There are pet care and boarding facilities as well as pet-friendly hotels. Now, you can get both.
Best Friends Pet Hotel combines the amenities of pet boarding facilities with the luxury and comfort of hotels. Since 1995, the company has been raising the bar for what pet care facilities should be. Best Friends centers offer individual suites that are clean and climate-controlled, with premium food, bedding and an extensive menu of custom activities and services available.
“We believe that pet care should be personalized for each and every pet. At Best Friends, we know your pet isn’t just another dog, cat or gerbil,” said Julia Geffner, chief customer officer at Best Friends. “That’s why customization is such a big part of our experience. We take the time to get to know your pet’s unique preferences and work with you to design the perfect stay for them.”
Best Friends is a 100 percent employee-owned company, so the staff is committed and invested in making it an incredible place. With safety as their top priority, they take pride in caring for the facilities, for each other and, most importantly, for your pet.
Additionally, Best Friends has been in an exclusive relationship with Walt Disney World Resort for pet boarding since 2009. Dreams come true at its Walt Disney World location, where Best Friends offers 17,000 square feet of air-conditioned indoor space, 10,000 square feet of covered outdoor runs and play areas, and a 25,000-square-foot dog park, where pet parents who are Disney guests as well as guests of Best Friends can take their dogs to play off-leash.
There are many different types of accommodations at the Disney location. And these accommodations can also be found at many of its 30 locations nationwide. These include:
- VIP Luxury Suites: This 226-square-foot suite package includes potty walks, two playgroups, a flat-screen television, webcam, bedtime story and, after a three-day stay, a bath.
- Vacation Villas: This 72-square-foot suite package includes a potty walk, playgroup, a flat-screen television, webcam and a turndown biscuit.
- Indoor/Outdoor Suite: This 32- to 48-square-foot suite package includes one potty walk.
- Indoor Suite: This 36-square-foot suite package includes two potty walks.
“We offer many additional amenities and add-ons to all of these suites, including dog ice cream, extra cuddle time, doggy day camp, pet photos and more,” Geffner added. “You can watch your dogs at play in our webcams, available at bestfriendspetcare.com at almost all locations.”
Dogs aren’t the only ones Best Friends caters to. For cats, there are two-bedroom or four-bedroom kitty condos with add-ons like playtime, tuna on a Ritz, and cat milk and cookies. Pocket pets like birds, guinea pigs, pot belly pigs and many other animals also have a luxurious stay that awaits them.
