A haven for dog lovers like me! This place have two zones- the human & dog zone. The zones are two separated rooms across each other.

HUMAN ZONE
This is where you order your food inclusive of ticket & slot in the dog zone. Their food is ok. Nothing special except that they are named after their dogs and they mostly especialize with milk teas. You can't bring food inside the dog zone aside from milk tea which they can deliver to you.

DOG ZONE
Tgis is where you get to enjoy interacting with their dogs which are properly trained and are accustomed to people. You can touch, play and cuddle with their pets just don't carry and disturb them while asleep. Remember, we are the visitors.

All in all, this is a great place for every age and especially for dog lovers! 128054

Uh-oh not your ordinary cafe. I loved their dog cafe concept. Aside from being a dog lover, I like the staffs the way how they handle their customers. I also loved their wintermelon milktea. Dogs are so adorable, especially this BONNIE 128156 she's so super duper clingy... (heart melts) You guys must try this cafe. I'll be giving 5 stars ayt!

The best way to de-stress! I'm tooooo obsessed with smile. She's too cute. She's lazy but cute. I just can't resist. Reminds me of the famous pug... "Doug the pug". The reason why I want to own one. 128152 I'll see you again, smile 9786

My girlfriend and I are dog lovers. It was our first time and surely we love this place! The dogs are adorable,most were sleeping,I guess they're already exhausted. I recommend you to go earlier. After resting, dogs will be awake and energetic. Try to take some pictures with them (no flash photography), handlers will be courteous to assist you.

We were at the cafe late in the afternoon, while waiting we tried the vader and skye burgers available on the human zone. Good food at a reasonable price.

My favorite was the Vader Burger, on Vader's voice "Welcome to the Bark side" for Star Wars fans you'll get it.

Try and experience fun with dogs. And again Star Wars reference alert. "May the paws be with you"

As a doglover myself, definitely going to a dog cafe will be on top of your list.

Just for 190php, you'll get to play and enjoy with the dogs. btw, it includes a free drink. Well, I ordered the hazelnut one, and it tastes superb! 9786128077🏻

We just really came here for the dogs. Haha! Went here in the afternoon to avoid so much crowd. Pero kahit anong oras ata laging puno dito 128532 And then the dogs are so lively! Lalo na yung mga puppies!!! 128525 At first walang pumupuntang dogs samin kasi they were busy playing to each other, but heres comes Bonnie! The sweetest puppy of them all! 128150128150128150 We didnt have the chance to play with Skye the husky, shes sleeping all throughout our stay there. 128542 Will definitely come back, sana gising na si Skye nun!

My daughter really love dogs so she begged us to visit this place after our quick dinner in Maginhawa.
Fortunately, place wasn't packed that time but most dogs were already tired and sleeping. We paid P190 for the entrance with a free drinks either coffee or tea and you can stay for 2 hours to play and hold the dogs inside.
I was trying to stay long and tried to maximize what I paid for but had an asthma attack due to all fur babies surrounding me 128549 but still I managed to get hold of one fur baby for a pic then immediately went out of the cafe to have my life saving inhaler.
I think one visit for me would be enough. I still love dogs no matter what. 128522

Dooooogggs!!! 10084

Such a bright marketing idea to combine drinks & dogs! I'm sure customers try this place out not really for the snacks/drinks, rather for the dogs! 128054

Entrance fee is P190, inclusive of a drink (tea / coffee) and 2-hour stay at the dog zone. Cool, right? You can interact with about 20 dogs in those 2 hours. Just don't wake up sleeping dogs. 128164128054

We went all the way here from Pasig only to find out that they have a private event so we just stood outside the window and adored the dogs from afar. It was a spontaneous trip so next time we should call on first to check. They could have at least posted something on their social media sites though.

I glared at the girl who was petting the beagle. The look of envy.

Adios! 128111

We liked the place so much it was cozy. Having interactions with dogs are nice and brings a relaxing feeling. They serve you with 1 drink when you enter the area. Just a note for a dog to come to you its better that you know their names.

Where do I begin? This is definitely the most fun dog encounter I've had. My buddy and I did not come here for the food, it's the dogs we're after. The Php190 entrance fee is good for a 2 hour stay in the dog zone and inclusive of a drink. I forgot what we chose for our drinks there was nothing special about them anyway.

