Hounds at Home: Grooming and Animal Services

Your Pet’s Second Best Friend


My Story


Hello, I'm Sarah (pictured with Star). Having grown up on a farm, I have always been surrounded by animals. From cows, sheep and horses to dogs, cats and even ferrets. 

I currently have one rescue Greyhound, a Labrador, a small flock of sheep and some hens.

My grooming journey began in 2019, a dream which I have always wanted to pursue. I am fully trained, qualified, insured and DBS checked.

Whether you are looking for a dog groomer, a pet sitter or someone to look after your small holding, then look no further.

Conveniently located to serve Barnard Castle, Teesdale, Richmond and the surrounding area.

Pet sitting

If you are going to be out for the day/ evening, and are worried that your pet will miss having some company then I can arrange to come and sit with them. I can even arrange to have 'sleep overs' with your pet, where I will stay overnight with them.
