Pets are allowed in the UAE. However, as you are making the decision to transport your pet please consider the summer temperatures in Dubai, as they are often too high for pets to spend much time outdoors. Pets must be shipped to the UAE as cargo which can be expensive.
Moving to Dubai with all the family can be a big upheaval. Two of the biggest concerns for expats moving to Dubai are finding school places and finding the right home to live in. I always recommend when relocating to Dubai that you find the school place first then choose the location for the home but for many expats when they talk about the ‘whole’ family moving that also includes the DOG! So, the other big question is where is the best place to live in Dubai with a dog?
In truth, Dubai isn’t the most dog-friendly place in the world with dogs being banned from the majority of public beaches and parks. Also, dogs must be kept on a leash and/or in an appropriate muzzle in public and it goes without saying that owners have to clean up the animal’s waste when taking their dogs out. Furthermore, dogs must be vaccinated and registered, and are not allowed to become stray. However, even with restricted areas to walk your dog and extreme summer heat one only has to look at social media with it’s various local pet groups to see there are many dog owners in Dubai.
To help you choose the best area to live in with a dog Expat Echo Dubai have put together a list of some areas that are popular with expats who have recently been relocated with Move One Relocations and their dogs with Move One Pet Transportation. Read more

Eid is just around the corner and maybe you have decided to treat yourself to that last minute well earned break and hopefully some cooler weather. If you have, then don’t forget about your pets. Eid this year falls in the middle of the school summer holidays so many of the kennels will already be booked up so before you finalise your plans make sure you can get your pets cared for.
