As a pet owner, one of the hardest decisions I have to make is how to leave my dog behind when I travel. My family and I usually leave our dog with someone we can trust like our relatives who also care for their own furbabies. But sometimes we just want to travel or go on a vacation with our dog and the best idea I could think of is a staycation.
Yes, there is no need to go far to take a break from the everyday stress because The Ascott Limited’s Somerset Olympia Makati is a pet-friendly hotel! :)
They celebrated its first Puppy Hour last April 30, 2019, emphasizing the value of pet ownership that brought together dog owners, bloggers, and a non-profit organization in raising awareness for a good cause.
The participants had a chance to tour around the facilities of the serviced-residence together with their dogs as Somerset Olympia Makati is the first pet-friendly property of The Ascott Limited in the Philippines.
Ms. Susan Salcedo, The Ascott Limited Philippines’ City Manager said, “Because there are only a few pet-friendly properties in the hospitality industry in our country, Somerset Olympia Makati offers a home for your pets” “Moreover, we are not just your mere serviced-residence because our service is perfect for those travelers or families who would not want to leave their pets in the corners of their homes” Salcedo added.
The said event also discussed the current state of the lives of military working dogs (MWD) and contract working dogs (CWD) in the Philippines through the invited guest speakers and founders of Hound Haven Philippines, Maxin Arcebal, CEO and Chelsea Pecson, COO.
I am so glad Somerset Olympia Makati allows me to bond with my pet and make for a pet-perfect holiday. The hotel is very accessible, clean and also has a nice ambiance to it. I would love to experience a staycation there for me and my pet soon. And lookie, my Hogan is really enjoying his loot. Thank you Somerset Olympia Makati! :)
The success of Puppy Hour was made possible by its partners namely Fur Magic, Sleeky, St. Roche, Nutram, Bow House, Pet Express, Vitality, and Whole Pet Kitchen.
