Michael said: ‘A lot of hotels are ‘dog friendly’ but we decided to take it to the next levels and create dog friendly treatments too.

‘We’ve had our dog Hetti for two years now, and last year she gave birth to a litter of sevens pups who were all over the hotel.

‘Guests loved seeing Hetti and the puppies and we enjoyed having lots of dogs around, so that’s when we decided to be a ‘dog loving hotel’ rather than just a dog friendly one.

‘With our spa treatments being so popular, it made perfect sense to extend this to furry guests too.

‘With so much open space and great walks in the area it’s the perfect getaway for dogs and their owners, so we wanted to be able to accommodate to both.’

The services offered for dogs range from dog sitting services and play dates with Hetti, to trips to the local groomers or in-room doggy essential oils massages.

Michael added: ‘The most popular treatment has been the dog de-stress massage, taking a pet anywhere long distance in a car can be a stressful experience, so that starts off with the de-stress massage oil and a pup dressing gown too.

‘The feedback we’ve received has really blown us away – dogs are part of the family now so, as well as just bringing them away with you, you want them to have an experience as well.’

As well as meeting new four-legged friends, Hetti loves to be treated to a curly blow dry and wearing her very own doggy dressing gown.

Michael said: ‘Hetti is so well behaved and loves to be pampered.

‘She was the first one to try out the dressing gowns and things and was very relaxed – every dog needs one!’
