Travel and hotel for dogs and owners

Posted: Updated:

Lots of people love their pet so much they hate to be apart even on vacation. So one New York City hotel is offering to put up you and your pooch. The Out Hotel in Hell's Kitchen will soon be offering two dog house suites. For $349 a night you can check in with your pet.

Your pup will have its own doggy door leading to a private courtyard fixed up with a dog house and fake fire hydrant. And for the nervous owner if you head out for dinner you can watch your pup on a live webcam.

Caring for and catering to you dog or cat is of course a booming business. Adam Pokornicky just developed a new app called Doggy Bnb. Much like LinkedIn or Facebook, users create a network of pet-friendly people. And when you need a sitter for your dog or cat simply send out a "woof" into your network. You let your connections know what you are willing to pay for one of them to pet-sit.

It gives you the flexibility whether you go away or on a trip to be able to find secure reliable trustworthy pet care.

Animal lovers we talked to seem to like anything that makes it easier for them to stay close to that unconditional love.
