Posh Pets in Tow

By Chris Boyle

A water bowl outside The Surrey’s entrance door is the first sign that the luxurious hotel on New York’s Upper East Side treats dogs as well as humans.

Featuring a “Posh Pets” program that is the cat’s meow, the Relais & Châteaux property spoils four-legged guests with a curated biscuit menu and box of treats from Bocce’s Bakery, a size-appropriate Surrey monogrammed bed, bowls, and a welcome amenity.

The hotel also recommends a dog-walking service, groomer, dog parks, and pet specialty services, such as picking up doggie cupcakes at Sprinkles and foie gras dog biscuits at Bouchon Bakery.

Plus, the concierge is happy to make reservations at pet-friendly restaurants.

Pampered pawsengers on private planes can be catered to in the same manner as their two-footed guardians with Sit ‘n Stay Global, which offers pet flight attendants and more to its high-profile business and entertainment industry clientele.

Experienced corporate flight attendants are also trained in pet first aid and CPR, and travel with pet oxygen masks, seat harnesses, and life vests to make sure pets are as safe as the people on board.

Sit ‘n Stay Global flight attendants, trained by Le Cordon Bleu and CIA chefs, also prepare and serve canines gourmet meals on china, bring along pet beds and blankets so Fifi can curl up for a snooze.

There’s no need to leave Fifi behind when escaping for a retreat at Red Mountain Resort in St. George, Utah.

Special deluxe accommodations are available to those who bring their four-legged pals with them to this scenic resort.

Organic treats and food and water dishes are supplied for Rover, who has plenty of room to run in Red Mountain’s spectacular 55-acre backyard and nearby Snow Canyon State Park.

The resort charges $50 per pet, per week. Or for those who don’t bring their own pet and want some puppy love, Red Mountain has partnered with Ivins City No-Kill Animal Shelter to offer a Pound Puppy Hike, where guests can take a shelter dog for a 1.5 mile hike at the base of Red Mountain.
