If you like to pamper your pooch, soon you’ll have a new way to do it, as a luxury dog spa and hotel is being built in Roxbury.

The K9 Resorts Daycare & Luxury Hotel is planned for an opening probably in early 2022. According to TapInto.net, the 6,960-square-foot building and 3,000-square-foot outdoor play area were approved in 2020 by the Roxbury Planning Board.

The facility is a franchise; there are already six locations in New Jersey. So, what kind of accommodations will there be for your dog? If you book a “luxury suite” you can expect “the ultimate comfort and relaxation for even our most discerning guests. These are the most magnificent and spacious suites.” Some of the amenities include:

  • 8’ x 8’ of cage-free space
  • Glass privacy doors and a sound-resistant environment for ultimate comfort and relaxation
  • Premium Kuranda luxury dog bedding
  • Beautiful décor
  • In-suite television entertainment tuned to Animal Planet or DogTV
  • Outdoor window views
  • Top-quality meals consisting of our house diet, Blue Buffalo, a premium and natural formula designed for sensitive stomachs
  • Choice of all-day group play or individual playtime with staff

Even if you book one of the less-luxurious “executive rooms” or “traditional compartments” your dog still gets a bath and an outdoor play yard, complete with artificial turf.

There is also a “doggie daycare” service available to fill you dog’s day “with energy-burning fun and healthy relaxation among friends”

The new Roxbury location was supposed to open last year, but the pandemic scuttled those plans.
