Advice on pet sitters/homestay/boarding

Post by anitabatho » Tue, 25 Nov 2008 10:57 pm

Hi,

We have recently moved to Singapore with our very old little dog (16yrs!) and need to find her somewhere to stay (or someone to look after her) while we go home for 3 weeks over xmas and new year. I definitely don't want somewhere where she will be in a cage. Has anyone had any experience or any advice for me? Would be forever grateful!
Cheers.

I believe there are a couple of possibly suitable links in my links page located below in my signature. You can check them out. They may also be able to point you to others as well.

hi

we have 2 dogs and we found it soo difficult to find a decent place that is not already fully booked! K9 kennels is suppose to be very good - however they are fully booked.

We will have our two dogs at Mutts & Mittens. We looked everywhere pretty much...but they at Mutts and Mittens were very friendly and the kennels is nice and specious. All kennels are indoor, and some of them are with aircon. They have been very nice to deal with, very good email/phone communication, etc etc.

However, I would recommend you to go and visit the place first- it is at 11 Pasir Ris F'way 2.

Good luck!

Thank you both for your quick replies. I will definitely check out the one in Pasir Ris. I did figure that it would be difficult over the holidays.
Hopefully we'll be able to find something suitable.

We had great luck using Rick Tan's company Pet Mobile-- for 7 weeks this summer.

www.petmobile.com.sg

We're on his schedule to come back for 3 weeks at Christmas.

Our 11-year old cat is feisty and cranky, and she got along with Rick just fine. After our summer vacation, when he dropped off our keys, the cat went right up and rubbed against him.

We had daily service, where Rick came for a 30-45 minute visit, changed water and food, cleaned the litter box, & played with our cat.

He also checked the mail and watered plants as needed.

I recommend him highly.
