Back to Mom’s old school cafe at Han’s which located at Upper Thomson Road. Unfortunately, she didn’t know that this is another dog-friendly place to dine in. Of Course, we are only allowed to stay outdoor.

My pawrents had a pretty hectic day. She brought Myers out at 6.30am this morning to walk at Robertson Quay with our PPNG and ended up at Anthesis Cafe for their brunch. Not even more than 5 hours of their precious break, they brought me to Katong Dog Run for Dog Watching desensitization. Then we ended up dined in at Han’s (Upper Thomson Road).
Fish N Chip (S$9.80)
For my auto-focus, I got rewarded some of the fish from that plate.
I had immediately zonked out after I stepped in the room.
Anthesis is a cosy boulangerie, bistro and cafe nestled in Robertson Blue along Robertson Quay, serving up a wide variety of brunch and coffee. Its windy alfresco seats are decorated in a simplistic with wooden tables and metal chairs.

We popped by in the morning after our long walk from Clarke Quay to Robertson Quay. They make the perfect atmosphere for people with dogs although they do not serve with a doggy menu. The human food prices are quite reasonable and its quality speaks up for its value. I must give it a PLUS POINT.

I got some share of poached eggs from Hershey’s Mom. AWESOME.
This is little Hershey with his great focus on his Mom’s plate. Hehehe…
I always love to look away. So many little things and movements around.
Cafe dogging is currently our all times favourite sport. It is not difficult. I just need to DOWN STAY and WATCH DOGS and I will got alots alots of YUM YUM. We have been doing this multiple times at our favourite spot, Paw Petradise Cafe.
Tell you more about me. I have leash reactive towards dogs. How does this actually happen? After the adolescence kicked in, I was very very interested in everything around me. (eg. trees, dogs, pole, grass and etc.) Initially, I just stared at the dog but it had gradually increased the arousal level that caused me to bark and lunge at the later stage. To my inexperience mom, she had definitely missed out THE MOST IMPORTANT BODY LANGUAGE that signalled the very first move. (That’s why she is working double hard now.)
How are we going to get this started? Mommy had tried a lot of different methods like going to the dog run often or standing still like a robot waiting for me to look back at her (which I normally don’t because why should I do that when there are so many interesting things around me.) BUT she has never never given up on me. She googled it on net and came across one video on leash reactive towards dogs that leash pulling can increase arousal level and lead to aggressive barking. So we seek help from Teacher mimi. Then she realised that she had trained wrongly all the while.Teacher mimi told her that loose leash walking and leash reactivity towards dogs have to be trained separately. From then on, all the trainings started.
We had our loose leash training for 5 consecutive days without seeing any dogs (except Myers). Then followed by dog watching at Bishan Park. We didn’t walk over to the dog run. We just stayed at a corner to click for dogs.
Other than this, Aunty Elim suggested cafe dogging to see whether it helps as we can train in the controlled environment by watching dogs outside the cafe instead of going in. This is how Cafe Dogging get started. What do we normally do during our cafe dogging session? It’s simple. A DOWN STAY or SIT STAY will earn a lot of YUMMY treats. A DOWN STAY / SIT STAY + DOG WATCHING will earn a lot of YUMMY BONUS treats.
See how much I have improved in this 2 months. I’m able to do DOWN STAY + FOCUS WORK at mommy.
Of course, I will have random SUPER HIGH VALUE SPECIAL TREATS for my desired behaviours. This is what I earned during one of our Cafe Dogging, LIVER FRUIT CAKE, from Paw Petradise Cafe.
After so many times of Cafe Dogging, this is how close I can DOWN STAY with Mia even though there is one glass door apart.
