Most dog owners, I’m sure, are with me when I say that weekends are for catching up with your canine bestie and making up for the long hours and busy weeks. Staying in cuddled up with your dog, enjoyable though it is, gets boring pretty quickly. If you’re an active person who doesn’t take pleasure in lazing around, it’s natural that you would find yourself wanting some inspiration on things that you could do outdoors, here in Singapore, with your dog.
Here are 7 cool ideas for awesome doggie-dates in Singapore!
1. Tanjong Beach, Sentosa
The sight of the sea and the beach inexplicably drives dogs mad with delight. Granted Tanjong isn’t really the prettiest or grandest of beaches but it’s what we’ve got in our lovely city and what it will lack in space (it is densely crowded on the weekends) , it will more than make up for in novelty, to your dog. You could just lie down with that bestseller you’ve been wanting to get into or just frolic on the waves and have a blast with your dog.
