WELCOME TO LET’S TRAVEL DOGETHER, THE FIRST “DOG FRIENDLY TOURISTIC” GUIDE TO MILAN.
INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHORS
“MY DREAM IS BECOMING THAT BEAUTIFUL PERSON MY DOG BELIEVES I AM”.
Benvenuti a Milano (welcome to Milan)! Get ready to discover the many trasures this amazing city has to offer. But before we start our trip DOGether, let me introduce you to myself. My name is Max (better known as the “Dogfather”), in a single Tweet I will describe myself as a dog addict, an incurable dreamer, a web visionary, a tireless traveller, a passionate start-upper (and still a party maker). I live and work in Milan “DOGether” with my beloved “4-legged friend” Pablo (the one with long ears). Travelling with my dog has always been my passion as well as a PAWesome experience of live. A few years ago I decided to transform my love for pets into a real job by creating Dogfather. Our mission is scouting the best “original ideas for dogs and people” all around Italy and share our know how by the power of web and the social networks. We recently decided to create this touristic digital guide to make your visit to Milan “different” and unforgettable, sharing with you the best tips about what’s up in town… for a wonderful “6 legged” experience. Travelling “DOGether” has never been so easy …
“THE GREATNESS OF A NATION AND ITS MORAL PROGRESS CAN BE JUDGED BY THE WAY ITS ANIMALS ARE TREATED”.
Welcome to Milan! My name is Josephine (better known as the Dogmother). Being the newest and latest entry in the Dogfather “pack”, I am the one who has to do the “dirty work”. By “playing the part of the tourist” (my Indonesian origin is actually helping me quite a lot) I am the one who is checking and stressing the “pet friendly” attitude of hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, museums, public transports and testing their real ability to serve the “6-legged” clients travelling DOGether in Milan. My “right wing” and partner in crime is Mr. Pablo (aka “mister cane”), my faithful esquire in every mission, the one I cannot do without since the first second we met. Yes …love at first sight and with “6 legs”.
“I WILL BE YOURS FOREVER, TRUTHFUL AND FAITHFUL, TILL MY LAST HEARTBEAT”. Benvenuti a Milano ! My name is Pablo (the 4-legged better known as “Pablone”), I am the CIO “chief innovation officer” of Dogfather, a young and innovative Italian project striving for the social integration of pets. Max & Josephine (the ones with short ears and no tails) are my “2-legged best friends” and co-founders of Dogfather. We do love travelling “DOGether” around the world and for this reason we decided to create this first and unique guide to Milan, sharing with you all the best our city has to offer: hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, malls, events, products, services, experiences … in other words all what can create the condition for a better “6 legged life”.
WHY MILAN ?
“THAT LITTLE PLACE CALLED HOME”. Milan is our city, where we live, work and enjoy our “6 legged” life, strictly DOGether. We decided to wait for Expo 2015 before publishing this guide, confident this could be the first Universal Expo to welcome dogs and not only people… then a great opportunity for social integration, enhancement and evolution…but we were wrong. As the matter of facts dogs (as well as other pets) will not be admitted inside the exposition area. On the contrary Expo will also be a city event with many activities and happenings around town which you will be able to join with your furry friends. Yes we agree… it could be the perfect opportunity to create a perfect world… but let’s try to be PAWesitive and focus on opportunities. Milan is a “pet friendly” city where you can do almost everything with your pooch, although some attractions are still forbidden to dogs … but in these cases we will suggest to you how to ride out and make the best choices for yourself and your furry friends …
WHY A DIGITAL “6-LEGGED” GUIDE ?
“IF SOMETHING DOES NOT EXIST THEN MAKE IT”. Unfortunately most of the travelling guides are NOT pet friendly (in the sense that they do not take in consideration any specific 4-legged needs and wishes). We therefore set to work to create the first digital, touristic and free guide to Milan, from the dog’s perspective (and his 2-legged escort). And here we are: Let’s Travel DOGether Milan. Just use this guide as your key to the city and have fun. For any further info or suggestion you might need … don’t be shy and don’t just bark. Drop us a message the way you prefer (mail, contact form, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest), give us a call (+39 348 8602301) and we will be glad to help you, whatever you need for a better “6-legged” experience in Milan.
HOW IS THE GUIDE ORGANIZED ?
“LIFE IS LIKE A CHOCOLATE BOX, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU GONNA GET”. Our “doggy bible” is a very simple, practical and (we hope) useful web service. Through easy to follow “pills of information”, pictures and videos, we will drive you around town, giving you the opportunity to choose your itineraries depending on your specific interests and with no (bad) surprise. Please note that all “certified points of interest” have been previously and secretly tested by us in person (what we call “mistery dog operation”) and are recognizable by our door sticker at the main entrance. In this guide you will find the “best of breed” of pet friendly hotels, bars, shops, parks, attractions, events … and much more. You will be able to browse the contents by this web site, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Ploonge and Bauwow. You will also find our suggestions about what you should not miss, as well as our alternative options in those cases when your furry friends are not allowed to enter. For this reason a special “off room” service has been created, in collaboration with our certified partners, so that, with a simple click on our site, you will be able to book your personal dog sitter, a dog massage, a grooming service (and much more) when you need and where you want. You will be able to plunge into culture while your furry friend is having great time at the park with his new 2-legged friend. Isn’t this PAWesome ??? A specific section has also been dedicated to useful information (public transport, regulation and conduct) and we also established a direct “line” with a “pets lawyer” in order to manage any “particular situation” involving you and your 4-legged friend.
WHY A FREE GUIDE ?
HAPPYNESS FOR EVERYONE … “FOR A BETTER 6-LEGGED WORLD … ”. Being happy should be a right and not something to pay for. Let’s travel DOGether is not a business project but a concrete blessing for a better world. A different way to involve people, companies, institution to the well beings of animals. For its strong and PAWesitive social impact, the project has been endorsed by the Council of Milan. You can have the guide for free but your spontaneous “social engagement” will be deeply appreciated. Just help us to “spread the word” with a simple Tweet, a post on Facebook, a mail to your friends. A “little contribution” for a “better 6-legged world”.
“THE FUTURE BELONGS TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THE GREATNESS OF THEIR DREAMS”. We do believe in the mission of a better “6 legged world”. If you share the greatness of this dream, let’s work DOGether. Write us, call us or just connect by Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin or Pinterest. DOGether we are stronger and we can make the difference.
