Many dog owners were furious when a stroll with their furry friends was banned along Dubai Marina promenade after already having paws banned along Jumeirah Beach Residences and the adjoining beach. If you’re looking for the right community which welcomes your pet, you search ends here. Read on to find out the best neighborhoods around Dubai where you can go dog walking in peace!
A list of pet friendly communities in Dubai:
The Greens and the Views
Situated next to the beautiful Emirates Golf Club along Shaikh Zayed Road, The Greens and its nearby community, The Views feature apartment blocks comprising studios and up to three-bedroom suites. Dog waste bins are located around the communities so while you’re enjoying the lifestyle in this community, your pets can love it here too.
Both of these communities have pedestrian-friendly, partly shaded walking paths around lakes providing the perfect landscape to enjoy dog walking and cater to your pet’s needs with many veterinary services, pet necessity shops and grooming services. A couple of these veterinary clinics also offer emergency services 24/7 and pick-up and delivery for pets. For those who prefer a no-drug approach, some clinics offer alternative therapies and holistic approach as well.
Overall, these communities offer the top dog walking services in Dubai.
Set along the Emirates Road, within Dubai Sports City, the community offers luxurious four-bedroom town houses and four-to five-bedroom villas with gardens and parks which provide so much open space for dog walking and playing with them that even the pets look forward to their daily outings and meetings with their furry friends in the community.
The community has no services specifically for pets. However, the residents here can take their pets to Pet Corner, which is only 2.5km away. In case of a pet emergency though, the nearest veterinarian facility is available at the Dubai Polo and Equestrian Centre adjacent to the Arabian Ranches on Emirates Road.
However, there is no official dog park and your pet needs to be on a leash at all times as pet insurance is not available and if unleashed, the owners will be held legally responsible for the actions of any animal brought to or living in Victory Heights.
Located along the Emirates Road, Arabian Ranches comprises town houses and villas featuring two-to six-bedrooms. There is also a set of exclusive Golf and Polo courses and most of the villas include gardens and yards that provide plenty of space for you to enjoy dog walking in peace and for the pets to play.
Along with being peaceful and green, featuring abundant landscaped areas, pathways and parks where you can spend your leisure time with your dog, the community stands out with exclusive shops and medical facilities for your pets. There are numerous doggy-waste bins at various points as well, making Arabian Ranches one of the most popular freehold areas which offer dog walking services in Dubai.
Located in Dubai Investment Park (DIP), this community includes an array of apartments, town houses, bungalows and villas with generous garden spaces in the front and backyard, making them ideal for dog walking and letting them play off their leash— even the larger breeds!
Taking your dog for a stroll in the community’s serene, winding cobbled streets will always be gratifying. As for the services available, Green Community’s mall, The Market, houses a pet store, a supermarket for pet supplies while the on-site vet clinic and the Blue Oasis Petcare Hospital will look after your pet’s health. A 20,000 square feet dog’s park, Paws Pet Planet and the world’s first seven-star hotel for pets, the Urban Tails Pet Resort are located in DIP, giving this community paramount esteem where dog walking services in Dubai are considered.
What’s more, Paws Planet and Urban Tails Pet Resort also offer pet-sitting services with indoor and outdoor daycare facilities for times when you’re away. However, as far as pet insurance is concerned, as long as you keep your dogs on a lead and clean up after your dog, everything is good.
Located off Interchange 5 of Sheikh Zayed Road, Emirates Living is a collection of freehold properties comprising townhouses and villa communities lined by leafy cool streets, communal lawns and walkways, offering a perfect setting for dog walking.
There are ample shops and stores for pet supplies and grooming, offering a wide variety of accessories, delicious food and healthy treats for your furry friends. The Veterinary Hospital is close enough and Dubai Pet Sitting also offers their services to the area.
There are plenty of shaded pathways and recreational spaces which make for pleasant neighborhood walks with your dog, making this community a favorable option. However, like the rest of Dubai, pet insurance policies here also require you to keep your dog on a leash.
