Singapore’s first and only pug petting cafe, What the Pug is located in a shophouse on Haji Lane. This doggy haven is specially designed for fans of the endearingly wrinkled canine breed.

As its name suggests, what you’ll find at this dog petting cafe is none other than pudgy pugs of different colours, from light brown to black. Age-wise, you’ll find pugs between 1-year-old to 12-year-old (the cafe houses more than eight pugs). According to reviews, these are affectionate doggos that would snuggle up to you even without expecting any treats. It’s likely that you’ll get more than enough time to cuddle up with these chonky creatures.
