A well walked dog is a happy dog, however, Dubai isn’t the most dog-friendly place as they have been banned from most of the public beaches and parks.
However, Allsopp & Allsopp have discovered a few places that welcome your dogs as long as they are well behaved.
The Green Community
The Green Community, which is located in Dubai Investment Park, is a gated community and includes a display of townhouses, bungalows and villas with a luxuriant amount of garden area in both the front and the back garden which makes it ideal for your dog to run around and play off their leashes.
The Green Community is a very popular place for people with dogs as it is a relaxed and tranquil area to live in and taking your dog for an adventure will always be scenic. There are plenty of different routes and paths to take around the development and there is also a man-made lake and a park nearby where you can take your dogs and children.
The Desert- (Arabian Ranches, Mirdif, Al Warqa)
Driving into the desert is a fantastic experience for your dogs as you can let them off their leashes where there is an extensive amount of space so they can really stretch their legs. Behind Arabian Ranches or past Mirdif are popular places to go.
Jumeirah Village Triangle/ Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC/JVT)
Jumeirah Village is very up and coming and is located in the heart of Dubai’s most enticing neighbourhood, it is positioned between Sheikh Zayed Road and the Emirates Road. The community is constructed of over 2000 spaciously manufactured villas and townhouses with large gardens.
The community is very pet- friendly and there are plenty of pathways and grass that you can use for walking your dogs as long as they are on a leash.
Positive Paws is also located close to the Jumeirah Village area, it's about 10 minutes drive away from JVT/ JVC.
