Toronto to get its first luxury dog hotel

Finally Toronto gets a dog hotel fit for the most pampered of pooches. Urbandog, a fitness and spa facility for your pet, is opening a second location this March designed to be a concept resort for dogs.

Park9, located just minutes from Pearson airport, offers resort style boarding for dogs. Your best friend will spend his or her vacation in loft style accommodations with an indoor pool and playgrounds, and an outdoor splash park.

This is not the kind of place that crates Fido. Pet parents get their choice of having their dog sleep in a shared lounge or in a private room. For around $200-a-night your furry companion can even stay in a poolside suite.

In addition to the outdoor pool, which is chemical-free, the 14,000-square-foot facility includes a playground, elevated orthopedic beds, filtered water, aromatherapy, and spa treatments. Yup, your dog will get better care than most people.

Oh and no need to install your own nanny-cam, the facility offers live webcams so you can keep track of your pet from afar. The live feeds can be accessed from your computer or mobile phone from 8am to 4pm every day of the week.

If the facility seems too nice to pass up, but you're not scheduled to take a trip, you can always book your pet for their playcare service. Your dog can be dropped off for the day while you work or run errands, like get a manicure or buy a yacht.

Cat lovers need not fear, a separate wing is also available for cats.
