I have had dogs as pets for almost 40 years, and my own children grew up alongside our dogs. They are truly part of my family, as we brought two with us when we were living in Thailand.
Besides my own dogs, I have also spent much time taking care of our canine friends at volunteer organizations such as SPCA, Noah's Ark and Animal Lovers League in Singapore, and the Soi Dog Foundation in Thailand. I am an experienced dog handler, having crossed the paths and touched the lives of hundreds of dogs.
We adopted our current dog, Cupcake, a Singapore Special, from the SOSD shelter after our two elderly dogs passed away. My wife and three children are all dog lovers, and together, we provide a fun and loving environment for all canine guests.
I am semi-retired and mainly work from home, a terrace house in a tranquil location not far from Serangoon Garden. Nearby are several nice parks for the neighbourhood children and dogs to frolic around.
Daycare dogs enjoy 1 - 2 walks per day, while boarders enjoy 2 - 3 walks per day. Regular walks will last 30 - 60 minutes per session. For dogs who require more rigorous exercise, by special request, I can also take them to big fields as well as Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park for longer walks of 1 - 2 hours.
Duration for home visits will depend on the pet owners' home location, surrounding and specific requirements, but should be no less than 1 hour per visit.
Pet owners are expected to provide regular food items, information regarding known allergies and any medicinal instructions to ensure the comfort and safety of their pets. Bedding, blanket, toys and other comfort objects are also welcome to ease the pain of separation anxiety.
I have experience with dogs at all stages of life, from puppies of a few months to senior citizens close to the end of their second decade.
If owners are amenable, I can also help with minor behavior corrections and diet improvements as part of my holistic services.
I was very happy with the service Calvin provided. He was very punctual for our meet and greet and explained very clearly how he managed the dogs in his house. After we felt confident we wanted to proceed with the day care, we walked to his place (just a minute away) so that my dog would get acquainted with the place. Calvin house was very clean, and the pets were very well kept. His wife Selene was lovely and you can tell they really love the dogs. I felt very comfortable right away. And a plus is they have a lovely park right by their home to walk the dogs. It was a very successful first stay and my dog Bailey was very happy. Thanks for the photos and updates, Calvin. I would highly recommend him.
My dog isn’t easy, but Calvin and his family take care her very well. They are very kind and I felt that my dog was safe there. Now I have people that I can trust to leave my dog, because when you live so far your family is difficult find someone to help you. Thank you so much!
