Style File: Dogs
If your pooch is too cool to catch frisbees and too cute to wonder around the dog park -- there's another option. In tonight's Style File, we found a couple places that will make your pet feel like a lucky dog.
WSVN--For some dogs, only the best will do.
Britney and Paris' pooches wouldn't settle for anything less.
And now your furry friend can feel like a four-legged star too.
Felice Naide: "I drive up, I turn into the pet resort and he's at my lap bounding up the windows."
At the Coral Springs pet resort dogs get the VIP treatment.
Dr. Penny Kupferberg: "Dogs come in and get pampered just like people go away on vacation and enjoy themselves."
Your posh pup can socialize at the pool.
Get a holistic doggy treatment like acupuncture.
Or even get a manicure for their walk on the wild side.
Dr. Penny Kupferberg: "We are the one place where they can come with their pet to get everything done that they need to get done."
Some owners bring their dog in for just the day but others board their pets while they're away. The extended stay pets get their own star-studded rooms -- like the Brad pit-bull suite here.
Dr. Penny Kupferberg: "They are not only safe and secure, they are having a blast so they go home and they are happy."
If your canine companion is in the mood for some socializing why not strut them over to the Hotel Victor's doggy happy hour.
Victoria Prado: "It's a nice little concept that we have now, that this ability to just allow our dog to be as we are."
Every sunday afternoon this uber-chic South Beach hot spot goes to the dogs. The Victor opens its terraces and welcomes pets and their owners.
Victoria Prado: "Well on Sunday, you've gone to the beach and at 5 o'clock you know you may head out for a little snack or a drink anyway, and you can do this in another way by enjoying the company of your pet."
Dogs of all sizes mingle with their new friends while their parents sip delicious cocktails like the *Dalmation* or the *Pomeranian.*
Victoria Prado: "Just basically sit back and relax and know that their dog is taken care of and that they can socialize."
The scene a trendy treat for the people and the pets.
Q Fortune: "The more the dogs, the merrier, she's definitely a social queen that's for sure."
Belkys Nerey: "At the Coral Springs pet resort the boarding prices start at $40 and their grooming prices depend on the size of the dog. The facility is also hurricane safe."
