BREVARD PET SPAS: Feature Luxurious Spacious Suites, Attentive Staff To Pamper Guests
By Space Coast Daily // June 14, 2018
Canine and Feline Luxury At Its Finest
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Right here in Brevard are several five-star resorts that pamper the heart, body and soul of its guests. Luxurious, spacious suites? Check. Attentive staff? Check. Brimming social calendar? Check. Gourmet dining? Check. Ample opportunities for stimulating exercise? Check. Spa? Check.
There is only one problem with this picture of sybaritic enjoyment: these resorts are for pets, not humans.
Consider Melbourne’s 13,000-square-feet Dog Spot Hotel complex, one of the premier pet resorts on the Space Coast, where canine guests are escorted upon check-in to one of 77 suites, with nary one of those ugly and boring traditional kennels in sight.
Each suite is fully stocked with a clean and comfy bed, toys and fresh bowls for food and water.
Piped-in music calms doggy nerves that may have been jangled by not being included in their humans’ vacation plans. As for diet, Dog Spot provides Purina EN, a premium dog food that promotes a healthy digestive tract.
For the kitties, spacious “townhouses” and kitty condos located far apart from noisy canines afford the felines a relaxing and tranquil environment.
Each cat is let out individually every day into the “play” wing to lounge and explore the hideaways and kitty forts provided to stimulate their minds.
ACTIVITIES ARE CAREFULLY PLANNED
Of course, the dogs’ activities are also carefully planned. For mental stimulus, Dog Spot offers a daycare program that provides six to seven hours of exercise daily on hypoallergenic grass play yards.
Dog Spot hotelier Anna Jayne makes certain her staff matches each dog with a group of five to eight other dogs to let them swim, run and play to their heart’s content while providing 100 percent human supervision. Staff is trained to assess each dog’s personality in order to find the best playgroup for them.
In between play periods, the doggies can rest inside, perhaps enjoying special Yappy Hour treats such as a steamed knuckle/ham bone or a peanut butter kong toy. Doggy hot dogs and ice cream are also available a la carte.
Should the pooch have behavioral issues, Dog Spot Hotel trainer Wisney Fernandez can step in to provide gentle guidance with issues such as excessive jumping and barking. Because the family dog deserves the best, Dog Spot Hotel also offers full spa services, including hair styling, teeth brushing and massages.
The entire facility is climate controlled, so there is never an issue of the animals overheating or being cold.
Dog Spot’s motto of “We take the bored out of boarding” is an understatement, for the pampered pets that use Dog Spot won’t have time to ever become bored.
BOARDING, PET SITTING INDUSTRY EXPLODING
Upscale facilities such as Dog Spot have tuned into America’s love affair with our 96 million cats and 83 million dogs. We spend approximately $60 billion on our pets each year, say organizers of the Global Pet Expo, a huge trade show that draws thousands of industry professionals to Orlando each year.
The fastest growth area in the industry, with an annual growth rate of more than six percent, is boarding, grooming, training and pet sitting.
Fueling the interest in top-of-the-line resorts for animals are the baby boomers, whose children have flown the nest. With cash to spare and time to travel, the boomers have the interest and wherewithal to leave their animals in the best of hands.
