The Pet Shop: Daegu's one-stop shop for dogs, cats, and more

Dog ownership in Korea is becoming more popular, yet there are still relatively few off-leash dog parks in Korea's major cities. "The Pet Shop" in Daegu's Bangogae area is a bright spot in the growing pet care market; it offers many great amenities, including an off-leash dog park, an air-conditioned indoor play area, an extensive shop, a cafe, and a groomer.

The Pet Shop is not just for dogs; they sell many products for cats and small mammals, too.  Some of the products on offer are beds, cages, and crates of all sizes; high-quality food and treats; clothing; toys and cat trees; grooming supplies; leashes for cats and dogs of all sizes; and strollers. One of the best features of the place is that at this writing, it does not sell pets; thus, it's not supporting puppy mills.
The outdoor play area is large and secure, with some grassy areas, a pool, shaded areas for resting, and plenty of free water on tap for thirsty pooches. A purchase in the shop or at the cafe will grant free entry into the play area for as long as you wish.  An air-conditioned indoor area has large windows facing the outdoor playground, and seating for those who want to cool their heels with a beverage and watch the dogs play. Beverage choices at the cafe are non-alcoholic, and include hot and iced coffees, teas, ades, smoothies, and sweet snacks that range in price from 2.000-7.000 KW.
Finding The Pet Shop is easy.  From the subway, take Line 2 (Green line) to Bangogae Station.  Go out Exit 3, and walk to the intersection (Keunjanggil and Dalgubeoldaero).  Cross the street, turn right, and walk down Keunjanggil for about 5-6 minutes.  Make a soft left when you reach the next busy intersection (Myeongseoro/Naedang Intersection).  The Pet Shop will be on your left.  There is limited fee parking out front.
The Pet Shop's Facebook page has a link to a map as well as some photos of customers' pets at the facility. You can access the page HERE . Let us know if you visit, and what you think of The Pet Shop! We'd love to see photos and hear about your experience.

  1. The address isn't showing up on the map posted. The directions and photo is perfect, but the written address bring up something else. I wasn't for sure if you've double checked it since posting it, but don't want other readers going somewhere else. This is a great article and I'm thankful for it! We'll be going here this weekend!
