18 Pet Paradises In Dubai: Beat The Heat At These Animal-Friendly Cafes This Summer

Summer is here, and we already know that means our pets get to walk outside less. But worry not everyone; just because the sun is shining more than ever right, that does not mean we have to lock up our furry friends at home. They deserve to enjoy summer just as much as we do, and that means hanging out with their four-legged friends too at fancy cafes and enjoying doggy treats. They definitely have a lot to gossip about their humans, that’s for sure. So here’s a great list of all the top places around town where you can take your fur babies, including some personal favourite spots of my own. And don’t worry about all my cat parents, yes there are exclusive cat cafes in this list too, we would never leave you out. We love all animals here, and think they too deserve special days out!
