The world’s most expensive package holiday for DOGS went on sale today – a £47,000 trip including limousine transfers, a personal chef and reiki healing sessions.
One lucky pooch will be treated to a two-week stay at Britain’s most luxurious dog hotel – The Paw Seasons – along with a raft of other luxury extras.
Olympic hurdling ace Dai Greene has even been drafted in to take the pampered pet for runs, before the lucky dog is treated to a spa treatment and a mani-pedi.
The dog will be waited on hand and paw every day of the fortnightly stay, and will have every meal tailor-made by a personal chef.
Surfing, board games and swimming are also on the cards for the solo winner – who will surely think they have died and gone to doggy heaven.
Doggy movies like 101 Dalmations and Lassie will be screened at a private cinema in the evenings – with puppy popcorn provided by the bucketload.
Designer Louis Vuitton collars and a Mulberry mackintosh will flesh out the dog’s wardrobe, so it need never look unfashionable during its stay at the Bristol-based hotel.
Animal behavioural specialist Stan Rawlinson will help the dog open up its life during one-on-one psychiatry sessions.
As a final treat, the dog will be given a bespoke designer doghouse built to look like their owner’s home.
The dog and its caring owners will walk away from the experience with a custom dog car mascot, as well as a portrait of the pup and a DVD featuring the highlights of the holiday.
The one-off package was put together by luxury consumer website VeryFirstTo.com and is available to one rich and very generous dog owner.
Jenny Hytner-Marriott, founder of The Paw Seasons, said: “Being the leaders in luxury breaks for dogs, we wanted to be the first to offer the most spectacular luxury holiday a dog could wish for.”
The Paw Seasons is based in Long Ashton near Bristol, where doggie guests have the run of a 400-year old Grade II Listed cottage and walled gardens.
VeryFirstTo boss Marcel Knobil added: “We inform of, and provide, newly launching luxury products and experiences to over 24,000 members globally and are delighted to now extend new luxury offerings to the canine world.
“We are embracing luxury from Gucci to ‘Poochi.’”
