Dubai is home to people from every country of the world, and they bring with them diverse interests in pets. This is why people in Dubai prefer interesting animals as pets, and go to great lengths to get the best diet, shelters and toys from the best Dubai pet food stores. This post describes some of the unique animals that people pet in Dubai.
1. Bearded dragons
A lot of people in Dubai are quite fond of having bearded dragons as pets. They might look intimidating because of their appearance, but they are pretty gentle and non-fussy. They thrive with very little care and since they are native to Australia, they acclimatize fairly easily in the Dubai heat. Over time, their owners begin to see their affectionate side and find bearded dragons to be quite loving. They also require little daily care apart from the upfront investment in setting up their temperature-controlled habitat.
Chameleons are fun pets to have and pet lovers in Dubai are big fans of these amazing reptiles. The main attraction of these pets is their ability to change colors and to look exactly like their surroundings. This makes them quite attractive to pet lovers especially those who are fond of exotic pets. When it comes to maintenance and looking after your pet, chameleons require greater care than some other pets on this list. This means that their owners need to be more attentive towards their health, diet and sleep patterns. The easiest way of taking care of a pet chameleon is to look at their skin. If the color changes unusually, it might indicate a health problem.
Pitbulls are popular pets in Dubai mainly because of their personality and small size. Even though some pitbulls suffer from genetic issues, pitbulls are relatively healthier compared to other breeds. Also, the short coat makes them pretty low-maintenance pets and all they need is a quick bath. No brushing and no trips to the pet groomer. Pitbulls are friendly, sociable, and quick to learn. They seek reassurance from the people around them and this trait makes them extremely lovable pets to have. Plus, they are extremely affectionate with children and even protect them with great courage and loyalty.
4. Shorthair cats
If there’s one breed of cat that breaks every stereotype about cats, it is the shorthair cat. They are very social by nature and enjoy being around people. They are not shy at all and are quite friendly, even with strangers. They also get along with other pets, so are particularly great pets to have if you already have another cat or dog in the house. Evolution has been kind to this particular breed as they are less susceptible to health issues. This means fewer trips to the vet and checkups. Because of their short hair, they are easy to groom and keep clean.
5. Yorkshire terriers
Yorkshire terriers are a bit unusual pet for Dubai because of their thick, furry coat, but still they are quite popular, especially with expatriates. Also, people who follow an active lifestyle find terriers to be excellent companions because of their high levels of energy. They will gladly accompany you for a jog in the park or a daily sprint around the block. They never seem to wear out. The good thing about them is that because of their small size, they can live comfortably inside an apartment, which is how most people in Dubai prefer living.
Tortoises are great pets for people living in Dubai. They are quiet and exotic creatures and fairly easy to take care of. It requires less work to take care of these tortoises as they do not require a lot of physical activity or particular diet. They are quiet, do not produce any odors and require less frequent cleaning. Also, tortoises adapt much more easily to the Dubai climate than most other pets. You can feed them regular vegetables or scraps from the kitchen. They are also quite responsive to affection and love it when you gently stroke their shell.
People in Dubai are extremely fond of pet goldfish. As most people live in apartments, goldfish not only beautify the home but are easy to take care of. Even the kids enjoy feeding and watching the brightly colored goldfish swimming inside their tanks. Satwa is the best place for buying pet goldfish in Dubai. You can also buy pet accessories and food from here. They only require a pinch of fish food and regular cleaning of their tank once every two weeks. For these reasons, goldfish are hugely popular pets in Dubai and the people are absolutely in love with them.
Dubai is a great place to raise pets, and the most popular species are those who can thrive in apartments with little fuss. With a little care and affection, these pets can make great companions.
