Relocating Dogs to United Arab Emirates

What Type of Pets Do You Have?: 
Dogs
How was your experience finding pet care in your new country?: 
I was looking for a place to board my dog when I go on vacation, and it was very difficult. The price is not what concerns me really, it was the thought of leaving my dog in a kennel for at least a month. When I asked about the kennels here at the vet, I found out that the cages are fairly small, and the animals receive no play time and minimal out time. So I started pet sitting here. I just want to make people aware that there is an alternative to boarding their pets in a kennel, and also, that pet sitters offer more love, attention, and personal care. This is especially important when people are planning on being gone for long periods of time. Most people living here vacation once a year and are gone for at least one month, some people are gone for 3 months and more. That is too much time to leave an animal in a cage at the boarding facilities here. My website is www.abudhabipetsitter.com

Relocating Dogs to United Kingdom

What Type of Pets Do You Have?: 
Dogs
How was your experience finding pet care in your new country?: 
No. England is a very dog friendly environment. My dog thinks he is in dog heaven. Everyone who sees him wants to pet him and he is allowed to walk off the leash in the woods without negative commentary from other walkers.

Relocating cat to Malaysia

What Type of Pets Do You Have?: 
cat
How was your experience finding pet care in your new country?: 
Boarding facilities in Malaysia are normally done via the Vet. The cat will be placed in a rather large cage in a separate room. But there is a lot of noise as there are dogs boarding in adjacent rooms and the smell is related to the indoor closure of dogs.

Relocating Dogs to Qatar

What Type of Pets Do You Have?: 
Dogs
How was your experience finding pet care in your new country?: 
A word of advice about Qatar and dogs: it is not a good place to have pets here. We got threatened to have the police come to remove our dogs 2 days after behind in our compound and we had to find another compound accepting dogs, which can be challenging in a country where there is a shortage of houses. Nevertheless, we are now settled in a nice compound with a grass area (luxury!!). We didn't know before coming here that the Muslim religion does not tolerate dogs as they are considered uncleaned because of the way the clean themselves. Locals especially kids are not used to seeing dogs and just want to tease and throw things at them... We live in a compound with westerners so they are OK here. We had to board our girls for a few days and there is a great place in Al Khor called Pampered pets (http://www.ppkdoha.net/index.htm). Steve, the owner dropped off the girls to our house and the pricing is very reasonable : I paid QAR 90/day for the 2 dogs. I do not have a vet yet. I have not been able to find dog treats yet and I have been advised that, if I find some, I should buy the entire stock! There is a good website with some addresses as where to find dog food and accessories, but I haven't been there yet . I have been in the country about a month...
