Vacation season is fast approaching, and for those clients who want to take Fido along with them on the family trip, many hotels are pampering guest’s best friend as much as the traveler. Now, Fido can live the glam life and explore the world, too, while the family travels.
Belmond has launched a Pet Set package available at properties around the world, and many other hotels are offering special services for Fido including special treats, massages, dog walks, and personalized amenities.
