Where: The Petshop, Dubai Investment Park

Looking to add a permanent member to your family? Head on over to this event by Animals and Us Fujairah at DIP. There will be 20 to 30 dogs of all ages waiting to meet you, and hopefully, even go home with you. If you can’t adopt right now, you can even foster as many dogs are looking for temporary four-week (minimum) foster homes. You are welcome to bring the whole family but register here.

When: Sunday, June 16, 2024
Where: The Garden Concept

As much as we would love it if our furry family members could talk, Reading Dogs is essentially a reading session where attendees get to cuddle with a wee little pug named Millie. This June, the event takes place in The Garden Concept with our friend – host of Dubai Eye 103.8 and author, Helen Farmer. She will be reading from her book My Mummy’s Secret Adventures. The event is open for children ages three and up and will cost Dhs50 per child. Pre-booking is essential and places are limited. Email to book your spot.


Doggie Adventures UAE

When: Sunday, July 7, 2024
Where: Wild Paint House

You’ve heard of paint and grape classes in Dubai, but we’d swap out a glass of wine to spend time with our furry family members in a heartbeat. Doggie Adventures UAE has put together this colourful event which will see you and your doggo creating cute memorable artwork. The session will use non-toxic and easy-to-wash-off paint, so you will be able to create your masterpiece with your dog’s paw prints and maybe even their tail. And of course, you can add your handprint to it, too. After the painting session is over, your pup will get cleaned up at the grooming van from Furry Travel Dubai, while you sip on a free cup of coffee from Lanena Coffee.



When: Ongoing 
Where: Al Safa

Two words for you – Dog… Yoga. Yes, it is a thing, and yes, essentially it means your one-hour yoga session includes a puddle of puppies. It starts with 20 minutes of pure yoga led by a coach, followed by 35 minutes of yoga where puppies will be let loose in the space. The toughest thing you’ll probably do isn’t a particular move, but to ignore the pups as they surround you. Thankfully, you don’t have to ignore those puppy eyes, and you can stop your downward dog pose and play and cuddle with the puppies. Your session ends with five minutes of relaxation and meditation. It will cost you Dhs250 per person, but you’re guaranteed to leave stress-free, and probably covered in a little bit of fur.
