This holiday, some furry companions may be treated better than you. Yup, while you may be looking to book that luxury vacation, your pup might be taking an even nicer one. A number of high-end pet boarding facilities, known as pet resorts or pet hotels, have popped up all over New Jersey recently offering amenities to make any pooch feel pampered.
Spots like Morris Animal Inn in Morristown and the The Madison Dog Resort & Spa in Wayne and Waldwick have things like luxury suites, swimming pools, in-room TVs, massages and gourmet meals. Camp Bow Wow, which has eight locations in the Garden State, even has live webcam feeds of the dogs for owners. K9 Resorts Daycare & Luxury Hotel in Fanwood has a chic lobby and hall designed to resemble Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and the proprietors admitted some pet owners have privately chauffeured their dogs to the facility.
So, what does the lap of luxury cost? Well, a family or pet owner who wants to put up their dog for a five-day vacation could spend upwards of $400 for a luxury suite at a pet resort. Then, of course, there are “extras,” like bonus playtime ($42 at one resort) or a turn on the canine treadmill ($19.95 per session at the inn).
