WE LOVE YOUR
DOG AS YOU DO

Welcome to Hempstead Hounds

We're a small, friendly dog grooming salon that was founded in 2012 in the beautiful Essex village of Hempstead (hence the name). Originally the salon was based from a house. Thanks to the loyal and growing number customers we have gained we have progressed to a purpose built salon at Taylor's Barn, Elder Street, Wimbish. We are situated next to a dog sitting service (which our customers find handy) and a new café (which our customers find delicious).

Hempstead Hounds now has 5 staff, which means we can give nervous dogs, difficult dogs, elderly dogs or puppies the extra attention they require. We guarantee, unlikely many salons, that at least one member of staff that has completed the “K9 first aid” course (run by the institute of modern dog trainers) will be present at the salon on a working day.

As well as full grooming services for all breeds we sell a variety of dog beds, dog clothing, dog treats and exercise aids. We hope you find the information on our website useful in making an appointment, which you can do on our website or by phoning us. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing your dog very soon!

Truffle had a great groom today. The groomers did just what I’d asked and Truffle seemed relaxed when i collected her.

Benson was groomed here today! We were worried as he is a bit nervous about baths and stuff but he was a good boy and looks and smells amazing now! Thank you! Will be returning for sure!
