*UPDATED* Dog Boarding In Singapore: The Largest List Of Dog Hotels And How To Pick One!


Holidays abroad are a much needed time for our relaxation from work, and also considered as an allocated time for family bonding. For most of us, this unfortunately also means that we’d have to leave our Doggy companions behind. It does not take a genius to figure out that these furry creatures are by no means able to care for themselves—Please do not leave your Pets unattended to while you are away!

Are You Boarding Your Pet Dog For The First Time?

So here we all are, scrolling through our Internet browsers, scrupulously going through the immense list of available Dog boarding facilities and services in Singapore. Quite frankly, there are plenty to choose from, but what deems as a reputable or safe haven for our Canine friends?



Picking The Right Boarding Facility


This task proves to be rather daunting for many first timers. Just like meeting a stranger for the first time, certain issues only surface after a full experience. On top of that, there are personal issues of separation anxiety, safety worries, and also the guilt you may face from leaving your beloved furry friend behind for a period of time.

Ten Questions — These problems naturally boil down to mutual trust; but how are we supposed to entrust our Furbabies to…for lack of better words— a bunch of strangers? Before we go with what our guts tell us, we’d often question them (and ourselves) the following TEN basic (but extremely important) questions to further aid as assurance when picking a Dog boarding facility or Dog Hotel:

1.  Do they have cameras installed for 24hr viewing?
If not, would they be sending me daily updates of my Dog?

2. Is there a Mandatory Flea/Mite check and administration before boarding of every Dog?

3. Are there working staffs on standby, even during the night?

4. Are they able to accommodate to my Dog’s special needs (i.e. medical assistance, feeding time)

5. If my Dog is not used to socializing with others, will they be able to provide private care?

6. Are outdoor activities/playtime/walks included?

7. Do they offer viewing of premises before you commit to bookings and payment?

8. What are the reviews of the particular facility by other Pet owners?

9. Are the rooms/facility air-conditioned?

10. When you meet them: Are the staffs friendly?

Trusting reviews — Reviews from fellow Pet owners can go a long way, if you come across one bad review out of 10 good ones for one establishment— it may be passable (depending on the extremities of review). However, chancing upon 2 or more is a definite red flag in our eyes.

Schedule A Viewing — More importantly, always schedule for a viewing of the premises with your pooch before committing to a booking, and observe how the staff and handlers get along with your Doggo— Customer service and bonding efforts can tell us a lot about the boarding facility.

Cleanliness & Hygiene — Keep your eyes peeled on cleanliness and upkeep of the place too – Because if they aren’t bothered about providing a clean and safe temporary abode, how are they supposed to manage the well-being of your Pooch? Now that you’re ready with your arsenal of questions, let us present our findings on the available services!
