This has been discussed before on the forum, if I remember correctly.
In any case, as far as I know the situation is as follows:
- No dogs are allowed in HDB flats (which are 90% of all apartments and usually have lower rents)
- Some Condo complexes have rules against dogs, or against certain dogs (e.g. small dogs allowed, bigger ones not)
- Some landlords also dislike dogs (e.g. all Muslims, for whom dogs are "haram" or unclean, and many other Singaporeans are also afraid of dogs or dislike them)
So, you need a Condo that allows dogs and a landlord who is understanding. It does exist, but limits your choices!

Many thx. Which is the difference between HDB and condo?
Thx a lot

If you know nothing about the Singapore property market, it is time to read about it in detail, as it differs considerably from other places.
HDBs are governmentally subsidised apartments, in which 90% of all Singaporeans live. Condos are upmarket private complexes, mostly with amenities like security guards (completely unnecessary in safe Singapore, but a status symbol) and swimming pools. There are also a few, hard to find and expensive landed houses for rent - plan on paying around S$10000/month if you want one.
