Multiple studies indicate that dogs help alleviate stress and anxiety and are the most popular pets on the planet. Our canine pals unquestionably deserve an annual celebration, that’s why every August we observe National Dog Month.
In honor of this fun month-long holiday, we’ve rounded up a handful of ways you and your pooch can celebrate National Dog Month together at the nation’s top dog-friendly hotels.
Treat your dog to a private jet experience. VistaJet, a private global aviation company, has just launched VistaPet. Created to make flying with pets as simple as possible, the program was designed in collaboration with experienced veterinary practitioners, groomers, dieticians and coaches to respond to the needs and challenges faced when traveling with animals. From care kits, sleep mats and balanced menus, to travel advice, global flying regulations and fear of flying courses, all VistaJet passengers can expect the same exceptional service and support.
Bellyard – Atlanta, GA
West Midtown Atlanta’s newest dog-friendly boutique hotel Bellyard is going all out for National Dog Month. Guests can bring their furry friend and sip a series of dog-themed cocktails with bone-shaped ice cubes that benefit Lifeline Animal Project. Pups can enjoy a special “beer” just for them. Upon check-in, visitors will notice a colorful canvas behind the front desk – the canvas was “painted” by Buckeye, an adoptable dog looking for his forever home. By putting the canvas and paint inside a plastic bag, Buckeye was able to lick his own design. If a guest decides they want to adopt Buckeye, Bellyard will pay his adoption fee on the spot.
