Do you like adventures, get excited about exploring the unknown, and feel alive when out and about? Chances are, so does your inquisitive, bright-eyed pooch. Besides taking trips around the neighbourhood and playing fetch at your nearby park, there’s actually plenty of sporty fun that you and your doggo can have together right here in Singapore!

Good for dogs who love a splashing good time, treat your pup to more than just a swim in an indoor dog pool by kayaking in the great outdoors! While most reservoirs and rivers don’t allow your furkid to be with you in a kayak, Sentosa’s Tanjong Beach is dog-friendly, and so are the handful of kayak rental and expedition organisers available nearby.

All you need to prepare is a life jacket for your dog in case the rental place doesn’t offer any or is out of your dog’s size. That’s right – life jackets for dogs exist!
Cycling is a great way to get around Singapore, and it’s also a wonderful way to broaden your doggy’s horizon and bring them along on your adventures. All you need to do is to purchase a dog bicycle seat from the internet to attach to your bicycle, and don’t forget dog goggles as well to protect his/her eyes from the wind!
If you don’t have a bicycle of your own, not to worry – bike rental kiosks near Coney Island have tricycles with makeshift carriages available for rent. You’ll be breezing through the tranquil foliage with your furry friend in no time!

For the enthusiastic nature lovers, immerse your companion and yourself in flora and fauna with a camping session at a park! A wide variety of camping gear specially made for dogs are available online, with items such as a portable dog cot for critters with back or joint problems, and a portable dog pen to prevent your pet from running off or getting all tangled up in their leashes.
Dogs are not allowed on most nature trails here in Singapore, but that doesn’t mean that backpacking is instantly off-limits for you and your paw pal. Instead, dogs are more than welcomed at places such as the Dairy Farm Nature Park, Fort Canning Park, Botanic Gardens, Labrador Nature Reserve, and Punggol Waterway Park, so long as they are leashed and kept to tarmac roads!
These are treasure troves exploding full of sights and scents for your dog to take in while you get your fill of that day’s required exercise. Of course, don’t forget to make sure that your dog has a little doggy backpack of its own to hold its treats, water, and other necessities before you embark on the journey. It is a backpacking trip after all!
For your furry pal to be a happy and healthy doggo, he/she needs not only regular exercise but also proper nutrition.
