Dog loving singles, meeting your next date just got a lot more appealing. While cuddling up with your boo every night, going out on long walks at sunset, and sappily speaking to your partner can make for a great time, going on dates with humans can be fun too (or so I’ve heard).
The Social Dog Company brings you Dating With Dogs, an event offering the ultimate match making experience. Dates in August have been set for Sydney and Canberra, you can swipe through heaps of cute singles (and let’s be real their even cuter dogs) IRL. So take a break from all of the apps, and bring you’re best friend along for a dating paw-wow.
Dating With Dogs does often include Melbourne (you unlucky folks may have just missed it, with an event on last Saturday, July 27th. But keep an eye out, as they usually happen regularly enough at The National Hotel.
The series of events features dog-themed cocktails, cheeky games, and even fun treats for your dog. Moscow Mutts, Espresso-Paw Tini’s and Canine Cosmos will be on deck. How cute is that? For your doggo there will be doughnuts, cakes, and cupcakes, all of which are obviously dog-friendly. Or stock up on some additional dog food at home, just incase a little rendezvous is arranged.
But the cuteness absolutely doesn’t stop there. There’s even a complimentary vet check at the event. Crying.
If you don’t have a dog, or say your dog isn’t one for mingling, you can fly solo. Typically, Dating With Dogs draws in a crowd of 40-60 singles, and about half show up with out a furry friend. So, all dog lovers are welcome.
This is like the best way to meet a potential partner. First of all, emotional support dogs are a thing for a reason. If you’re on to get super tongue tied when talking to a potential mate, you’ll have your dog with you to do some of the flirty leg work. Also, let’s say you meet someone who you don’t quite hit it off with, there’s a heaps of excuses one can use to get out of a situation when they have their dog with them.
The owner of The Social Dog Company, Tatum Brown, claims, “It is like day-drinking at the dog park.” I don’t know about you, but being tipsy at a dog park during the day without judgement sounds like a dream afternoon.
To get in to the boozy dog-day, you’ll need to purchase tickets before hand. These events always sell out, so get in quick and check out all the events/tickets on sale here.
