Hounds Town USA is an interactive doggie daycare offering overnight boarding, grooming, and more. They have a significant advantage over other doggie daycare concepts due to the deep knowledge of canine psychology by their Founder, Mike Gould. Hounds Town USA has created facilities with dogs' true wants and needs in mind, which keeps the buildout simple and inexpensive. Bully breeds alone count for 20% of the dog population, yet they are refused service at many competitor doggie daycare franchises - but not at Hounds Town! Unlike many other doggie daycare concepts, they do not discriminate against dogs based on breed, age, or disability, allowing them to serve many more dogs.

Their owners can run their locations with a 15:1 dog to human ratio, and since they are closed to the public 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm each day, there is no need for additional staff to speak with customers.
4. Semi-Absentee Option:
Because of the simplicity of their business model and the minimal requirements for daily operations; most of their franchise owners operate as Semi-Absentee, allowing them to focus on pursuing other passions. In fact, this is a great opportunity for those who would like to run their business as semi-absentee from day one.
5. Canine Expertise:
Their "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.
