WHY OWN A HOUNDS TOWN USA?

Are you looking for more than just financial success? Do you want to feel fulfilled in life? Want to make a difference in your community by providing superior service? There are many reasons to own a Hounds Town USA doggie daycare franchise. Here are just a few.

Pet Industry

LOW INVESTMENT

By utilizing simple, cost-effective and dog-friendly materials in our facilities, Hounds Town USA allows Franchise Owners to open their business starting at $339,300. This investment is significantly lower than other doggie daycare franchises in the country which allows our Owners to break even sooner and enjoy larger profit margins.

CANINE EXPERTISE

Our “Unrivaled Canine Expert,” Founder Michael S. Gould, has almost 40 years of direct canine experience that he passes along to all new Hounds Town Owners. Thanks to MIke’s in-depth understanding of dog psychology and behavior, we’ve modeled our concept more closely after childcare solutions than dog daycare options.

FREEDOM & FLEXIBILITY

We believe that in many ways, time is more valuable than money. Therefore, we have built a doggie daycare franchise business model that allows our Franchise Owners the opportunity to do more of what they love.

SIMPLE OPERATION

We have spent years developing our training program, which has fully systematized our business model and allows us to quickly teach new Franchise Owners. We carefully created the business model to ensure that simplicity, alongside profitability, are priority.

“Each month we continue to see growth. We are living out our dreams!”

HOW IT ALL STARTED

MIKE GOULD

After a successful career on the police force as one of the founding members of the NYPD’s elite Canine Unit, Hounds Town President Michael Gould sought to deepen his passion for dogs by opening a dog boarding and training location in Long Island in 2001.

After a successful first few years in business, Michael decided to reinvest some of his profits into a second facility, and after seeing a remarkably similar level of growth, he realized that he had created something very, very special.

JACKIE BONDANZA

After studying business and communication, and earning a Master’s degree in journalism, Jackie Bondanza took a job in her field of study that she thought was going to make her happy. Despite finding success, Jackie wasn’t finding the life fulfillment she had been looking for.

After making huge life changes, Jackie happened upon Hounds Town USA as a customer, and saw huge potential in the brand. In 2014, Jackie joined Hounds Town, eventually becoming the company’s CEO. She used her experience, education and drive to grow Hounds Town into a national franchise with over 100 locations.

HEAR FROM OUR FRANCHISE OWNERS

LAUREN DUFFY

Island Park, NY

“Hounds Town was a perfect medium. They guide you, and they give you tools to grow, but they also give you enough leeway to let you create and do things on your own.”

STEVE GARIBELL

Bergen County, NJ

“The fact that Hounds Town really takes the time to look at the behavior of the dog, and group the dog in the correct pack; they’re really maximizing their time, and they’re safe and well cared for.”

“Working with dogs is infinitely more fulfilling for me than working with people ever was. If you are having a problem finding your niche with humans, animals is the way to go.”

ANNE MCDONALD

Garden City, NY

“We wanted to secure our future for ourselves instead of securing a future for someone else.”

ANTHONY MITCHELL

Bergen County, NJ

“The business model really stood out to me because of the way they do it differently. It’s all based on dog behavior and everything is based on the dog’s point of view.”
