As the rate of technological expansion has increased and we've began to transcend barriers previously thought to be impassable, a great many achievements have been made.

We’ve mapped the solar system and the deepest oceans, we discovered our own humble origins and cloned successfully. We built the hadron collider. We’ve found the Higgs Boson and defeated smallpox.

And now, at long last, we’ve done it, We’ve created a sun lounger for dogs.

Dogs are people too.

Or it’s starting to feel that way. Over the years, we’ve endeavoured to tilt the behavior of our four-legged counterparts invariably towards ourselves.

“Are actually suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, and will help your pets maintain their body temperature."

People seem to like it!

For a dog product, the sun lounger has had a lot of online attention, racking up over 1000 comments.

“Seem Fab"

One satisfied customer from the UK wrote, "£15 from B&M. Friends have paid £69 for beds just like these.. and so far they seem fab."

Do we pamper our dogs too much?

They are dogs after all. It’s hard to know whether dogs are capable of appreciating stuff like ice cream and rain-coats...

"Deffo a bargain to keep their bones off the hard floors."

We don’t think dogs mind hard floors. They’re probably indifferent to them... But the doggy sunbeds are too cute to resist!