Upon entering we were offered to put our bags and shoes inside a locker. The dog zone was more spacious compared to the human zone. It smelled fresh. Kudos to the attentive staff for immediately cleaning the dogs' pee or poop. So I have no problem with hygiene at all. The dogs can freely roam and run around. Yup, no leashes. I felt a little safer because they were friendly and trained well they can even do addition. Small dogs like to cuddle and sleep onto lucky people's lap while the big dogs were the hyper and fighting ones.

We can't force dogs to hang out with us. Don't be disheartened if the dogs don't approach you right away. Be patient. To be honest I was scared of touching them then I was surprised Coco suddenly approached me and decided to sleep on my lap *takes many selfies with the dog carefully* we spent the hours taking pictures and playing with the dogs. We loved the golden retrievers and Skye the husky. Martha the Irish setter was a favorite because of her very shiny fur. And of course, the super uber very cute little tiny Smile the pug!!!! It's ironic that she was named Smile but her actions and the way she sits depict the opposite. Did I mention she's cute?

Overall the experience was worth the time. It can relieve stress. There's nothing to regret about it. I've found peace in this place. I would definitely be back soon to play with the barkin buddies. My concern is that I noticed there were no water dispensers around what if the dogs wanted to drink water? I think the dispensers were inside the separate room.

From Aurora Blvd. ride a jeep or even ride the LRT, disembark at Katipunan crossing. Climb, cross left and walk until the first street. Ride a trike and tell them to take you to Barkin Blends. I recommend going on a weekday to avoid too much crowd on a Saturday or Sunday.

After our date with the cats in Miao Café, hubby decided to visit Barkin’ Blends to see what I like the most. Will it be the cats or the dogs? For the longest time, we have dogs in our house, but I always get stray cats too. 128523

We had a very hard time looking for a parking space. They have a very limited parking inside the building so better bring extra patience. Barkin’ Blends is located on the second floor of the building and they occupy two units – one for Humans [waiting area] and one for Dogs [Dog Zone]. Here are the steps before you can enter the Dog Zone:

1. Go to the Human area.
2. Fall in line and pay 190 pesos each. You’ll get 1 free drink and you can order other foods as well with extra charge.
3. You’ll need another extra patience here ‘cause you’ll have to wait for 1-2 hours before you can enter the Dog Zone.
4. Wait for your name to be called.
5. Once called, you can play and cuddle with the dogs for maximum of 2 hours.

After 1 hour, our names were called by Kuya. We went to the Dog zone and changed our footwear to the slipper provided, gave my bag to Kuya and sanitized. They have a small locker inside, but they don’t have keys so you have to be mindful with your things inside your bag.

Weeeeh! Lots of dogs inside, but they looked so haggard and stressed. They keep on walking, trying to ignore people and their hands. Some dogs wanted to sleep, but they cannot. I can feel their exhaustion. We left the place after 15 minutes. I love dogs and I cannot bear the sight anymore. 128549128549128549

5 stars for the hard working dogs.
3 stars for the waiting time.
2 stars for the management.

Who let the dogs out!!! Woof! Woof! Woof!128054128054128054

Went here few weeks ago. After our food trip at Third Cup cafe and at Wok Dis Way in Katipunan, we go upstairs of the J&R Concon Centre at 91 Rosa Alvero St. Loyola Heights Q.C. I saw this finally, Barkin Blends Dog Cafe. Cafe for dog lovers.

I don't have a pet dog but I appreciate dogs because they are known as "Men's best friend ".128054128106.

The cafe was small and it's really like a dog world for me. Then I saw there "Pupcakes". It means cupcake with a dog design. There so many design to choose from. I found this one cute so I bought it for around 100 pesos. I'm a cupcake lover but I don't know why I have this guilty feeling, can't eat my pupcake thoroughly , I imagined I'm eating an innocent cute little puppy so I decided to store it on my fridge. It's so cute to eat128054

I love dogs & this place feels like heaven for me. I love everything about this place. The food was okay, we ordered pasta which is not that nice, but the Vader Burger (Black Bun) tastes really nice. After eating, we went to the Dog Zone. There's a lot of dogs to play with, the place is not over crowded. You can play with the dogs and carry them (be sure to ask for assistance) The dogs were so playful. The 190PHP ticket to the Dog Zone includes 1 choice of drink that you can even bring inside. I chose rock, salt & cheese, and it was delish!

The only reason I went to Barkin Blends was the barking dogs. The dog trainers are nice minsan masnakakaaliw pa sila sa dog. The cashier was a bit masungit baka toxic lang? 128054128054128054 Too bad you have to wait for your turn for almost an hour but you get to stay in the dog area for also an hour. So win win ang waiting!
