"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our life whole"
Dogs are not only the most loyal animal but they are also the best therapist. If you are feeling low and meet a dog it automatically refreshes your mood and makes you feel positive.

How Did The Idea Pop?
Mr. Varlani gives the credit for the idea to their children as they thought of introducing Bhopal with a pet cafe.
"This idea was given to me by my son and daughter. My son who is currently studying in Mumbai saw the concept of a dog cafe. Pawppiness is the first dog cafe in Central India and in India, only five cities have dog cafes. People come here and play with dogs love them. People who cannot afford, can come here to love them. Since we have many breeds over here, so people who have dogs can also come to cherish and enjoy different breeds of dogs."
How Many Breeds Are There?
"We have four breeds of dogs here all are friendly."
They have a Husky named Sasha and she is very adorable and loving. She would jump in excitement when she sees you.
A beagle named Bubu is shy but very naughty when it comes to grabbing treats.
The pugs Archie and Cola are so loving and won't leave your side till you are there.
The silent spectators of the cafe are Shih Tzu, Pepper, and Whiskey.

Are you a dog lover?
One cannot keep pets so responsibly and love them as their own children until they have love and empathy towards dogs. Mr. Varlani is a pet lover and has 3 other pets at home.
"Apart from the dogs, you see at the cafe I have three more dogs at home. A German Shephard, a golden retriever, and a labrador. My whole family loves dogs and they all treat them as their children. We all live together like a happy family."
What Is The Routine Of The Dogs After The Cafe?
The timings of the cafe are from 12:30-8:30. The dogs have a routine after the cafe. After all, it's their time to Chillax.
"After the cafe, all the dogs go to home with me in my car. Just like they have the freedom to move here and there in the cafe, we do not keep them in any sort of cages when they are at home. They eat, they have fun with us after the cafe."
Taking responsibility for pets is not easy. Just like children they need love, care, and pampering. Let's see what are the challenges involved.
"Dogs are just like our own kids. They need pampering and care just like a kid wants. My whole family takes great care of them. We take them for timely grooming sessions, and look after their health just like our babies."
