Is there anything in the world that you wouldn’t do for your adorable and loving pet? If you’re like most pet owners, you probably treat your pooch or cat better than you do most humans. And why not? Our pets are a part of our family and, more importantly, they give us unconditional love and ask for next to nothing in return. It’s no surprise that most people jump at the chance to shower their pets with anything that will make their tails wag, including designer home features.
As we design our homes to accommodate our own wants and needs, it is not uncommon for the high-end homeowner to include pet-friendly spaces and amenities in their home design.
How much is too much when it comes to pampering your favorite pet? If you’re in the luxury pet business, the answer is that, honestly, it never seems to be enough for pet owners. Entire industries have built up around treating celebrities and posh pets to the best of everything so they can enjoy the same luxury lifestyle as their owners.
And it’s easy to go into pet pampering overboard with luxury pet amenities and digs like these.
The Ultimate Dog House
London-based Hecate Verona crafts of kind dog manors that are loaded with real-home amenities and elegant design features that will make your dog proud to go to his room. Built by architects and master designers, the Hecate Verona line of dog manors will run pet owners between $40,000 and $200,000.
Other companies like Bowhaus nod their head to Bauhaus architecture with elegantly designed dog houses that have clean lines and lots of dog-friendly design features that won’t cost you as much as a real human house but remain designer-chic.
Just as a human nanny would look after your children and provide them with the fun, attention, food, and activities they need, a pet nanny is a day-long pet care provider who will do everything for and with your pet. You’ll never have to worry that your cat or dog is lonely again.
Pawdicures and Skincare
If you’re going to opt for smart dog skincare, why not pamper your pooch with deluxe nail care? Pawdicures are the new hot trend in dog luxury and it is easy to see why. Your dog’s nails are an important part of their life and look, so why not treat them to a well-groomed set? Pawdicure specialists can come to your home for in-house treatments or you can opt to indulge in a pawdicure for your pooch at a local dog spa and hotel.
Paws-Only Fitness Center
From agility courses to jungle gyms, dog-centered fitness runs are a great way to get your dog out and playing all day long while he keeps his mind stimulated. Dog pools and spas will not only let your dog cool off in the hot summer sun, but swimming is just as therapeutic for dogs as it is for humans.
Outside of the home, the luxury pet can be treated to…
The Ritz Carlton of the pet boarding world, pet hotels not only shower your pets with round-the-clock attention and activities, but they also give your pet the luxury treatments you would expect to find at a world-class spa including mud baths, pawdicures, bedtime stories, grooming services, and late-night belly rubs to make sure that your pet is happy as a clam when you come to pick her up.
