SG50: 5 Ways Dogs Can Join In The Celebrations

SG50 Dog Bandana | Vanillapup

We are celebrating SG50 here at Vanillapup with awesome pawsome outfits, events, promotions, and treats for your dogs!

It’s Singapore’s birthday month in August, and this year is extra special because we’re celebrating 50 years of independence!

The jubilee weekend (7-10 August) is going to be filled with exciting activities and promotions for both humans and furkids alike.

Don’t believe me? Here are 5 ways dogs can join in the celebrations.

Gear up

SG50 Dog Bandana | Vanillapup

Now, you can’t go sniffing around without the right outfit, can you? This bandana (S$18) from Puppy Love Doggy Fashion is a must-have for the stylish pup. It comes in three designs, and you can also personalise it with your dog’s name at an additional $5 charge.

Indulge in local delights

It’s the durian season, so be sure to share this delicious Singaporean favourite with your furry one. If you are looking for something fancier, we recommend a durian cheesecake from Superdog Kitchen made just for dogs (we can share this with humans too, but that’s if we are feeling generous).

If your dog is a 100% meat lover, then you won’t go wrong with the good old Bark-kwa from The Barkery Singapore.

SG50 Promotions
