Luxury. Comfort. Style.


What is the Urban Hound @ INK?

Our Ink Block location is a daycare designed specifically for small dogs (under 35lbs) – a unique space designed to be an extension of your home.

The best part? It’s not just for Ink Block residents!

What’s different?

We’re taking the boutique, personal design of our current space and translating it for a small dog specific experience in the luxury Ink Block community. Dogs under 35 pounds will enjoy play and rest in an area designed for comfort. Play structures, toys, and outdoor adventures will provide exciting elements of fun, while designated napping and resting areas will cater to those pups who love to lounge.

Dogs will have three outdoor adventures per day. Two 20-minute leash walks will provide an opportunity to stretch their legs outside and to use the bathroom, while a midday hour-long excursion to Underground at Ink Block will give them increased space for zoomies and fetch.

A designated senior room will allow our older Hounds to relax in their own space, without being jostled or startled by the more energetic play happening in the daycare area.
