Everyone loves having pets at home. But, you have to spend extra time in looking after them, so be prepared for that. They too need love and affection. So, when one begins to hear statements like this, will drop the idea of having pets. Pet Hotel, a day-care centre for dogs, at Uthandi, East Coast Road, is the right place for the busy guardians who work away from home all day, and those who go out of station regularly, but do not want to leave their dogs alone.
“It is very difficult for working couples, who have puppies at home, as they need constant care for the first six months. We also provide weekend services, where you can leave your pets with us on Saturday morning, and take them back home on Sunday evening,” K. Arunodaya Reddy, founder, Pet Hotel, said. You drop your dog in the morning, and it gets to play, go for a walk to the beach, socialise, snack and take rest while you are working in the office. “The main benefits of day-care centre are that it provides relief from boredom.”
“We also allow people, who are fond of pets, but cannot afford to have one due to their hectic work pressure, to spend time, and enjoy being with them on weekends.” he added.
It has a play area of 5,000 square feet, two air-conditioned kennels, a resting room for the pet owners, skype facility, 24/7 CCTV, two full-time employees, a boarding manager, a doctor on call, basic first-aid facilities, and can accommodate 25 dogs. The centre offers full-day and weekly care. It is open from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., Monday through Sunday. The centre is part of ‘Pets 101’, a pet store on Besant Nagar Beach Road, offering premium services in pet training, management, and grooming.
Pet Hotel is located at 3/95, First Avenue, Third Cross Street, VGP Golden Beach Villa, Uthandi, East Coast Road. For details, contact Shravan at 9176878969, and Arun at 9841222223.
