Lazy Dog Loungers® was inspired by our dog, Sebastian's, love of the water and swimming.  He would stay in the water for hours as we hung out at our dock or on our boat.

After ripping up countless floats and realizing our friends were having the same problems, we decided it was time to find a float designed specifically for dogs. Sebastian had a few different ones and our friend, Julie, tried to repair the floats Sebastian ripped, but it soon became clear that we needed to design a dog raft that was stable, durable and kept him in the water while he rested. 

Sebastian loved it.  He could swim, play water fetch and then climb on his own raft and rest. Because our raft is semi-submersible it kept him cool while he rested. Keeping the water circulating on the raft was key for hot dogs on the lake! 

Shortly after making rafts for our friends' dogs, we decided it was time to share our story and our unique dog floats with other dog lovers. And so, Lazy Dog Loungers® was founded.  

For three years Lazy Dog Loungers® was run by four friends and distributed through various marinas and stores in Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia. In 2018, we met the owner of Better Options Company and realized we'd found someone who shared our passion for dogs and for American manufacturing. 

​Our patented Lazy Dog Loungers® are now manufactured in Cornelia, Georgia and available for purchase nationwide.
