Review: Cookie has made so many friends through Up For Paws

Cookie Up For Paws“Up for Paws is a great daycare that has exposed my Pomeranian Cookie to a variety of dogs, making him more sociable and comfortable with dogs of all sizes. The Up For Paws team take great care and are very attentive. I also used the transport service and I could always entrust the team to be on time for pick-up and drop-off. They send messages including photos and videos at least twice a day and it always brings a smile to my face how happy Cookie is there. Cookie has made so many friends through Up For Paws… and he’s even helped me make new dog parent friends too 😉 A great five star daycare to sum it all up!”

Review: The updates are most comforting

Tucker 200x200“Tucker has just started attending daycare. Thanks to Hurb and his team for their excellent and most accommodating services. It is very clear that everyone in their team are dedicated. The updates are most comforting and I feel Tucker has a blast each day he spends with his new found friends, both human and furries.”

Review: Always has Bear’s best intentions at heart

Bear 200x200“Bear loves her time at UFP. She’s made tonnes of friends and looks forward to being picked up by Hurb in his white van. They are great at helping out on short notices and have always had Bear’s best intentions at heart. It’s nice knowing that Bear has a great family at her day care. We trust Hurb and his team immensely.”

Bear – Beautiful Singapore Special


Review: Having so much Fun at Up For Paws

“We have been using Up for paws for quite some time and they are great! Always on time and our dogs are always excited to go. The dogs are well looked after and have so much fun. We also used them for boarding and they went the extra mile… thanks Up For Paws you’re the best!”

Review: He loves being there Everyday

Magnus the samoyed“Magnus loves Up for Paws (UFP)! Every time he sees any white vans he gets excited, thinking it’s the UFP ‘school bus’ to pick him up from home.

We are grateful to the UFP team for not only taking care of our puppy when we go to work but they also helping to train him, correcting bad habits, giving us advice on how to train him, making sure he has enough exercise, and most importantly having a good time to with his friends.

When we go for holiday overseas for a long time we don’t have to worry about Magnus at all because they also have boarding service and it’s also like a holiday for Magnus as he loves being there everyday. UFP team will not leave your dog alone while boarding; they will monitor them all night, and send you a daily update on how he’s doing, along with many pictures.

Finally we must say UFP team has taken doggy day care to the next level and we don’t think we could find any place like this again. We would strongly recommend UFP for anyone who looking for dog day care.

UFP team always go extra mile for your doggy! #teachingmagnus”

Review: We send our dog once a week to play and stay socialized

Henry the brindle French Bulldog!“Hurb and the whole Up For Paws crew is wonderful. We send our dog once a week to play and stay socialized and he always comes back happily exhausted. He now tries to jump into every white van he sees thinking it might be Hurb coming to pick him up for ‘camp’!”

Review: There is nowhere else I would send her

Harriet the chihuahua!“We love the service Up For Paws provides and am so grateful to have found such a reliable, trustworthy and effective daycare. Harriet is a chihuahua pup and has been going to Up For Paws for 6 months. She is a happy and well socialized dog and will even go up to dogs 10 times her size to initiate play! Up For Paws has taken great care of her and there is nowhere else I would send her now! Thanks guys!”

Review: Such a joy seeing their happy faces

Up For Paws clients Trixie and Sophie the schnauzers!“Thumbs up! to Up For Paw’s day care. We received updates and photos throughout the day. It is such a joy seeing their happy faces and how much they enjoyed their walks and naps. Thanks to a friend’s recommendation and am so happy the my kids get to exercise and play instead of cooping up all day at home. Have since been recommending UFP to my doggies’ friends.”

Review: Up for Paws takes the stress out of leaving your fur baby at home

Indy“Indy absolutely loves his time at Up for Paws! He gets a vacation while we get a vacation. We are so pleased to know that he’s well cared for and enjoying his doggy self while we are away. Up for Paws takes the stress out of leaving your fur baby at home by sending messages and pictures regularly. They are always flexible with our schedules too. I would highly recommend them to care for your pup!”

Review: I love their patience, dedication and ethos

Lady Mae“I sent Lady-Mae for a trial day care because I wanted to find an alternative place that she could go to if I don’t have a dog sitter and have to go away. I wanted to do it ahead of time just in case I needed to send my dog back again because she takes time to adjust especially to new places. Up For Paws’ team is awesome. I love their patience, dedication and ethos in training dogs. Lady-Mae enjoyed herself and here is a telling sign that your dog loves its handlers. She could recognize them after just one visit at Up for Paws.”

Review: As soon as he sees your white van he goes crazy!

