Just an idea for our friendly Moderators.
What about comprising a list of pet friendly accomodations.

Would be easier to list pet unfriendly places to live. I don't know of any. Some places like HDB have restrictions as to how many and what types but they aren't pet unfriendly with the exception of cats which aren't allowed in HDB flats.

My god. We log in for the first time to determine the many places (accomodation) and parks etc that our dogs will be welcome. First impression is they wont be and nor will we!! Any one speaking from experience who can help dispel this and point us in the right direction would be appreciated - We are due into Singapore for a look round at the end of Jan. We suspect we need to be looking for condo/xpat areas ? Circa $6K-$8K is our budget. many thanks

Condo/expat areas are the entire island of Singapore. There are no enclaves here like in some places. The closest thing to an enclave would be Holland Village but today that only has maybe 10% of the expat population if that much. Most are scattered all over the island depending on the lifestyle they want to live. Those with a penchant for pubs & the nightlife tend to go for places in/near the CBD. Used to be Holland Village had a corner of the market, but since the American moved the American School to the North side of the Island, huge chunks of Expats (not just yanks) have moved to the north. The east coast is also popular due to the proximity to East Coast Park (which is dog friendly). Also Bishan in the centre of the Island is becoming popular as there is a large dog friendly area in Bishan Park (area of the park is specifically for dogs to run unfettered - with certain restraints depending on the breed of dog). Large dogs & certain other breeds require muzzling and outside of special areas, all dogs are required to be leashed.

Landed property, while expensive, is more affordable on the outskirts of the CBD. The further away from the city centre the more affordable and in areas like Yio Chu Kang you may find terrace or cluster housing within your budget. This site is a good place to start when looking for housing.

Most condo's/landed properties are pet friendly, but you should ask just to make sure. Usually if they are not, it will be specifically noted. (Of course, the owner, on the other hand, may not allow pets, but that's something else again as is within their right even though it may not be the condo management committee's view of the condo in general.

It certainly is, especially with pets involved. It's amazing the lengths people go to to have their pets with them.
I've done it also and feel bad for the little beggers but nothing beats seeing them when they arrive on the other side and I'm sure they feel the same way.
