Doggy Hotel Ambassadors

Isn't interesting that you can spend so much time in a city and still learn new things. Just the other day I stopped in to the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for a coffee at the invitation of of a business colleague, and I was surprised to see two beautiful labradors sitting comfortably beside the check-in desk. I was told that Mavis and Beau had been guide dog trainees, but it turned out that helping guests check-in suited them better.

Now most anyone who has been to Vancouver knows that the city loves dogs, and there are many dog friendly hotels which allow people guests to bring their dogs, but this is the first time I've seen a 5 star hotel with dogs that work there!

What's more, it turns out that Mavis and Beau are just two dogs that "work" in the Fairmont chain of hotels across Canada.

If you have a hotel that you know of that has a dog, cat or other pet helping at the check-in desk, we'd love to hear from you.
