A new festive event at Boston’s famous pet-friendly hotel! Fairmont Copley Plaza’s Canine Ambassador, Cori Copley, invites pups to pose with Santa Claus and receive digital photos in return to post on Instagram, feature in holiday cards & have as a treasured keepsake.

Before the VIPs (Very Important Pups) are photographed, each will receive a quick “Brush N’ Fluff” service from ONYVA, Newbury Street’s luxury dog spa, to look their furry best for the camera. A professional photographer will then capture your dog and Santa in front of an enchanting winter backdrop. A minimum of five hi-res digital images will be shared by Thursday, December 1 so you have plenty of time to use the photos.

Hot chocolate will be served for pawrents, and every dog will take home a packet of Boston Barkery biscuits and a 20% off discount card to redeem at one of their boutiques for holiday shopping.

‘Tis the season of giving. Helping the Boston community—including our four-legged friends—is at the heart of what Fairmont Copley Plaza does. Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation of needed shelter items for Cori to drop off at the Animal Rescue League of Boston. Please only donate items from their wish list.

Just 10 tickets are available per hour block. Book fast to reserve your dog’s spot!
