Scenthound has unprecedented market potential because it serves a historically underserved market: the 80% of dogs that don’t need stylized haircuts.

That said, their services are designed to improve the health and longevity of ALL dogs through a routine care schedule in five core areas of maintenance: Skin, Coat, Ears, Nails and Teeth.

The low cost but high profit membership-based recurring revenue model is amplified with "as-needed" add on services—nail grinding, barber-style haircuts, facial scrubs, etc.—& products to maintain health between visits. Scenthound provides a lower-cost, membership model and resistant to technological changes (Amazon is not replacing pet services) or economic downturns (we still spend money on our ptes).
