Our Story

Hoadin is a brand of dog accessories that combines comfort and style with eco-friendly materials. We are driven by the mission to support and promote dog rescue and adoption.  How did we get started? Well, our story began with a rude awakening. Ignorance is bliss, as they say, but it is also detrimental to those who deserve and need help. If I hadn't had a huge eye opening experience, I would have never known of the enormous plight of homeless dogs in our backyards and around the world.

I was considering adopting a dog and I decided to check out Petfinder to see who needed a home.  After several HOURS of reviewing profile after profile, I saw no end in sight to the pages I still hadn't viewed. 

Heartbroken, I knew I wanted and needed to help.  I started by adopting Clarence and Dixie (and later came Brody), but couldn't stop there.  I spent every free hour designing and developing our beautiful, eco-friendly products and a business model that would make a difference in the lives of dogs in need. With every purchase, Hoadin donates to one of our dog rescue partners. Even our name expresses our commitment. Hoadin is an acronym for Help Out A Dog In Need.

Collars   
When measuring the length around dog's neck, make sure it is loose enough to be comfortable (at least 2 finger widths between neck and collar), but not too loose to be pulled over his or her head.  Round up to the closest 1/2 inch.
