Have you always wanted to take your dog to Hawaii with you?


What is Aloha Hound?

Many of you will know that 'Aloha' is a Hawaiian word that is used both for greeting and parting from someone. However, Aloha also means affection, peace, compassion, and mercy. Taking all of these traits into account, Erin founded Aloha Hound in November 2016 as an organic dog retreat offering grooming, spa treatments, day care, and amazing boutique treats and drinks; all with a fabulous tropical theme! And as a side note, in case you were wondering, the two dogs on Aloha Hound's logo are Erin's two beautiful staffies. Aloha Hound is located in Loganholme, approximately 29km south of Brisbane's business central district. It's conveniently located on the highway itself, with plenty of parking available on site. Aloha indeed!

What is Aloha Hound like?

"Inspired by the freedom of the outdoors, the rolling waves of the ocean and the sounds of paws on the street, Aloha Hound is a safe and welcome place for you to bring your best friend. As soon as you walk in, you can smell the fragrant soy candles and see the amazing organic products. You know you have joined a community of like minded animal lovers."

Aloha Hound is literally like a slice of Hawaii in the middle of Queensland; it's brightly furnished with recurring themes of blue and green, with a rustic beach vibe going with the decor. This indoor tropical doggy paradise is complete with a 'photo booth' - feel free to grab a tropical prop and take a photo against Aloha Hound's signature background drop of waves. The beautiful blue waves as a background makes for a very Instagram worthy shot - remember to tag @alohahound so that Erin can see your wonderful photos!

What services does Aloha Hound offer?

It seems like they offer everything under the sun and more when it comes to grooming services for your pooch! All grooming services begin with the Malibu Shampoo Treatment, and all products used on your pooch are organic, natural, and eco-friendly products - your furbaby will be in safe hands. Choose from basic grooming services (such as shampoo wash, warm blow dry, full brush, nail trim and file, ear pluck and clean), or opt for a service with a little extra pampering (such as 'Island Escape Spa Treatment', 'Signature Big Neck Massage', 'Bahama Glow Beauty Scrub'). There are also additional extras that perfectly complement your chosen grooming service, such as a teeth-clean, flea and tick rinse, and de-matting/groom out. And of course, beauty isn't just how shiny a coat is, or how white teeth are - how about some 'So Cal Colouring' for ears and tails, brightly painted nails (using non-toxic doggy nail polish), or even a temporary Waikiki tattoo? The options are endless!

Aloha Hound also acts as an indoor doggie day care retreat, with ball games, agility, hide & seek organised throughout the day. Throw in access to interactive toys that increase mental stimulation and upbeat music that releases energy levels, and you've got the perfect solution as to how to best entertain your pup while you're at work. Plus, you can choose from a wide range of organic treats in store (more details below) to really spoil your pooch!

If your dog has lots of energy to burn, then how about an outdoor doggie day care adventure? It's the perfect way to release their energy and provide both mental and physical stimulation - socialise and exercise in an exciting outdoor environment (both bay and bush), break up the week, destress, get fit and healthy, and perhaps most importantly, make some new friends! Aloha Hound plans every adventure with your beloved pooch's care and personal needs in mind.

What was your experience of Aloha Hound?

Nothing but the best - Erin is very friendly and very welcoming, to both pawrents and their furbabies. It doesn't matter whether you're there for a grooming service, or to drop your doggy off for daycare, or just popping in to have a look around, Erin is sure to greet all patrons warmly with a smile (for the hoomans) chucked in with, of course, lots of pats and cuddles (for the pooches)! Eddy and Sam were even lucky enough to receive two tropical bandanas with the cutest pineapple prints on them, free of charge, despite not having got any grooming done. And we know we were not alone in this very positive experience, as can be seen from Facebook reviews:

"Thank you so much for your incredible care for my not so little boy, we will definitely be returning." - Mariah

"So happy with the service here, and Benji has never been happier with his haircut 🐶 Thank you so much, we will definitely be back." - Caylee

"I have nothing but praise for all the good things they do here at Aloha Hound; I would have no problems telling people about taking your fur child here." - Jason
