Do you love your dog? Of course you do. Do you love your dog enough to send it on a $73,000 luxury vacation? That's what one company is offering.

VeryFirstTo.Com, a website that provides one-of-a-kind luxury experiences, now has a special package for a dog. The "Most Spectacular Luxury Dog Holiday" is so exclusive that it's only open to one and only one dog, ABC reports.

What to do with the family dog when vacation time comes is a common conundrum. Most dogs end up in a kennel. Some with a family friend. Just one will end up on a $73,000 luxury vacation of its own.

"There were so many strands that needed to come together to make this happen, it seemed to make sense to offer it to just one lucky pooch," said VeryFirstTo.com founder Marcel Knobil according to ABC.

The spectacular package, involving the Paw Seasons luxury dog hotel in Bristol, England, also includes things like surfing lessons, reiki sessions, grooming at Harrod's, therapy and more.

With such a hefty price tag, this package isn't just for any old dog.

"It'll definitely be an individual or couple who enjoy an extravagant lifestyle. While they go off to the Caribbean they want their pet to have an equally enjoyable, extravagant stay where they are," Knobil said. "It's for those who enjoy the finer things in life and have a sense of humor. They have a soft spot for their dog and want them to have the best time possible."

Some of the highlights of the package include a chauffeured ride for the dog by the Paw Season's hotel driver, a suite with a TV that screens movies like "Lassie" and "101 Dalmatians" while your pooch enjoys custom dog popcorn, a customized Bespoke dog house which replicate's the dog's own home, a personal chef, walks on the beach and countryside, a running session with 400m hurdles World Champion Dai Greene, a surfing lesson, a day with TV behavior expert Stan Rawlinson, the "Doglistener," a grooming sessions at Harrods which includes an aromatherapy bath, massage and a pedicure, a wardrobe featuring labels such as Louis Vuitton collar; Bottega Veneta lead and Mulberry rain coat and much more.

Not surprisingly, no one has showed interest in the offer as of yet, but Knobil doesn't think there will be an issue. Knobil said their luxury packages often taken time to get attention.

"We're pretty hopeful. We know it's extravagant, but it's a fabulous time for the dog and benefits two very good causes" -- $10,000 of the package will be split between two charities: Cancer Research U.K. and Battersea Dogs Home.
