Would you want to take your dog on holiday with you if you could?
Research by the hotel brand Mecure found 33% of dog owners miss out on going away because of their pets and 41% feel guilty when they do travel.
This hotel chain actually wants you to bring your dog on holiday. They are offering guests the chance to pamper their pooches with fine dining and other fancy treats.
As any pet owner will know, leaving your beloved furry friend to go on a two-week break can make you feel a bit guilty. While you’re off sunning yourself in Majorca, your dog is sent to the kennels to spend a fortnight wondering where you’ve gone.
One hotel chain is trying to resolve this by catering to dogs, too. Guests can book their dogs in to join them at 42 Mercure hotels for up to £15 a night. So, whether your pooch likes cities or plenty of countryside to run around in, there are plenty of destinations all over the world to choose from.
