This month is flying by in a flurry of events! First it was International Cat Day and then followed by National Day and Hari Raya Haji. Next up are National Dog Day and Holistic Pet Care Day!

Invite family or other pet parents out for a brunch date and visit a dog-friendly café! Ah B Café is one dog café in Singapore that offers food for both you and your dog.

Get Your Furkid New Toys
When was the last time you got your pup new toys? Yesterday? Here’s a reason to get him some more! The KONG Wobbler Treat Dispensing Dog Toy is sure to keep your dog occupied for hours. It’s even great for your dog’s mental and physical health! You could also get your dog a new plush toy to replace the one your dog has slobbered all over. FuzzYard has this adorable taco-shaped one that comes with a squeaker!
Take Your Pup Outdoors!
It can’t be fun only going out for short walks once at dawn and a second time at dusk and then staying home all day in the time in between! Besides, your dog probably already knows the layout of your neighbourhood like the back of its paw by now.
This weekend, in celebration of National Dog Day, why not take your furkid out for a day of fun?
Apart from being a great spot for picnics, Marina Barrage also has a wide-open field for your dog to frolic around and run about. You could even fly a kite while you play fetch with your dog!
Head down to the Singapore Botanic Garden for a picnic or a stroll! This park has a ton of walking trails and greenery for you and your doggo to explore.
East Coast Park is perfect for a lazy Sunday stroll. On weekends, you’d usually see families cycling, having a picnic and even chilling by the beach. Most pet owners also take their dogs their for a walk or a jog early in the morning or at sunset!

Bring Your Furfriend out for a Swim
Dogs swimming and paddling in the water has got to be one of the cutest sights ever. But apart from cuteness, swimming is great for your doggo’s physical health – it helps with increasing body awareness, balance and coordination and to help him keep fit. Swimming for dogs, could also by a form of therapy (also known as canine hydrotherapy). Since being buoyant in water reduces the stress on your dogs joints, hydrotherapy is a form of exercise and/or treatment for a dog that is in surgical rehabilitation or has mobility issues.
