How to keep dogs cool in Dubai

Summer in the UAE has officially arrived - but how can you keep your dog cool in Dubai's extreme temperatures?

It's a concern on every dog owner's mind when the season comes around; when and how can you keep your dog cool when out and about? What time is the safest to walk your dog on a morning and evening? Where can you take them for playtime outside of the home?

Admittedly, owning a dog in Dubai and the UAE can be stressful during the warmer months. Particularly when there's a lack of safe space for dog owners to enjoy with their furry family members - and dog-friendly cafes aren't great to visit when it's reaching highs of 45°C outside, with 90% humidity. It can be extra uncomfortable for one of the breeds that are at a high risk of overheating in Dubai, too.

My advice? Reach out to one of Dubai's doggy daycare centers and see if they're holding any playdates indoors you can attend for some socialisation - for you and pup. Plus, don't be afraid to change your usual routine so you can walk earlier in the morning, and later at night - and if your pup enjoys time outside, be sure to limit the time spent and provide access to shade.
