Our Story

OUR BEGINNING

The Lounging Hound was established in 2015 from a kitchen table observed by curious rescue greyhounds.  The idea was to create a range of products which were stylish, comfortable, durable and purposeful.  Combining innovative design and attention to detail with luxurious, yet practical fabrics, our products are made to be loved and to last.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

To offer our customers a range of design focussed, superior quality products with all the practicality demanded by pets, yet so impeccably stylish and luxurious that owners will love to have them in their homes as well. Sustainability, longevity and preserving our heritage are values at the very heart of our business.

COST vs QUALITY

We don’t believe customers should have to choose between quality and cost. We offer high quality products at a sensitive price which means everyone is paid a proper wage for producing a product designed to last. We work with ethical businesses to ensure that everyone involved in our design and manufacture process is treated fairly.

MADE IN THE UK

All our products are designed and produced in the UK, our fabrics sourced from the UK and our orders shipped from the UK.  We believe strongly in supporting UK trade and seek to partner with small and medium sized independent businesses.  Just like us, they pride themselves on their quality, attention to detail and customer satisfaction.

OUR PHOTOGRAPHY

We are passionate about our photography and are fortunate enough to work with professional photographer Kerry Jordan.  Kerry brings our designs to life with her gorgeous photography and ensures that our products are fully and accurately represented on screen, so that our customers can be sure that what they receive looks exactly the same as the image on our website.

TRIED & TESTED

All our products go through a rigorous testing process led by our two chief greyhounds Katie and Swift, and our young upstarts Stan the Wheaten Terrier and Murphy the Labrador. Katie and Swift spend most of their time lying on sofas and beds while Stan and Murphy are experts at chewing and clawing. Between them, they ensure each product is thoroughly tested for every kind of user!
