Deciding to leave your pet with a company is never a simple choice. After all, our pets are extended family members. We want to ensure those looking after our pets are responsible, caring, and loving. Unfortunately, with so many different locations, it’s hard to know which places are best.
Always ask the facility if you can tour the facility before booking. Take a look at the actual rooms on-site and the condition of the dogs. Always ask the staff questions you have about their daily routine. Make sure you understand what services are included and which ones will be extra. Finally, make sure you consider feedback from other clients.
To help you make an informed decision, here are some of the best pet hotels in Pittsburg:
The Golden Bone Pet Resort
Having been in operation by the same owner for over 30 years, this facility knows a thing or two about happy clients. This facility offers private rooms for all pets within the center, complete with bedding (a hammock or lambskin bed). All areas within the resort are heated and air-conditioned for optimal living conditions. You’ll also find 28 skylights, nine high-definition televisions, and constant care and security.
Camp Bow Wow
Located in Pittsburgh Highland Park, this center believes in all-day play without the extra fees. They strive to give owners flat-rate pricing with no hidden fees. Your pet will enjoy spacious play areas, complete with live webcam functionality. As the facility offers flat-rate pricing, you’ll never have to pay extras for playtime or affection; their base rates always include these services. All pups will receive a private “cozy cabin” to stay in at the facility, complete with a nightly treat.
Pittsburgh Pet Concierge
Unlike most facilities, the Pittsburgh Pet Concierge brings home-style boarding without cages or concrete floors. That’s because the owners of this facility live at the facility. Your pet will receive 24/7 care and interaction, 365 days a year. This concierge service is able to administer medications, provide continuous monitoring by vet techs, or provide endless love throughout your pet’s stay.
Friendly Paws Pet Resort
This resort believes that dogs should be outside and socializing as much as possible. That’s why your dog will spend most of the day interacting with other guests. They also have a sectioned-off area for dogs that are hesitant with other canines. Your dog will receive their own space within the facility, complete with a raised bed to sleep on. Dogs follow a strict routine that includes three meals a day, rest times, and ongoing playtime regimens.
Hounds Town USA
With a core belief that your dog is family and deserves a vacation just as much as their human family, Hounds Town offers a fully interactive play experience for all pups staying at the hotel. Dogs are slowly introduced while enjoying indoor and outdoor play sessions. Owners will be able to choose from a luxury suite or private townhouse for their stay, complete with in-room feeding (twice a day). Add-on services like grooming, bathing, and nail trimming are also available.
Tips to consider before choosing a dog hotel:
– Always make sure that you tour the facility prior to booking with the location. While photos and videos can help make your decision, in-person tours can give you an unfiltered review of where your pet will be staying.
– Consider your pet’s personality and how that matches with the pet resort. A shy dog may not enjoy a play-based atmosphere, but the proper support can encourage socialization. Always talk to staff before making the decision to book.
– Talk to previous clients whenever possible. Ask the resort for any references they have of past guests. While many will have testimonials on their website, it’s essential to find out how other owners have found the location.
