Every dog will have a great day thanks to the new Doggies Day Out program at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Guests of the resort who miss their furry friends while on vacation will not only do good to walk a shelter dog from the local Humane Society of the Cayman Islands, but also get the chance to explore the property by walking the finely curated doggie paths around the Blue Tip Golf Course and the North Sound Club.
The program and walk, created by Marcus Caudill, housekeeping manager for the property, provides plenty of resting spots and shade along the way. Caudill is also the owner of "Charlie" an alumni of the local Humane Society chapter, and advises that guests sign up early to reserve a dog walking spot.
We knew our guests would enjoy taking the dogs out, but had no idea how successful the program would be, he says. On busy days weve even had waiting lists for the walking slots. One guest enjoyed her outing so much, she handed me a check for $1,000 for the Humane Society afterwards. To find out more about the program, contact The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman.
