How to navigate moving to Dubai with your pet


The prospect of relocating to Dubai brings many opportunities and much excitement, but there are several practical implications you need to consider, particularly if you plan on relocating and taking your pet with you. Both you and your furry companion need to find a space that meets your requirements. Here is some advice to ensure a smooth move to Dubai with your pet.

Check the regulations

First things first, you may have narrowed down your options for accommodation, but have you checked that your dream space actually accepts your four-legged friend? All accommodation will have by-laws that make the acceptance (or not) of your pet clear. Look for this clause or talk to your estate agent before making any kind of purchase. The last thing you want is to make a legally binding agreement and then realise your pet isn't permitted.

Ensure you have access to outside space 

After you’ve confirmed your pet will be welcome in your potential new home, you also need to consider whether you have sufficient outside space. This is particularly important if you have a dog, as they need to be let outside at regular intervals, and you also need to consider where they would be exercised. If your luxury apartment in Dubai is likely to be in a metropolis, you may need to reconsider.

Make your space pet-friendly 

You might be about to buy your dream home, but you ought to think about the practicalities of arranging your delicate possessions in your new space. If your dog is particularly young, they are likely to have bounds of energy and enjoy running around. It is probably best to put your ornaments at a height that will not be susceptible to damage. 

If you have a feline companion, you may need to think about moving these objects into a room that they are not allowed to access, as cats have a tendency to jump from one piece of furniture to the next.
