New holiday resort for dogs opens
A new facility has just opened in Spain that now means you don’t have to feel the guilt of leaving your dog at home whilst you enjoy the sun and your holiday. You can now book them into a five star resort, The Resort Canino Can Jane in the town of Roca del Valles just outside of Barcelona.
The resort is the perfect place for your dogs to have a great holiday too whilst you are away as well. It includes a pool which is specially design to suit dogs of all breeds and sizes, comprising of inflatable’s and water slides.
Manager of the resort, Federico Cano speaks of his belief in making a resort that is purely for dogs. He said: ‘I don’t see why dogs should not be allowed to enjoy a swim when the weather gets hot just like people can – especially here in Spain where it gets really hot. I designed it so that it was a little bit like a beach with a gradual slope that is exactly what dogs appreciate. There were a few other technical challenges. For example the filter system has to handle rather more here than might be usual but we’ve overcome the problem and can guarantee a great experience for dogs and one that is clean and healthy for owners.’
Dogs absolutely love it at the resort, especially in the new pool. It’s difficult to get them out of there however because swimming is so aerobic, it is so good for the dogs and they burn off a lot more energy than they ever normally do. It’s also fantastic for the older dogs that can’t enjoy the long walks they used to as they can still swim and enjoy that type of exercise. Most of the dogs enjoy an hour in the pool and then sleep for a day or two!
Many dog owners would argue their dog doesn’t like water but really when had they had the chance to experience something as amazing as this? They enjoy splashing around and will be swimming in no time at all.
The resort has over 20 years experience in dog training and currently charges £10 entry for adults and dogs and both owners and dogs can enjoy the pool and the water activities put on by the resort daily.
