Profile Last Updated: April 07, 2008
After establishing two successful Vancouver canine day cares, Karen and Barrie Balshaw recognized there was something missing in services for downtown dogs: a place to spend the night away from home. With this in mind, they enlisted award-winning SmartDesign Inc. to repurpose a historic brick building on Terminal Avenue. The result is a deluxe environment where dogs feel welcome.
Being in the Dog House Means Getting the Spa Treatment
Services at the Rex Dog Hotel provide a comfortable and fun experience for canine guests. Indoor accommodations include a special small dog lounge where the little breeds feel free to express their inner Great Dane. Bigger dogs also get their own lounge with puffy cushions and play structures. Even though dogs are welcome to play indoors, they often head for the outdoor play area, which turns into a water park during the warmer months. Pups of all ages can enjoy extra pampering with a sudsy bath using spa products formulated specially for dogs. Guests settle down for the night in the lounges accompanied by their playmates and an attentive human. Those who need more privacy have the option of sleeping in a custom suite.
Safety and Security
While comfort and fun are the focus at The Rex, safety is a priority. Dogs who stay at the hotel must have up-to-date immunizations. Also, to ensure a calm and positive environment, aggressive dogs and non-neutered males cannot be accommodated. Guests dine on their personal supply of food brought from home. But the most important service at The Rex is 24-hour human contact and loving attention. Owners can feel confident while they’re away, that their best friend is in good hands.
