"Simply offering pet friendly stays can convince a traveler to book a room at a property, but many hotels are going the extra mile to make sure their furriest travelers are comfortable," Brianna Ahearn wrote for Social Tables." Pet-friendly amenities offered at hotels include food dishes, water bowls, outdoor play areas, and dog runs."

1. Pet Psychic
Have you ever wondered what your dog is thinking when it looks at you like you're totally bananas? If you're hanging out in Portland, Ore., head to the Kimpton Hotel Monaco for a 10-minute session with the hotel's resident Reiki master and psychic/medium Deborah Romero. I've actually consulted a pet psychic before, and it's pretty fascinating to learn what's happening behind those barks.
2. Pet Massages
Treating yourself to an in-room massage? You can get one for Fido too. "Provenance Hotels have long been lauded for pampered pet resources that range from practical — groomers, dog walkers and veterinarians — to over-the-top indulgent — pet acupuncture, psychics, Reiki, and more," a press release about the hotel chain's pet amenities noted. You can find a Provenance hotel in a number of cities around the country.
3. Cat & Dog Dining
Hey, it's Fido and Fluffy's vacation too, and they deserve a special meal for being good all year long.

Because, after a long day of travel, there's nothing better than getting delicious food delivered right to your door and eating it in bed.
4. Dog Parks
Having a place for Fido to run and play, especially if you're staying in an urban area, is key to a fun vacay with your furry BFF. Many pet-friendly hotels offer designated dog parks so Fido can make new friends and get all the exercise he needs to work up an appetite for that room service.
5. Surf Lessons
If the pet psychic reveals that riding the waves is on Fido's bucket list, head to the Loews Coronado Bay Resort near San Diego, Calif. Book a surf lesson for your dog, get some Instagram-worthy snaps of Fido riding the waves, and then let him get him salmon and beef reward for catching a swell like a boss.
6. Doga Classes
