It is a pet-friendly hotel policy to never leave your dog unattended. But if you are staying in the hotel for a business trip and you need to go out of your room to meet with some people, you won’t have another choice but to leave your dog alone in the hotel room. Though it is policy to never leave your pooch alone, most pet parents do leave their dogs inside the hotel room, but kind of work as a mutual and unspoken understanding of a “don’t ask, don’t tell” circumstance. When you need to do this, make sure that you leave the “Do Not Disturb” sign hanging on the outside doorknob. This is to protect your dog from meeting a stranger cleaning person, and the sign will also ensure that the hotel staff will not have a scary episode with your dog.
