UK gets its first dog-friendly luxury tour operator

Thursday, 21st July 2011

Owners who want to treat their pooch to all the best things in life, including luxury dog beds and tasty dog food, may want to take a trip with the UK's first dog-friendly luxury tour operator.

Chien Bleu has opened in two locations: Blagdon Manor in Devon and the Milestone Hotel in Kensington, west London, reports the Guardian.

The news provider reveals that pooches can be treated to the Pampering Pet Package and "locally baked gourmet dog biscuits" and Cumberland sausage - which appears on the room service menu.

Erin Boyd, who set up the business, began her venture because she takes her pooch, Blue, everywhere with her.

She wrote on her website: "Named in honour of my pup Blue, my desire is to share my findings with others like me, people who are looking for a brilliant place to stay that welcomes dogs with the same enthusiasm they welcome their guests."
