Pooch Hotel, a 5-star hotel and daycare exclusively for dogs, will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27, 2009 from 10 am to 6 pm, with free tours of the 30,000-square-foot facility, a 10 percent discount on all daycare package purchases and reservations, and great prizes. Visitors are encouraged to bring their four-legged friends.

“There is nothing more important than knowing your pet is safe while you’re away,” said founder and CEO Robin Tomb. “We love your pets like they were our own. Pooch Hotel has gone to great lengths to deliver a higher level of quality services and features in a safe, eco-friendly environment. It is the perfect home away from home.”

Pooch Hotel is set to redefine pet boarding options forever, with unparalleled amenities, an environmentally-friendly mindset, and a level of quality and care never before seen in the South Bay area. Located at 180 North Wolfe Road @ Central Expressway in Sunnyvale (only five minutes from the San Jose Airport), Pooch Hotel has certified PCSA (Pet Care Service Association) professionals on staff, on-call veterinary care, and easy drop-off and pick-up for clients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Home pick-up and drop-off is also available.

Custom-made hotel suites, all within an eco-friendly facility make Pooch Hotel a canine’s first choice. Its eight-hour daycare with 15,000 square feet of play space, customized exercise pool, underwater and land treadmills, and dietary programs and SPAW(TM), with aromatherapy bathing and massage, paw-dicures, fur color touch ups, Poochberry facials, and tooth brushing, create a quality stay for all guests.

Over opening weekend, a local artist will be available to draw portraits of owners and their dogs in exchange for a small donation to one of the benefiting charities. As a way of giving back to the community, Pooch Hotel will donate all proceeds from their Grand Opening silent auction on Saturday and Sunday to the Humane Society of Silicon Valley and Pets Unlimited of San Francisco. The auction includes a 5-night stay at Pooch Hotel, an afternoon tour and tasting at Napa’s Delectus Winery hosted by the owners, and much more. Human and canine massages along with manicures and pawdicures will be going on throughout the opening weekend, and many delicious treats and refreshments will be served from 4 pm to 6 pm both days.
