Important Pricing Updates for the New Year

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.

Thank you,

Rebecca & the Urban Hound Team

It’s Puppy Season!!!

Ah, smell that in the air? It’s the distinct, crisp smell of a brand new season. Spring? No. PUPPY SEASON!

With the promise of beautiful weather and a summer full of trips to the dog beach, getaways on the pup-friendly Vineyard, and busy social hours at the park, this season of new beginnings has become a season of new puppies for a lot of Boston.

Welcoming a new puppy into the home is a fun and rewarding experience for the entire family, and can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. But with a new puppy comes a wealth of new responsibilities. Potty training, obedience training, grooming…It’s all up to you! Luckily, here at the Urban Hound, we realize this can be overwhelming.

We’re here to help!

No matter what you want to tackle first, the Urban Hound is ready to be your first stop this puppy season. From training to grooming to simply wearing your puppy out, we’ve got you covered.

Right now, our spa is offering the Boston Strong Pupgrade, which will get your dog ready for Marathon Day with a fresh new cut and a sharp celebratory bandana.

And as always, our Urban Hound University is offering Puppy K, as well as a Puppy Socialization class on Saturdays. Check out our Events page for the latest.
