When we say “it’s a dog’s life,” we mean that life is difficult and unpleasant, but for pooches living in DB that’s far from the truth. Raphael Blet reports

DB also stands for Dogs and Babies. It’s a nickname that’s stuck through the years, likely because there’s a degree of truth to it, despite the absence of official figures. Walk around the community and it’s easy to believe the “dogs and babies ratio” exceeds that of most places in Hong Kong. Clearly, DB’s village-like atmosphere appeals to local and expat families alike – and what’s a family without a dog?
DB is in fact a dog lover’s delight, with its parks, beaches and trails ideal for long, daily walks. What’s more, many of us are lucky enough to live in large (at least by Hong Kong standards) apartments complete with outdoor areas, which provide plenty of space for our canine companions to enjoy.
This month, for all you dog lovers out there, we’ve put together a round-up of different pet-service providers, from groomers and sitters to vets.