Duke Up For Paws“If you want or need someone to watch you dog, look no further!!!! Hurb and his team are the best. Your dog will be loved, played with and cared for. My favourite are the pictures they send us throughout the day so we can see what our beloved pooch is doing. Thanks for all you love and effort you put into Duke! As soon as he sees your white van he goes crazy!”

Review: Never even looks sad when I drop him off

Harley“Up for Paws is a great place to bring your dog to if you have a really busy day and just need a place where your furry friend can hang out at without worrying about whether he is bored or getting into trouble and such. My toy poodle Harley loves it there and he never even looks sad when I drop him off haha. A big plus when he comes back happy and all exhausted when he has a good day of fun. Also love that there are many other furry companions for him to socialize and learn doggie manners! Handlers there are very nice and awesome with the dogs. A big thumbs up :)))”

Review: I will continue to recommend Up for Paws to any dog parent

louis_thumbnail“My mini poodle Louis and I moved to Singapore in January 2015, and were initially worried we wouldn’t find a #doggydaycare like the ones we had in New York and Tampa. However, we were wrong. We found #upforpaws within the first week, and have been in love ever since. My expectations of a doggy day care are quite high; I want my dog to have plenty of scheduled playtime, exercise, rest time and love. I want constant updates on how my little one is doing and I want to make sure he is safe and learning new things daily. Up for Paws delivers on all accounts. They look after Louis just as they look after their own babe, Chowbox; and that means a lot to me. The runs in the parks, the walks around the block, the indoor playtime and the setting of the shop/school itself ensures Louis has the best days. Because of their constant communication via photos, videos and texts, I can visually see throughout the day that Louis is safe and happy. But the real tell tale of how good a place Up for Paws is, is by seeing how excited Louis gets when Up For Paws comes for morning pick up and how content he is when he is safely brought home at the end of the day. If Louis is happy, I’m happy. Even when away on holidays, I get updates on his boarding life with the team there. I will continue to recommend Up for Paws to any dog parent. Keep up the great work!”

Review: Responsible place for my princess

Review: Daycare which I absolutely trust!

knight_thumnnail“Took me a long time to find a day care which I absolutely trust!! My dogs are always so crazily excited to go and I feel like Up For Paws are always looking forward to welcoming them, which makes it even better. :):):)”

Review: It is evident that she is well taken care of

cookie_100x100“Up for Paws’ positive reinforcement techniques work very well for Cookie, our adopted adult dog who once was very shy and poorly socialised. After a few visits to daycare, Cookie is now gaining confidence and learning to play well with her paw friends. She recognises Hurb and will enthusiastically jump on board the petbus to go to school. It is evident that she is well taken care of and enjoys her time at Up for Paws. I am also impressed with the dedicated service Up for Paws provides, right from the start — answering my many Noob queries patiently, coming down to personally assess Cookie, and always providing updates of Cookie’s milestones during daycare. Thank you Up For Paws! 🙂

Review: Highly recommended!

rufus_sally_squarepic“Rufus and Sally (Twins) had a wonderful time while our family was on our overseas trip. Jun & Hurb sent us lots of updates and photos and we felt extremely assured that the twins were enjoying themselves and very well taken care of. Highly recommended!”

Review: Fully assured

lexi_100x100“Left my pet, Lexi, there today for a trial and the service was excellent. The people were nice and friendly as well as sent me pictures of my puppy, leaving me fully assured. Would definitely send Lexi here for future daycare!”

Review: Up For Paws is your answer!

bindi_200x200“Up For Paws is 2 paws up! It is what i call fun-tastic, good quality, true doggie daycare. I tried a couple of doggie daycare, and this is the one i saw smiles & results on my doggie. My doggie comes home from her “school” tired but extremely satisfied & happy. The pictures say it all. She so look forward to seeing her schoolmates every week. The doggie school-bus is a huge bonus. Perfect for owners who needs to work long hours or who need to work early. If you are looking for a quality daycare for your doggie, look no further. Up For Paws is your answer!! Woof!!! 超「十撲」,10萬嘅讚”

Review: They did a great job

Review: Lucky to have them!

odin_200x200“They do such a great job at Up for Paws. We feel very comfortable leaving our dog Odin with them. It is a relief to know he is well taken care of during the day or when we are away. They even send us updates and pictures while he’s at daycare! They offer a much more personal experience rather than other daycares that seem more commercial. We feel lucky to have them!”

Review: Two thumbs up

roxy_pancho_sasha_200x200“Up For Paws’ daycare was great! We received updates as to the pickup and drop off times ; and when we we were away, a stream of photos of our loved furkids enjoying themselves was very welcome. A good mix of walks , positive reinforcement training and naps in the centre. Two thumbs up!”

