Canine critic wanted to review dog-friendly accommodation

Hotels.com are looking for a globe-trotting dog to em-BARK on a dream quest – reviewing canine hotels.

The top dog will be required to offer their four-legged insights on walkies, comfy bedding, pampering services – and top-quality bones.

Together with their owner, the chosen pooch will post their hotel reviews on a leading accommodation website. The new position of ‘canine critic’ at Hotels.com will give one lucky hound the chance to try out 10 of the world’s most dog-friendly hotels.

And there are just two requirements – they must be a bone-a-fide dog and have a taste for international travel. A recruitment video has been created by the leading hotel provider and features doggie influence, Dolly Pawton, reviewing The Curtain Hotel in London.

According to research, reviews of pet-friendly hotels have increased by 62% over the past two years. Following the surge, Hotels.com has launched a new category in its Loved by Guests awards – ‘Best for Pets’.

Liz Oakman, senior director and general manager EMEA from Hotels.com brand said: “We love our pets more than we love our other half at times, so it’s no surprise that we’ve seen a huge increase in travellers wanting to take their furry plus one on holiday with them.

“At Hotels.com, we want to make sure you find the paw-fect place to check into, so we’re excited to add a Best for Pets category to our Loved by Guests awards – but it doesn’t stop there. Our hunt for a Canine Critic is our way of ensuring our pet-friendly hotels really are up to ‘scratch’ with a four-legged expert’s paw of approval.”

Jet-setting hounds (and their humans) can apply for the role through Hotel.com’s Instagram channel by following them and posting a picture of themselves – tagging @hotelsdotcom and using #CanineCritic.

Applications for the new role close: 23:59 Sunday 25 August 2019.
