By Jose Lambiet, GossipExtra.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 17, 2015 – WEST PALM BEACH — Posh Pet Hotel owner Lincoln Baker is betting that area residents will spend $120 a day to board their dogs.
And for that, he plunked down what could be upward of $1 million to transform an old South Dixie Highway CVS pharmacy into the ultimate hotel for dogs and cats, the Posh Pet Hotel.
“When someone comes to spend big money at The Breakers or the Four Seasons, they usually are not able to keep their dog with them,” says Baker, a father of two who quit his insurance executive job in Los Angeles and moved to Palm Beach to open the high-class pet boarding business. “That’s where we come in. What’s $120 if the dog’s masters are spending ten times as much per day for their room?”
Actually, any lucky dog that gets the $120-presidential suite, one of nearly 103 private spaces for dogs and cats in the building, gets a room that could rival rooms at most of the area’s hotels.READ MORE
