Tails are Wagging as Hounds Town USA Opens a New Location in Winter Park

November 14, 2023

ORLANDO, Fla. – Dogs throughout Winter Park and its surrounding communities are in for a treat with a new and unique pet care experience coming to town.

Hounds Town USA, the daycare and boarding concept where everything they do is for the dogs, announced the opening of its newest location in Winter Park. Located at 647 Herald Avenue, the new daycare is owned by Shaun and Paige Allen and will open on November 17. 

The Allens, who also own a Hounds Town location in Sanford, recognized a need for the brand’s services in additional communities after the facility consistently reached boarding capacity. The duo realized that the dog-friendly Winter Park community would benefit from Hounds Town’s model and knew it was the perfect place to further their business ownership endeavors. Paige, who currently manages the Sanford location, will run the day-to-day operations of the new facility, and aims to deliver the same exceptional service she provides to the Sanford community.

“After around three years of ownership with Hounds Town, we’ve seen an incredible demand for dedicated and trustworthy dog daycare services in the Orlando area, and Winter Park felt like a natural fit for further development,” said Paige. “We know that finding pet daycare can be a challenge for many, so we’re excited to offer a solution that the Winter Park community can rely on.”

In 2023, Hounds Town has experienced tremendous growth, solidifying its position as a pet leader in the pet care industry. With a commitment to providing exceptional care and services for dogs, Hounds Town has captured the trust and loyalty of pet owners nationwide. As Hounds Town continues to expand its footprint across the country, it remains dedicated to fostering strong relationships with franchisees and maintaining its position as the leading daycare and boarding facility.

“Shaun and Paige have been an incredibly important part of the Hounds Town family and brand since they joined in 2019. As one of the first stores that opened out of state and during a pandemic, they demonstrated poise, confidence, and leadership in their first store and I am thrilled they are expanding their footprint into Winter Park,” says Hounds Town CEO Jackie Bondanza. “Our top performers opening second and third locations helps us achieve our ten-year target that every dog in the country has access to a Hounds Town.”

Supervised by a well-trained staff, dogs are able to play all-day, providing both physical and mental stimulation, with a group of dogs that match their size and temperament for safe and fun socialization— guaranteeing a Hounds Town Hangover when pets go home.
