Dog Breeds That Are Banned from Dubai

Dubai is one among the seven Emirates in the United Arab Emirates. As a hub for trade, commerce, and development, Dubai is home to people from all backgrounds and nationalities. Due to this unique demographic, it is wise to research the local rules and regulations and ensure you are following them.

For instance, pets are a part of the family unit nowadays. Dubai has numerous pet parents from overseas who choose to bring their pets with them. However, before doing so, you should check whether your pet travel complies with the rules in place.

Animals & Breeds Banned from Entering Dubai   

Dogs are of numerous breeds and sizes. While dogs are brilliant companions as pets, there are some breeds which are bred for more industrial purposes; guard dogs and sniffer dogs are an example. To safeguard the public from potentially dangerous dogs, Dubai has breed-specific legislation in place.

Keep in mind that not every single dog belonging to any of these breeds will be aggressive or dangerous by default, but as some of these breeds are infamous for their strength and others are famed for their aggressive nature, this legislation is in place to protect the public from potential harm.

Here are the breeds of dog banned in Dubai, and by extension, the U.A.E:

-          Staffordshire Bull Terrier

-          American Staffordshire Terrier

-          Argentinian Mastiff

-          Brazilian Mastiff

-          Rottweiler

-          Doberman Pinscher

-          American Bully

-          American Pit Bull Terrier

-          Japanese Tosa

Any dog belonging to the aforementioned breeds or a mix or a hybrid of one or more such breeds is barred from entering Dubai. The U.A.E is not the only country to have such legislation in place; every country around the world has its own list of permitted and prohibited animals/breeds.

Aside from the breed-specific legislation, your pet relocation must comply with the import laws in place. The import requirements for transporting your pet are not that complex – you will need:

-          A rabies vaccination/titer test certificate

-          A pet microchip

-          A U.A.E health certificate

-          A municipality registration certificate

Complying with import and export regulations for your pet can be challenging when planning your move abroad. If you’re looking for help with your pet’s move abroad, or are stressed by the lengthy process, you can always hire a professional pet relocation company for your convenience and peace of mind.
