Walking your dog at these pet-friendly spots in the UAE

I lived in Dubai for 10 years from 2007-2017. As I observed at that time, there were only a few pets living in the city. I relocated to Spain and spent 5 years there and now I came back to Dubai to my surprise I have seen many residents having pets and on my return to this vibrant city, I brought my fur baby. Bringing him with me was an experience that I am grateful for. It was not very easy, but we managed. As my fur baby is a cat, we cannot take him outside with us for a stroll. I understand that he will be happier inside the house, comfortable and he feels safer. But for our other four-legged friend dogs. As the weather in UAE is getting better. This is an ideal time to take them out to see these different places in UAE and an experience that you and your four-legged best friend will surely enjoy.

It’s the best season for them to have a stroll even in the daytime. We have come up with a list of pet-friendly places in the UAE where you can bring along your pups and enjoy the nice weather.
