Hello everyone —
Happy holiday season! It is hard to believe that the winter holidays are already upon us, but here we are dressing our dogs in ugly sweaters and snowflake bandanas.
As we head into the new year, we need to share with you some important news about our pricing at The Urban Hound. To cut right to the chase: The Urban Hound will be raising our prices across the board in 2020.
Below, you can find a comprehensive list of our pricing changes, but first we’d like to take a moment and explain why this decision is necessary.
Beginning in 2020, the rent for our building is doubling. When The Urban Hound opened, we were in a part of the South End that hadn’t yet been developed to the extent that many other neighborhoods had. A lot has changed in ten years, and our neighborhood is now home to many luxury condo buildings, hot new restaurants, and exciting local businesses.
We are so proud to be a part of this booming, bustling neighborhood, and we would not trade it for the world. Which is why we chose to renew our lease despite the tremendous increase in our rent. But, in order to afford this increase, to continue to provide you with the standard of care you are used to for your dogs, and to be able to pay our staff a livable wage in Boston, we must raise our prices in the new year.
We did not make this decision lightly and we wanted to make sure that we could give you all as much notice as possible before making these changes. Our new pricing will be effective starting Monday, January 6, 2020.
Providing you and your dogs with excellent care is our number one priority, and we know that raising our prices in 2020 will allow us to continue to do so for many years to come. We so appreciate your support since the very beginning, and appreciate your understanding as we make this change. Below you will find the prices for all of our services, effective January 6th.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. We wish you and your families a happy and healthy holiday season, and look forward to seeing your dogs’ best holiday looks over the next few weeks.
