It’s Kool to Drool

Founded in 2012, We saw a need for a Doggie Daycare and Boarding experience in Central Texas that was better than the rest! Happy Hounds Aquatic & Daycare Center is the result of our vision and hard work. We know that you will see our passion for doggies and they will have the time of their life! It’s Kool to Drool!

Grooming Services

Pets certainly know when they are clean and looking good. Well-groomed pets are happier, better behaved, healthier, and more outgoing. Just like all of us, they feel good when they look good. Happy Hounds offers a complete line of fine grooming services to bring out the best of appearance and personality in any breed. We work carefully, never rush, and do not overbook appointments. We always take our time and do it right. Our grooming categories may be described as follows:

Basic: This is an essential service that maintains the appearance and hygiene of your pet. Each Basic service at Happy Hounds includes:

  • Premium shampoos and fine conditioners
  • Blow dry
  • Full brushing out
  • Nail trimming
  • Ear cleaning Expression of glands (dogs)

Advanced: This service includes all Basic items above plus our groomers will trim the hair around:

  • Paws
  • Ears
  • Loose ends
  • The potty and private areas
  • Other places as required

This is less expensive than a full haircut and appropriate for dogs and cats who want to maintain the current length of their coat, but simply need a clean-up and a sanitary trim.

Custom Cuts: This service consists of a full haircut from nose to tail, usually using scissors and clippers. Haircuts start with a full bath, brush, and blow dry and include all the elements described in our Advanced service. You decide exactly how you want your pet to look, how long or short the hair should be and whether your pet should look full-bodied or slim. Happy Hounds groomers will work hard to give your pet the individual look you want that will assuredly bring out the essence of its personality.


Pricing: There are many variables in pet grooming, such as whether your pet has long or short hair and if the hair is matted and tangled. Therefore, there is no set pricing for fine grooming. Our groomers set individual prices for each pet, largely based on the time required to complete the chosen service. Factors which determine the price of a service include:

    • Amount of scissor work
    • Brushing
    • Clipping
    • Degree of matting
    • Difficulty of the cut
    • Disposition of the animal
    • Drying time
    • Length of hair
    • Size of pet

However, you will find our prices quite reasonable. All you need to do is call or come in for specific pricing.

Grooming and Spa Options:

  • De-shedding(rejuvenate the coat)
  • De-matting
  • Teeth brushing
  • Nail trimming
  • Perfume
  • Bows
