Philadelphia’s premier dog club offering DOGGIE DAYCARE,



Pool jump

Ahh sssSUMMMMMMERR!!!! This past winter was so awful we felt we needed something REALLY special to wash away our winter blues, so…we installed a pool!!  That’s right, the rumors are true; The Groove Hound has a POOL!!!  Not only are we the only doggie daycare offering indoor and OUTDOOR play areas, now we have a pool to boot.  

Our specially designed pool came 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 officially opened for all daycare attendees on MONDAY, JUNE 9, 2014.

Want to get your dog into the summer action at the Groove Hound?  Email or call to begin the enrollment process!!

Hours of Operation

The Playground:  Monday – Friday 7am – 7pm

Office Hours: Tuesday – Friday 8a-10am **

**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 often creates a bit of delay when checking and returning land line calls.  The best way to get in touch with us to gain information or enroll your pup at The Playground is via email at If you prefer to leave us a voice mail calls will be returned in a 24-48 hour period.**

December 2013: What’s new at The Groove Hound? Well, November was our BIRTHDAY, as of November 4, 2014,  it’s be 5 years since we opened our doors to our first grooming clients. What an amazing journey,  we are so proud of how far we’ve come and thank you all for your loyalty and support.

This year we’re celebrating our birthday by growing yet again.  In November, The Groove Hound welcomed our friends and family from our sister salon Suds & Swagger to our family, permanently.  Kelly and Gert decided to close down S&S in order to devote themselves full time to The Groove Hound. We’d like to welcome all of our S&S clients & volunteers and look forward to a successful merger.  Additionally, The Groove Hound’s outbound team has been busy pounding the pavements with our four-legged pals by branching out to include Dog Walking Services. After several years, our good friends at Love City Pets, Brent & Chrissy West, decided it was time for them to move on with the next chapter in their life and they’ve entrusted us with taking care of their beloved dog walking business and it’s clients. Effective immediately, The Groove Hound will officially be offering dog walking to our list of available services! :)

So, quick re-cap:  Happy Birthday Groove Hound, “Welcome” to the gang of Suds & Swagger  & Hurray for dog walking services now available through The Groove Hound!!!
