About Denise

Denise McElhaney is the co-owner of Denise’s Happy Hounds, along with her husband, Dean.  Denise studied at Petco Grooming School and has been certified since December 2, 2018. While she worked at several shops, honing her skills, Denise’s passion for grooming reached new heights, as she realized the need for premium dog grooming in our area. Denise appreciates the love and support she has received from our community, which has helped her achieve her dreams of opening her own one-of-a-kind Dog Spa. Nothing thrills Denise more than your pups racing through our door to jump in her lap and give her puppy kisses.

After a bad experience with another groomer, I asked around and got several recommendations for Denise’s Happy Hounds. I am so happy I went with the recommendations!!! Both of my babies looked great and they were not stressed when I picked them up.
Seriously so thankful for this place! My sweet puppy isn’t the most comfortable with grooming and Mrs Denise made sure she got the job done. She was very understanding of a family situation and made special accommodations for me. Hands down the best customer service and groomer out there
Bubba & belle had their first spa day and we are in love with the way they look & smell! Everyone was so nice & loving to our babies! 10/10 recommend!!
I love the Wonderful service Denise and her team provide ! My pups look great and are happy campers when they come to get groomed ! I won’t go anywhere else - they are the best!!
Thank you for taking such great care of our fur baby! This is the best she’s looked in a while
Literally OBSESSED with Ms. Denise!!! My baby always comes home looks O SO HANDSOME and smelling like the Prince Charming that he is  thank you Ms. Denise for always going above and beyond!!
she did a wonderful job on my 2 poodles and long hair dachshund. when I picked up my fur babies they were all happy and none had the nerves like with previous groomer. Definitely will be going back!
We had the best experience with Denise!  Our Golden doodle needed some TLC and we couldn’t of asked for a better groomer!  Thank you!
Absolutely amazing! She did a great job!
Ms. Denise is amazing and so great with our dog Oakley. We have tried so many groomers and we have finally found one who is consistent and willing to work with our busy schedules too. She educates us on what we need to do at home and she treats our dog like her own. Thank you Ms. Denise for making our Oakley so pretty!
