Boston gets first luxury hotel for dogs

The Boston hotel industry is going to the dogs. News from the Bay State is that Urban Hound Daycare will open later this month marking the city’s first luxury hotel for dogs.

The 8,500 square foot space will be located in a two-story building in Boston’s South End. Plans for the canine campground include a hospital grade air filtration system, high-tech drainage and flushing system, K-9 grass, an Urban Hound training classroom and luxury sleep suites.

The Urban Hound, founded in 2003, serves local Boston neighborhoods including Beacon Hill, the Back Bay, the South End and South Boston.

Now pet owners have no excuse for not traveling. The only question is whether or not your dog’s digs are better than yours.
