Hilton Manila Opens Its Very Own Outdoor Pet Park Named After Kabang, The Heroic Dog

Now that I and my dog Ollie are back in the metro, I have been checking all things pet-friendly in Manila that I can bring him! In fact, I already made an initial list of Manila's pet-friendly cafes and restaurants that we have started visiting already. I even have bookmarked pet-friendly hotels in Manila that I am so excited to spend at least a night with Ollie. This also includes pet-friendly bus companies in case we have a trip somewhere near outside the metro like our Tagaytay trip that happened last year.

Most of all, I think I have been unconsciously attracting all things about pets for the love of Ollie! A week ago, I saw an event announcement of Hilton Manila's opening of its outdoor dog park.  I had a really good time bringing Ollie back in Sorsogon when a big mall opened its pet park so I decided to send them a quick message. I am not expecting at all to receive a message back because after all, I and Ollie are small content creators with no big following. 

After a few days, I received a positive response from Hilton Manila including an official invite for me and Ollie for Kabang Dog Park opening. It is mind-boggling to me whenever I wish something to the Universe with no expectations and letting go of the outcome. It is always a yes!

Hilton Manila's Kabang Dog Park 

Kabang is a heroic Aspin dog that saved two lives in Zamboanga city in 2011 during a motorcycle accident. Half of her nose was damaged but she gained worldwide attention for her heroic deed. This is the reason why Hilton Manila named its pet park after her. There are three reasons why I love Kabang Dog Park. First, it is outdoor. Second, it is made entirely of sustainable products. Third, it has water stations that pets can drink from for free.

The grand opening of Kabang Dog Park located at the fifth floor of Hilton Manila was lead by John Lucas, general manager of Hilton Manila. Kabang's last owner, Dr. Anto Mari Lim and his team were also present. A commemorative plaque of Kabang and her photo was also unveiled.

By adding a pet park, Hilton Manila has attained a thousand if not a million plus points to anyone looking for a pet-friendly luxury hotel in Manila. In reality, most hotels that accept pets only allow pets in certain areas. Usually, these pets are only allowed in the rooms. In Hilton Manila, there's one more place for our furbabies to enjoy the word "staycation" outside the hotel room.

To make this day more memorable, Hilton Manila also organized a pet expo. The highlight is meeting Coach Jayr. He offers dog obedience trainings for 6 weeks in Cavite. I was really lucky that day because he gave me a few tips on how to train Ollie.  Also, I did not expect the generous dog freebies that Ollie ended up liking specially that lactose-free milk he can't stop drinking! I think I will buy one more anytime soon.
