Hounds Town USA Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022


For 20 years, Hounds Town USA has been home to the happiest dogs on Earth. Our customers love us so much that since our inception, over 1 million canine visitors have enjoyed our interactive doggie daycare, overnight boarding, grooming, retail products, and tail-wagging rides in our pet taxi!

Founded in 2001, by a former NYPD K-9 Unit Handler and Commanding Officer of the Nassau County Police Department, Hounds Town USA offers an affordable and refreshingly simple approach to pet care. Our simple business model is based on a straightforward and honest strategy that provides our Franchise Owners with amazing returns while giving them the opportunity to spread smiles among their four-legged customers.

Hounds Town USA has a significant advantage over other doggie daycare concepts due to the deep knowledge of canine psychology by our Founder. We created our facility with dogs in mind, rather than their owners. This concept has a significantly lower investment than other doggie daycare franchises with the ability to run the business as a semi-absentee owner. With amazing economics and flexible ownership options, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
