The majority of owners view their dogs as a member of the family and nothing is too much when it comes to making sure that they are healthy and happy.
But would you go as far as treating your canine friend to a five star hotel stay?
Australia's Palazzo Versace hotel is the first dog-friendly five-star on the entire Gold Coast to offer a package that entitles owners and their beloved hound to royal treatment.
The Palazzo Pooch option entitles the purchaser to accommodation for two people and one dog in a Superior Pet Room.
No ordinary dog food will be served, instead your four-legged friend will get Versace Crystal food and water bowls and a Palazzo Versace futon pet bed to rest its pampered paws.
The Palazzo Pet Package is priced from AU$509 (£351) per night for one dog. A surcharge of $80 per night will be added for a second pet.
