Sometimes the day comes that we have to jet set somewhere and must leave our precious pet behind. Yet it doesn’t have to be a traumatic event for your fine kitty or pooch. Select a gorgeous pet hotel or resort and you can rest assured that your pet will be relaxing in the lap of luxury. Here are some of the best in Sydney to consider:
