Run with the Big Dogs (and the Small Dogs). This April, BSAH added a cutting-edge outdoor dog run to our backyard. Dogs whose loving owners book them for a stay at BSHA’s Luxury Pet Hotel receive many VIP guest amenities, including the opportunity to exercise in the run — rain or shine. The 1,100-square foot dog run, open to dogs of all sizes, is completely protected from the weather by overhead cover.
It’s All About the Sanitation (and the French Drains).
Bay Street’s dog run represents the latest developments in sanitation. The only thing not cutting edge about our dog run is our grass — there is none. A top layer of protection is provided by a proprietary maintenance-free 100% permeable artificial turf and backing that allow all liquids and solids to be washed away and completely drained at 250 inches per hour without back-up. Below ground level, a system of French drains — perforated pipes — redirects water washed from the surface away from the area of the dog run.
And Furthermore. Behind BSAH’s outdoor dog run there is a separate staff residence, where a member of our staff is on call 24/7. That makes us the only hotel in the world where the staff gets to live with the dogs.
