Moving with a Dog

Postby andrigar7 » Fri, 16 Jun 2017 2:55 am

Hello,

I am considering moving to Singapore for work with my Golden Retriever. My question is in regards to pet friendly accommodation. How easy is to find pet friendly accommodation in Singapore and anyone can recommend a web page or an agent?

I see enough dogs around to think that it won't be a problem. With the current rental market there are probably a lot of landlords who now allow pets just to get a tenant. You will be excluded from HDB though, large breeds aren't allowed.

There is a property link at the top of the page and a google search will also reveal other sites.

Suggest you rent near a park. I'm on the East Coast and it's great for dogs, albeit on leash. I know of one dog walking park at West Coast Park, I imagine there are others.

Transporting a large dog should be a consideration, they aren't allowed on public transport. And if you are thinking of getting car, check the prices here first, they are stupidly steep.

You also cannot take them on public transport and a lot of taxi drivers will not allow dogs in their vehicle (especially Muslim taxi drivers).

I reckon Uber and Grab it would depend on the driver as they are using their personal vehicles in a lot of cases. Again, depends on the drivers.
