Pet parks, bakeries, designer boutiques … itís a great time in the world to be a pet. We love our furry little friends. So why wouldnít we want to pamper and even spoil them a little when we can?
Enter the pet resort.
Gone are the days of simply paying the neighborhood kid to peek in on your cat or board the dog at a conventional kennel while youíre away. Today’s pet demands more. Here are just a few of the amenities you can expect at high-end pet care and lodging.
Resort guests are pampered in state-of-the-art environments with fresh bedding, soothing music, natural lighting, premium food, on-call veterinarians and one-on-one attention.
Pets are treated to stress-releasing massage, aromatherapy, facials, and antioxidant baths.
Guests have plenty of opportunity to socialize and burn off energy on walks, trails, swim breaks, yard play and even treadmills.
Technicians provide nail clipping, ear cleaning, dental care, bathing and trimming for every breed and lifestyle.
Resorts offer classes in obedience and manners.
Offering pick ups and drop offs, resort vehicles can also take guests to off-site field trips for fresh air and exercise.
24/7 webcams are available so you can check in on your pet from anywhere.
