Hello, I'm Thomas, founder and managing director of DOGANDLIVING GmbH. On this page I would like to tell you something about DOGANDLIVING, the idea and the people behind it. Do you feel like?
When our family got animals for the first time in 2016 thanks to the young Australian Shepherd "Juno", we set ourselves the goal of making our home as comfortable as possible for him. Our new family member should lack nothing with us.
This was followed by extensive research on the subject of initial dog equipment. After the first purchases, we unfortunately noticed that the market was large and full of promising offers, but the many quality promises did not always correspond to the truth. As new dog owners, it was difficult for us to make the right purchases in the huge sea of products.
A short time later we decided to produce our first own dog bowls out of concrete. With this idea, we were primarily motivated by our love for Juno and the desire to enrich the market with stable, high-quality products. In the same year we founded the BETONFACTORY for this purpose, which grew into our heart project within a very short time. We put all our passion, time and love into the manufacture and design of our own dog bowls and dedicated ourselves diligently to this activity for over two years.
The creation of DOGANDLIVING
It was only in 2018 that we expanded our area of responsibility and consequently founded DOGANDLIVING. In this shop we bring together products from various national and international manufacturers whose quality can assert itself especially against that of the competition. When making the selection, we mainly refer to our own knowledge and experience that we have accumulated over the years. In our opinion, a product not only has to have a high level of functionality, it also has to be maintained for many years thanks to high-quality, stable materials and ideally also have an appealing look.
In the meantime, our range consists of products from over twenty established manufacturers such as Cloud7 , Labbvenn and MiaCara together.
Although we know and use the advantages of online shops, we also want to get in direct contact with our customers. That is why we can be reached three times a week in our dog shop in Augsburg and look forward to giving you personal advice, getting to know other people and dogs and having interesting conversations over coffee or another drink. Individual appointments can also be made by email outside of the regular opening times. We also offer home visits in the vicinity of Augsburg.
The development from 2018 to today
In 2018 we decided to use BETONFACTORY and DOGANDLIVING to merge. To do this, we incorporated our concrete dog bowls into the range of our shop.
The following year the re-launch of our revised website dogandliving.de followed. During the redesign, our focus was on a clearer user interface and a more attractive design. If you still have questions or comments, you are cordially invited to contact us by e-mail or personally in the shop. The concerns of every customer are important to us and we are always happy to solve problems and take part in interesting conversations.
Within three years, DOGANDLIVING has managed to grow into one of the leading online shops for high-quality dog supplies. We owe this success not only to the hard-working brands, whose great products complete our range, but also to our dog Juno, who sparked our passion for dog supplies in the first place.
I am supported in my daily work by a great team and in particular my wife Jasmina, whom I would like to thank for the great support.
I hope we were able to give you a little insight into our DOGANDLIVING world. If you have any further questions about us, you can contact us personally at any time.
Your Thomas with Jasmina and Juno
