In a Jan. 22, 2016 New York Times article, Jane Margolies explained the evolution of animal-oriented features from sporadic early appearances in 2000 to prolific installations in 2016, noting, “When “pet spas” were introduced in high-end residential buildings a decade or so ago, they might have seemed like another flash-in-the-pan perk. But they’ve not only hung on like a dog with a bone, they’ve also evolved.” Spas, treadmills, bone-shaped pools, visiting vets, and groomers used by haute couture designers rule the day. Marcus Hiles notes a Los Angeles Times article from Aug. 8, 2014 highlights the ultimate trend, with pet parents giving their charges a special space of their own, often even equipped with an en suite bath. One proud pet suite aficionado reasoned, “She’s a part of the family. Everybody else has a room — so does she.” The designation of a complete suite to the toys, leashes, grooming equipment, and other accessories needed for healthy, happy, pets keeps the rest of the home clean and organized.
