Ok... you can see Max. But, more importantly, can he see YOU? :P Behind all those curls is one of the best dogs ever to stay!

He's calm, happy, friendly and easy-going. An absolute dream to look after while he was here. We call him our woolly mammoth - hee hee :)

And in case you're wondering... Max is a Labradoodle!

Oops! That's too close of a close up!


Say it with me slowly... Freddie is a Soft.Coated.Wheaten.Terrier. In short, one happy-people-loving-muzzle-drool-big-terrier!

Yup he LOVES his humans - good luck getting past him without getting lunged upon! A very playful boy and a curiosity for new things. Which pretty much is the whole house when he was staying with us :)

Well, what can i say? Flex would be the first official German Shepherd Dog (GSD) that we've had at MIBO! He's goofy, quite lazy at times and there is not a mean bone this puppy. YES, that is a 6 month old boy!

His movements are worse than his intentions... see the plants in the background? Knocked them off in one fell swoop! And he really just wants to play with the others... just that he's so big and clumsy, he ends up stepping on their tails, feet, tripping over them... and they all just avoid him. Poor baby.

Oh Flex, i hope you find your playmate soon... I'm sure it'll be a match made in doggyland!


I think when you name your dog Otto, you're in for a bundle of fun! The other Otto that we have is a Boxer and he's just as playful and easygoing as this Schnauzer puppy :)

So experience has told us that puppies don't stay very still for picture taking... hence these shots are taken on the kitchen... table! Well it helps that he's VERY food motivated... haha.

As you can see... easily distracted with the on goings in the kitchen (always an exciting place!)

"Can i get off the table and play now?"

Kimchi & QQ

Slightly overdue photos (cuz i forgot to take any!!!)... thanks to these boys' mummy for the pictures!

At first meeting, you immediately know who's the boss. That's Kimchi (foreground)! He was not a happy camper and didn't give in to your pleas and cajoling. QQ on the other hand, i think it took him all of 5 seconds to start exploring his surroundings and jumping all the way to the top of their condo!

"He ain't heavy... he's my brother :P"

Can my dog stay at MIBO if he/she is not neutered/spayed?

We get this question very often at MIBO and most often than not, the answer will be NO.

But we also have dogs that are not sterilised and we extend our services to these dogs with the following knowledge:
(applies to reservations made after 1 April 2010)
  • Unsterilised dogs destabilise the pack environment and are at a greater risk for injury by other dogs and to themselves as a result.
  • Un-neutered male dogs are prone to marking their territory (like the sofa, table legs, etc) and their urine has a highly unpleasant pungent odor. Their constant presence provokes challenges for 'top dog' status.
  • Un-spayed females can come into heat (even with "predictable" cycles) and their period brings unwanted attention/harassment from the males (even the neutered ones!) and dominance challenges from others.
At MIBO we fully agree with the following excerpt from Ceasar Milan - Spay & Neuter Myths. Please take some time to have a look at it.

If you are considering having your unsterilised dog stay with us, we would like to know the reasons why you have chosen not to sterilise him/her. Please note that we do not accept the following reasons:

  • for future litters (puppies)/as a stud or mate
  • that the dog will put on weight after sterilisation
  • that the dog will be less of a canine/change in temperament
  • you plan to have him sterilised soon. (Your dog will be welcome to stay once he/she has been sterilised.)
If your female is in heat/comes into heat during her stay, an additional charge of $15/day will apply from the start of boarding.
We give priority to dogs that are sterilised and there are limited places available to non-sterilised dogs. MIBO PDC reserves the right to accept or decline each dog on a case by case basis and the decision will be final.

We know that you'll understand that we strive to cater to all dogs and that these dogs need extra vigilance and require additional cleanup. This results in more man hours involved during their stay to keep everyone comfortable and environment pleasant.

Oooolala... now THIS one is a Princess with a capital P! She has no need to be friends with you since you took her from the comfort of her castle... so you jolly well just tend to her needs and bow down whenever you approach her. In my case, with a foot long pole!

But kudos to her highness for maintaining her disposition and not giving in just for food or affection! All hail Cookie...
