MORE than 150 adorable dogs are expected to descend on a Taunton venue to take part in a pup-up event.

The Pup-Up Cafe is set to come to The Hideout, on Saturday, May 11.

This is the first event of its kind to be held in the town, following the launch in Exeter.

The first event in town will be breed-specific - this time focusing on sausage dogs.

Around 150 Dachshund and 300 humans are expected to turn up on the day.

Tickets need to be purchased before hand, which are £5 for those bringing a dog, and £8 for those who are not.

After booking your ticket, dog owners will be given a one-hour slot where a table will be reserved.

Marcus Ackford, of Pup Up Cafe, said: "If you are bringing a puppy you will have a table reserved for you for at least an hour of the day.

"Your reserved time slot will be emailed to you prior to the event. Regular humans will have suggested arrival times as to not overcrowd the venue.

"Other than that feel free to hang around - other tables are available at a first come first served basis but it will be very busy."

The events are breed specific to keep everyone safe - as some breeds are very different in size.

Mr Ackford added: "Now, it’s all well and good having all kinds of dogs around but when you start mixing St. Bernard’s with Miniature Dachshunds, some things just don’t go to plan.

"Our breed specific events are a great way to meet fellow owners, have a friendly coffee and chat about all things training, personality, breeding and everything in between.

"The photos are always brilliant too, whenever you get 50 of the same breed in the same space it leads to some beautiful photo opportunities."
