HosPETality | Examples of pet-friendly gestures

  • HosPETality - @thedoodlecalledjimmy loves to travelHosPETality - @thedoodlecalledjimmy loves to travel
  • A thermal dedicated dog pool at Lifestyle & Thermal retreat FonteverdeA thermal dedicated dog pool at Lifestyle & Thermal retreat Fonteverde

A couple of weeks ago we spotted the great term HosPETality and because we travel with our family & office dog, Labradoodle Jimmy, we spot a lot of examples of pet-friendly gestures. In hotels you have to pay a small fee for the dog but mostly you get a bowl, doggy pillows and if the dog is lucky, a treat! It already starts with the reservation, we booked a stay at a hotel in Spain and because we gave notice of our dog and asked them to book a table for dinner, they emailed us that they booked us a table at the terrace so Jimmy could accompany us for dinner. Just thoughtfull! We made a list of very great small gestures hotels and restaurants can implement.

To elevate the unique talents of these storytellers across the country, SweeTARTS is reimagining the typically exclusive award show concept by hosting the first branded Film Fest on TikTok.

Great idea to create a TikTok contest for your own club, restaurant chain or bar if you want to  engage young people with your brand. Done right it will push your amount of followers on TikTok and who knows it might interest young people that didn’t visit your place before. In the past we spotted similar ideas for Instagram.
