If you're a fan of coffee, dogs, or pizza, you might be interested in checking out a new event taking place in Vancouver on Sunday that's combining all three.
With B.C. now in Stage 3 of its COVID-19 restart plan, this outdoor, dog-friendly activity in Yaletown dubbed "Sunday Strolls" is looking to reunite the city's dog lovers, while enjoying some tasty treats along the way.
Dog owners and their pups (as well as dog lovers who don't have their own pup to bring along) are invited to drop by Sciué Caffé on Sunday, July 26 at 11 a.m., where the socially-distanced fun will kick off with a fresh cup of drip coffee and pizza - for both the humans and doggos.
Attendees will then set off on a guided, 15-minute walk accompanied by AnimalKind dog trainer, Sarah from Yaletown Dog Training, before ending up at Coopers Park, where dogs will have the opportunity to play and connect with their fellow canine pals.
The event is organized by PawSwap, a Vancouver-based app for dog owners that challenges the notion behind ‘No Dogs Allowed’ signs - its mission is to "plan, promote, and inspire events that are more inclusive of our four-legged best friend" - in partnership with Sciué Italian Bakery Caffé.
Tickets to the Sunday Stroll also include a "swag bag" filled with products from Canadian companies like We Love Van, Earth Rated, Barking Babies, Hoochy Booch, and Sciué Caffé.
This COVID-conscious event comes following PawSwap's Canine Coffee Crawl, originally planned for March but postponed due to the pandemic.
Where: Sciué Italian Bakery Caffé, 126 Davie St
Price: $20 for one dog and one human, plus an additional $12 per extra pup (An optional $5 can be added on at checkout, which will be donated to the AnimalKind BCSPCA.)
