The Ultimate Dog Treat: A Stay at a Pet-Friendly Hotel Kelowna

Staying at a pet-friendly hotel Kelowna visitors use for their Okanagan explorations is a great starting point for your own adventures with your dog.Staying at a pet-friendly hotel Kelowna visitors use for their Okanagan explorations is a great starting point for your own adventures with your dog.

At Downtown Marina, we understand that a lot of our business comes from out-of-town visitors, many of whom stay at local hotels when they’re in the region. It makes sense for us to reach out to that community, which is why we’re happy to host a guest blog post courtesy of BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites.

 

For many homes, the term family extends to all members living under its roof—including those with four legs. From the time they’re potty training as pups to when they’re getting gray around the muzzle and developing a hitch in their gait, pets enrich our lives in so many ways. With the increasing availability of pet-friendly hotels Kelowna canines crave, why not create new experiences by including them on your adventures?

 

Here are a few examples of why it makes sense to bring your pet along for the journey:

 

It’s Cheaper than a Kennel

Sure, there are plenty of dog kennels out there that’ll provide decent shelter for your beloved pet, but from a dog’s perspective, nothing compares to being with their pack…er…family members. And by staying at a pet-friendly hotel Kelowna dog owners find convenient, you’ll be saving money on kennel fees.

 

No Need for a Dog Sitter

The other alternative to dropping your pet off at a kennel is to have someone stay at, or periodically check in on, your fur baby at home while you’re away. Unless it’s a friend or family member willing to work for free, this can also be a costly endeavour when compared to staying at a pet-friendly hotel Kelowna travelers turn to first.

 

Some Journeys Are Better with a Sidekick

Sometimes vacation getaways are better with a little company. There are plenty of dog-friendly day trips to be experienced in the Okanagan:

  • Dog-friendly beaches along Okanagan Lake
  • Dog parks (both on- and off-leash)
  • Hiking around regional and provincial parks

 

Meet Like-minded People

If you’re staying at a pet-friendly hotel Kelowna visitors count on for friendly customer service, chances are there’ll be other dog owners there as well. It never hurts to see how their pet hotel experience is going and possibly learn about new exciting adventures you can enjoy with your mutt.
