Home away from home for pets
By GERALDINE TAN – It can be heart-wrenching when pet owners go on holiday and have to leave their beloved furkids with strangers. What they dread is coming home to a sick pet or one with ticks or injuries.
Luckily, for us in Singapore, we have some really great well-equipped and professionally managed boarding centres. Friends who want the very best for their furry family members share this advice:
Always check the kennel out before deciding. Ask around for recommendations based on your budget. Friends can share their experiences.

- Dogs On Board
Describing itself as ‘more than a dog hotel, more than dog sitting’, the 2500 sq ft home provides a cage-free environment. As Dogs On Board only take in a limited number of dogs, personal attention is given to each dog with games and gourmet treats to keep them happy. And for anxious dog mummies like me, you will be glad to know that Dogs On Board will provide frequent updates and send photos of your furkid to you.
