Dog owners in Rio de Janeiro are reaping the benefits of the city’s first dog restaurant. Lunch and dinner are served at this restaurant and owners can buy pre-made and frozen dog dinners to take home with them.
The restaurant has only been open since December 2010 and word has it that expansion plans for another branch in Sao Paulo are already underway.
The restaurant serves four dishes, each with a different protein source: beef, chicken, fish or lamb. A partial translation of the website says that the meals are 100% natural and preservative-free. “Perfect for dogs with demanding palates” (perfeita para caes com paladar exigente)
