Bishan Park dog run is one of the most popular spots in Singapore among owners due to its location.

It’s thoughtfully divided into two sections – one for smaller dogs, and another for all breeds and sizes. The large pen can hold up to 100 dogs comfortably which gives your dog plenty of space to run about.

You can even enjoy a relaxing stroll among lush greenery with your dog before and after visiting the run to burn off excess energy!

Amenities:

  • Section dedicated for smaller dogs available
  • Water point for washing and drinking (bring your own water bowl)

One unique feature of the Sembawang Park dog run is that it’s located on a gentle slope. This makes for an almost effortless workout for dogs while they enjoy the sea breeze.

It is one of the largest dog runs in Singapore with an area of 2700m² – that’s almost the size of 22 basketball courts!

If you are visiting this park, do remember to bring some water along as there’s no water point in the vicinity.

Amenities:

  • Benches

K9 Park, located on the 4th floor of NEX, is the first dog park in Singapore to be integrated within a shopping mall.

While it may not have grass patches and greenery, it has an interesting variety of obstacle courses. Do note that the park is better suited for small to medium-sized dogs due to its size.


Tip!
Use the dedicated elevator leading to the park just for dogs. Accessible via the carpark.

When you’re done, shop at our Pet Safari outlet just next to the park. You’ll be able to choose from more than 14,000 products and essential pet services!

Dog Park Tips and Proper Etiquette

Dog playing in the grass field

Taking your dog to the dog park is a great way to keep her happy and healthy. However, it’s also important to have proper etiquette.

Here are some useful dog park tips from Cesar Milan!

Ensure your dog is in good health

For the safety and well-being of all dogs, you should never bring a sick dog to a dog park.

They should also be spayed and neutered to prevent fights from breaking out, especially if a female is receptive to mating.

Visiting the dog park is not a substitute for a walk

Dogs need to get enough exercise by going for walks regularly. This helps to keep them calm and burn off excess energy.

As dog parks are only meant for socialising and playing, overly excited dogs shouldn’t be brought into the run until they get enough exercise. Otherwise, their aggressive and hostile behaviours may cause harm to others.

Remain calm, assertive and take responsibility

Even when your dog is off the leash and having fun with others, you should continue to remain calm and assertive. Always be aware of your dog, and take responsibility for her behaviour including picking up after her.

Understanding your dog

Avoid letting your dog into the run if she hasn’t learnt to socialise yet, is fearful or aggressive towards other dogs. Instead, work on training your dog before slowly introducing her to the company of others.


Bonus Tip!

Some owners use dog parks to find out the aggression of their dogs, especially when they just got them.

Therefore, Chris Onthank recommends that you avoid bringing your puppy to a dog park to avoid falling victim to such aggression.

Keeping Your Dog Mentally and Physically Healthy

Every dog owner is responsible for their pet’s mental and physical health. Giving them enough exercise not only keeps them fit, but also helps to manage their stress levels and prevents destructive behaviour.
