The world should have been so lucky. All the Gulf states should be urgently following the example of Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea and even some US airports and screening all passengers inbound from Wuhan or...

Laila Saif’s road to Illuminations Abu Dhabi began when, as a hard-working executive, she googled Theta Healing and came across the original wellbeing center in Dubai.  Intrigued, she soon headed up the highway from her home in Abu Dhabi to investigate.

There are golden rules to follow when it comes to taking your dog out in Dubai (or anywhere, really): keep them on a leash at all times, clean up after them and ensure they stay calm and quiet.  If your dog is not calm and obedient in public, work on those skills first before venturing out. Supervised dog parks are good places to do this and many have dog trainers who can offer additional assistance...
