The Lazy Dog Cookie Co.
Americans love their pets. In 2016, the American Pet Products Association (APPA) reported that 68 percent of households owned a pet, which the report noted was “the highest level ever reported.” It equates to about 90 million dogs and 94 million cats. Naturally, the pet industry is booming. There have never been so many options when it comes to food, grooming products, and toys. But quality matters. That’s why we’ve taken extra care to stock brands we can get behind. Just like you, we’re all about eco-friendly materials, non-GMO ingredients for meals and snacks, and shampoos that smell like essential oils, not chemicals.
The History of Lazy Dog Cookie Co.
In 2001, Amy Augustine decided to combine her love of dogs with a home-cooked recipe, and that was the beginning of Lazy Dog Cookie Co. Augustine tested her treats on the pets of friends and co-workers, and eventually applied for space at a farmers market in York, Pa. Getting up before dawn wasn’t her favorite part of the endeavor, but seeing customers embracing her products gave her the boost she needed to exhibit at a pet trade show in 2004 and begin working on the brand full-time.
Lazy Dog Cookie Co. Company Mission
Dogs might spend most of their days sleeping, but when they’re wide awake, pets need good nutrition to help them stay healthy year after year. Lazy Dog Cookie Co. knows how much you care about your canine companion and uses high-quality ingredients to make treats your dog won’t be able to resist. The brand also supports pet-focused organizations like Dogs for Deployment, one of the largest networks of volunteer boarding homes and pet-related financial aid for military families.
Benefits of Lazy Dog Cookie Co.
Lazy Dog Cookie Co.’s recipes are always free from wheat, corn, soy, meat byproducts, fillers, or preservatives. Essentially, nothing artificial will be heading into your dog’s tummy. And although dogs might not be able to speak, their owners have plenty to say about Lazy Dog’s products.
- Rebecca from Florida says her dogs recognize the bag now and respond when she asks if they want a cookie. “They absolutely love these and I love the fact that they’re human grade, made in the U.S., and that the brand donates to charity.”
- Carol from Indiana says she picks up the birthday “cake” yearly for her dog’s celebration. “I like that it comes in slices so you can space out the servings.”
