Nakheel reminds residents about rules on dogs

19 November 2017

Dear owners and residents, 

We continue to receive numerous complaints from residents about the lack of care and control over pets by some members of the community.  

There are two concerns in particular:

·    Unleashed dogs, leading to discomfort and unease among residents

·    Dogs owners failing to clean up after their pets

We are therefore issuing a timely reminder of our Community Rules and Regulations to ensure that all residents are clear about what is and is not acceptable. These regulations are designed to promote safe, harmonious living, and Nakheel Community Planning and Management is responsible for ensuring compliance at all times. All pet owners are required to follow these rules, and to educate family members and domestic staff so that they too are familiar with the regulations.

·    All dogs must be kept on a leash and under the handler’s full control at all times within the Master Community when not being within the secured boundary walls of a resident’s plot.

·    Dog owners are fully responsible for removal of their pets’ excrement in a prompt and sanitary manner.

·    Pet owners are fully responsible for damage caused by their pet, including damage to landscaping by digging, defecation or urination.  Pet owners will also be held responsible if their pet causes personal injury to another property, tenant, guest or member of the public.

·    Subject to applicable laws, Nakheel is authorised to request the relevant authority to impound and remove any animal from the Master Community if it is considered a nuisance or threat to the community.

We encourage anybody who witness any behaviour that contravenes these rules to contact our security team (04 3903333) who will take the appropriate action.  

For further information, please contact us at CustomerCare@nakheel.com

Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.

Sincerely,

Nakheel

Snoopy lives here in the Village and will care for your furry friends when in need!

JVT is synonymous with animal lovers. I believe we must live in the most pet-friendly community in Dubai. We only acquired our four-legged friend just over a year ago but I now find my daily walks are even more pleasant when I cross paths with chatty and happy dog owners.

Therefore, I was especially thrilled to find out that the owners of Snoopy Pets happen to live right in our own community. I came across them when I was out on a long jaunt around the Village and noticed their branded van in front of a villa. Having piqued my curiosity, I got in touch and found out that they are happy residents here too!

dsc_0107-2I am especially excited to introduce the rest of JVT to Jim and Lindsey. Having lived in Dubai for ten years now, they set up home in our community in 2015. Together, they own and operate Snoopy Pets down in Al Quoz. A hop, skip and jump from JVT, I think any of our pet-owning residents should look into boarding their loved ones at Snoopy’s warm and caring home! Plus, Jim and Lindsey are offering bona-fide JVT residents a nice discount on their services. Read more to find out!

If you make a visit of their kennel, you’ll find 13 full time staff members caring for your domestic pets. They can board your dogs and cats as well as offering a vacation spot for rabbits and tortoises. If you need help for a day or a week, Snoopy is happy to oblige. With their own vehicles, they also offer Pet Taxis to pick-up and return your animals. I’m sure that really helps out when hectic holiday packing sets in and one forgets to plan time to take Fido to the kennel!  Even better, for those routine vet visits, Snoopy will accompany your pet to the clinic and bring him or her back home, safe and sound.  At their facility, they also have skilled groomers to give your kitty or doggy a nice trim.

For those of us who may be thinking it’s time to move on from Dubai, keep Snoopy in mind to handle your pet relocation. They manage both import and export of your treasured pets anywhere in the world. A specialty of the husband and wife team, relocations can be made easy when you have an experienced crew to help out. I enjoyed chatting with Jim about all the logistics involved with the paperwork and airport transfer. When we head back to Europe, I’d surely be happy to rely on someone so reassuring. “Moving is stressful at the best of times. In the UAE, often families are moving at short notice and not always under the most appropriate of times or circumstances. We’ve got a one stop shop to assist families to move their fur babies with as little stress as possible,” Jim noted. Lindsey explained how they plan and find individual solutions for each situation which allows the family to concentrate on other areas. “There is nothing better than seeing the relief when people realize they don’t need to worry about their pet and then the joy on their faces when they are reunited following the relocation,” she commented. In all their relocation jobs, they told me their philosophy is ‘pet first’. They always focus on the best option for the pet, then they consider the owner’s expense and last on their mind is Snoopy’s profit.

With a ten year track record, Snoopy Pets has built up a great clientele. Lindsey clearly loved working there since she joined them in 2011 and when the owner decided to leave the UAE, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take over the business.  Jim agreed to give her a hand for three months on the business plan and strategy development and hasn’t looked back since. Having decided to take the plunge to become business owners in 2013, they clearly believe in their formula and are passionate about their business.

When I asked them about one of the most memorable moments at work, it was the story of trying to catch 33 rescue cats that stood out. Arriving at the empty villa, they had to put them into correctly labelled, allocated and numbered travel boxes. With the only hiding spot being behind the oven, they didn’t expect much of a challenge. But it seems all the cats figured the oven was the best place to hide and they discovered that cats truly can run vertically and horizontally up walls! It seems all the shenanigans were watched by two dogs who sat in the middle of the floor, who did not move throughout the whole process until the last cat door was closed. At that point, they very calmly stood up, walked to their own boxes without being prompted and simply laid down in them. Thankfully, all cats and dogs arrived safe and well in their new home.

dsc_0114-2I couldn’t get them to let me in on life as a husband and wife team working together 24/7. Surely, this brings its own set of comedy sketches, but those are not for sharing I was told! But they did tell me they love living in JVT with the ability to enjoy plenty of outdoor walking with their own three dogs.

If you managed to read this piece to the end, you’ll be rewarded to learn that fellow Villagers will be offered considerable discounts if you quote the JVT blog and prove your residence!  Go meet Jim and Lindsey today for all your pet care needs and enjoy:

  • 25% off all Boarding
  • 25% off all Grooming
  • 25% off all pet taxi’s

Let us know if you spot Jim and Lindsey out for a stroll and be sure to thank them for their contribution to the pet care community in Dubai!

Sharing the good news

The UAE’s Happiness Minister just announced plans for a major survey that will measure the level of happiness of citizens, residents and tourists alike. We can only applaud this initiative and be utterly happy to live in one of only four countries on earth that now has a Happiness Minister!

In this light, I want to share a community story that made me feel happy today. Yesterday afternoon, my friend and I were stopped on the street by a gentleman in his car. He was rather upset and related to us that they lost two little dogs from their villa in District 8. They had quickly escaped when the front gate was opened and managed to disappear. A sad little girl was home lamenting her lost dogs while this gentleman was roaming the streets in his car on the look out.

Luckily, I informed him about the various community Facebook pages and especially, the JVT Pets page. He was unaware of our community website blog or the very active Facebook communities. I heard from him this morning that after posting a picture of the little pups, a fellow resident got quickly in touch to say they had collected the lost dogs!

A happy ending story for the dogs and the family as well as a heartwarming story about the strong community bond in JVT. Let’s all make an effort to share the good news and lament a bit less about those minor things that we find annoying 🙂
