Moving to Doha with dogs and a baby.

My husband and I are thinking of moving to Doha, as he has gotten a really good job offer. We are originally from the USA but are currently living in London. My concerns are that we have two dogs, they are on the banned list but we have been told by his company they can get him in. How dog friendly is it there? Also we would like to live some place nice, like The Pearl. Is that an option with dogs? His salary will be $250,000 so I would think that we could live pretty well. Any advice would be great.
We also have a three month old baby, so I would be interested in hiring help. Does anyone know how much live in housekeepers/nannies are? How is it driving there? I am not big on driving as we have been living in large cities for many years now and haven't had to. My friend told me we could hire a driver, does anyone know anything about that?

Thank you
