The Dog Den
Offering fun for dogs and classes for their owners, The Dog Den is a day care and training center for dogs in the Madison area. Staff members provide a safe, supervised and structured environment for dogs as young as eight weeks.

The Dog Den is committed to implementing ecologically responsible business practices. One strategy is buying green power for its facility from MGE.

"Green Power Tomorrow is a great way, and an easy way, to help improve our carbon footprint," said Laura Schorrak, owner. "It makes a lot of sense to choose electricity that is produced from clean sources like wind and solar."

The Dog Den also reuses materials whenever possible. This includes paper and dog crates, collars and leashes. In addition, the business chose an online scheduling system which cuts down on paper consumption.

"Recycling goes hand in hand with reusing," Schorrak said. "We recycle plastic bottles, paper and pet supplies too."

The Dog Den is a drop-off site for the Dane County Humane Society. People can bring their unwanted or lightly used pet items to the donation bin at The Dog Den.

"We want to make it easy for others to help as well," Schorrak said. "Having a donation bin on site makes it convenient."
