Who is the MLD guest...?

Must Love Dogs hotel suites were specifically created for small 'toy' dog breeds as well as certain medium 'lapdog' breeds e.g. King Charles Spaniels & Miniature Schnauzers, who are accustomed to living indoors and are used to sleeping in Mom & Dad's bed, and lying on the couch ‘watching’ TV with their parents. We cater to 'babies' who are permanently indoors and always allowed on the couch or bed. Our clientele is of the more refined variety of doggie breeds, and our suites are aimed at pampered, calmer breeds who are respectful of furniture, bedding and decor. 

MLD's larger suites are suitable for Mom's and Dad's who want more space for their very spoiled, precious little ones, and want the ultimate in luxurious care. Or for larger families of little doggies who want to have their own amazing holiday pad. Do you want your babies to have space to walk around & play during the long rainy seasons – (like their own real house?) – Not ONLY a place to sleep? - Well these suites are the answer! We have small, medium and large suite options for all your little pampered babies needs...

Please note...

Definition of a Lapdog: A pet dog, small and docile enough to be cuddled in ones' lap. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications/Breeds)

Size Requirement: No bigger than an average Cocker Spaniel or a Mini Schnauzer /(Knee high for an average lady) *Please note that this is purely a guideline, and a formal interview / assessment will still be required.

Age Requirement: Must Love Dogs only cares for babies four months and older with their first 3 sets of inoculations administered.

Sterilization: All new guests, (Male & Female) are required to be sterilized from the age of six months. This ensures a calmer, happier hotel environment in our unique social set-up.

Illnesses: Dogs with chronic diseases or disorders e.g. Epilepsy & Diabetes are not accepted into our hotel, but are rather encouraged to be boarded by their respective vets, as are dogs with major injuries, and complex medication. We are happy to care for older dogs, however if they are feeble in any way, we are not facilitated to care for these babies either. Please note, that is for their own health and safety, Must Love Dogs prides ourselves in providing a safe, social environment, but are not a frail care, or nursing facility.

MLD Does not split families EVER - each Suite is home to one family at a time!
