Are you looking for a new apartment to move into? Perhaps one of the biggest considerations you should make is choosing one that allows you to bring home a pet. There are apartments in Dubai that do not allow them, but there are also some pet-friendly communities that embrace cats and dogs. If you’re planning to get a furry companion soon and a place that doesn’t have a “no pets allowed” rule, this article is for you.
Pickles, your best source for the sturdiest and cutest dog leash, collar, and more, shares a list of all the pet-friendly apartments in Dubai:
Best Pet-Friendly Apartment Communities in Dubai
Luckily for you, there are plenty of options for apartments in Dubai. Some of them are close to pet-friendly parks, too, which might be something that you want if you’re getting a pet or you already have one.
Jumeirah Lake Towers
If you want a neighborhood with pathways around lakes where you can jog and take your beloved pet for a walk, then you’ll find Jumeirah Lake Towers perfect. That said, you must take note that their main park is a no-dog zone, so if you have a large dog that needs all the space it can get to exercise, you might want to take this into consideration. Those with small breed dogs and cats shouldn’t have any problem living here. Additionally, there are also pet-friendly cafes nearby, as well as pet-grooming centers.
If you want to rent a studio flat in JLT, you should prepare to pay around AED 33k. One-bedroom apartments start at AED 50k and could go as high as AED390k for a five-bedroom flat. If you want to purchase a unit, you’re going to need AED 419k to AED 7.7M.
If you are looking for a central location with easy access and infrastructure, there is no better place than The Greens for you and your beloved furry friend. Beautifully landscaped pathways around several ponds and lots of open spaces will be perfect for your daily walks. Despite being in the middle of the city, this community is really quiet and charming. There are also several pet supply stores located in close proximity.
If you are looking for a one bedroom apartment in The Greens, you should be ready to pay approximately AED55k for rent; two bedroom apartments average at AED80k per annum. If you want to purchase a flat, the budget should be from AED 1.2mln onwards.
One of the best places you can get in Dubai that allows pets is in Motor City. There are lots of open spaces in this community which are perfect for any size of pet. There are also plenty of pet shops, a vet clinic, and other pet-related services nearby.
Annual rents for studios in Motor City can go as low as AED 33k while flats can be bought for prices between AED 400k and AED 3.5M.
Dubai Hills Estate
One of the best pet-friendly neighborhoods in Dubai is Dubai Hills Estate. It boasts lots of green spaces where your furry friends can play catch with you and the apartments are excellent for pet parents, too.
Rentals start at about AED 55k for one-bedroom units. You can rent bigger two-bedroom apartments for about AED 75k. If you’re looking for a flat to buy, you can get one at a price that sits between AED 620k and AED 6.3M.
If you want a place that’s pet-friendly without compromising luxury, then Al Barari might be the one for you. This is a gated, eco-friendly neighborhood that allows you to take your beloved pet home with you. The landscaped gardens, streams, lakes, and even the members-only workspace, allows dogs in the premises, given that your furry friend is behaved and well-trained.
Rent in this opulent community ranges from AED 142k to AED256k if you wish to rent. If you want to buy your own unit, then you need a budget of AED 2M to AED 4.5M.
These are some of your top options if you’re on the lookout for a pet-friendly apartment. However, it’s worth noting that if you’re renting, the final decision on whether you can live with a pet or not in the unit is the landlord’s to make. This should be one of the things that you need to discuss from the very beginning to avoid misunderstandings.
