Ultimate Guide To Dog-Friendly Places: Hang Out With Your Doggy All Day, Every Day!
Have you had your little pooch begging you with those innocent puppy eyes hoping that you’d bring them along with you? Well, you are not the only one. We too, spend at least 5 minutes every single day at the door assuring them that we’d be back in a few hours. However, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t guilty leaving them all alone. *inserts crying emoji*
Why not bring your pooch along to your next gathering? We have compiled a fun list of dog-friendly places: cafes, beaches and even a hotel, that allows you to spend some time with your fur-kid! No more sad, droopy eyes staring back at you. Plus, they also get to socialise and make some new friends. That’s definitely a win-win for doggy and us!
Admit it, all of us dog owners secretly wish all cafes are dog-friendly.
We’re glad to announce that this secret dream of ours is actually coming true. There are quite a few dog-friendly cafes with excellent food in Singapore.
Not all of them have separate menus for our furry friends though, but we are sure that they are contented just lying around and spending time with us!

A superb area located in Changi, The Coastal Settlement has both indoor and outdoor seating areas. It is a cosy and spacious cafe with pretty awesome food for the humans. Also, water bowls are complimentary for our little ones.

We are guilty of not letting our furry friend run around enough because our homes are just too small – no giant backyards or big gardens. Our doggies are surely bored of the usual walks around the neighbourhood.
There are a few fenced up areas in Singapore called dog runs. These facilities are created just for our cute little ones. Remove those leashes and set them free, so they can enjoy the freedom of being in the great outdoors at least for awhile. We reckon they’d be so happy (and tired!) afterwards.
1) Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park
An area that spans over 3km – we get why this place is a hot favourite on the weekends! There is also a fenced area designated for the bigger doggies out there.
Along Bishan Road and Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, Singapore 569981
2) West Coast Park
A place for the Westies! The park is open at all times so you can head there for a workout with your dog any time of the day.
On top of providing biodegradable poo bags, water taps are also available, just in case our little ones get thirsty.
West Coast Park
West Coast Highway, West Coast Park, Singapore 126844
3) Katong Park
Though the dog run is not that big, we are sure it is sufficient for a mid-week workout and training for our furry kids.
59 Fort Rd, Singapore 439105
4) Tampines Central Park
Though the dog run is small, you can go for a walk with your doggy together in the spacious dog-friendly park.

Tampines St 83 (Tampines Avenue 5)
5) The Animal Resort Off-Leash Park
This animal resort is more than just big. It’s massively huge – spanning across two hectares!
Besides a dog run, there are also other facilities such as a pet hotel, grooming school as well as agility facilities. Time to train our fur kids!

81 Seletar West Farmway 5, Singapore 798061
Tuesday – Sunday: 10am to 5pm, closed on Mondays
All dogs are required to be leashed up (except for Marina Barrage) at these places, but we are certain that doggy won’t be blaming you for that leash, since they will be spending some quality time with their favourite person!
1) East Coast Park
One of the most popular parks in Singapore, East Coast Park, is huge so there are plenty of spaces for your pooch to run around. A picnic with both your dog and human friends sounds really great!
