From a kitchen oven.....
In 2001, Amy decided to combine her love for dogs and a simple recipe to create The Lazy Dog Cookie Co. First she gave her freshly baked peanut butter treats to friends and co-workers for their dogs. The response was amazing and they wanted more. After she made a few more batches for them she decided to take up shop at local farmers market in York, Pennsylvania. She was a little skeptical at first but the customers embraced her treats and they kept coming back for more. Before she knew it she was doing weekly festivals, more farmers markets and even got into a few local grocers and pet stores.
So in 2004, she decided along with her husband Keith to exhibit at a large pet product industry tradeshow in Chicago, again the response was amazing. This was when they realized what her little business could become. She worked for a few more years and grew the business on her own until one day, Keith decided to leave his career and work with Amy full-time. They went ahead with their plan and after one year, they moved out of the home kitchen and into their first real production facility in Ballston Spa, New York. They needed help as the business started to grow and coincidentally they were introduced to the Saratoga Bridges. This organization was the area’s premier community resource for people with disabilities. They loved this idea and started sending small projects to their workshop, but had no idea how this relationship would develop. After a couple of years they decided they wanted to do more for their new found friends and asked if the organization would allow the group and a supervisor to work at Lazy Dog part-time. This is something they had never done. It took a few months of discussion, but it finally worked out and they started a whole new endeavor with Saratoga Bridges. They've had the group coming twice a week since and Amy and Keith feel that they truly would not have been able to accomplish their growth without them . More importantly, they have seen the individuals in the group flourish and have a real sense of pride about their work. ......and the rest is history!
Oh, and did we mention how much they LOVE dogs and for that matter all animals?
