Dog-friendly parks and other places in Qatar

By qatarliving

Doha may not have many dog parks or locations where you can take your furry friend to play or walk. Dogs are tolerated in Qatar, but they aren’t openly welcome in most public areas. The Ministry of Municipality and Environment’s Animal Resources Department has said that dogs are generally not allowed in public places, including many of the parks. Dogs are allowed in specific areas, provided that they are on a leash at all times. We have picked up the famous spots for you and your furry friend to enjoy.
