About us

Hondenhoek - the online store for dogs and owners

Welcome to hondhoek.com, the online store for dogs and their owners! Our adventure started in 2014 when Niek Uitenbos and Vaya Simons, two driven entrepreneurs with a passion for animals, decided to start their own online store. With five dogs, three cats, two sheep and even a horse in their home in Nuenen, the Netherlands, they were surrounded by a love for animals.

It all started as WOEF Boutique, a boutique that specialized in everything dogs need. But in April 2020, Niek Uitenbos took over on his own after Vaya Simons left the team. He decided to take a new course and moved to beautiful Wallonia in Belgium. There he gave WOEF Boutique a new name and a breath of fresh air: hondhoek.com was born!

At hondhoek.com we strive to make your shopping experience as pleasant and easy as possible. We offer a wide range of high-quality products for dogs, ranging from food and toys to accessories and care products. All our products are carefully selected to meet the needs and wishes of your four-legged friend.
