I want to get a dog. Do I need permission from the owners association?
- As a resident, you are allowed to keep pets in your unit but you must comply with the community rules in addition to Dubai Municipality regulations.
If I don’t remove my pet’s waste myself, what will you do?
- A notice of violation will be issued to violators who do not clean up after their pets as this issue affects the hygiene and cleanliness of the community. Repeated offences may carry a fine.
Are there any pets that are not allowed?
- You are not permitted to keep any animals in your home that are not deemed ‘household pets’. Examples of these are: poultry, cows, goats, sheep, horses, swine or wild animals. Please refer to the community rules, for more information or contact Dubai Municipality on 800 900 for the list of pets that are allowed in residential communities.
My neighbour’s dog barks loudly during the early hours of the morning and despite many verbal requests, this problem has not been resolved. What else can I do?
- You may contact community security, 24 hours a day or involve the local authorities for further escalation – call Dubai Police on 999.
