Fairmont's canine ambassadors!

 

Known for thoughtful and welcoming service, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts now offers a distinctive service at select hotels with resident hotel dogs known as Canine Ambassadors.  Travellers missing their own furry friend or looking for a companion while taking a walk can bring along the resident Fairmont dog for extra security and the comfort of home. The Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind and other non-profits trained many of the pups and although they didn’t end up becoming guide dogs, they are committed to the new goal of making every guest smile.  All join their four-legged colleagues as official members of the hotels’ Guest Services Teams. 

The newest member of Fairmont’s Canine Ambassador team is Monte, a Golden Retriever at Fairmont Le Château Montebello in Quebec who was originally trained as a seeing-eye dog by the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Ottawa.  Monte stood out as having a ‘larger than life’ personality that made him the perfect fit for a new found life in hospitality.  For some quiet time, the happy pooch relaxes in his replica log château, specially designed for him by the hotel’s engineering team.

Edie, a white Boxer/Labrador Retriever at Fairmont Pittsburgh is named after Pittsburgh native Andy Warhol’s “superstar” Edie Sedgwick and is readily available to accompany guests on walks around the hotel.   Edie began her training in the assistant dog program at Circle Tail, Inc. in Pleasant Plain, Ohio.  After completing over a year of training, Edie’s friendly and outgoing personality proved to be better suited to the hospitality industry where she gets to meet new people every day. 

In Kenya, sisters Tusker and Grammy are a Labrador and Ridgeback mix and work at Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club.  They can be found around the Club taking walks together, jumping into ponds and chasing birds over 100 acres of picturesque landscape.

Golden Labrador Retriever Marcus, known to his friends as Mark, is the Director of Pet Relations at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies.  He loves to hike and play fetch with guests. 

As personalized relationships are at the heart of Fairmont service, guests can stay in touch with their furry friends, by sending some "ani-mail" either by snail mail to the hotel or via email. Guests who want to stay in touch with some of the dogs can even keep up with them on their own individual Facebook pages as well.

There are many more of these four-footed friends. Click the link to meet all of Fairmont’s Canine Ambassadors.....
