Don’t have the luxury of time to go on a vacation with your pet? Fret not. You can destress with your furkid with a fun-filled day out instead! Spend the weekend hopping in and around Klang Valley at only the best pet-friendly parks, newly-opened cafes, and spaces to enjoy quality time with your partner-in-crime (stealing hearts and treats, that is!).

Here are some ideas on having a bonding weekend with your furbabies!

Bonding activities with your furry friend

The Square by Jaya One, Petaling Jaya

There’s an abundance of things to do with your furbaby at The Square! There are four retail and F&B space levels for you to visit with your pet, including 11 pet-friendly restaurants ranging from Korean BBQ to mala hot pot. If you want to lounge or get work done with your pet, you’ll be glad to know that the co-working space, Common Ground, is pet-friendly too, and not forgetting MeTime Book Cafe!

The Square will occasionally host markets and events every other week on weekends. You can sit and watch adorable pups learning basic commands and etiquette at the puppy classes held every Sunday or pop by the bi-weekly adoption drive to adopt a new best friend! We recommend following The Square’s social media to keep abreast about pet-related events (and claim free puppaccinos!).
