  • Meet the Team - The Hound Ville

    Hannah - Director

    Hi, I'm Hannah! From a very young age I’ve had a passion for dogs. I realised this was all I’ve ever dreamt of, so I started to work on the business plans for the Hound Ville. Slowly but surely, I was writing plans, building ideas, mood boards and putting dreams into reality. In September 2019 we first started The Hound Ville LTD providing a dog walking service in the areas of Cleckheaton, Liversedge, Birkenshaw, Gomersal and surrounding areas. We then started renovation on our first (of hopefully many!) Grooming spas in Birkenshaw. I am fully trained in grooming, animal management, dog behaviour, dog massage and gained qualifications such as dog sitting, canine first aid, normal first aid, canine communication and more. I am wanting to build something I’ve always dreamt of - a place you can bring your dog and have the best care & experience. No matter what personality your dog is, we always work around you!

I am also completing my SQP exams to sell licences medicine for dogs and cats for flea and worming products. In my spare time I love to be at home with my partner, socialising with my friends and exploring new places. I am love working with the Hound Ville team to experience a new pace of working, learning new skills and also help share my knowledge I have gained over the years with other team members. Most of all... I love to make all your fur babies look fabulous in our relaxed environment.

  • Crystal - Senior Dog Groomer

    Hi I'm Crystal! I'm one of The Hound Ville's grooming spa stylists and have been with the team since September 2020. I'm a fully qualified groomer with both level 2 & 3 in grooming. Dogs are a huge passion of mine and always have been! I have two French bulldogs called Rocco & Reggie and a boxer named Rizzo. I have great experience with small dogs to large dogs, and a variety of breeds from standard poodle's right through to French bulldogs. Working with dogs from anxious right through to excited and a variety of different coats has given me the experience and knowledge to provide an amazing service. I love my job and always keen on learning every single day with the Hound Ville. My hobbies include walking my pooches, watching a good series on Netflix and I’ve just started competitive grooming. My dream breed is a bedlington terrier!
