This pioneering Pug was recruited by the holiday rental website to head up ‘Pawz’, a new division dedicated to ensuring the nation’s seven million pet dogs and cats have nothing but a ‘pawesome’ experience!
Frank, who can be seen hard at work in the below video, with his four-legged friends – Rocky the Border Collie and Misty the British Short Hair cat – have scoured a selection of Stayz properties to ensure key criteria is met:
- Spaciousness – both inside and outside the homes e.g. are there multiple rooms to play in and outdoor spaces to stretch those four legs?
- Cooking facilities – availability of features like BBQs. A dog’s got to eat.
- Comfort – not just any doggy bed will do.
- Relaxation – after a long day of holiday fun, is there a big enough bath to unwind in with a nice bowl of milk.
This has come after finding that one in four Australians* consider their pets as important as their children, with close to half the nation (45 per cent) wanting the furry friends to join in on family holiday fun. However, many are often left at home, with a majority (58 per cent) deeming domestic holiday accommodation as unsuitable for four legged creatures.
“Our pets play such an important role in the family dynamic but they’re often left out when it comes to holidays,” says celebrity veterinarian and pet travel expert, Dr Katrina Warren. “Owners often worry that accommodation isn’t appropriate or has strict no pet policies in place. That’s where holiday rentals are different; they allow the whole family to enjoy a break together.”
Frank, Rocky and Misty will continue to review the thousands of pet friendly properties for Stayz. To keep up to date with their latest reviews visit the website.
