New Delhi gets its first dog cafe, where dog owners and their pals can enjoy a dish from a customised menu.

NEW DELHI, India (Reuters) - Check out New Delhi's first ever dog cafe called Puppychino, complete with a customised menu for humans and their four-legged pals.

Enjoy a pizza, while your dog has a 'snoopy spaghetti' or indulges in a gourmet muffin in the play area.

Owner Mallika Tandon says you won't have to feel bad about leaving your dog behind when you eat out anymore.

"Whenever I used to go out I used to feel very guilty leaving them behind at home, all alone. So then I thought of opening a cafe where dogs could go out... hang out with their own dogs and play with other dogs as well."

Visitors both human and K-9 are giving it their paw of approval.

"We can spend some time, walk around the market. It's more going to be like a playhouse for the dogs. So a cafe-cum-playhouse, which is great," said Ms Ishita, a visitor.

With birthday packages, grooming tools and treats for sale, you may have to ask for a doggie bag.
