Fairmont Celebrates International Dog Day With Pup-Approved Packages

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is set to celebrate International Dog Day on Aug. 26, with a wide array of canine experiences at its hotels and resorts that will suit the needs of both dog and man.

From tasty fido menus to indulgent s’paw amenities, Fairmont has rounded up some of the best pet-friendly hotel offers to book this International Dog Day and beyond for a tail-waggin’ good time.

And if travelling with your pet isn’t the type of getaway your client is looking for, they can still pet or walk a pooch through Fairmont Hotels & Resorts’ resident hotel dog program: Canine Ambassadors.

This team of pups provides an extra special comfort of home by greeting guests in the lobby, accompanying them on walks, and filling in whenever travellers are missing their own furry friends.

At the Fairmont Store, it has recently expanded its specialty Pet Collection with a number of new retail items. Beyond the popular Fairmont by Roots line of dog collar and leashes, they now offer luxurious pet bedding including the sleek and stylish Movik Dog Bed designed with high sides for bigger pups and the Lukko Dog Bed for smaller furry friends.

For pet owners passionate about travelling with Fido, there’s the indoor and outdoor Fosser Pet Mat which is easy to carry and perfect for patios as well as long car rides and the Asnen Pet Blanket, a stylish travel must-have to keep pets warm and protected.
