We are a family of three living in a spacious five-room HDB point block in Ang Mo Kio. My son is 5 years old and he loves animals. He has been regularly exposed to all types of animals since young and he is very gentle and loving towards them. He enjoys giving the dogs belly rubs, bringing them for evening walks, and playing fetch with them.
My husband and I run our own company at a nearby office. Our schedule is relatively flexible and we're able to accommodate requests for early or late drop-offs and pick-ups when necessary (within reason, of course). For dogs who need plenty of human company, they are welcome to spend the day in the office with us for lots of affection and attention!
We have been boarding dogs for almost two years now and we thoroughly enjoy having furry friends at our home. We promise to love and treat your pets like our own children.
We usually only take in one pet at a time. However, if there are any overlaps in bookings especially during peak periods, all owners will be consulted first before we proceed with any co-boarding arrangements. We're able to provide home boarding, home visits, and dog walking services. We also welcome little hamsters, terrapins, fishes, and reptiles as well. A loving and warm temporary home for your pets is guaranteed!
Do you have any pets at home?
We have three medium-sized terrapins living in a tank in our home.
Where are you situated?
We live in the heart of Ang Mo Kio, a seven-minute walk from the MRT station. Ours is an old-school HDB point block, which means there's plenty of space inside the house for your pets to run around. There is a jogging track and garden just below our block and we usually bring the dogs there for their daily walks. We are also near the park (next to AMK MRT), Bishan/AMK Park (short drive away), and established vets and pet shops within our vicinity.
What type of environment will my dog be living in?
Our home is a mid-floor unit. It is usually very breezy and quiet (away from the main road). It is a cage-free environment and your dog will be free to roam around our living spaces. Your dog is able to sleep anywhere in the main living areas of the house.
Will we get daily updates during their stay?
Yes, of course! We will send you daily updates (once a day), sharing photos, videos or simply describing how your pet has been during his/her stay with us.
What are the check-in and check-out timings?
We are flexible with check-in and check-out timings. Just let us know your preference in advance and we will work out something comfortable for everyone.
Do you provide pick-up and drop-off services?
This service is available on request. It is dependent on our availability and transport charges may apply.
What other services do you provide?
Daily walks, belly rubs, regular playtime, and lots of love are included in the Pawradise experience. We also provide free milk kefir daily for all dogs who board with us.
What is milk kefir?
In short, milk kefir is a fermented milk drink (similar to yoghurt). Ours is made using only full cream milk and kefir grains -- and it's the same goodness which my family consumes daily. Milk kefir is generally safe for dogs' consumption. It is packed with probiotics which helps to maintain a healthy gut. It is also beneficial for dogs with ear or skin infections. Milk kefir will be introduced slowly into your dog's meals (less than 1 teaspoon daily) to allow your pet's digestive system to adjust. Based on our experience so far, dogs love it and have no negative reactions to it. Of course, if you do not wish for your dog to have the milk kefir, just let us know and we'll not feed it to your dog. Read more here:
Anything else I (dog owner) need to note?
All dogs must be on tick/flea prevention before boarding. Dogs should be paper- or grass-trained. We will try our best to provide maximum care and attention to your dog, but he/she should be able to stay at home alone for at least 3-4 hours at a stretch, where necessary. Any of your dog's medical conditions or aggressive behaviours MUST be shared with us (We have a five-year-old son at home!). Other special arrangements such as home-cooking for your pets, administering medicine, keeping the aircon on, grooming drop-off, etc, can be discussed and charged additionally.
First time using Pawshake and it is also Milky’s first home boarding. Lovely to have Joann to look after our Milky for two nights. Rest assured Milky was very well taken care of, despite of his teething and hyperactive issue. Joann is very attentive, kind and has shown much flexibility in the pick up and drop off time. Always keep us updated on Milky’s behaviour. Thank you Joann! We Highly recommend Joann for boarding!!
Benji stayed with Joann's family for 3 nights. He was well cared for and I received daily updates from Joann. Was reassured to see that Benji looked happy and comfortable with them! Benji sadly had some behavioural issues - he pooped in their home instead of during his walks. Joann was so patient and kind about it so thank you for that. Overall it was a great experience and I was able to have peace of mind during my trip knowing that Benji was with a loving family.
