Where to take your dog in Dubai

Although Dubai isn’t the most pet-friendly city, there are still plenty of places you can go with your four-legged friend. Dogs are not allowed in public parks or on the beaches there but there are some great alternatives. There’s even an app, Flopster, that will help you find pet-friendly places in the UAE. In the mean time, we’ve made a list of the best places to visit with your dog in Dubai.

Arrows and Sparrows

Located in The Greens, Arrows and Sparrows have been serving up Instagram-worthy meals since 2015. Dogs are permitted in the outdoor patio area and they even have a menu of doggy treats and water available for your pooch.
