Dubai is becoming more dog friendly and I think I speak for all dog owners if I say that that is a great development.
Not only can you find more dog-friendly cafés and restaurants, but there are many restaurants that offer special discounts to pet owners through the Treats Card membership.
Members can also enjoy discounts of up to 50% with hundreds of local businesses on everything from vet bills and pet food to grooming, boarding, daycare and much much more.
