Sadie Hatela 5/15/2009 - 10/20/2021

Retired Product Research & Development


Sadie was born in 2009 and is a purebred Shih-Tzu. She had no clue she was a dog. She acted like she owned the place and ran the house. She kept Adam's children in line everyday. In 2013, Sadie was stung by a swarm of hornets resulting in her needing a blood transfusion. She was hospitalized for a week. Adam is shown laying with her the day she came home from the hospital, in the photo below. She pulled through and lived a wonderful life providing joy and happiness to our family. She ultimately passed away from heart failure and is greatly missed. Every product Adam sells has been thoroughly tested and approved by Sadie. Adam will not sell anyone a product or service that he would not have allowed Sadie to use.

"Underground fencing is an investment that is well worth the money but it is only as good as the person who stands behind it."

Savannah Hatela

Current Product Research & Development


Savannah was born 10/04/2021 and is a purebred AKC Shih-Tzu. After the passing of our beloved Sadie Girl, our home had a very empty feeling. Our family was so excited to find Savannah while we were on vacation in Savannah Georgia...…hence the name! She has certainly filled that empty void and is adjusting well to her new home!
