Dog joins staff of hotel reception
A dog has become the latest member of staff at a hotel and has been described as "a wonderful furry asset to the team".
Waggers, a three-month-old miniature labradoodle, has had training to ensure he adapts to his role and way of life as part of the reception team.
The Staybridge Suites in Vauxhall, south London, said it is the first hotel to appoint a dog as a staff member.
While Waggers will not be able to take guests' bags on arrival, the hotel said he is guaranteed to offer a heart-warming gaze.
Hotel manager Giovanni Valentini said: "Labradoodles are renowned to be sociable, obedient dogs who enjoy company and have a loving temperament.
"Waggers has integrated well and is quickly adapting to hotel life. He is most definitely a wonderful furry asset to the team."
