"One of the most enduring friendships in history — dogs and their people, people and their dogs."
— Terry Kay
THE SHORT STORY
At Scenthound, we’re dog lovers and always have been. In 2005, we decided to turn our passion for dogs into a business. We began as a mobile grooming business, then, in 2010, expanded to brick-and-mortar salons. We met thousands of dogs and their parents.
After nearly a decade in the dog grooming business, we discovered that most dogs are not getting the routine care they need in order to stay clean, comfortable and healthy.
Not all dogs need “traditional” grooming. In fact, up to 80% of breeds don’t get haircuts … but, every dog needs basic care like bathing, ear cleaning, nail trimming and dental care.
Too many dogs are not getting the care they need because dog parents either;
- don’t know they need it,
- don’t want to do it themselves, or
- don’t know an easy and affordable way to get it done.
Thus, in 2013, the Scenthound concept was born. By 2017, we had four Scenthounds open in Palm Beach County, FL. And in 2018, the Scenthound Franchise enterprise began.
Our vision is creating a world where dogs and their humans love and connect on a daily basis. We are removing barriers to that connection by educating dog parents and providing the necessary care to keep their dogs clean and healthy.
A clean, healthy dog = more love.
