In our quest to visit as many quirky cafes as possible in Seoul we head over to the famed dog café "Bau Haus" 바우하우스 to play with some furry four legged friends. The café is located just outside Hapjeong Station between exits 3 and 4, not too far from Hongdae. After initially thinking it was closer to Hongdae, we first had a little bit of trouble finding it, although it's new location is easy to locate once you have the proper directions.

Much like the cat cafe in Hongdae, there is no entry fee at Bau Haus dog café, but every person is expected to purchase a beverage inside. Drinks range from juices and milkshakes to tea and coffees. These drinks are between 6000-8000 won each (close to $6-8 USD). This is the 'price you pay' for the privileged to interact with the animals.
The dogs in the cafes come in all breeds and sizes, from miniature poodles to golden retrievers, with a few strange breeds thrown in for good measure. One of the dogs was the size of bear but played around - and loved attention - as if it were a gentle giant. When you have a room filled to the brim with as many dogs, as in this cafe, quirky behavior is bound to ensue. One of the tinniest little male dogs was in hot pursuit of a much larger female partner (at least double its size) for a little humping action. Each attempt by this little stallion was thwarted by the female who clearly had no interest; yet, that didn't stop this little guy who we affectionately named 'little humper.'
One of our favorite parts of visiting the dog cafe was having the ability to freely roam about the room, in which the tables are all situated along the perimeter, allowing ourselves the opportunity to freely play with the dogs. Some of the dogs were more active running, playing and engaging with others; whereas, a few were completely docile sleeping amid all of the commotion.
One thing we noticed in particular, was that all the dogs are very friendly and comfortable around strangers, so much so that many of them will climb on to your lap within minutes of you arriving there. Some of the sneakier dogs will also climb onto your table in search of treats, which can be purchased on site. There is no faster way to make a new best friend, when it comes to cats or dogs, than to have a plethora of treats ready for disposal.
The Dog House cafe is just one of many quirky types of cafes one can find in Seoul, South Korea. There are also cat cafes, sheep cafes, doll house cafes and wedding cafes. Whether you want to pet an animal or play make believe dress-up, there is something for every taste.
Overall, as pet lovers, we had a wonderful time sipping on coffee and playing with dogs. The Bau Haus is a great way to spend an afternoon in Seoul, and we both highly recommend it. The hardest part, for us, was leaving knowing we couldn't take one of these cute dogs back home as a pet:
유명한 개 카페에 우리가 머리를 서울에서 가능한 한 많은 독특한 카페를 통해 방문하는 우리의 탐구에서 "바우 하우스"바우 하우스 일부 모피 네 다리 친구와 함께 재생할 수 있습니다.
카페는 너무 멀리 홍대에서 종료 3과 4 사이에 역하지 합정역 외부에 위치하고 있습니다. 그것의 새로운 위치는 당신이 적당한 방향을 한 번해서 쉽게 찾을 수 있지만 처음에는 홍대 더 가까이했다 생각하면, 우리는 먼저, 문제를 찾는 조금 있었다.
많은 홍대 고양이 카페처럼,이 바우 하우스 독 카페에서 참가비는 없지만, 모든 사람 안에 음료를 구입할 것으로 예상된다. 음료 주스와 밀크 셰이크에서 차와 커피에 이르기까지 다양. 이 음료는 6000-8000 사이의 각 (가까이 $ 6-8 USD) 원하고 있습니다. 이 동물과 상호 작용하는 특권에 대해 '당신이 지불하는 가격'입니다.
이 작은 종마하여 각 시도는 분명히 전혀 관심이 없었 여성에 의해 방해되었다; 그러나, 그것은 우리가 애정이라는 이름이 작은 녀석 멈추지 않았다 '작은 humper을. "
Now we are at Bauh House cafe near Hapjeong station where you can come and play with all kinds of dogs.
How many friends do you have now? Two so far.
The dog cafe is very similar to the cat cafe. You come in and order a drink basically and that allows you to stay as long as you want. Drinks are a little bit more than normal but 'hey' you get to play with dogs.
This one has beautiful eyelashes. Look at you.
That one is so tiny. Bring him here.
