Why Pet-Friendly Hotels are Taking Over Travel and Hospitality Trends

As we ourselves have taken note, the hotel industry is experiencing a boom in pet-friendly guest experiences.  It’s a feature that we, here at Kinn Guesthouse, and countless others are offering travelers and their four-legged companions.  And, we’re finding that this is one feature that’s winning over new customers coming from both near and far.
