At The Orange Hound we are passionate about providing a quality grooming experience for your pet in a comfortable and relaxed environment at a competitive price.
Who am I?
My name is Jackie, I have been an avid animal lover all of my life and was brought up with dogs cats and horses. I currently have two dogs, a cat and a giant Flemish rabbit. I have most recently worked in a renowned salon in the Redland area of Bristol where I’ve met some amazing clients and their dogs and with who I have managed to build up a great rapport. When the salon decided to relocate I decided to open my own grooming spa…The Orange Hound.
I am City & Guilds qualified having studied at Bridgwater college and an award winning academy in Somerset where I obtained both my level 2 and level 3 intro City & Guilds in dog grooming both with distinctions
I have gained experience in grooming a wide variety of dogs with many different personalities, their temperaments may vary but my standards and care always remain at the highest level.
My salon is located close to Horfield common and Henleaze, Bristol and is furnished with the type of high quality equipment that you would expect in a modern and professional salon. We also stock a small selection of toys, treats, collars and leads.
For most of us our dogs are an extension of our family so at The Orange Hound we want to exceed your grooming expectations so that you keep coming back. We want to get to know you and your four legged friends and understand what your needs and requirements are so we can continue to have very satisfied customers.
Is to provide an exceptional service by creating a relaxed and loving atmosphere for all of the dogs that visit us where owners feel confident that their dogs are being groomed and looked after by experienced, caring and professional staff.
Our purpose built dog bath makes bathing safe & comfortable for your dog, we gently massage your dog’s coat which stimulates the skin, removing any dead coat leaving your pooch feeling refreshed and smelling gorgeous.
All the dogs that visit us at The Orange Hound are hand dried by their designated groomer in our open plan grooming room. We do not use cage dryers as we believe that this could cause stress to the dog.
Brushing is a great way to help build trust and relationships with the dog and their groomer/owner whilst being an essential part of the grooming process it also helps to stimulate the oil glands of the skin.
As we always put your dog’s welfare first any coats that are badly matted may need to be clipped off, this will be discussed with you prior to the start of the groom.
Clipping & Scissoring
We will endeavour to clip or scissor coats to the most practical and aesthetically pleasing style that suits you and your dog’s lifestyle. However if you have a particular style in mind our groomer will be happy to discuss this with you prior to the groom.
We will clean your dogs ears using a high quality cleansing product.
We will clip your dog’s nails (if necessary) this is part of a full groom.
We will slowly introduce your puppy to new tools like brushes and clippers as well as all of the sensations that go with it, building up their trust and confidence whilst making the grooming process a happy and enjoyable experience.
What our customers have to say about us…

“She cares, she knows her clips and I trust her with my 3 Bassets who are my babies! This includes my epileptic hound who did fit and Jackie’s care and action sorted her out and called me immediately. More importantly she is qualified and insured – why would you trust just anyone with your woof?”
