Values & History

Here at Scenthound, we're dog lovers and always have been. A dozen years ago, we decided to turn our passion for dogs into a business. We started as a mobile dog grooming, then expanded with grooming salons. We met thousands of dogs and their parents. After several years caring for all sorts of dogs, we discovered that most dogs out there are not getting the routine care they need to stay clean, comfortable and healthy.

Not all dogs need traditional grooming. Did you know that 9 of the 10 most popular breeds don't need haircuts? However, EVERY dog needs essential care like bathing, ear cleaning, nail trimming, and dental care. Too many dogs out there are not getting the care that they need because dog parents either don't know they need it or don't know an easy and affordable way to get it. Thus, Scenthound was born. "

Industry Performance

Scenthound’s untapped business opportunity will flourish given the dramatic spike in U.S. pet ownership and spending, especially among younger generations. Scenthound’s explosive growth is due, in part, to its investment in proprietary, innovative technology and is bolstered by statistics pointing to increased pet ownership, spending, and outsourcing of services, including:

  • Almost 2/3 of 18-to-34-year-olds plan to get a pet in the next five years, driving a 14% increase in pet ownership (source: Alphawise)
  • Millennials and Gen Z groups are more inclined to outsource services than any others (source: APPA)
  • Researchers estimate health care spending on pets will increase by 33% between 2019-2029 (source: Mars Veterinary Health)
  • 45% of American pet owners spend the same amount of money or more on their pets’ healthcare as they do on their own (source: Fortunly) With the veterinarian and vet tech shortage expected to increase (source: Mars Veterinary Health) – pet owners are searching for a more efficient, affordable and tech led solution for routine cleaning and preventive care. Looking forward to 2030, a surge in pet parents, favorable demographics, and increased per-pet spending positions the pet industry to nearly triple to $275 billion (Morgan Stanley):
