Owning pets in Singapore can be a bit taxing, as pets are not allowed in a lot of public places, but we do know some interesting places that not only allow your pet but welcome you and your furkid with open arms. So, you don’t have to take your pets just to the beach or to the dog parks: you can take your furry friend to an eatery beside a swimming pool where both of you can have fun and chill out.
Located in Bishan Park and nestled in the green nature, Cornerstone is one of the few places in the Park that welcomes pets. This alfresco joint serves perfectly delicious meals, decadent desserts, and alcoholic beverages to cater to your every whim, and your pet can be with you the entire time you are there. Cornerstone also offers American cuisine, and your pets will be well-cared for as the restaurant, has a section dedicated to dogs, with bowls and a water point for your pets.

Occupying a stretch of sand in Sentosa, the Tanjong Beach Club has been ranked as one of the best beach clubs in the world, and what’s more, you can take your pets there to enjoy all that serenity and soak up the sun away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Weekend mornings are probably the best times to bring your pets to the beach club, as they will get to play with other pets, and you can enjoy the view while sampling the club’s famous truffle fries.

As the name implies, the Canopy Garden Dining Bar is located in a veritable garden. At one with nature, this restaurant provides both outdoor and indoor seating for patrons, and pets are allowed, but only the outdoors, so the best option for you would be to sit outside with your pet and enjoy all of the nature’s beauty, with great Western cuisine to complement it. The Canopy is actually a stone’s throw away from Cornerstone, and you may need to have some insect repellant with you because all that lush greenery could still harbour some pesky little insects.

There are several other spots in Singapore that are pet-friendly. Most of these places require that your pets stay outside, while some provide a space dedicated to entertaining your pets and making sure they have water to drink. Other places require that your pets stay on a leash, while others allow your pets to stay indoors or outdoors, that is, wherever you are seated. These pet-friendly places make it easier for you to have a great time out with friends and family (your furkids are family too!) Just be conscious as a responsible pet owner, by leading them away from the restaurant when their nature calls and clean up after them. Nobody loves a waft of fresh poop smell with their freshly cooked food!
