MENOMONEE FALLS — When you take a vacation your pet can too. A luxury pet resort is set to open on Feb. 1 in Menomonee Falls.
"So you might have a boat that does what you need it to do and gets you where you want to go and keeps you out of the water but you can also have a luxury yacht,” Dr. Densie Follett of the new Brook-Falls Luxury Pet Resort, said.
This new luxury yacht of pet boarding facilities is an extension to the current Brook-Falls Veterinary Hospital.

What makes it luxury, though?
Depending on the package you buy, your pet could have a sizeable suite with a toddler-sized bed to sleep on. They also have their own cameras owners can watch to see how their pet is doing. Plus, there is a TV in each suite for the dog to watch.
"It's something that's comforting and familiar to the dog as is television. Having something on in the background, they know it from home, so we want to make it as much like home as we can," Dr. Follett said.
Luxury accommodations mean luxury prices. A stay in the 8x8 doggy deluxe suite is $73/night. They have canine facilities from 3x6 to 7x8 ranging between $40 and $57/night. For our feline friends, prices range from $27 to $37. All these prices vary when you factor in additional amenities and services.
Plus, there is a senior center with brand new couches the dogs can rest on. The facility also takes in exotic animals.
While you are away, staff will play with your dog in a large "enrichment area."
"Nose work or other type puzzle games. Some balancing. Some agility those types of things. It's more for the whole body and mind as well," Dr. Follett said.
Think of it as a private school for dogs.
Dr. Follett said she knows all this is a little extra.
"You don’t really need it."
However, if you can give your pet a nicer stay while you're on vacation yourself, why not?
"People want to know as they go away their pets are having the same good time as they might be having," she said.
Because if you are staying a nice hotel, you might as well put your pet up in the pFURster too.
