Upon checking in, let your pet sift through the welcome pack including pet toys, treats, pickup bags, a neighborhood guide and hemp leashes and collars. For those new to the area, the neighborhood guide will be a helpful directory to local dog-centric spaces. Use the guide to check out nearby parks, trails, beaches and dog-friendly eateries in the area and keep it in your back pocket in case you need to locate a vet or groomer.


The Time Hotel, Nyack, NY

Bring the family and pets along for a trip to the Hudson River Valley in Nyack, N.Y. Pets are welcome with a $50 fee per night, per pet and receive special treatment — just as your two-legged family members.


Let your four-legged guests tear into their welcome bags, including their own water bottle, toys, dog tag, treats and array of specialty gifts. Set down your bags in your room and get comfortable while your dog settles down in the pet teepee. Your pet will even receive their own turndown service before bed, complete with a fresh bottle of water and a treat.
