The Oracle shopping centre will be turning dog-friendly from the 1st August 2022. To help celebrate and kick start their new chapter, we’ll be hosting an Open Air Dog Cafe.
Join us between 1pm – 8pm on Monday 1st August at the RiversIde. Drop in for a Pupuccino from our famous Pop + Bark Pupuccino Bar, freshly baked dog treats by Rudi’s The Doggy Bakery and a chance to meet some new friends!
There will also be a pop up doggy boutique by The Crafty Dog Co and lots of fun photo opportunities to discover!
A fun social competition will run all day so if you upload a cute photo or video to your social tagging @popandbark @oraclereading you’ll be in with a chance of winning a fab prize.
This one-off event will be FREE to attend and open to all dog owners and dog lovers alike. So whether you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids during the holidays or you want to kick back with a drink after work with your pup – come along!
Pop + Bark are the doggy experts, famous for hosting café experience, doggy discos and parties for the furry and the fabulous. Having joined forces to host an outdoor dog café last September by the Riverside where over 250 dogs attended, we’re back again!
After it’s success last Summer, The Oracle has decided to open their door to shoppers and their dogs – permanently! You can now shop, dine and drink at The Oracle with your furry best friend in tow. High paws all round.
Doggy Do’s and Don’ts of attending include…
- Do bring your friendly, well socialised & vaccinated dogs
- Do keep all dogs on a short lead at all times
- Do keep a close watch over your dogs
- Do be extra cautious around the Riverside
- Do not leave dog mess behind – bag and bin it
- Do not bring aggressive or anti-social dogs
- Do not bring dogs in season
If you don’t have your own dog then pop on down to The Oracle and you may just get to see lots of dogs – all breeds are welcome – and enjoy a doggy cuddle or two.
It’s the perfect way to celebrate Reading’s iconic shopping centre becoming dog-friendly. You can soak up all those feel-good Summertime vibes with your friends, family and your dog, too.
