Hotels Turn Pet Friendly Using How-To Guide by
Knoxville, TN--April 27-- ( announces the continued success of the book, 'Making Your Property Pet friendly: A How-To Guide.' 

Many hoteliers have remained on the sidelines with fears of damages, barks, bites, and allergies. The book addresses all of these concerns and provides an easy-to-understand blueprint for establishing a profitable pet friendly program at virtually any type of lodging establishment.

“With no set industry standard, hoteliers who wanted to start or improve their pet friendly programs were left with no reliable guidelines,” states spokesperson, Brian Bailey. “There is an enormous difference between just accepting pets and actually being pet friendly – and that difference can be seen in the bottom line.”

With upwards of 36 million households traveling with their pets, taking at least 2 vacations per year, and spending an average of $1,000 or more per trip, this translates into a huge sum of money spent in an exceptionally niche market.

“I was extremely apprehensive about allowing pets in my upscale rental cabin, but I needed to do something to increase revenue during the off-season,” states rental property owner, Judi Schenck. “The How-To Guide addressed all of my concerns, clearly explained the pros and cons, provided necessary paperwork, and helped me put together a profitable pet friendly program.” 

Both print and downloadable versions of the book, “Making Your Property Pet friendly: A How-To Guide” are available for purchase at or by calling 865-671-8436.

The Web site features color photos, complete descriptions, amenities, and property rates, giving you easy access to the finest pet friendly lodging in the country. There is also detailed area information, including online specials and last-minute discounts. The mission of is to create the ultimate "home away from home" for pets and their owners.
