Our Story

How did we get started? Well, our story began with a rude awakening.

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. 

I was floored. I couldn’t believe it was really that bad. It wasn’t just a handful of pups found as strays who found their way to a shelter. The more I read about homeless dogs, the more heartbroken I became, and it created a spark. I started by adopting Dixie and then came Clarence. (Brody joined us in 2018.) That spark then turned into a driving fire and I decidedI wanted my everyday to be about helping make a difference.

Cut to today, where every working hour goes into designing and developing our beautiful, eco-friendly dog gear and fulfilling a mission to support dog rescue and adoption. With every purchase, Hoadin donates to a non-profit partner supporting dogs in need. 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.
