Meet Hadi Harake of The Dog House

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hadi Harake.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
We are dog lovers and business-minded. We mixed our dog experience with our education and came up with the perfect recipe. After extensive planning, research and education, The Dog House was established in August 2015. During this time, we based our values off of the services and characteristics from our experience in the industry: fun yet safe, playful yet disciplined.

We moved back home from overseas to start our dream business. We have been working with dogs for years and know how to care for our four-legged and two-legged clients, we provide training, boarding, daycare and grooming.

Has it been a smooth road?
Starting a new business is always risky. We planned really well and studied the market. While our sales have improved over the months, we still went through a few rough patches along the way. Our ability to plan and forecast has helped us tremendously. Today, The Dog House is successful and is very thankful for the repeat business we have generated.

So, let’s switch gears a bit and go into The Dog House story. Tell us more about the business.
We are a full-service dog training, boarding, grooming and daycare facility. The Dog House is ideal for dog owners who understand that their dog requires socialization, exercise and activities to break up their week, just like us! Whether a dog is a high energy, playful pup, a senior citizen who enjoys the affection and attention of humans, or anywhere in between, The Dog House is a tail wagging, positive and happy environment for all dogs to spend their day while our clients are working or traveling.

We are proud of how successful The Dog House has become in such a short amount of time.

Starting a business from nothing and personally contributing to every aspect of it, then seeing it grow, is a huge achievement. We feel blessed by this.

Some things that set us apart from other facilities like ours are:

-Custom-made suites with tempered glass doors and spill-proof bowls
-Expert, rigorous dog training
-Friendly, experienced staff
-Free webcam access
-Free playtime in our supervised areas
-Free 3 walks everyday

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We see our industry continuing to grow and flourish as it has been doing for the last 20 or so years. We anticipate opening additional branches in the near future, as we are close to reaching our full capacity in our current location.
