Things to Do

This is pawsome: 4 upcoming things to do for dog lovers in Dubai

While there are always lots of things to do in Dubai to keep you occupied, this list is for you if you want your plans to involve cuddling, belly rubs, and tail wagging.

Animals and Us Fujairah

Wishing to grow your family by adding a permanent member? Visit DIP to attend this Animals and Us Fujairah event. Twenty to thirty canines of various ages will be eager to meet you and, ideally, accompany you home. If adoption is not an option at this time, you may still help out by fostering, as many dogs are in need of foster homes for a minimum of four weeks. Bring the whole family, but make sure you register first.

Reading Dogs

Although it would be wonderful if our furry friends could communicate, Reading Dogs is mostly just a reading event where participants get to cuddle with a tiny pug named Millie. This June, our friend Helen Farmer, author and broadcaster of Dubai Eye 103.8, will be hosting the event at The Garden Concept. My Mummy’s Secret Adventures is the book she will be reading from. Children three years old and older are welcome to attend, and each child will need to pay Dhs50. Reservations are required in advance, as space is limited.

Doggie Adventures UAE

You may have heard about paint and grape lessons in Dubai, but we would much rather spend time with our furry family members than sip a glass of wine. This colourful event, organised by Doggie Adventures UAE, will see you and your dog produce cute keepsake artwork. You will be able to create your masterpiece using your dog’s paw prints and possibly even their tail because the painting session will utilise non-toxic and easily washable paint. Naturally, you could possibly put your handprint to it. Following the painting session, your dog will be groomed at Furry Travel Dubai’s grooming van while you enjoy an extra cup of coffee from Lanena Coffee.


I’ll give you two words: Dog… Yoga. It’s true that this exists, and basically it means that your hour-long yoga practice involves a puddle of puppies. Puppies are allowed to run about the studio for 35 minutes of yoga after 20 minutes of instruction by a coach. Ignoring the pups as they circle you will probably be the hardest thing you have to do, rather than trying a specific manoeuvre. Fortunately, you can play and snuggle with the puppies instead of ignoring their puppy eyes and stopping your downward dog position. Five minutes of relaxation and meditation round up your session. You’ll pay Dhs 250 per person, but you’ll definitely walk away stress-free and most likely with some fur on your clothes.
