A new speed dating event for single dog owners and dog lovers is coming to Cardiff, Dog Furiendly is inviting single ‘pawrents’ looking for love to join them for their very first evening of Furst Dates.

Dog Furiendly, a travel and event service for dog owners, has announced a new speed dating event for single dog owners and lovers. The ‘Furst Dates’ Speed Dating event will take place on Sunday 9th February at 13:00 at the Libertine Cocktail Bar in Cardiff. All participants will receive 10 ‘Furst’ dates, a goody bag from Burns Pet Nutrition with treats to greet other dogs and a mini-guide filled with dog-friendly dating ideas. The first minute of the date will see dog lovers get acquainted with the dog, and the other 4 minutes to get acquainted with each other.Participants will receive a cue sheet of tail-wagging topics to break the ice and a score sheet to mark down initial thoughts. At the end of the night, all matches are shared with each other.

According to research from Wag, 80% of dog owners said that their dog’s reaction to a new love interest would affect their feelings toward that person.

Founder of Dog Furiendly, Adele Pember said: “Meeting the dog is a very important part of the dating process for dog owners, and their reaction is important. To save dog owners from showing a photo on their phone, the dog is there in the flesh and can help them with the decision!”

“We’re hoping this is the ‘furst’ of many others as we plan to bring it to other areas across the UK throughout the year.’
