Ola Loutfi established the first cafe for dogs in Egypt offering dog owners a place to go with their four-legged friends.

Ola Loutfi has two dogs and could not find any places to go to with her four-legged friends and meet other dog owners. So she opened the Dog Cafe in 6 October City in Giza governorate in May.

Inspired by her son's company that sells nutritious cooked meals for dogs and cats, she came up with the idea to establish the first cafe for dogs in Egypt.
