Bring your dog to the first annual Wine and Bitch weekend at The Resort at Paws Up

With the economy in the crapper, hotels are really struggling for your business. Some of them are getting creative with their special offers, like the Wine and Bitch weekend at The Resort at Paws Up in Montana.

For the weekend of November 14-16, you and your dog are invited to this special getaway. Your stay will include three gourmet meals each day, wine tastings from Mutt Lynch Winery, and luxury accommodations. For the dogs, there’s a canine fashion show, dog parade, and lots of handmade treats. You can also attend doggie seminars on training and wellness.

$1,392 pays for three days and two nights for two humans and one pup at Paws Up. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, the resort offers spa treatments, horseback rides, wilderness adventures, and some of America’s best fly fishing.

It’s gimmicky, sure, but it actually sounds like a nice vacation. So often traveling means putting pets up in kennels and suffering through a guilt trip when you return home. It’s nice to have the opportunity to pamper yourself without leaving your best friends behind.
