Holistic Hound was started by Heidi Hill in 2003 in Berkeley, California and and is a blend of her two passions: animals and holistic healthcare.  It was inspired by her then 2 year old husky, Pearl.  Pearl passed away in May 2016 at the age of 14 1/2.  She was, and will forever be, the muse and mascot of the store.

Our mission is to help improve the health, wellness and longevity of dogs and cats. We provide ongoing support to our clients through consultations, inspiring on-site classes/talks, referrals to holistic practitioners and by offering the best products and services available.

We specialize in natural and complementary remedies and therapies for many common problems such as allergies, separation anxiety and arthritis, including nutritional, herbal and glandular supplements, homeopathy, and flower essences. Knowing that nutrition provides the foundation of good health, we carry premium quality human-grade foods, specializing in locally sourced raw foods, bones and treats. Holistic Hound also offers a beautiful and unique selection of collars and leashes, ecologically friendly beds, and toys.

We have been serving the community with our knowledge and experience in pet health and nutrition through retail, wholesale specialty products and integrative holistic services.  We, like our customers, lavish attention on our animals and understand first hand the deep connection between pets and people.

Heidi graduated with a bachelors of business administration from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. She spent twenty years in the corporate world in finance, human resources and sales. During that time Heidi began her lifelong study and practice of homeopathy and graduated from Pacific Academy of Homeopathy in 1997.
