The Wagington is a new, high-end dog hotel (kennel?) in Singapore catering to the wealthiest residents of the area.
All dogs must be temperament tested before being allowed to stay in one of the 27 suites of the hotel. Amenities include memory foam mattresses, a bone-shaped swimming pool with supervised swimming, a gym including a treadmill (also supervised), and spa services ranging from ‘pawdicures’ to mud wraps.
Over the top? Probably – for many of us. But the opening of this facility, reportedly costing the owner $700,000, shows that the pet market continues its expansion with owners who can afford luxuries for their animals.
