If you’ve got someone in your life who is absolutely obsessed with their dog (even if that person is yourself), consider their Christmas present sorted.
Thanks to Kimpton Blythswood Square in Glasgow, pampered pets can join their owners for a cross-species spa day, as the hotel offers guests and their furry family members an ‘Ultimutt Treat’.
The unique canine spa package, which will run for a limited time at the Scottish city’s only five-star hotel, allows dogs to wind down while their owners get the chance to wind down with some much-needed R&R.
Humans can choose to enjoy a 30-minute express facial or a 30-minute express massage, targeting key areas of stress or tension – perfect after a day spent chasing an energetic hound.
Then it’s the turn of man’s best friend to be pampered, as their owner is taught how to give the perfect doggy massage by the spa therapist.
Using Edinburgh-based Bark and Hare’s doggy paw balm – a super soothing infusion of natural beeswax, shea butter, sweet almond oil and apricot kernel – owners are shown how to rub the balm into tender paws and onto their dog’s nose, keeping them naturally moisturised and nourished to protect from everyday wear and tear.
After the treatment, guests will even be given a tub of the balm and a dog shampoo bar to take home with them, meaning the indulgence lasts long after pup jumps in its first post-spa puddle.
General Manager at Kimpton Blythswood Square Mafalda Albuquerque said: ‘We pride ourselves on being Glasgow’s most dog-friendly hotel so when we were thinking about the most dog-friendly Christmas gift for our furry friends this festive season, we knew we had to come up with something special.
‘I’m very proud to launch The Ultimutt Treat – which I think makes us the number one luxury destination for both dogs and their owners to unwind this winter.’
Available to both hotel residents and non-residents between January 3 and 31, bookings for the Ultimutt Treat are now live on the Kimpton Blythswood Square website until December 31.
