During the holiday season, you have two main vacation options with your dog: bring them to a relative’s house, or book a stay at a dog-friendly hotel. Here are seven reasons to do the latter!
An Exciting New Location
Dogs simply love exploring new locations. If you bring them to a hotel, they get to enjoy the new environment and take in all the new sights and sounds.
A Dedicated Space
Yes, your relatives may pull out the sofa bed and bring out some blankets, but it’s not exactly world-class accommodation for your dog – or for you, for that matter!
It’s unlikely that your relatives who don’t own dogs will prepare a special meal just for your dog to celebrate the holidays with. A dog-friendly hotel, however, will have a menu just for them.
You Benefit, Too
If you just really want a little personal space this holiday season, your dog is a great excuse to skip out on a relative staycation.
Kids are fun to be around, but many of your relatives’ children will be very excited about your dog and may stress them out.
Lots of seasonal decor can pose a hazard to dogs, from toxic plants to electrical cables to fragile ornaments.
Do your relatives have other pets – perhaps even different species of pets? At a dog hotel, you won’t have to worry about your dog getting into a fight with your aunt’s cat!
