. We have always love its scrumptious local delicacies - the nyonya food, cendol and more yum yums. So our team made an effort to also find out the awesome furry cafes in this lovely city.
Woof Station (Melaka)
Entertainment and Education are the forces which elevate the Woof Station into becoming our top pick. Although customers are NOT allowed to bring their own dogs into the cafe, Woof Station brings a refreshing experience of dining with dogs that separates them from all other dog cafes. Driven by a passion for dogs and animal welfare, this dog café is more than just a cozy place for families and animal lovers to enjoy a selection of freshly brewed coffee and delicious snacks alongside the adorable dogs in residence. Woof Station also helps to educate customers on how to handle and interact with the dogs so as to increase the value of each guest’s dining experience as well as enlighten them with new techniques of training and communicating with their own dogs (a crucial skill that every dog owner should possess, especially if they own a house dog).
Woof Station further heightens the customer experience of being one with the dogs through their unique seating, which stems from the idea of creating an open, house-like atmosphere for customers to explore and play with the dogs freely. However, customers are welcome and encouraged to approach any member of staff if they have any questions about how to handle dogs. Customers are not solely restricted to dining on chairs and table, but they also have the option to sit on the floor amongst the dogs. Currently, there are three dogs – two Huskies and one Samoyed – residing in the cafe, with an old English Sheepdog puppy on the way, all of whom are trained and disciplined by the owner himself. Therefore, customers need not worry about the dogs consuming their food as they have been effectively trained NOT to do just that!
Idea/Motivation behind the cafe:
One simple motivation. A powerful impact: To share his passion for dogs to the public, and more importantly, to heighten and solidify the bond between dogs and humans. How? By creating a safe, friendly, open space for humans to get up close and personal with the dogs in residence as well as learn about how to fully engage with them.
As said before, entertainment and education are the foundations of the cafe’s mission. Ultimately, the goal is to provide every customer with a unique, comfortable, personal experience with the dogs in a house-like environment where families, friends, and every member of the community can unwind and enjoy the company of friendly dogs whilst enriching their understanding of canines, and alleviate any wrong impressions they may have about the general temperament of dogs. So don’t worry if you’re not particularly keen on dogs, Woof Stations aims to give customers the chance to witness a dog’s love and change that mindset around!
Aspirations for the future of the business:
Currently, there is still a need to increase awareness on animal welfare and to educate the public about such matters. However, in the future, there are plans to open a professional, proper, clean boarding house alongside the cafe that is fully air-conditioned and comfortable for the dogs – a priority that is stressed in Woof Station.
Dogs in Residence:
The three dogs in residence belong to the owner and the dogs that do come in are imported (typically puppies to be trained and nurtured in the café). And good news for customers who are looking to adopt a dog: Woof Station offers the chance to adopt any dogs that are available upon request. However, to ensure that you are fully equipped and ready to commit many years to caring for a dog, you will have to be interviewed (a procedure that is necessary to protect the welfare of both owner and dog).
Recommendations from the Menu (only available to humans):
As customers are NOT allowed to bring their own dogs, Woof Station only provides food and beverages to humans. Currently, the cafe serves snacks and a variety of imported drinks from all over the world including Austrian coffee, lemonade from Greece, and hot chocolate from the UK. This is perfect for anyone wanting to satisfy their taste-buds with sips from a number of countries!
