Beagle doesn't drink a lot of coffee either. Makes her hyper.

She would get along fine with other dogs in the cafe, as long as they were her size or smaller. If they were big males, she would bully them mercilessly.

I would have. I loved doing new things with my dog because his reactions were always so much fun to watch. I remember one time at Christmas when I took him out walking around our small town. Some guy was playing bagpipes and my dog sat himself in front with his head cocked completely to one side watching the entire time the guy was playing. I had to hand it to the guy - he didn't skip a beat. That couldn't have been easy with a large Doberman watching so intently.

Later on in the day, we passed a store window where the owners had a toy train going round on a train track. My dog put his paws up on the ledge and followed the train going around with his head - other people thought it was hysterical.

As long as there were no aggressive dogs at the dog cafe, I know my dog would have enjoyed the daylights out of himself. And I would have had fun watching him have fun. Well worth the $22.

there's no disagreement that cats and dogs are different in showing affection........cats are just different about it.......they do, though, and when they pass on, the hurt is still the same..........

And, yet, another way to part people and their money. I have both cats and a dog, always have had either or both, but I find this a bit goofy.

Everyone knows family is so important. Why no 'Mother in law Restaurants', you can take your mother in law out for $40/hr, someone else will clean up. A restaurant with no knives.

If I am going to spend money on such silliness, I would rather donate it to the SPCA.

I figured I would have owed it to my dog. When you do tracking and Search and Rescue with your dog, you depend on the dog. Completely. That means you two have to have a bond. And we sure did. I figure my dog had to stay inside while I worked all day, do Obedience training he didn't particularly like, and would have laid down his life to protect me (I had at least two occasions where his actions made a difference), so the least I could do would be to provide him with a little fun in his life. I didn't just have a dog. I had a partner.

I spent money on decent food for him, brought him to the vet when he needed it, paid for his cancer treatments, paid for training, paid for equipment for training, paid for shows, and paid through the nose for a place to live with a yard. So what's $22 more bucks?

There are lots of fun, yet free or low-cost, ways to entertain dogs. A café is more for the human than the dog. Dogs would prefer to run around with each other rather than have to behave in a restaurant.
