Dog Care Franchise Scenthound Makes Entrance to Las Vegas
Nation’s first wellness-focused dog grooming franchise to open first location in Rhodes Ranch
April 28, 2021 // Franchising.com // Rhodes Ranch, NV - Scenthound is starting its westward expansion to bring dog wellness and grooming services to Nevada. On a mission to keep dogs clean and healthy, this first-of-its-kind dog grooming franchise is announcing their Rhodes Ranch location opening April 19.
Scenthound offers an easy and affordable way for dog parents to get the preventative care their pups need to stay not only clean, but healthy. Embedded in the name, Scenthound focuses on the five core areas of maintenance: Skin, Coat, Ears, Nails and Teeth. Their Scent Techs are fully trained to give dogs of all breeds the routine care they need - and the various memberships allow dog parents to choose an option that works for their budget and schedule, and gives them the peace of mind that their dog’s health is on track.
Prior to joining Scenthound, Matt Piccirillo graduated from Albany Law School in upstate New York and recently worked at a public relations firm in Los Angeles. He will be managing the stores day to day operations in Las Vegas. His father, Fred has decades of extensive experience in the corporate world as a financial, operations and audit executive in the New York City area, currently serving as SVP Chief Accounting Officer. The father-son duo was looking for a way to give back and because of their love for animals knew keeping the dogs in their community healthy was the perfect fit.
“I grew up with dogs and know how important they are,” said Matt Piccirillo. “After getting to know Scenthound’s mission, it became very clear to us that we wanted to expand the brand to the Las Vegas area. The services Scenthound provides help dogs stay clean and healthy, preventing long-term issues down the road. Our community considers pets to be part of the family and we look forward to providing a service that helps people love and connect with their dogs every day.”
Scenthound was founded in 2015 after CEO Tim Vogel spent more than 10 years running both a mobile grooming business and local grooming Scenters, and seeing first-hand the shortcomings within a booming pet industry and the lack of education surrounding dog care. Vogel began a mission to give dogs and their owners a fast, easy, and affordable solution that not only keeps them clean and looking great but maintains their overall health and wellness.
“The leadership at Scenthound has stood by us and helped us in this new venture and their passion for the brand is clear,” said Fred Piccirillo. "As we start to open our locations in Nevada, we are confident that the community will embrace the brand."
