Take your four-legged friends

Calling all dog owners, there’s a furr-tastic event happening this weekend at Wild Paint House in Al Quoz where you and your pups can take part in a painting workshop. The paint studio uses non-toxic and easy-to-wash-off paint, so your pet is free to join in. All you have to do is pop the colour on their paws, their tail, and much more and go wild at the canvas. And of course, you are free to add in your handprints and other family members, too to make it a memorable and one-of-a-kind piece. There are three sessions on the day, so, when you’re booking your spot, pick the time that works best for you and your pups morning routine. The first session starts at 9.30am, the second at 10.20am, and the third at 11.15am. Each session is around 45 minutes and will cost you Dhs200 per dog. Book your spots here.
