Puppy of the Month

What can we say, we love pizza, salad, craft beer, the lakes in Madison, a good bike path, and dogs, among other things. That list is in no particular order, but dogs are probably close to the top.

A big part of the culture here at Ian's is being involved in the local community, and trying to give back to our community whenever possible. So when we started making our own Puppy Chow (yes, it's called Puppy Chow but it's human food) we reached out to the Dane County Humane Society to see how we could lend a hand!

What we came up with was an amazing program to try to help out some amazing animals in need of forever homes. Each month we receive the name and information of a puppy in need of adoption from the Dane County Humane Society's animal shelter. We display this information near our Puppy Chow in-store and for every bag of Puppy Chow that is purchased that month, we donate a portion of those sales to helping find that dog a home.

Through this great program we've proudly helped numerous Dane County  dogs find the loving homes they deserve. If you'd like to find out more information about how you can help out the DCHS, or are looking for any resources about adopting a dog, please visit their website at giveshelter.org or stop by their main shelter at 5132 Voges Road. We're happy to have such a great partner in the Madison area who does so much for these great future pets.


March Puppy of the Month!

Dobby is all heart – which is a lot of heart, because he is a very big dog!

Dobby has been misunderstood because of his size. Sure, he’s big - but really, he is a BIG dog. Some of the things he can do as a big dog include reaching counter tops with great ease. It is a fine skill of his, until he may start eating something you may have been having a hankering for. As a young guy, Dobby needs someone to teach him the ropes. It’s only fair. Once he’s got it down, he will be the most excellent dog, and a fine gentleman. It should be easy to teach him, as he is very treat motivated and he aims to please. For a big guy, and still growing, Dobby is wonderfully snuggly. He also loves to play. It’s his favorite thing to do!

Come meet friendly Dobby, who promises to be your next best canine friend!
