Home to the Happiest Dogs on Earth Adds a Fifth Location to Its Growing Doggie Daycare Empire
Interactive doggie daycare facility Hounds Town USA has gone to the dogs! The Long Island-based pet care facility—which offers doggie daycare, overnight boarding, grooming, pet taxi services, and more—is opening its fifth location in the Mineola area this coming fall.
The unique pet care facility is designed as a town for dogs, complete with a cinema, barber shop, “fire house,” “police station,” and a doggie hotel with luxury suites. Customers Lauren and Jimmy began frequenting Hounds Town Farmingdale with their dog Willy—a German Shepherd—about three years ago and fell in love with the concept. “Willy has been boarding at Hounds Town for three years, and loves every minute of his visits,” Lauren explains. “He was rescued from a local shelter four years ago, which led to my passion for rescue pups.”
While Lauren continued to work her day job in medical sales and Jimmy ran his real estate company, the couple began to seriously consider starting a second career by opening their very own Hounds Town. They decided on the bustling Mineola area after realizing the lack of doggie daycares and boarding facilities in the area. “We’re thrilled to join the Hounds Town team. We are both excited to be a part of a fantastic franchise!” says Lauren.
And Hounds Town USA President is just as thrilled. “We are really looking forward to expanding into Nassau County,” says Michael Gould, a retired NYPD canine handler and former Commanding Officer of the Nassau County Canine Unit. Since opening the first Hounds Town USA location in 2001, Gould has always had his eye set on expanding across Long Island—and beyond. “Lauren and Jimmy are an excellent addition to our Hounds Town USA family. Their background in business coupled with their love of animals is a recipe for success,” says Gould. “They have proven they’re capable of following our franchise model, and we look forward to them improving our system and our brand.”
Lauren and Jimmy have hit the ground running in search of the perfect building for their new doggie daycare, given the customers already in line for a Nassau location opening. The doggie daycare facility has been getting inquires about a Nassau County location for years. Once the facility is built out—which will be complete with a full-service day spa, luxury suites, and state of the art playrooms—the new owners will begin offering can’t-miss deals like FREE doggie daycare, half price monthly packages, free trial grooming, and more.
