Too busy to spend time with your beloved pets when you’re at work or out of town? Find out how you can enrol your furkids for day care at Sunny Heights and get to know more about the other pet-friendly facilities they have to offer.

Tucked away in the quiet neighbourhood of Bukit Timah is Sunny Heights – a one-stop paradise for all dogs, cats and pet-lovers alike. Spanning across a spacious open area amidst lush greenery and fresh air, Sunny Heights is a pet-friendly enclave that comes equipped with a range of facilities designed to carry out its day care services.

Sunny Heights prides itself in offering a comfortable and spacious environment for your pets to roam freely, socialise and get their dose of exercise while you’re busy with work or away for travel. Recognised for providing pet day care services, you can simply drop your furkids off at Sunny Heights before heading to work and know that they will be kept entertained all day under the supervision of friendly staff.

We spent some time exploring the tranquil grounds of Sunny Heights and have rounded up information that will interest pet owners as well as those who are looking to learn more about adopting a pet.

Day Care & Hotel

At Sunny Heights, the Doggy Day Care services they provide are ideal for owners who want a convenient space for their doggies to learn new tricks, meet other dogs and be mentally stimulated.

Derrick Tan, Operations Manager of Sunny Heights shares: “At Sunny Heights, we want to create a community where pet owners can gather together with their pets, while those who don’t own one can come down to check the pets out and ask questions. The programme we’ve designed at Day Care is especially beneficial for owners who own dogs of a certain breed that have more energy to burn, but have no time to accompany their dogs in doing so.”

Simply drop your furry ones off for check-in by 8am – just like in hotels – and they’ll be all set for a whole day of exciting programmes!

Activities include organised pack walks lasting from 20 minutes to an hour, outdoor Frisbee or ball games, a 20-minute swimming session, and more socialisation opportunities indoors. After a whole day of fun and games, your furkids are ready to go home to you for some tender loving care.

If you’re travelling out of town, Sunny Heights also offers dog and cat boarding at their safe and comfortable hotel facilities. Two different types of boarding are offered for dogs – an ‘Open Concept’ boarding where they get to mingle with other dogs, or ‘Penned-up’ boarding for those that prefer a more private arrangement.

The Hotel at Sunny Heights is almost like a “holiday camp” for your dogs where they get to enjoy a restful slumber in air-conditioned pens on top of the programmes organised at Day Care. To make sure your pooches feel most at home, they’re allowed to bring along their own blanket, one small toy and their favourite treat for a comfortable stay while you’re away.

As for cats, a separate Cat Hotel is also available at the centre, featuring a spacious glass house with comfortable lounging spots just for your pampered felines.


The Cat Hotel opens up to an outdoor area with a sheltered lounging spot for owners to take in some fresh air or enjoy the natural sunlight with their beloved kitty cats.

Doggy Day Care services start from SGD 34 for small dogs (below 10kg). Hotel rates begin at SGD 25 per night, on top of Day Care charges. Transportation rates are charged at SGD 22 on weekdays, and SGD 33 on weekends.

Dogs will have to go through a minimum of five days in day care for a socialisation and temperament assessment before they are eligible for night boarding.

Pool and Exercise Area


As the only centre offering an animal-friendly pool in the West, have your furkids soak in some sun and experience a splashing good time at Sunny Heights’ stylishly furnished Pool. There are two swimming pools available – a deep pool and a ‘shallow’ lap pool. To ensure safety, a three-step entry to the pool is available for doggies who are swimming for the first time, while the deep pool comes with a safety ramp to facilitate easy exit for your furkids. If your doggy is not used to or afraid of water, life vests are also available for rent at a charge of SGD 2. 

The pools also feature water park themed spurting pipes to gradually warm the dogs up before they enter the cool waters. The pool is open to dogs of all ages, and owners are welcome to join in the fun with their furkids.

Admission rates to the pool start at SGD 14 per hour for small dogs. Sunny Heights offers Swimming Packages where you can purchase 10 tickets and get two free at a rate starting at SGD 140 for small dogs.


Upon exiting the pool, do look out for a unique self-service Dog Wash machine that comes equipped with shampoo, conditioner, flea & tick solution and a blow dryer! Priced at SGD 10 for the first 10 minutes, just follow the instructions provided and you’ll have a clean and dry dog within minutes!

Just beside the pool is a spacious 5,000 square feet exercise area designed to let your furkids move about freely and play with other dogs. The dogs get play ball games under the supervision of friendly staff at Sunny Heights.  Doggies get to learn how to socialise with other dogs, and this simultaneously benefits owners who own dogs with more energy to burn.
