Is America Finally Learning What Pet Friendly Accommodation Really Means?
Pet friendly accommodation has increased in facilities throughout America. It has come a long way in making its hotels, vacation homes, restaurants and other facilities expand their amenities, even going so far as making pet friendly accommodation a key selling point. While only 5% of the hotels provide pet friendly accommodation in the U.S., it is making advances.
