Pampered pooches: Inside the world of luxury spa breaks for dogs

Bubble baths, massage, pedicures, facials, thalassotherapy mud baths, underfloor heating, concierge and room service are just some of the five-star luxury services being offered for pets. Britain is known as a nation of animal lovers, but now our pampered pooches can enjoy an even greater array of treats with luxury hotels, spa retreats and special pet menus so they can also enjoy the taste of luxury to which we all aspire.

Many premises are welcoming pets with open arms, while others are opening up especially for our four-legged friends. One of the swankiest treats would be to book yourself and your dog into the boutique Arch Hotel near Hyde Park in London, which is perfect for walkies. The hotel promises to provide dogs of all sizes with an unforgettable experience. Comfortable dog beds and delicious food cooked to order by their first-class chefs are the order of the day.

They can also be treated like royalty by booking the Pet Day Spa in Chelsea. You can choose from a wide range of spa treatments including a bubble bath, paw soak and pedicure, massage, facial scrub, mud bath or even a sparkle treatment so they can shine at a special event.

Luxury spa retreat for dogs

You and your best friend can enjoy a little “me” time together in a countryside spa retreat at Raithwaite Hall, near Whitby. This gorgeous country pile houses the first spa hotel for dogs alongside its luxury counterpart for humans. All sizes of dogs can take their pick from a variety of treatments and therapies and book in to a dog lodge with underfloor heating, dog concierge and room service.

Extra-special wedding guest

One enterprising Gloucestershire pet care company offers a package so your dog does not have to miss out on your wedding celebrations. They will look after your pet and make them look their best before taking them along to the wedding venue in time for the photographs.

Your pets can now enjoy the same treatments and services as you with salons offering full-day spa experiences, which would make a great birthday or Christmas gift. Treatments could include a hydro-massage bath, haircut, mud masks, pedicure, physiotherapy or Reiki healing.
