Testimonial - Stephanie (text version)

"When I first brought back my toy poodle, Coco, she was only 2 months old. Like a teddy bear, brown and extremely cute. My hubby and I are both new to pets….totally clueless. What we thought about having a puppy was to get her a cage, toys and food then teach her to pee and poo at the place we wanted. When Coco came into our family…gosh~ it wasn’t as simple as I thought. She pee and poo wherever she likes, bites and growl at my girls (aged 4 and 7). Got into a shock seeing her behaviour and seeking everywhere for help from friends and even read from forum and stuff. Some say beat her, cane her and punish her….and I even got commented saying I don’t even know how to take care of a puppy, why get one and let the poor puppy suffer. So heart aching to hear that =(

From internet and recommendation, I start to explore on Amber Toy Poodle. Read as far back as when they decided to have a puppy. While reading, I can feel the passion and love for pets, so I start to email enquiring on Coco’s behaviour. To my surprise, even though I did not engage any of their services, they replied to me in details and patience, asking me questions and answering my doubts. After a few emails and fail attempts at my end, I desperately ask them if they could visit my place. Lucky me manage to get a time slot from them, Nicole and Jeryl.

I was surprised to see a young couple at my door! Really surprise~ First session, more like a get-to- know session and teaching us some basic commands. To us, it is really a fulfilling 2 hours session, learning the right way of correction and coaching her. About a month later, we had the 2nd session. Sad to say, we didn’t fare well. Maybe the gap from the first session was a bit too long due to Coco’s 3rd vaccination. We only manage to correct her growling and hiding under in hide corner. Her response to command was not good… From the 2nd session, we learn to walk her and sort of re-training on commands. 2 weeks later, Jeryl and Nicole returned for the final training. This time we fare great! Coco reacts to our command and is able walk well with my hubby! This requires time and effort~~ not something that one could achieve over night.

Coco is now coming to 6 months, still at her rebellious stage but under control. =) To me, Coco is not a robot that listens and reacts to command. We are like her parent, teaching what is right and wrong. And Nicole and Jeryl go to my caretaker category =P. Whenever I need to travel, the assurance of Coco’s well-being and safety will be in their safe hands. If you happen to see Coco appearing on their blog or Facebook, that’s my cute little girl!"

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, seek

How to take care of your dog before and after Spay/Neuter

Many owners, especially first timers have no idea how to take care of their dogs after spay/neuter operation, owners that do not know what to expect could easily be traumatize by the experience along with their dog. This is why we have decided to come up with a tutorial on how to take proper care of your dog during the healing process. Before deciding on spaying/neutering your dog, it is good to first read up the pros and cons of doing it, don't spay/neuter your dog just because other people do it, check it up, study about it and take some time to decide.

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 becaus
