Holistic Hound was founded by Heidi Hill in 2003 in Berkeley, California, and was one of the first “holistic” pet stores in the Bay Area.  Growing up in Dallas, Texas, Heidi loved animals, especially her beloved horse, Jazzy, and dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. However, her career took a different turn, and she spent 20 years in the corporate world in finance, human resources, and sales.  During that time she discovered homeopathy and decided to go back to school to study more about this amazing 200-year-old healing modality. Her knowledge and understanding of health and wellness were forever changed, and her new perspective ultimately led her to pave a new path that would allow her to combine her two passions: animals and holistic healthcare.


Our mission is to help improve the health, wellness and quality of life of dogs and cats.  For over 15 years, we have provided our loyal local community ongoing support through nutritional consultations, education, talks on health promotion, referrals, and the best products and foods available.  We host adoption events whenever possible and fundraisers for local shelters and rescues, and now provide curbside delivery and online shopping for our products for our customers’ convenience. We look forward to continuing to educate the community on preventative healthcare and providing the resources for pets to have the best quality of life.
