One of the most common dilemmas of furparents like me is the idea of leaving our pets when traveling. To be honest, I am really not comfortable about leaving Crumpy thus, it's either I bring him along if we get to find a place where pets are allowed or just simply cancel the trip.
So far, we were lucky to find pet-friendly accommodation in Cebu, Kalibo, and Tagaytay. Thus, I was very excited and happy to learn about Ascott Limited's Somerset Olympia Makati.
Ms. Susan Salcedo, The Ascott Limited Philippines’ City Manager said, “Because there are only a few pet-friendly properties in the hospitality industry in our country, Somerset Olympia Makati offers a home for your pets”
Aside from offering a home to our dear furbabies, The Ascott Limited's Somerset Olympia Makati also celebrated its first Puppy Hour last April 30, 2019.
In line with the international celebration of the pet month, Somerset Olympia Makati celebrated the value of pet ownership that brought together dog owners, bloggers and a non-profit organization in raising awareness for a good cause.
The participants had a chance to tour around the facilities of the serviced-residence together with their dogs as Somerset Olympia Makati is the first pet-friendly property of The Ascott Limited in the Philippines.
The said event also discussed the current state of the lives of military working dogs (MWD) and contract working dogs (CWD) in the Philippines through the invited guest speakers and founders of Hound Haven Philippines, Maxin Arcebal, CEO and Chelsea Pecson, COO.
The success of Puppy Hour was made possible by its partners namely Fur Magic, Sleeky, St. Roche, Nutram, Bow House, Pet Express, Vitality, and Whole Pet Kitchen.
The Ascott Limited's Somerset Olympia Makati is definitely not just your mere serviced-residence. It is perfect for those travelers or families who would not want to leave their pets in the corners of their homes like me.
So, I guess we're off to Metro Manila soon and now, I can bring Crumpy with me when I attend the Global Authors Summit in November.
Who's up for a doggie play date in Makati?
