A man’s best friend deserves to be pampered occasionally, and the @Frits Dog Hotel & Daycare Centre is the first of its kind in Cape Town. The five-star dog hotel opened in December 2015 as owner Yanic Klue wanted to create a space where furry friends would be welcomed and taken care of.
This hotel is far from an ordinary kennel, offering top-class treatment to canine companions. Dog lovers around the Mother City are thrilled about this new establishment, which offers a concierge service, spa, day-care, premium rooms and day tours.
@Frits Dog Hotel, which initially started out as a dog clothing brand, is an innovative company that decided to diversify their offering to include a luxurious city hotel. Yanic named it after her pet dog, and co-owner, Frits Smit. After a trip to the U.S.A, where they have many stylish dog hotels available, she was inspired to open this establishment.
Bringing the idea to Cape Town was easy, especially with the number of owners who want only the best for their four-legged friends. Tailored to suit your best friend’s needs, the hotel offers scrumptious doggie meals from an à la carte menu, DSTV (tuned to animal planet), webcams to give owners a view of their pet’s stay, themed movie nights and a snack bar. There is also a vet on-site if any of the dogs suffer anything more serious than homesickness.
For the ultimate pampering experience there is a Platinum room with premium bedding and linen, a flat-screen television and a complementary spa treatment with daily dental care.
Every @Frits Dog Hotel staff member is passionate about animals and thoroughly enjoys taking the dogs on their daily 45-minute walk in a nearby park. If your furry friend needs a pamper session, book them in with a spa therapist for a ‘pawdicure’ or bubble bath.
The hotel may be a bit over the top for most, but your dog will certainly think it’s worth it! Plus you’ll definitely have a good night’s rest on your holiday knowing that your fourlegged friend is in the best hands.
