Pupp Cafe Closing On 17th Dec

Posted on December 08, 2017 by Ella Wallace | 2 comments

Two and a half years ago we created Pupp to make Ireland more dog-friendly, and feel incredibly proud that it has driven such progress towards that goal. There are now over 20 dog-friendly food businesses in Dublin (check out IComeUndone or Lovin Dublin for details), the Food Safety Authority have updated the law to officially permit dogs in restaurant and bars, and The Dog-Friendly Association of Ireland (our b2b organisation helping companies become dog-friendly) has grown to over 100 members including some of the largest employers in the country.

We are delighted with the progress and as outlined in our October announcement (read all about it here), feel it is now time for us to take some time off before we start exploring some of the other, more radical ideas and ambitions we have for Pupp. To that end, we have decided that December 17th 2017 will be our final day running the Pupp cafe.

We received a flood of interest since the announcement, and as of January 2018 will welcome an incredible food business that we are HUGE fans of to the Clanbrassil St premises. We're really excited about their food and offerings, and think their values around community, health, and wellbeing will be a great continuation of the cafe. 

Having considered the future of the business at length, we chose not to include the Pupp name, brand, website, etc as part of the deal with the new occupiers. The new tenants of 37 Clanbrassil St have a clean slate to run their business as they wish, and the cafe will rebrand as part of the change. We'll be able share more details soon!

Though the restaurant be changing, we'll still be very much continuing the other elements of Pupp. Pupp's online store will continue to sell a great range of fun and exclusive dog accessories in Ireland. Similarly, our work on the Dog-Friendly Association (www.DFAI.ie) will carry on as before.

As mentioned in the previous blog post, we have some other projects planned for early next year however now have the flexibility to explore some other ideas for the Pupp business in the longer term. Stay tuned for more news on that front!

In the meantime, we're super excited to tell everyone about the fabulous business that will take over the Clanbrassil St space as of January 2018! Thanks again to everyone who has been part of the Pupp journey so far, and we look forward to introducing you to a brand new Clanbrassil St food business soon!

Hi guys I am so disappointed to hear your news. You will be so missed. Since you opened we brought our 2 dogs to visit and then our 3rd when she arrived. Not only was the food great but the staff so friendly. We will be up to visit before you close. Thanks for the experience and best wishes for your future adventures.

Sizing Guide

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, and we want whatever you buy to be comfortable and well fitted for your pooch. Sizing can often be confusing, with manufacturers using different standards and metrics. At Pupp we list all our sizes in cm's so you can find the perfect fit.

How to measure your dog:

Collars

Neck: Measure right around the neck, allowing enough room to slide 2 fingers in for comfort

Harnesses

Chest: Measure right around the body around the deepest part of your dog's chest, usually just behind the dog's front legs.

Neck: Measure right around the neck, allowing enough room to slide 2 fingers in for comfort
