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’s one of the largest dog runs in Singapore with an area of 2,700m² – that’s almost the size of 22 basketball courts!

If you’re visiting this park, do remember to bring some water along as there’s no water point in the vicinity. However, there are water coolers nearby so you might want to bring a bottle to collect water if you need to rinse your dog off.

  • Water coolers
  • Car park nearby

What is the difference between a water point and a water cooler?

Water points are lower in height, catering to dogs so that they can drink from it or wash up. Water coolers usually come up to a person’s waist and are made for people to drink from.

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 the American Kennel Club!

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.

Dogs are required by law in Singapore to be leashed at all times. However, they can go off-leash at dog parks and runs.

Dog parks are great for dogs as they get to socialise with other canines and have ample opportunity to exercise. An increase in physical activity also means less destructive behaviour at home.

If your dog is fearful of socialising with other people and canines, he might not be ready to go to a dog park just yet. He’s likely to meet many new faces at the park, and this might stress him.

It’s best to socialise him first before taking him to the nearest dog park.
