Pet Wellness Starts with Routine Care

Local couple brings dog-wellness business to Gainesville

Scenthound is on a mission to provide an easy, affordable way to give your dog the routine care they need to be healthy, happy and comfortable.

“It’s scientifically proven that dogs make people happier and healthier. A clean, healthy dog gets more love and snuggles which is good for dogs and people alike,” says Scenthound CEO and founder Tim Vogel. “Our goal is to make the world just a little bit better by helping people practice love.”

Key area to focus on maintaining your pet wellness:

  • Dogs need regular, ongoing care to stay at peak health.
  • Heartworm prevention and thorough routine check-ins should be performed once a month.
  • Regular care helps maintain a dog’s healthy coat and prevents disease.

Daily walks and attention, nutritious food, and regular baths are the basics of dog care, but there’s much more involved in giving your furry friend their best life.

“Unlike traditional dog grooming that focuses on breed-specific styling, Scenthound services are centered around routine and preventive care for dogs in five core areas: Skin, Coat, Ears, Nails, and Teeth (SCENT),” according to Joseph Pizzurro, co-owner with his wife Kathryn, of Scenthound Gainesville SW.

In addition to routine care, Scenthound provides every pet parent with a thorough evaluation of their pup’s health via a S.C.E.N.T. Check that is sent after every visit.  This allows pet parents to stay top of their dog’s wellness and be alert to any changes.

The first of several for north central Florida, Scenthound Gainesville SW is located in Haile, with plans to expand within the region.


Routine care keeps dogs clean and comfortable and is critical to their overall health. It's a common misconception that if a breed doesn't require a haircut or blow-dry, they don't need grooming — all dogs need basic maintenance to stay clean and healthy. Basic hygiene and routine care can even extend their life!
