Michael S. Gould began his canine career in 1982 when as a New York City Police Officer he was selected from hundreds of candidates to become one of the first members of the department’s elite Canine Unit. After a long and successful career on the police force, Mike sought to deepen his passion for dogs.

Mike’s unique canine training experience and background organically lent itself to opening a doggie daycare business and dog-sitting facility. In 2001, Mike opened his first dog boarding location in Port Jefferson, Long Island, New York. After a successful first few years in business, Mike decided to reinvest some of his profits into a second dog daycare facility, and after seeing a remarkably similar level of business growth, he realized that he had created something very special.

Mike Gould, Founder
Jackie Bondanza, CEO

After studying business and communication at the University of Scranton and earning her Master’s degree in journalism, Jackie Bondanza was making a 5-hour round-trip commute every day for work. Even though she found a good job in the field she’d studied for, something was missing. Every day she’d come home and feel overly stressed and extremely unhappy with where she was. This inspired Jackie to make a series of big changes in her life, and dedicate her time to finding something she was passionate about.

After moving, Jackie was unsure of how to acclimate her dogs to her new surroundings. An internet search for doggy day care led Jackie to the nearby Hounds Town USA. When she walked in, she was immediately drawn to the simplicity and fun nature of the brand — and was impressed with Mike’s insight on her dogs, and his canine expertise in general. 

She started to wonder why this brand wasn’t already nationally recognized or offering dog daycare franchises for sale. Over the next couple of years, Jackie learned from Mike and the team at Hounds Town USA, eventually becoming the company’s CEO. She recognized the huge opportunity for the Hounds Town pet franchise brand, and used her experience, education and drive to grow Hounds Town into a nationally recognized dog daycare franchise with more than 100 franchise locations!

After 20+ years of carefully testing and tweaking the doggy daycare business model, we are excited to finally launch this pet franchise nationwide, by partnering with like-minded entrepreneurs across the country who are excited to open a doggie daycare that creates the happiest dogs on Planet Earth!


Opening a successful dog boarding business requires having a great team of similar-minded employees who share your passion for dogs and providing top-notch care. Dogs need plenty of exercise, socialization, and love, and it’s important to find employees who will treat each dog individually and give them the attention they need.

At Hounds Town USA doggie daycare franchise, we believe that happy dogs start with happy employees, so we take the time to carefully select individuals who will be a good fit for our team. We only hire employees who are true dog lovers and who we would trust to take care of our own dogs.

An Overview Of The Pet Care Industry

The pet care industry is rapidly growing and is projected to expand by $202.6 billion by 2025, driven by the increasing adoption of pets and increased demand for premium pet care products and services. As technology advances, grooming, boarding, and pet training facilities have become easily accessible to owners, with 69% of millennials likely to use technology for pet tracking. 

Additionally, pet owners heavily invest in apps to monitor their pet’s health habits, nutritional intake, and overall activity. With the low startup costs of getting into mobile pet grooming through franchising rather than running a brick-and-mortar business, the pet care industry is ripe with lucrative business opportunities for entrepreneurs. 

In 2021, pet owners spent over $100 billion on their pets in the United States alone. This number is only expected to rise in the coming years as more and more people adopt pets into their families and homes.

Inmate Volunteer Program: Handcuffs to Heeling

Handcuffs to Heeling program launched an inmate volunteer program at Yaphank Correctional Facility. It pairs selected dog-loving inmates with adoptable dogs in need of obedience, training, and socialization. 

At its inception, the program paired six homeless dogs from a local shelter with six inmates from the Yaphank Correctional Facility. The inmates were tasked with teaching and training the dogs’ basic obedience commands and manners while also providing them with much-needed socialization. Four weeks later, the inmates had done exemplary work, and the dogs made great strides in becoming more adoptable.

HTUSA loves all dog breeds

No Discrimination

Many doggie daycare business solutions turn away potential customers every day by discriminating against dogs based on breed, age, and disability. But we don’t! Bully breeds such as pit bulls, German shepherds, boxers, and bulldogs are the most common dog breeds denied service and make up 20% of the U.S. canine population.
