We’ve got all kinds of things to be thankful for here at the Urban Hound. First of all, we get to spend our days with dogs. What’s better than that? Whether it’s another day of craziness in the news, your immune system finally succumbing to flu season, or just a week of waking up on the wrong side of the bed, not much can’t be cured by slobbery dog kisses.
Other things we’re thankful for include:
- A staff who work hard everyday to create a happy, safe environment for our pups
- Blackbird Donuts being right up the street
- Clients who start our days with smiles
- The essential oils diffuser that keeps our lobby smelling fresh
- Totally 80s radio on Pandora
- …and so much more!!!
We’ll be sharing everything else we’re thankful for on Instagram throughout the month of November using the hashtag #ThankDog. We’d love for you to join us! Using Instagram, tag us and use the hashtag #ThankDog to share the dog-related things that make your world go ’round, and we’ll share yours with our followers. We’re looking forward to seeing what you share!
Back when my dogs were younger, my partner and I used to spend a lot of time hiking with them in the White Mountains.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or just without the internet) for the past year or so, you’ve heard of the essential oils craze. While essential oils have been used for a long time for health and wellness, they have really hit the mainstream in the last couple of years. In other words, essential oils are having a moment.
But why should all the fun be reserved for humans? We don’t think it should!
We’ve partnered with Young Living, a popular retailer of oils and diffusers, for a night of Q&As and how-tos about reaping these health benefits for your dog. Young Living even offers a line of animal-specific oils and other products, since animals are often much more sensitive to these oils than humans.
If you’re simply curious about using essential oils for yourself and your home, you’re welcome at our Essential Oils Night, too! There will be time to ask questions about the health benefits of Young Living’s products for yourself and your family, even if you’re not ready to introduce them to your pets yet.
Even if you’re mildly curious, what do you have to lose? The class is free and is first come first served. And did we mention the giveaways?!
Join us April 20th at 6pm to learn more about how essential oils can improve the wellbeing of you and your family, whether that includes your four-legged friends or not!
Please call the front desk by April 5 to reserve your spot. 617-755-5775.
You may remember our post from a couple months ago, in which we treated you to an exclusive playlist by our resident music expert and hipster, Moose Pug. Well, the holiday season is upon us and we thought we’d ask him for a few festive suggestions for those playlists we’re all working on.
It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year! Here are a few dog-approved tips on celebrating the holidays with your Hound.
