Soon a dog café in Toulouse ? It is in any case the ambition of Claire Plegat and Pauline Filhol : the two young women want to open a tea room and restaurant in the Pink City where you can also have a good time with dogs and even adopt them.

The fourth from France

After the cat bar– located rue Jules-Chalande in two steps from rue Saint-Rome– Toulouse could thus host the fourth dog bar in France. The two young women have just launched a crowdfunding operation for their project.

“We met in a dog park near our house,” says Pauline. It was like love at first sight between us… and between our dogs! »

For those who cannot have dogs

Claire has worked in the restaurant business for a long time, Pauline was in charge of communication with start-ups. But both of them had, in the back of their minds, the desire to do a job that would put them in daily contact with dogs.

The mistresses of Oia and Chewies have been working on their project for many months. A project intended in particular for all those who love dogs and cannot afford to have one at home, for lack of space or means.

dogs to adopt

” HAS canith, there will be dogs permanently, which will also be offered for adoption, explains Pauline. We are going to collaborate with associations of foster families who recover abandoned dogs, because we also want to promote their work. »

Dogs with very varied profiles. “They will sometimes have a complicated past, traumas… We don’t want to open a tea room where you will only find purebred dogs, perfect for taking an Instagram photo! »

Local and organic catering

On the catering side, the two young women want to offer homemade pastries and a large menu of hot and cold drinks. We can also have lunch at noon at canith. “We want to offer a majority of organic and locavore products while respecting the seasonality of the products, says Claire. We also want to limit waste as much as possible. »

Dogs will also have treats available to them. A boutique area with products for man’s best friend will also be on offer.

The two young women, who are looking for premises in the city center, hope to open Canithé in the fall of 2022.
