Pet Friendly Hotel of the Year Goes to...

Pet Friendly Hotel of the Year Goes to...

If you are scared to adopt a pet for fear that you'll never be able to go on vacation again, you must have missed the memo on pet friendly hotels! As a matter of fact, places like luxury hotel Holne Chase in England, win awards for being the most friendly dog hotel. Many establishments are opening their doors to our four legged friends, so there's no excuse to not own a furry pal or hold back from family vacations!

What goes into making an award winning pet friendly hotel anyway? Holne Chase offers a pet grooming parlor, thirty acres of land for roaming with man’s best friend and a gourmet canine menu with items like sausage, dog biscuits and bones on site. It almost sounds better than what you and the fam have planned!
