Top Dog Resort – Uthandi

This place doubles as a day care centre and pet boarding for your pet. Your dog is encouraged to swim when under their care with supervision. You can also take your dog out for an hourly based swimming session in the hot summers when you feel they need some time out to themselves because not only us humans our pets need some recreational self time too. Swimming provides numerous benefits for dogs but it is important to remember that not all dogs love the water, some are not comfortable and you must not force them. Hence introduce them to water slowly and observe their reaction. There are plenty of other activities you can still do with your pet if they are not comfortable with this activity in particular.

The Beach

Chennai plays host to numerous beaches such as the Marina beach, Elliot’s beach etc. Entry is free and you and your pet can enjoy the sand dunes, ocean waves while building castles and enjoying a beach side picnic. Your pet can also accompany you while you play games or go on the merry go round and enjoy beach style food. However one must be wary of your dog catching ticks. Take sufficient water, dog sunscreen, food and some toys to play fetch. 

 

The places listed above are great for bonding time with your pet but this pet friendly facility is subject to change based on weather conditions or other miscellaneous reasons. We would suggest you call the hangout to confirm the availability so that your pet and you do not return home disappointed on a sad note. Take out the leash and enjoy café hopping.
