Canine Clubhouse (CCH) is more than a little different from what you’d expect from a regular doggy daycare. Set on a sprawling landed property in tranquil Changi, the 6,800 sq ft grounds include a 2,000 sq ft bungalow that can accommodate up to 30 pups, and a massive garden for them to romp around.
Also the owner of Canine Wellness and Rehab Centre, CCH’s founder Lynn Ho, deliberately chose a landed property instead of a shophouse space for her latest doggy enterprise. Launched just four months ago, CCH’s idyllic setting offers her furry clients the comforts of home, while the ample space allows Lynn to incorporate some super fun amenities into the spaces.
The fully air-conditioned single-storey bungalow has areas for play and rest, such as a ball pit for pooches to dive into, but the exterior is where it’s all happening. There’s a massive garden for furry ones to tear around, and a water play area where pups can splash around and cool down at the same time. That CCH is surrounded by lush green foliage is a boon.
Whether you’re a busy paw-rent or simply wish to create some happy times for your furkid, a staycation at this doggy wonderland should certainly be on the cards for Fido.
CCH is the first doggy daycare centre in Singapore to have a water play area for pooches. The centre’s pups can cool off in the sweltering heat or chase one another around the artificial lawn while playing fetch with the staff. When playtime is over, they will be washed and dried to prevent colds or aggravation of any skin conditions.
Have a ball
With supervision, daycare doggies can leap into a pit of 1,500 multi-coloured balls. The area is safely fenced up with a small gate to enter and exit the pit. A clear favourite with the centre’s pooches, the ball pit nurtures socialisation with both dogs and humans through play.
CCH is located at 3 Toh Crescent. To book an appointment for your furkid, call 8816 3366. All dogs need to go through a temperament test beforehand. Opening hours: 8.30am-6.30pm (Tue to Fri); and 9am-6.30pm (Sat to Sun). Closed on Mon.
