© Des Moines Dog House 2011   The story behind the Dog House... Tami LaFreniere is the “H.D.I.C” (Head Dawg In Charge) of the Dog House. After working 15 years in the mental health industry, she felt like it was time to move on to something different. When the Dog House went up for sale, she had a vision and felt it was time to take a leap of faith and go into business for herself. On December 30, 2005 that vision became a reality when Tami became the official owner of the Des Moines Dog House. After making a few changes and putting her own personality into the Dog House, it was open for business. As soon as you step through the door and take a look around, you can’t help but notice Tami’s love for our hometown heroes, the Seattle Seahawks, or her fun, quirky sense of humor everywhere you look. Not only does she serve the best dogs in Des Moines, but she also brings a wonderful sense of small town comaradarie and friendship with her. If the Seahawks are playing, rest assured she’ll be watching them on the tv. Don’t be surprised about her contagious passion and love for her team...just grab a dog and a beer and root for them (or against them...*GASP*) with her! Site Design by Sassy Designs
