COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ARE THESE PUPPIES FOR SALE OR FOR ADOPTION?
Hi, we are a pet store. Our puppies are for sale only.
WHERE ARE YOUR PUPPIES FROM?
The available puppies you view in store are mostly locally bred. They are from AVS Approved sources only.
We work strictly and closely with AVS Licenced Breeders to ensure that our puppies are from cruelty-free environments.
We do not work with illegitimate sources or backyard breeders.
DO YOU EVER IMPORT PUPPIES?
Yes, we do.
We mostly import from Australia. Our resident Golden Retriever, Zephyr, is an Australian import.
We only import puppies with a 30% deposit placed. The deposit ensures puppies already have an immediate home after the strenuous and stressful air freight.
The whole process may take 3 to 6 months.
HOW MANY VACCINATIONS HAVE MY PUPPY RECEIVED?
Puppies at Wag a Tail Pet Store have at least received 2 vaccinations from a licensed veterinarian in Singapore, before sale.
They are also dewormed at the same time.
WHAT ARE THEY VACCINATED AGAINST?
They are vaccinated against:
Canine Parainfluenza Virus
WHAT IS PARVOVIRUS?
Parvovirus is a virus hugely feared by all owners and puppy handlers.
It is a highly contagious and infectious disease that will cause puppies to fall really ill. Bloody, watery diarrhoea and vomitting are the many signs.
There is no cure and no known medication that can help puppies infected with Parvovirus.
Puppies and dogs infected with Parvovirus can only be treated by giving supportive care in the intensive care with bills amounting to thousands of dollars.
Puppies usually die within 5 days, despite receiving medical and professional treatment.
Puppies which survive (albeit not many) continues to be contagious or infectious up to 3 months.
IS THIS WHY YOU PROVIDE PARVOVIRUS TEST BEFORE A PUPPY GOES HOME WITH ME?
All puppies must do a parvovirus swap test before they go home with you. This is to ensure puppy is free from the deadly virus.
The test will be witnessed by you and/or your family members.
WHAT IS A SKC CERTIFICATE?
SKC stands for Singapore Kennel Club.
The SKC is recognized internationally as the national canine organization of Singapore.
When a puppy has a SKC Pedigree Certificate or is Pedigree Certified, it is kind of self explanatory that puppy is of pure breed.
Puppies with the SKC Pedigree Certificates usually cost more than the ones not registered with Singapore Kennel Club.
MAY WE JUST COME AND PLAY WITH THE PUPPIES? THEY ARE SO CUTE.
Unfortunately, we do not allow interaction unless there is an intention to purchase.
This is also to prevent spreading of diseases and/or illnesses among the puppies.
WHAT BREED IS GOOD FOR ME?
It will be good to do more research as we are not aware of your daily lifestyle to better recommend the perfect breed for you.
If you are staying in a HDB, we suggest looking into the HDB Approved Breeds list first.
Otherwise, it will be best to fix an appointment with us. Our puppy carers and advisors will be able to better help you after a chat.
HOW DO I RESERVE A PUPPY?

WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT MODES?
The pet store accepts
Internet Bank Transfers
DO YOU ACCEPT INSTALLMENT PLANS?
