WHEN you enter a business and are greeted by wagging tails and happy furry faces, you can’t help but smile.
That happens upon entering the Animal Hotel, owned and managed by Bo and Antoinette. After going through several gates (to ensure the security of your fluffy companions) you enter the kennel area. Outdoor areas are spacious and airy, and covered during the summer, while indoor areas are heated during the winter. There are five large play areas for twice daily exercise, with or without pals.
All dogs sleep inside to protect them from the elements and the leishmaniosis mosquito, plus window screens are fitted and mosquito lamps inside that burn any bugs.
The cats are housed separately, so they feel safe and secure.
Again, their pens are spacious and they have their own area complete with furniture and things they can climb and explore, just like at home. The cats are very content, and enjoy the attention from their cat mummy, Antoinette.
Bo and Antoinette put you at ease, showing you around the hotel, fully explaining everything so you are reassured of the highest standards of animal care.
Their reputation over the last six years has spread far with clients from as far afield as Madrid.
Both are enthusiastic about the business and the animals and have calming personalities that the animals and their owners appreciate.
You can join their animal behaviour courses, training owners to interact with their pets using positive reinforcement.
They work closely with local schools, educating about animal care and respect. This year was the third time that the hotel welcomed a group of mentally disabled people who enjoyed spending time with the animals, feeding them and playing. It is no secret that dogs can help sick people.
The centre has therapy dogs, owned by Bo and Antoinette who visit local centres with autism and Alzheimer’s.
Transporting pets can be a minefield, but the Animal Hotel, as a fully legal business, uses Traces (TRAde Control and Expert System), working with the authorities to ensure everything runs smoothly, legally and safely.
