Recent studies show that having a pet is very good for your health and your social skills. Having a pet in Dubai could be challenging considering the lifestyle of this city, but you have a lot of possibilities to love and enjoy the company of a little furry friend here.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF HAVING A PET IN DUBAI

Dubai could be a very stressful city. Sheikh Zayed traffic jams, the many very crowded malls, and also the stress at work. Dubai is very competitive and here there is no room for weakness.
On a recent survey, many dog owners share that having a pet help them lose some weight. A dog needs to have at least a daily walk. They are very active and they need regular activity.
Pet owners showed a decrease in blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride. These means that you could be minimizing the risk of heart attack by having a pet.
IMPROVING YOUR SOCIAL SKILLS
Going for a walk with a pet (normally dogs, but in Dubai you could be surprised with cats and other more exotic animals) can help you improve your social skills too. A pet could help you to learn how to love, care, be responsible and trust another creature (four-legged or not).
You will get to know other pet owners interested in tips, vets, relocation processes, what to do on holidays, etc. And your friends will love to visit you to just be able to pet your furry mate.

For sure having a pet is a responsibility. So, you should never gift one unless you are 100% the person receiving it is ready to take care of it. Take into account that having a pet means having a commitment for 10-15 years.
The rewards are great too. They will give you in return a lot of love and an uninterested friendship and loyalty difficult to find.
When selecting a pet, think about your lifestyle, your schedule, your space etc. and avoid buying them. There is a lot of cats and dogs looking for a family at NGO´s and animal shelters. Check these links when looking for a companion.
and even in Dubizzle there is a Pet section.
