|I am an Arabic language major at my university, and an avid, lifelong dog lover.
It is very likely that I will go abroad for one or more short-term periods during my language studies to improve my command of Arabic, and possibly to work. If I went anywhere else, I would have no qualms about taking my animals with me, but I've always heard that people really just don't keep dogs in much of the Arab world (particularly Saudi) because they are considered unclean in Islam, so I have people lined up to take care of my dog in that event. However, I have been doing some research and it seems like having dogs as pets, while not as widespread in the Arab world, is not totally unheard of, and neither is traveling with your pets.
Can someone who is from/has traveled to parts of that region advise me: should the dog stay at home or no?
