A holiday that comes complete with a personal chef, bespoke room, spa and grooming treatments, surfing lessons, therapy and even a designer wardrobe sounds like a dream. Too bad this vacation isn't made for humans, its made for their best friends - dogs!
Anyone who owns a pet knows how miserable it can be to leave your pooch at home while you go away for an endless vacation. VeryFirstTo.com have designed a fun-filled fortnight for furry fiends that they will never forget.
For US$73,000, your dog can be pampered in ultimate extravagance at the Paw Seasons, a luxury dog hotel in Bristol, England. The five-star treatment will ensure the time of any dog's life as it includes a range of exciting and unique activities.
For a fortnight, the "Most Spectacular Luxury Dog Vacation" includes a pick-up service from the Paw Season's hotel chauffeur, a stay in a suite where classic canine films from Lassie to 101 Dalmations will be shown on a screen while the dogs chew on specially created dog popcorn by a personal chef, who will hand-craft a personal menu daily! Never fear, your dog will shed the pounds with the many athletic activities in place for them - including a surfing lesson, running session with Commonwealth and World Champion for hurdles, Dai Greene, and daily beach and country walks (although ice cream is a given on the beach trips). So dogs don't get homesick, the package even includes a bespoke doghouse replicating their own home!
There will also be a chance to relax with spa and grooming treatments at the Harrods Pet Spa, reiki sessions with Rob Fellow, and a counselling session with dog behaviour afficionado Stan Rawlinson, aka the Doglistener. They'll also be able to run around in style, with a luxury wardrobe that includes a Louis Vuitton collar, raincoat from Mulberry, and a Bottega Veneta leash.
Want to keep up with their antics? Facebook and YouTube updates will tell you how they're doing! As for a keepsake? A solid bronze car mascot of your dog, and a portrait commissioned by artist Jo Chambers will be yours to tell the tale after their stay in dog-heaven is over.
This vacation sounds absolutely perfect - too bad it's strictly for one lucky dog only! The do-gooding dog who enjoys the vacation will also ensure that a donation is given to the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and the Institute of Cancer Research.
