Some Big Changes

This has quite an eventful summer in the Urbandog and Park9 family! Of course there’s been the usual outdoor fun, sprinklers and swimming as the temperatures soared. But as we continue into a new era of our business, we wanted to provided a bit of behind the scenes information to you, our clients, friends and #Park9family.

We’ve been proud to be an industry leader in Toronto’s dog care scene and after 13 years, were ready for a visual facelift. Separate to this, we were so excited to bring a new property on board; a third Toronto location in Liberty Village. How are these two things related? Together they spurred a need to refresh our logo and our brand’s appearance. We wanted to ensure that all the properties were combined and linked; by name and by look.

There were a couple reasons for this is. We want to ensure that everyone expects and knows that your dogs will receive the same quality of care we’ve been providing for over a decade in the Distillery District in our younger locations: our state-of-the-art boarding facility near Pearson Airport and our newest spot in Liberty Village. All three properties are also owned and operated by the same team that they always were! You will find Susan our owner/founder logging some miles and splitting her time between the three locations as her amazing team runs the locations on a day in, day out basis.

So about that logo. You may have already seen it and we have to admit, we really love it! It has literally taken our two names and combined them. Our company is now called Park9 and we’re all about UrbanDog Playcare and Resorts. Here’s how that comes together visually:

Another big change was the launch of our Liberty Village location where we will be offering playcare, grooming and retail at our new location. We offer our complimentary shuttle to qualifying dogs from both of our downtown locations that can whisk your dog on a days notice up to our Pearson airport resort and back.

It’s never been easier to arrange longer term care for your dog. And as a company, we’re so proud to grow and expand to serve more of Toronto’s amazing dog guardians. We are grateful that you’ve chosen Park9 to take care of your family member and therefore to become a family member of ours too. We are excited to continue this journey with you.


Have a great summer and see you at one of our three new locations:
