Dog Pools in Singapore

Let's talk about swimming for dogs in Singapore. My ultimate dream is to have my own place with a pool that my dog(s) can swim in. Which probably equate to a private house la. Which condo allows dogs in the pool? Haha. Anyway, the pools that allow dogs in Singapore are so disappointing.


Sun Petgamart
The newest pool at Sun Petgamart that we went to for the second time became dirtier (yellow water, but we did see a dog pee into it), tons of mosquitoes, drainage problem at the doggy shower area, no place for humans to wash up.

U Petgamart
U Petgamart is better, brighter, but too far, lousy doggy shower area, slippery pool. Oh and pool is not very big, platform around pool very narrow.


K9 Kulture (Img from here)

K9 Kulture (now called Animal World) requires payment per use (quite expensive and time based), does not have a doggy shower area, pools look quite dirty the few times we've been there to the kafe and took a look at the pool, has mosquitoes.



Mutts n Mittens
Mutts n Mittens’ pool has got to be the best so far, but you have to book it in advance, requires payment per use (quite expensive and time based but worth it as the place is nicer), pool is big enough (looks like a human pool but smaller and shallower), clean enough, but no doggy shower area (pay to use) and you have to bring your dogs’ vaccination cert (good but a hassle).


Sentosa
Sentosa is free (other than parking), has an open shower area to wash off our dogs (but quite difficult to keep holding onto the tap for water). And the sand. Omg the sand. Though we can wash ourselves off in the public toilet.


Old U Petgamart
I wonder if anyone will do something about this problem in Singapore. Hahaha. If you can provide a location with Mutts n Mittens’ type of pool, a proper doggy shower area, a human wash up area (cos we do get into the pool with our dogs), is pay per entry (not time based), I’d gladly pay for it. Really. Like the old U Petgamart’s pool type. With tables and chairs around with enough space for dogs to run around. I’d be damn happy if such a place exists in Singapore.

Random rant on a Thursday afternoon. Can't wait for Sunday cos we're going to Sentosa and avoiding the clean up of the doggies after cos we're sending them to the groomers! Wahahaha. Love this arrangement but bad on the pocket.

Let me know if you know of any other places to bring ours dogs for swims!!
