Tinder is hoping to spark romance between dog lovers with dog-friendly dating experiences across the UK. Pop-up pub experiences are coming to London, Manchester and Edinburgh, where people will get to connect with people who share their love of animals. Research says that for young British people, 91% say it would be a deal-breaker if their dog doesn't
like someone, and these pop-up experiences have the potential to help people avoid awkwardness down the line.
The Bark & Spark will be taking over three public houses, The Dog House in London, The Dog and Partridge in Manchester and Hare of the Dog in Edinburgh. On-site, dog lovers will get to enjoy a Tinder-inspired menu.
To make it easy for Tinder users to find other animal owners in the app, the dating app offers an Animal Parent title in Explore.
