Being a dog parent is like having a child of your own. You need to provide for them, teach them, and ensure their well-being. In exchange, we get their unconditional love and companionship. However, despite us humans treating them like human children, there are still limitations on what we can do with our pups.
For example, if we need to go on a vacation or a business trip, we might not be able to take them with us, especially if our destination is pretty far from home. For these instances, we will need to leave them with people with trust like our relatives. If we don’t have anyone, we have pet boarding facilities.
Usually, pet boarding facilities are pretty standard. They get a place to sleep, they get fed, and some playtime. However, in Florida, there is a high-end pet boarding facility that has become extremely popular with dog parents all around. This is the Orlando Canine Country Club.
Yes, you’ve read that right, it’s a country club exclusively for dogs. Its owner, Tomi Mack, had been working at country clubs all her life. She always marveled at how pretty country clubs are, so she thought, “Why not make one for dogs?” So, the Orlando Canine Country Club was born.
It’s a boarding facility for dogs whose parents have a taste for the high life. The country club has themed rooms, and these rooms have beds and couches inside them. Tomi shared that she designed the rooms this way so that the dogs would somehow feel at home at the country club.
She also explained that the guests are broken down into smaller groups, and each group has its own schedule to play or swim at the pool. This guarantees that each doggie guest can maximize the use of their facilities. The icing on the cake? A monitoring app for the dog parents who are far away from home.
