Barking Lot: The first dog café open in Khobar

Saudi Arabia has now opened its very first Dog café in the Kingdom. Dog owners in Saudi Arabia can now enjoy a cup of coffee with their beloved pet dog at this new café.

The craze for keeping dogs as a pet is also increasing in Saudi Arabia but the main problem is the availability of very few places to take the pet for roaming.

The Barking Lot’s Kuwait owner Dalal Ahmad said, her mind clicked on the idea of opening a dog café in the Kingdom during her last visit to Saudi Arabia.

That was the time when she came to the Kingdom with her dog and she wasn’t allowed to roam with her dog at the beach.

At this point, Dalal Ahmad felt sad for her pet and made up her mind to open a dog café where the people with the dogs can enjoy having coffee without any fear.

The Barking Lot is a coffee shop for all those who own a dog and also for those who do not have any dog.

Inside the Dog café

Inside the café, the dogs are allowed to roam freely while their owners were having a cup of coffee. Some pets were playing around while some were sitting on the lap of their owners waiting to order their drink.

The most amazing thing in the café was there was a separate section for the dogs where they are treated and grooming services is provided to them.
