Top 5 Dog-Friendly Winter Vacations
Looking for a winter getaway but not sure what to do with your pet while you’re gone? There are plenty of getaways, especially at winter wonderland destinations, that are happy to accommodate your dog. Here are five pet-friendly vacations for you and your four-legged family member this winter.
The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch - Avon, Colorado
The Ritz-Carlton in Avon, Colorado provides Rocky Mountain luxury for both you and your pooch. While you’re out skiing or snowboarding, your dog doesn’t simply sit in a dog-friendly hotel room; they get pampered as well. The resort offers doggy room service that is fitted to your dog’s dietary and age-related needs. They also offer in-room massages for your dog.
Lake Placid Lodge - Adirondacks, New York
While this lodge doesn’t offer the luxurious in-room pet massages, it is still pretty plush.
