Did you hear something like no dogs in Dubai, or that dogs are strictly prohibited in Dubai? Well, there seems to be some disconnect between the misconceptions above and the reality of dog-owning in this Middle East, considering the number of people you may encounter, as an expatriate, who has not just one, but several dogs.
Dubai has so many fascinating places for the people, opulent villas that are being made and sold every year, like the recent District One Dubai Villas for sale are something that might get your attention. Just like that, Dubai has friendly places for your dogs too.
Westerners have an attitude of loving the dogs in general, as dogs are considered a man’s best friend.
However, when it comes to these furry little animals, there are certain cultural practices that prevent dog-owners from taking their pets to certain areas.
For instance, the Italians and French are also animal-loving cultures, generally speaking. As are all the English and the New Zealanders, indeed. But it would horrify the latter two to see people carry dogs to restaurants and other locations where food is cooked or sold.
But it does not mean the English or Kiwis are dog-haters, rather they just have a different collection of cultural traditions at play.
Similarly, in Dubai, there are certain areas where dogs are considered allowed, while in some places, their entry may be restricted. You can review the following guide to learn more about the dog-friendly places in Dubai.
THE CLIMATE ISN’T FRIENDLY AT ALL
Two points to know: the outside temperature can often exceed 50 ° C in the summer months and is routinely in the mid-40s regularly. Lastly, many expats prefer to live in high-rise apartments; there are, of course, villas with yards and gardens available, but they appear to be much more costly to rent and certainly more costly in terms of utility costs.
Do you want to submit this to your dog when you’re going to Dubai? Yeah, apartments and villas are air-conditioned, but dogs need exercise and you might find that you provide them with more than you can cope with daily.
Dubai loves dog-owners. Looking at the statistics, it can be stated that most of the dog-owners didn’t come to Dubai with their dogs, but they purchased them from the city, and they’re going to take them with them when they go. Through pet-shops and specialist breeding centres, you can buy almost any breed of dog you can think of here.
There is also a flourishing animal-rescue, adopt-a-dog program, in addition to this way of coming by a dog, which seeks to rehome the abandoned or unwanted members of the dog community of Dubai.
YOU CANNOT TRAVEL TO ALL OF THE PLACES WITH DOGS
That’s true generally. Dubai may be a lot more strict than Argentina or Germany, but perhaps no more strict than parts of the United States. Recently, many of Dubai’s up-market Marina area’s dog-loving residents were incensed because the area’s developers placed a ban on pets, including leashes, on walks along the waterfront promenade.
Other modern and attractive locations, such as the Jumeirah Beach Residence in Dubai, still have dog bans in place, but at least they will be signed, so look out for signs telling you whether or not dogs are allowed.
Dubai is now the business melting pot where you couldn’t have a huge, aggrieved population like dog-owners with nowhere to exercise their dogs.
In the Al Barsha sector, one such service is provided (out behind the Mall of the Emirates). This seems to be an informal agreement so far, using an area of undeveloped property, which appears to be free at the time of writing, but this may change, or the land may be taken for production.
The facilities provided by DogWalk to dog owners are very Dubai-like. We are now slipping quickly into the country of “if you can pay for it, we can provide it”.
Dubai is growing rapidly in every sector of business, whatever you think of, this city has already got some established business of that niche. Talking about the property, it is considered that no other city can compete with Dubai when it is about the properties. Like the recent Port De La Mer apartments for sale, there are hundreds of opportunities like that every year in Dubai. You can settle down in the city even with your pet dog and they will surely enjoy this city too.
