According to Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, pets are now on the payroll for some hotels in America. Though these pets may be treated with celebrity status, they have a serious job to do - improving guest relations by providing fantastic customer service. Below are a few places you could visit to meet these canine and feline (and avian!) maƮtre ds:
  1. Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana: Meet Chance, the Chocolate Labrador, Dog Director of Operations
  2. The Algonquin Hotel in New York City: You can hang out with Matilda, the 15 year-old Ragdoll kitty whose popularity has reached superstar status.
  3. Firesky in Scottsdale, Arizona: Bosco, the Cocker Spaniel, who was a frequent guest to the hotel, is now Director of Pet Relations.
  4. The Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston: Catie Copley, the Labrador Retriever, has her paws full entertaining guests in this 383-room hotel.
  5. JW Marriot Desert Springs Resort in Palm Desert, California: You can spend some time on the wild side with Thelma and Louise, a pair of Guyana toucanets.
  6. Hotel Indigo Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia: Indie, the Jack Russell Terrier, is the general manager's trusted sidekick.
  7. The London West Hollywood Hotel in West Hollywood, California: Garbanzo, the English Bulldog, greets guests with the bellmen on Fridays.
  8. The Guanahani Resort and Spa on St. Barths: Papyrus, the Fat Cat, and his entourage of fourteen felines have free reign in this Caribbean paradise.
  9. Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia: Wendy, the Border Collie, is the official duck and goose re-locator on your hunts.

Mom and Dad stayed in a hotel in Redmond Washington that had a kitty. He would go to Mom's room and sleep on the bed!

Well, it's not surprising that dogs are now being hired as staff in hotels especially one that is a Labrador Retriever. Based on my experience and on what I read from http://www.trainpetdog.com/Labrador-Retriever/about-labrador-retriever.html, the Labrador Retriever is a loving, lovable, patient and intelligent dog. So, I'm sure hotel guests would be very pleased with this dog breed and would enjoy their stay at the hotel.
