Our History

Hound Dog, founded in 1994, is America’s premier provider of specialty lawn and garden products.
Hound Dog started out with a product that was fashioned from parts that were cut and shaped out of a car hood. It had prongs on the end that easily pulled weeds from a standing position. The inventor had a back injury and was looking for an easy and effective way to remove weeds from his yard without straining his back or using chemicals. Thus, the Weed Hound was born.

From its modest beginnings, Hound Dog has grown to twelve home landscaping tools. Of this number, three are patented and one patent is pending. The products are sold nationally at major retailers and garden centers. All Hound Dog products are based on simple design and easy operation. They’re built to last a lifetime and sold with a limited lifetime guarantee.

In April of 2006, Hound Dog was acquired by Ames, North America’s leading, as well as oldest, manufacturer of non-powered lawn and garden tools. Ames has been manufacturing and selling innovative lawn and garden tools since 1774. This acquisition provides the Hound Dog brand with additional resources and increased product innovation capabilities.

Today, Hound Dog continues to develop new and better ways to make home landscaping easy and enjoyable. Hound Dog aims to keep improving backyard living by giving homeowners the tools they need to easily keep their yards looking great

Hound Dog’s goal is to make it easier for homeowners to enjoy spending time in their backyards. The company is proud to be part of the great American tradition of backyard fun with family and friends.
