Hello - we are looking for some advice from expats with experience of Saudi Arabia.  We are considering a work posting to Riyadh, but a key factor is whether it is practical for our pet dogs to accompany us.  We know that it is possible to take them (legally and logistically), but are interested in views on the practicalities of keeping dogs in the Kingdom - exercising, general attitude of compounds to pets, availability of vets etc.

Any advice gratefully received.

Great question... if you get any answers I'd be very interested to hear what people have to say. We too are possibly looking to move to Riyadh and however much I want to bring our dog I couldn't move him there if it's not practical x
