Welcome to The Groove Hound

Philadelphia’s premier K9 Club offering Doggie Daycare, Dog Walking, Training, & Rescue.  

Dedicated to providing unconditional love to dogs all over the city.

Sadly, summer has past. Soon there will be pumpkins, turkeys, Christmas Trees, Chanukah Harry and …snow…which means… the pool is officially closed until next spring.   No need for frowns…there’s still plenty of fun to be had at The Playground year round.  As the temperatures chill, we’ll bust out our fancy-schmancy outdoor heat lamps so our four-legged companions can party on. 



Our specially designed pool comes all the way from sunny California where it was built and created JUST FOR DOGS!! The outside of the pool is constructed from the same materials used in kayaks and the triple filtration system keeps the pool fresh,  clean & bacteria free. Wagtastic!  The pool opens in late May, early June, each year and remains open until late September.

**Since we are basically a “Mom & Mom” shop, we don’t maintain regular office hours.  More often than not, it’s an “all hands on deck” operation around here and we are actively on the floor or in the yard with the dogs.  This can create a bit of delay when responding to emails but rest assured, unless we’re on vacation (which almost never happens), we’ll respond to all inquiries within 48 hours.    The best way to get in touch with us to gain information or enroll your pup at The Playground is via email at thegroovehound@gmail.com**
