A Romantic Brazilian Getaway, Doggy Style

main image
Brazilians love their dogs, so much so that a brother-sister duo have invested $1 million into "Animalle Mundo Pet," a hotel specifically for dogs who need a romantic place to get together while their owners are at work. The hotel launches its grand opening this week. Of the 60 staff employed by the hotel, veterinarians and biologists are on hand to ensure the well being of pets.

The $50/day rooms are furnished with a heart-shaped mirror on the ceiling, red floor cushions, and dimmed lighting. The idea is based on the popular trend of human love hotels where rooms can be rented hourly for trysts, no questions asked.These number in the thousands in Brazil, and the founders have hopes that similar dog equivalents will become available in other Brazilian cities.

"Our market studies showed that people work all day long and they do not know where to drop their pets for mating," states co-founder 26-year-old Fabiano Lourdes. He believes that dogs, as important family members, deserve 5-star treatment including delicacies such as $1,000 Swarovski crystal dog collars, birthday parties, and a dog fitness center.

Brazil boasts having the world's second largest dog population (32 million) after the U.S.(78.2 million), but may find themselves with a puppy boom soon.
