Scenthound, the nation’s first and only wellness-focused dog care franchise, offers membership-based services for affordable and accessible routine dog care. As the fastest-growing pet franchise in the nation, the brand’s services are elevated through the integration of innovative technology, including its proprietary S.C.E.N.T. Check™ (Skin, Coat, Earns, Nails, and Teeth), an assessment of each dog’s external health following every ‘Scenter’ visit.


The concept is experiencing explosive growth fueled by the brand’s revolutionary approach to routine dog care and a proven business model. Scenthound recently announced 15 new units (or “Scenters”) in development throughout Texas, bringing the innovative pet health and wellness brand to major markets including Austin, Dallas, and Houston. Scenthound’s newest franchisees include entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds, from multi-unit/multi-brand operators to veterans.


David and Michelle Smith, a husband-and-wife duo and multi-unit operators of three Massage Envy franchises, will open 10 locations throughout the Dallas area by 2025. Marc Spieler and Matt Woolsey, a serial entrepreneur and a U.S. Marine Corps veteran respectively, will open three locations in the Houston area. Additionally, Larry Maddalena, a multi-unit operator of 11 The Joint Chiropractic franchises, and his partner Adam Bordes will open two locations in Austin.
