This Petting Centre Lets you Pet Dogs for just Rs 200!

Are you among those who would stop abruptly on the road to pet a dog that has been taken out for a walk? Do pooches of all shapes, colors and sizes bring out the “Awww!” in you? Are you a dog lover but can’t keep one at home? And do you ever wonder if there was a place that could let you play and pet dogs and cats (I am partial towards dogs) without a worry in the world?

If you’ve checked on even two of the above questions, then this pet daycare centre in Marol is soon going to become your haven.

Pawfect Life lets you pet as many dogs and cats you like without having to worry about upsetting their owners. What’s more, all the pets at the centre are vaccinated so you can have a ball for just Rs200 an hour.

The owner of Pawfect Life, 29-year-old Niharika Virmani says that it’s her love for animals and the lessons that she learned “the true meaning of bond, loyalty, trust, love, and protection”. She has five house dogs — a chow chow, a husky, a bull mastiff, a pug and an indie to give the other pets some company.

She started the centre in 2015 as a boarding facility for pets but she soon realized that if people were allowed to play with the dogs at the centre, it would make both the parties happy and be a win-win situation for animal lovers and the pets.

“Once I started running the boarding facility, I realized that there are many people who love dogs but unfortunately they are unable to have one during to a variety of genuine reasons. This made me extend my passion by opening a dedicated petting centre for all those dog lovers out there,” says Niharika.

However, if you want to pet the pooches here, you have to follow certain rules.

“Feeding dogs here is an absolute no-no,” Niharika says. Every dog at the facility has its own specifications when it comes to diet and so visitors are not allowed to feed them anything.

Also, not more than 10 visitors are allowed at the centre at a time. “We request visitors to book slots in advance,” says Niharika. “The response has been so overwhelming that on several weeks we have to turn visitors away as all our slots get filled up really fast,” she adds. College students make for most of her weekday clients while office-goers make for the most of the weekend clients.

I don’t know about you guys, but this is going to be my favourite haunt on weekends. I have already booked my date with the pooches for this weekend, have you?
