Full Explanation by Pets Can Stay:
This property has been independently certified by Pets Can Stay as meeting or exceeding all criteria required for the Standard Certification designation for pet friendly hotels. As a traveler to Winnipeg, you are staying at an establishment which has distinguished itself as a member of a unique group of accommodation providers who cater to the travel experience of the pet-toting guest.
The Pets Can Stay Standard designation signifies that this establishment has met the following mandatory certification criteria:
Equal Service - The establishment accepts pets and welcomes pet-toting travelers with the same level of service and hospitality as would be offered to guests without pets.
No Arbitrary Pet Fees - Any additional fees charged to guests traveling with pets reflect the extra cleaning costs or maintenance expenses the lodging incurs for accepting pets and do not represent a financial penalty to the pet owner for simply bringing an animal to the premises.
Acceptable Accommodation and Non-Smoking Options - Not withstanding federal, state/provincial and local health regulations and other related codes, guests and/or their pets are not designated to any substandard accommodation or facility in the establishment (e.g. requiring the pet to stay in a garage, storage room, outdoors, in the owner's vehicle, etc.). The establishment has smoking and non-smoking pet-designated units available (unless it is a fully non-smoking establishment). All pet-designated rooms are kept in good, clean condition and are devoid of unpleasant odors (e.g. heavy smoke).
Fair Kenneling Policies - The establishment does not enforce kenneling of pets at all times during the stay (i.e. even when in the guest room with their owners in attendance). Pets are allowed outside of their kennel once in room while in the presence of their owners.
Safe Environment - Pet-designated common areas and pet-designated rooms within the establishment are free of objects or substances that present a danger to pets (e.g. easily accessible chocolate, nuts, cleaners, etc.).
Pet Policies Available Upon Request - The establishment can provide clearly written documentation, upon request, outlining all of its pet-related policies that are in effect (e.g. leash policy, pet in room policy, etc.).
Food/Water Bowls - The establishment can, upon request, provide a drinking/food receptacle (e.g., dish, bowl, bucket, etc.) to pet guests.
Licensed Accommodation Provider - The establishment is licensed and accredited, in the region in which it operates, to provide travel accommodations.
