Our Favourite Dog-Friendly Restaurants in Singapore

For those who have trained with me, you would know that I constantly avoid going to the Dog Park or Dog Cafes.


Why ?


It is a recipe for disaster to have numerous dogs who are not familiar with each other in a confined space, with limited space to maneuver around. Throw in excitable dogs and owners who are likely to have minimal recall on their dogs.


Let’s not forget the triggers that can cause possessive behaviours like food, free affection and toys that will be bountiful in these confined spaces.


And to top it all off – the dogs are likely to be marking, barking, rough-housing, right next to where you are trying to have a relaxing time sipping your chai latte.


Instead, why not head to a dog-friendly restaurant or café instead?


These places are likely to be more open, with sufficient space for you and your dog to have a relaxing afternoon off.


If it is your first time out with your dog, start with short sessions like going for a quick coffee. Make your first few visits during off-peak times.


Like everything else, chilling in a café for a dog takes practice – lying still and patiently waiting for their owners is a skill! Bring a chew bone like a deer antler or a yak milk bone to keep them busy.


If you want to continue enjoying your day out with your furry best friend at a cafe - set a good example, and have a well mannered, calm dog that will always be welcomed back!



Basic dog friendly café etiquettes

  • Do not let your dog eat off the restaurant plates – not everyone wants to eat off the same plate as a dog who just licked it’s own bum

  • Keep your dog settled on ‘place’. Ideally on the floor and definitely not on the chairs – respect the other patrons who may have dog allergies or religious reasons for not wanting to touch dogs

  • Keep your dog calm, and out of the pathway. Restaurants can be a busy place and you do not want to cause anyone to trip

  • If there is another dog nearby, do not assume they want to say hi. Always ask for permission. Click here to read more about when to approach another dog.
