The main synonym for Dubai is exclusivity. You won’t surprise anyone here with expensive things, it is important to have something that no one else has. This rule also applies to pets. Here, it is in the order of things to have a cheetah, tiger or lion as a pet. Many Dubai residents post photos and videos of predators on social media. Seeing a cheetah sitting in the front seat of a luxury car isn’t a problem either, though.
If you’re not ready to get an exotic pet to make you feel like you’re in Dubai, then you can rent a luxury car or take a land cruiser out for a spin. You might even see a wild animal in the front seat in the next row on the road. Moreover, renting a car in Dubai has become an incredibly affordable and fast service. It may not be a good idea to hire a car and drive a lion in it, but the car rental representatives will help you choose the most unusual and suitable car for you to make your driving experience unforgettable.
Before you decide to get a pet in the UAE, it’s important to check with your rental property owner or the developer of your area to see if pets are allowed. There are some pet-friendly areas in Dubai, like The Greens & Views, Motor City, JLT, The Lakes, The Springs, Arabian Ranches, and The Palm Jumeirah. There are also special parks where you can walk dogs without a leash. For example, there’s a 1,000 sq. m park for all dog breeds allowed in the UAE.
Dogs in public places
Dogs are not allowed in public places like shops, restaurants, parks, and beaches in Dubai. They must be on a leash at all times when in public. This is in accordance with local law. Pets are also not allowed in stores, malls, cafes, and restaurants.
Parks and dog walking areas
If you have a dog, it’s important to let them socialize with other dogs in a new environment from time to time. Here in the Emirates, we have many dog parks where you can take your furry friend to play and run around off-leash. Two of the most popular dog parks in Dubai are My Second Home and Paws Pet Planet, which are located close to each other in Dubai Investment Park.
The UAE never ceases to amaze everyone in every direction. You will be welcomed at the Cloud 9 Pet Hotel (C9), where there is a veterinary clinic, grooming services on site, 3 parks for walking with animals, one of them is indoor, and there is also a playroom for cats. C9 offers trainers and personal chauffeurs for your pets, if they need to be picked up from home or vice versa.
My Second Home Luxury Pet Resort & Spa is one of the largest dog park hotels in the world, located in the DIP area. This hotel offers recreation and free games for dogs, a swimming pool, a hotel for pets, and a training school.
Unfortunately, there are no companies that offer pet insurance services in the UAE. However, you can consider subscribing to a veterinary clinic, which will help reduce your medical bills for your pet.
