Pet-friendly hotels see 132% rise in guests

Hotels offer anything from treats to acupuncture for dogs

More and more dog owners are choosing to take their pets with them on holiday instead of leaving them behind in kennels. They are increasingly happy to pay a bit more to be able to take their dogs with them. In the UK, for example, hotels that are pet-friendly have reported a 132% rise in bookings in the last year. Euromonitor Research goes as far as saying that the future success of individual hotels may depend on them being open to pets.
The hotels tend to offer something welcoming for the dogs. Some greet them at check-in with “doggy bags” of treats. In the corner of the guest room is a doggy corner with a bed and clean bowls. Other eye-catching perks might include massage, hydrotherapy and acupuncture for the dogs.
