Unlike many other countries where dog-friendly public areas are fairly common, it is not the case in Malaysia out of respect for our fellow Muslim countrymen.
Malaysian dog owners and lovers have limited places they can visit together with their furry best friends, whether it be for a stroll, meal or outdoor activity.
As such, PropSocial has compiled a list of places where dogs are allowed, and where dog lovers can spend quality time with their best friends.
Desa ParkCity is the largest and most well-planned dog friendly park in Malaysia. It is a dog-friendly neighbourhood where all the residents are tolerant towards the furry four legged animal.
Proper dog poop disposal bags are available at every corner of the park, and owners are allowed to visit most of the restaurants with their best friends. Dog food is sadly however not served.

Little known to many is the dog-friendly park just beside the One Utama Shopping Mall, where it is acceptable for well-trained dogs to be unleashed to mingle with other dogs. It is a huge and spacious park with a small lake in the middle where children love feeding the fishes and turtles - and where the dogs love swimming in as well.

SWIM PARADISE, OLD KLANG ROAD
Swim Paradise Park & Cafe is a single storey corner house located in Batu 3, Old Klang Road which comes with a swimming pool and a little garden for dogs. It costs RM38.80 per hour, where the furry best friends get 2 pieces of homemade sushi!
With the limited space available only 2 or 3 dogs are allowed at a time, hence owners will need to make their bookings early. Although the swimming pool is only at waist level for an adult, both children and adults alike are allowed to swim in the pool with their best friends.

BARKS BUNNIES CAFE, SUBANG JAYA
This cafe used to be called as Hop Hop Cafe, as they had, and still have, rabbits for patrons to pat and play with. They have recently changed their name to Barks Bunnies Cafe instead, as they now allow dogs as well. The bunnies are of course segregated to an area of the restaurant, otherwise the bunnies would like become dog food for the free roaming dogs :D This is a wonderful weekend family spot for a meal or coffee for parents with children who loves dogs and rabbits.
