Is your dog a dog run addict? Then you have to make sure to let her sniff out all the dog runs in Singapore! Here’s the complete list for you to check off.

As Singapore is warm and humid, beware of mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks. Remember to protect your dog with natural flea and tick prevention and check her coat thoroughly after play.

With that said, here is the complete list of dog runs in Singapore.

15. Ready in 2018 – Dog run near Tai Gin Road

This dog run will be located near the Buddhist temple. Expected completion date would be at the end of 2018.

A few more thing to take note – certain breeds are required to be muzzled before they are allowed into parks and dog run. Be considerate and avoid bringing dogs to a dog run when they are sick, aggressive, or on heat.

Opening hours of the dog runs may change. Please check with NParks or the respective owners.
