A new cafe for humans and hounds is heading to Middlesbrough.
Doggie Diner will be opening up its fourth venue – this time on Teesside.
The canine cafe, which will be based on Marton Road, will have a number of tasty treats for pooches and owners.
Four-legged friends will be able to get their paws on food and drink from the pooches’ menu.
They could sink their teeth into a pupcake, woofin or dog sausage, or go all out with a Doggie Afternoon Tea, before washing it all down with a Woof Dog Beer.
There’s also drinks and food on offer for owners too.
Adrienne Dickson, 47, who is one of three franchise owners, said: “I can’t wait.
“We’re really excited to bring our diner to Middlesbrough and be the first dog cafe in the town.
“Our cafes have a real community hub.”
The cafe intends to run a number of events, including workshops for kids, a book club and breed meet ups.
As well as having a play pen for man’s best friend to socialise in, there’s also the opportunity to have doggie birthday parties.
Fear not if you don’t have a four-legged friend of your own, as you’re also welcome to the cafe.
Adrienne, who is from Sunderland, added: “People can come without dogs. It’s open to everybody.”
Doggie Diner began in Sunderland in 2015, before the franchise expanded to open up cafes in Blackhall and Durham.
The Sunderland diner has been voted top dog when it comes to being animal friendly.
It scooped the most dog friendly cafe/restaurant in the UK in the Kennel Club’s Be Friendly Dog awards.
It is hoped the Middlesbrough cafe will be open for pups and their pals in the first week of December.
