Exclusive Dog Clubs

January 5, 2013 in Daily Bulletin

The next big thing for dogs? Exclusive clubs, writes Bob Morris:

  • To get into high end dog clubs, the dog needs to go through a rigorous interview process to see if the dog would be a good ‘fit’ for the club.
  • These clubs are particularly worried about canines that exhibit “toy aggression” or those that don’t share treats. All of this can cause anxiety in the clubs’ other four-legged members, and the owners of the club want it to be a peaceful experience for all patrons.
  • Dogs that are accepted have their information stored in an online database which handlers use to know what to expect when dealing with the pet.
  • A variety of services are available at these clubs including, yoga and massages for the dog.