Review: The drop off/pick up service is a God-send

Buxley the Singapore Special“After trying out several other dog boarders, we were delighted to come across Up For Paws. Their professionalism, car service and focus on exercise and positive reinforcement is impressive and a welcome change from many other dog businesses in Singapore. At Up For Paws, we know our dog will receive plenty of walks and trips to the dog run and will be treated well by staff who have a distinct training style focused on positive reinforcement. It is always a nervous time for us to leave our dog behind when we travel, but receiving daily photo and video updates of our dog via whatsapp helps to ease our mind and let us know she is doing well. The drop off/pick up service is also a god-send for those of us who don’t own a car. It really makes for a seamless and easy boarding process! I also really appreciate how we always receive an e-mailed invoice and receipt for every stay. I can’t recommend Up for Up For Paws enough. It is a business run by and for dog lovers!”

Review: Up For Paws ticks all the right boxes

Boston the Singapore Special“Have tried out several daycare services but Up For Paws ticks all the right boxes (responsive, positive reinforcement, long walks, socializing etc). Thanks for all the care you’ve given to our brat, Boston. (: We love the little snippets sent through WhatsApp too.”

Review: By the time we returned, Sheba was calm and happy to see us

Sheba, smiling at us!“My husband and I did not want to leave our new pup, Sheba, on her own while we were away at work. Thus- we sent Sheba to UpforPaws for doggy daycare services. UpforPaws did not just offer doggy daycare services. They also helped to train and socialize Sheba. Sheba was picked up every morning from our house before we left for work and then safely brought back to our house before we returned home. By the time we returned, Sheba was calm and happy to see us. One of the most appreciated services offered by Up For Paws was the advice freely shared with us by Ros, Hurb and Jun. We now have a happy, calm and socialized puppy. Thank you Up For Paws!

Review: We were dog-boarder hoppers until we found Up For Paws

Aadi the handsome golden retriever!“We were dog-boarder hoppers until we found Up For Paws. Our main concerns were that our precious Goldie has had chronic skin allergies since he was a puppy and when he returns home from boarders, he is miserable with a breakout of hot spots all over which calls for a very expensive trip to the vet and extensive damage control. At UFP, however, we have no worries as they listen to our instructions and requirements and carry them out vigilantly.

This is the happiest Aadi has been at daycare and boarding. He is so excited and enjoys all the activities. And we are more excited when we get regular photos and video updates from UFP.

Thank you so much – We’ve found Aadi dog sitters for life.”

Review: Nothing short of amazing

Buxley the Singapore Special“Buxley attended daycare at Up For Paws and everything from the service to the training was nothing short of amazing. Thank you Up For Paws!

We loved that the daycare service included personalised hour-long walks, positive training, and extensive socialisation with other dogs.

We felt very assured throughout the day as they sent photos and updates without us having to ask. This was very important as it gave us peace of mind knowing that our dog is doing fine. They always communicated openly and freely shared comments and advice – something that a lot of dog trainers tend not to do without charging an additional exorbitant fee.

Armed with their passion, expertise, and professionalism, they ensure a great environment for all dogs under their care. One can be assured that no dogs will be learning any bad habits while at Up For Paws with the high standards of training that they maintain!

We would highly recommend Up For Paws to our friends who want the best care and training for their canines!”

Review: I’ve learnt so much, especially on positive training

Simba, the golden retriever, enjoying Up For Paws daycare!“I’m really grateful to ‘Up for Paws’ for doing such a great job with my 3 year-old Golden Retriever, Simba, when I sent him to their daycare for just slightly over a week. Imagine, I’ve never been able to let Simba roam freely around in the house because he was always so highly excitable. However, just after a couple of sessions at Up for Paws, my family observed a change in him. He was so much calmer, so much more co-operative. Hence, we decided to let him into the house, and hey presto, there wasn’t the usual zooming around looking for items to chew. Instead, there he was – happy to just snuggle in one corner, or just walking around, not bothering anyone!

Also, a special thanks to the staff! Every single day that Simba was at Up for Paws, I get updates on Simba’s progress, including photos and videos! They not only share with us Simba’s activities and progress for the day, but more importantly, they are always ready to dispense a good tip or recommendation. I’ve learnt so much, especially on positive training! Appreciate it!”

Jojo the cocker spaniel“Up for Paws – I am seriously impressed by your service and I just want to thank you so much for your dedication, love and care you give to my dog Jojo for the last few months. I enjoyed reading the updates and looking at all pictures and videos you sent me. Makes me feels a lot less guilty knowing he is happy and having so much fun at you place.”
