Testimonial - Kenneth & Charlene (text version)

"As first time owners, we did not know what having a dog meant. Watching episodes of the dog whisperer made training the dog easy enough but they were not as simple after we got cupcake. We could never touch her ears, she growls when feeding and she would snap at us (we later realize that these were signs of fear aggression).

When Jeryl and Nicole arrived at our doorstep, we were surprised to see a young couple. Nevertheless, they immediately showed their professionalism and love for dogs. They spent time talking to us and observing the dog. While Jeryl did the main training, Nicole had her handy notebook to record their observations. They were impossibly patient, repeatedly giving the commands till the puppy learnt and obeyed.

What we really love is the customised experience. With the training at our home, they were able to give good advice on what we should or should not do (for first time owners, we really made a few faux pas). After telling them what problems we faced, they were able to give us specific instructions with demonstrations on what we can train our puppy on. Over the three sessions we really could see rather dramatic progress.

We learnt that besides love, dogs need routine and someone to look up to. When they come to us as puppies, we become their parents. Discipline is something we need to enforce. As in parenting, there are different approaches to caring for your dog but we have become convinced that Jeryl and Nicole's firm approach is the best way to make your puppy happy and well behaved. Looking at our cupcake three months after the training, we see a happy puppy who has overcome her aggression issues most of the time. She still play bites and runs into the kitchen often but we have come a long way and with time she will be a happy well behaved dog. Thanks Jeryl and Nicole for your valuable training." - Kenneth and Charlene.

First time to Pasir Ris Farmway (Pet Farm)

04 Feb, my husband's colleague decided to get another puppy so he drove us to Pasir Ris Farmway to look for puppy since we wanted one as well. He already has a 1 year Male Yorkshire Terrier so he was looking for another breed to accompany his Yorkshire. The farm was really hard to get to if you do not drive a car, unless you don't mind calling a cab. It's in the deepest part of the road and there ain't any buses around. When we first went to the first shop at farmway 02, we met a very stuck-up pet owner. Very "hao lian(proud)" with his puppies and even said all his prices are very CNY, all ended with $xx88 which means good luck for the Chinese people. We saw a pretty red toy poodle but it was sold, so the shop owner told us to buy his other puppies instead since all his puppies are so-called "high quality". I think that shop was kinda overpriced for every puppy that he quoted.

One of the pups that he was selling, poodle was just besides it, seeking f…

Vet Review - Light of Life Vet

This was a very tedious search for us, finding a good vet for Amber. I researched online for many weeks before coming to a conclusion. I called most of the "recommended vets" and asked questions regarding consultation, spay and deworming. I also wanted to see whether the staffs knew what i inquired about. I would ask them stuffs like what does the spay consist, when can i take Amber home, how old should Amber be spayed and why. Some of the staffs do not even understand what i was talking about and told me to book an appointment to ask the vet what i needed to ask, so i blacklisted those clinics. I also cancelled out vets that are overly expensive and too far for transport, i do not want to make the trip back after surgery hard for Amber. Although i usually trust the internet for reviews of good vets in Singapore, i do see some ridiculous recommendations on vets based on things like "good to chat", "funny" and i even saw a thread to recommend the vet becau…
