Sin City has gone to the dogs – but in a good  way, of course. If you can't bear the thought of leaving your four-footed pet at home, luxurious, non-casino Vdara Hotel & Spa has Vdog. It’s the canine-friendly program that ensures that man's best pal experiences the same luxury while you live it up in Las Vegas.

For an extra $50 per night and $75 cleaning fee, you may bring up to two dogs with a combined weight of 70 lbs (sorry, Marmaduke!) for a stay in a specially-selected deluxe suite that makes sure you’re room is separated from those who might not be so keen on sharing a wall or hallway with late night barking. Crates are available in-room if you plan on leaving your pup alone. Pet sitting services are also available for an extra fee through the concierge, if your pampered pet prefers to have company while you’re on the town.

At check-in, your pooch gets its own amenity basket which includes eco-friendly waste bags, an all-natural baked dog treat from a local dog bakery and info on the 24-hour nearby dog park and in-room meals.

That menu features healthy options for canines created by Vdara, including a daily Fetch of the Day special such as filet with sweet potatoes, green beans and yellow squash.

For exercise and those dog walk necessities, stroll the path on the adjacent, green dog park at the entrance to the all-suite property.

The next time you're planning your trip to Las Vegas, and your furry best friend looks up at you with those sweet, soulful eyes that say "Take me along." In Vegas, you can.

Vdara, 2600 W. Harmon Av., Las Vegas NV. Nightly room rates start at about $140. www.vdara
