(NBCNC) — Hotels are going to the dogs.
Some spots offer guests loaner dogs, usually from local shelters, for people who may want to hike or explore the outdoors with a canine companion.
They include Utah’s Red Mountain Resort and the Little Nell and the Mountain House Lodge in Aspen, Colo.
Others even have house dogs you can borrow; eight North American Fairmont hotels offer that feature.
Kimpton hotels, meanwhile, have loaner goldfish — which prove popular with younger guests.
That program’s called “Guppy Love.”
