Every time you go out to have a good time with your friends, your furkid is left behind, morosely waiting at the door for you to come back home. Your beloved pooch's life only lasts 10 – 15 years, any separation from you will be incredibly painful even if it's just a few hours. And remember that while you may have a lot of friends to entertain, your canine companion only has you, you are basically his entire world. So when you make plans with your friends, it will be great to include Fido in it too. To keep everyone, including yourself, happy, you can visit these pubs in Singapore that allow you to bring your pup.
An oasis in the heartlands, Middle Rock Garden Bar is a great place to chill over a couple of drinks with your dog and your friends. Situated in Bishan Park and set amidst lush, green foliage, this outdoor pub takes you away from the hustle and bustle of city life as you wine and dine under the stars in nature. One would imagine that with all those plants and trees, the area would be teeming with mosquitoes. That is not the case as this pub is magically devoid of all mosquitoes. In fact, all the times I have been there, I have never seen any insects at all. I have still yet to uncover their insect-free secret as there are no signs of any mosquito coils or pesticide sprays anywhere.

A simple but perfect concept for a pub! Bacon and booze does indeed go along hand in hand. Two of my all time favorite things to consume at one convenient location! My frequent gripe is that there are not enough bars that serve bacon, but now that there is a pub that is all about bacon and beer! It doesn't get anymore awesome than that! This pub is located at the Punggol Ranch, which is where you can book to stay overnight in their cowboy-themed chalets and ride horses! Bacon & Booze's interior is decked out in the style of the wild wild west with western lamps, rustic and wooden furniture and ropes used as décor. Just remember that even though bacon is awesome, your dog should not take a bite out of that as it is too oily and too fatty for its body to process.

Situated off the beaten track, near the coast of Singapore, is a casual laid-back bar which promises to give you a sense of relief from the hectic Singapore city life. Furnished in both modern and antique details, this unique establishment is bound to be a breath of fresh air compared to any of those typical pubs you get in the city where it is always too crowded, too noisy and too overpriced. This is a perfect place to patronize if you want to forget about the cares of the modern world and simply lose yourself in its charming ambiance with the sentimental oldies softly playing in the background, the crystal chandeliers casting a warm glow against everything in the room, and lovely wafting scents of pastries baking in the oven. This place is HUGE and can easily accommodate 300 people, so no matter how big or small, furry or hairless your group is, you will definitely be able to find the perfect seating arrangement.

Woods Emily Hill is a hidden gem of a pub secretly nestled in the heart of town little known to public. Located just 5 minutes away from Dhoby Ghaut and Bugis, Woods Emily Hill takes the form of a charming colonial mansion at the peak of Mount Emily. Quiet, serene and tranquil, this beautiful garden bar is a great place to unwind after work with your pooch and friends. As you get comfortable in your nostalgic rattan chair, your pampered pup will also be lounging in his own special dog chair. Sit back and relax with a cocktail in hand as the soft jazz music playing in the background gently soothes your frazzled nerves.

If you are bringing your dog to Sentosa for a day of sun, sea, and sand, Coastes is a place where both you and your furry friend can stretch out and bask in the warm sun after a refreshing swim in the sea. Situated along the golden stretch of Siloso Beach, right along the water's edge, this cozy beach shack welcome dogs to sit with their owners in their sunbeds and deck chairs, and the more independent pooches can even curl up in comfortable bean bags they specially provide for dogs as the humans fill up their tummies with burgers, hotdogs, spicy wings and ice-cold beer. This is the idyllic island getaway for both humans and dogs alike who need a change of scenery from our concrete jungle.

Your pup will definitely be more than ecstatic to follow you to these beautiful places within Singapore instead of being coped up at home all day. However, please note that these establishments while they are pet-friendly, they are not pet cafes and they only serve human food, so keep in mind to bring along some dog kibble for your pooch in case he gets hungry and some water to rehydrate him. And also, please pick up after your dog, the last thing you want is any of these places banning dogs because lazy owners irresponsibly leave their dogs' droppings everywhere.
