Press release: Mars Petcare

To celebrate International Dog Day, Mars Petcare and Hilton have joined forces, so dogs staying at Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton by Hilton, Tru by Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton and Embassy Suites by Hilton in the U.S. and in select Toronto area hotels will receive free CESAR Canine Cuisine on Saturday, August 26 (while supplies last).

International Dog Day or any day, shows dog owners are eager to travel with their furry friends. In fact, recent research1 by Hilton found that more than half of dog owners (56 percent) plan to travel with their pets in the next three to nine months, and that 79 percent of pet parents are influenced by their pets when planning their travel destinations. That’s why Hilton, with thousands of pet-friendly hotels, partnered with Mars Petcare to make travel with pets more welcoming and worry free.

“Travelers are eager to bring their pets on their vacations to create lasting memories with the whole family, and at Hilton, we pride ourselves on anticipating the needs of our pet-friendly travelers and providing them with reliable service and spacious accommodations to make their stay feel more like home,” said Talene Staab, brand leader Home2 Suites by Hilton. “Through our collaboration with Mars Petcare, we’re excited to celebrate International Dog Day and offer a complimentary meal to all dogs staying at our participating pet-friendly hotels.”

Mars Petcare and Hilton are dedicated to providing an exceptional stay for pets and their parents, ensuring their comfort and happiness throughout the entire journey, from booking to check out. And by offering CESAR Canine Cuisine on International Dog Day – a holiday created by pet lifestyle expert Colleen Paige to celebrate all dogs – dog lovers and their pups can enjoy their travel experience together even more. CESAR Canine Cuisine is designed with shared moments in mind, offering a wide range of gourmet recipes in a variety of textures, intended to appeal to even the pickiest eaters. The CESAR brand, proudly part of the Mars family of brands, has always believed that the best life is shared between pets and their pet parents; providing pets with the meals and complements they love shows them the love they deserve – which can help make the most of a spontaneous travel adventure or celebration of International Dog Day.

“Mars Petcare and Hilton know that pet parents enjoy travel most when they’re with their best friends, which is why we’re dedicated to leading the way in pet-friendly travel across the U.S. and Canada,” said Jean-Paul Jansen, senior vice president of marketing for Mars Petcare North America. “We’re thrilled to celebrate International Dog Day by providing pet guests with a special meal courtesy of our CESAR brand to create a moment of joy for dogs and pet parents while they travel together.”

Pet parents have access to unique amenities through the Mars Petcare and Hilton partnership that make traveling together seamless and give guests extra peace of mind. The Mars PET On-Demand service offers guests access to expert advice from the Mars Pet Expert Team (PET) during their stay, including guidance from behaviorists, nutritionists, vet techs, and other pet-friendly resources that meet Hilton pet guests’ needs.

Additionally, Hilton Team Members at pet-friendly properties across the portfolio regularly provide guests with information on local pet-friendly offerings, including local dog parks, nearby 24-hour vets, pet stores and any pet-friendly restaurants in the area. Many hotels offer pet treats at the front desk, pet bowls for use during a stay and waste bags.
