Top 10 Dog Hotels

Going away or on vacation and need a great pet hotel for your dog to stay? Why not scope out a boarding facility where your dog will feel like he or she is on vacation too. We’ve researched the top dog hotel facilities that go above and beyond the traditional “dog boarding kennels” so that your dog will be a pampered pup while you’re away.

While Selecting a truly well run dog boarding hotel can be hard, we found that only a select few pet hotels come close with excellent standards.  But, our research did go beyond a look over as we take a deep dive into what really makes for best of breed pet hotels, in New York’s Long Island market place.  While we reviewed many pet hotels, pet sitting, pet resort and pet spa facilities this is by no means an exhaustive list.best_long_island_dog_boarding7
