…look for a posh dog hotel instead. It is not a secret that many Hollywood personalities have a deep affinity for pooches of all kinds. Even if you’re not a high profile personality, if you live in Hollywood and you find yourself needing someone to take care of your canine best friend during the holiday season, you have a new option that will help you have peace of mind.
The Street has a feature for Hollywood dog lovers and their top choice is Rover Kennels, described as the “haughtiest dog hotel:”
Rover is more than just a dog hotel; it also offers cage-free daycare, training and grooming for an array of dogs and cats. All guests and owners are interviewed to assess temperament and ability to play with others.
Overnight guests select from standard rooms, upgraded suites and the presidential suite. Standard boarding includes a self-contained room with glass door, fluffy dog bed and all-day access to the cage-free play area. Upgraded suites offer free-standing platform beds with more sedate color palettes and catering options like doggy tea parties arranged with like-tempered and like-sized dogs.
…our favorite amenity at Rover Kennels is its endless concierge services that include an in-room mini-bar of pre-selected treats like turkey hotdogs, doggie ice cream and holiday dinners of organic turkey and sweet potato. Those looking for a more glamorous stay can enroll in one of the photograph packages that include art-quality prints and posters of your best friend while on their winter holiday retreat.
Um, I love dogs and I would not really want to leave my pets over the holidays. This hotel does seem a bit excessive for me though. There are other options mentioned in the feature article – they seem more practical to me. If you want to read more, visit the whole article titled “Four-Paw Holidays for Hollywood Dogs.”
