Here are the top 10 things every dog owner in Dubai needs to know

2. Do a doggo staycay: W Dubai – The Palm

Not all hotels in Dubai are dog-friendly, so the ones that are are truly worth a visit. This is one of the Palm’s most contemporary hotels, book in a weekend here and allow your doggo to roam free!

1. Go and play in a dog-friendly park: Burj Park by Emaar

Few parks in Dubai are dog-friendly, but Burj Park Downtown by Emaar is a handy open park where dogs can roam free!

Alternatively, My Second Home and Petsville both have open green spaces too.

Unfortunately, most beaches in the UAE don’t allow dogs, but take a trip to Kite Beach in UAQ is well worth it for a day of doggo freedom.
