Pet-Friendly Places in Oman

Here is a ruff guide to Oman's pet-friendly places.

Being a pet parent in Oman can be difficult, especially when you're looking for fun places to bring your dog to that will allow animals in the property. This makes dog ownership hard in Oman because there are no public parks or restaurants that permit dogs.

While there are no major dog restrictions in Oman, the unsaid rule is that dogs are not allowed to roam in public beaches, and owners are advised to walk their pets during the early mornings or late evenings.

This is attributed to how the general Omani population, as well as some expat residents, are usually frightened or uncomfortable with dogs. It's worth noting in order to limit your dog's contact with other people.

Though far and few in between, there are still some pretty great public areas in Oman that allows pets.
