Dating With Dogs Is Officially a Thing and It’s Coming To Your Fave Dog-Friendly Pub

by Hannah Matchett

If you’ve thrown in the towel on the horrific dating scene of 2019 and resigned yourself to a life of solitude with your cavoodle, Shamus, as the ‘only soul mate you need’ – then hear me out.

The National Hotel have joined teams with The Social Dog Company to bring you ‘Dating with Dogs’, a social event that allows you to meet a room full of like-minded singles, and even better – their friggen adorable doggos.

Let’s be clear, this is no speed dating event straight out of ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’. Think of it more as a lit day sesh in a dog park.

And I mean, nothing screams relationship potential like someone with a proven ability to love and care for the four-legged best mate.

On Saturday 27th of July grab your four legged wing-man and head down to The National Hotel in Richmond for an afternoon in their courtyard surrounded by 50 – 60 legends and their dogs.

From 2-4 PM bask in the glory that is a room full of dogs, walking relationship potential, complimentary canapes, and even a free drink on arrival. Of course The National have catered to the puppers so they can absolutely treat it to some doggie doughnuts and pup-cakes. Did I mention there’s also an on-site vet doing complimentary checks?

This event is LGBTQI+ friendly and there are loads of giveaways and prizes.

Booking for this event is essential and I’d get in quick because tickets are almost sold out. Tickets are $49 pp, so hurry and secure yourself a seat in this dog-haven next Saturday by clicking here.
