Fido Takes a Spa Day

Trump Hotel is offering an in-room massage for dogs. (In case any poodles or St. Bernards were wondering, the massage also comes with a dog bed, treats, and bottled water.) Is catering to pets a rising trend on the Strip? Does it rake in profits, or is it just an extra perk for (human) patrons? Does pampering the pooch pay off for hotel/casinos? And how do you get Fido to lie still for a Shiatsu massage?
