We Are The Furballs: Singapore’s First Dog Cafe At Bugis+ For A Paw-fect Day Out

We Are The Furballs

It’s an uncontested fact that animals are a great form of therapy, and dogs, in particular, are loyal, angelic creatures that bring humankind sunshine and rainbows on the darkest of days. Some might even admit that snuggling with these furry ones is a better mood booster than cuddling our human counterparts.

If you’ve always longed for a furry companion but have met resistance from family members along the way, take heart – you still buy an hour or two of unconditional love and sloppy kisses down at We Are The Furballs, Singapore’s first dog cafe at Bugis+. or unwind with a cup of iced tea while racing your friends to reach retirement age in the Game of Life at their in-house cafe.

Upon entering the cafe, you’ll find it segregated into two sections: the Playhouse and the cafe. The Playhouse is where the cafe’s 9 energetic resident doggos roam free and await cuddles from visitors. 

The dogs you can cuddle with include:

  1. Bui Bui, the French Bulldog – aka the leader of the pack
  2. Yuki-Chan, the reserved Pomeranian
  3. Waffles, the Corgi
  4. Duchess, the Kings Charles Spaniel
  5. Slinky, the Dachshund
  6. Lulu, the friendly Toy Poodle
  7. Mochi, the Mini Maltese
  8. Lola, the Mini Pomeranian
  9. Woolly, the West Highland White Terrier

At the Playhouse, there is ample space for lounging on the floor or on their benches if you prefer a better vantage point. You can also purchase some dog treats at $3/packet to reward the dogs for being good boys. 

Most of the canines respond to basic commands like “sit” or “paw” and even “bang” especially when you have a yummy treat in your hand, but do remember to reward them after. 

Board game and beverage offerings at the cafe

After an intense session of meet-and-greet, unwind with another cup of iced tea while racing your friends to reach retirement age in the Game of Life at their in-house cafe. We recommend the highly-rated Counting Sheep Tea made with chamomile flowers, lemon balm and peppermint leaves, or the Fruit Splash Tea made with refreshing apples, strawberries and elderberries.

Chit-chat with your friends or loan a board game for your pleasure free-of-charge. Some of their more famous board games include The Game of Life, Taboo and Reverse Charades.
