Lansdowne Resort Unveils New Dog Friendly Program

Introduces Howl for the Holidays Dogs Stay Free Package

Lansdowne Resort, the AAA Four Diamond property located in Leesburg, has unveiled a new dog friendly program, officials announced today. The dog friendly resort in Virginia also introduced their “Howl for the Holidays” seasonal offer that will allow dogs to stay free with a guest and have the $100 non-refundable fee waived. The special seasonal dog friendly offer is available from November 24 through December 30, 2013. For guests staying with canines over Thanksgiving, the resort is preparing a special dog friendly dinner with turkey, oatmeal, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce.

“We have seen an increase in the number of guests inquiring about whether we were dog friendly, so this decision was a direct result.” said Michael Snapkoski, director of sales and marketing at Lansdowne Resort. “Aside from our resort, there are dog friendly parks in the area, so allowing dogs seemed like a great way to fulfill a need for guests and families that love to travel with their four-legged friends.”

Upon arrival at the resort, the dog will be provided with a special bone amenity and permission to use an official Lansdowne Resort dog bowl. The property will allow dogs in certain rooms on the second floor of the hotel. The weight size restriction for one dog is 75 pounds, or two will be permitted with the limit of 50 pounds per dog. Guests are asked to announce plans to travel with a dog prior to arrival, and be required to fill out and sign the dog friendly policy agreement during the check-in process. Lansdowne Resort is composed of 500 acres of land which includes Bark Park, a dog friendly rest area, and the Potomac Heritage Trail, a walking path where dog and owner can explore along the banks of the historic Potomac River.
