What is a pet hotel?
As the name suggests, a pet hotel is a place where dogs and cats can spend time when, for various reasons, they are unable to stay in their own home. Hotels offer round-the-clock care, providing their clients with the right diet, walks and so on.
Will I know what my pet is up to?
OK, but what does it look like in practice? Do we just get the paperwork done, leave our pet in good hands and go on holiday without any worries? As a matter of fact, yes. Most hotels provide the ability to monitor how the pet is spending its time. Photos of the stay sent to the owners are standard. We are able to keep an eye on our friend on a daily basis, even though they may be hundreds or even thousands of kilometres away from us!
How do you find the right pet hotel?
It is important to remember that, as in any other industry, in order to choose the best, you need to do some research beforehand. Reading reviews from people who have already used this type of service is the easiest way to get an idea of which pet hotel to choose. If you do a good search, you can find a place where your pet will spend an exciting holiday at a standard not unlike what you may have been used to at all-inclusive hotels! The pet-friendly hotel industry is growing all the time and you might be surprised to find out how many places of this kind are already in your city! When choosing a hotel, pay attention first and foremost to the experience and qualifications of the owners. You may even find that your friend returns from holiday richer with the ability to perform a new trick!
Will my pet handle it?
Remember, every pet is different and their character will determine whether leaving them in a hotel is a good idea. If your pet is open to new acquaintances and enjoys contact with people or other members of its species – it may be a good idea. However, some pets, just like people, are introverts and a stay at a hotel can be stressful for them. Nothing forceful! If our friend should feel uncomfortable, let’s find suitable care for him, take him with us or be the one to cancel the trip!
Pet hotels – summary
If you are going away and have nowhere to leave your pet, and its nature allows you to use a pet hotel – it is worth doing so. A long journey is not a pleasant experience for any living creature, and a well-chosen hotel will allow our companion to spend time in the company of suitably qualified staff, who will do everything to minimise the feeling of longing in him! Thanks to the photos, which are sent to the owners as standard, we will have constant access to how our friend is spending his time.
