Dog Haus Owner
“It’s a dog’s world. We’re just here to open the gates.”
Angie and Jake Schuldies opened The Dog Haus Dog Daycare LLC in November 2005.
Opening a daycare had been a dream for us for over a year, and we are beside ourselves thinking of our good luck of being able to make this dream come true.
After taking our dogs to a wonderful daycare in Arizona for a year, we moved to Wisconsin to be near family and to open this business. Jake worked at The Dog Haus for several years while also studying to achieve his Masters degree in Social Work and is now working in his field of study, only getting to pop into The Dog Haus occasionally.
We both have been owned by dogs and cats throughout most of our lives. After all, we don’t really own them, they own us, right?! Angie volunteered with two rescue groups in Arizona, caring for and walking dogs waiting at a kennel to be adopted. Angie also worked at a doggie daycare and a kennel for a year before opening The Dog Haus, and is certified by the American Red Cross in Pet First Aid. Jake opened our loving home to several foster dogs, some that stayed only briefly, and some that required extra time and attention.
We are wrapped around the paws of our two dogs – Elwood and Packer. Packer is an 13 year old pure-bred Miniature Pinscher that we adopted from a Miniature Pinscher rescue in Arizona after his owner dropped him off there because he didn’t want him sleeping in his bed anymore and of course he wouldn’t stop. So now he snuggles under the covers with us every night, and we couldn’t be happier. Elwood is a 10 year old Shepherd/Lab/Husky mix that we adopted from The Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL), a rescue group that saves dogs on the euthanasia list at the local pound and gives them a temporary home until they are adopted. Elwood had been at AAWL for over a month when we found him, and we don’t have a lot of details about his past except that he did spend some time living on the street. He is our Velcro dog – always wanting to be right by us and get lots of love and attention, and that’s okay by us.
We also now have a two-legged child named Westley! You can follow Wes’ journey through a cancer diagnosis at just 7 months old here: http://wesiskickingcancer.wordpress.com/
In August 2012, The Dog Haus Dog Daycare opened a second location on Johnson St and called it DHU (Dog Haus University). After getting one year under it’s belt, DHU was separated from The Dog Haus and became it’s own separate entity.
