    David Engel has always had a passion for animals and is thrilled to be dedicating his career to making pets cozy, comfortable and happy. With an extensive background in sales, and equally extensive love for animals, David feels like he is finally pursuing his life’s calling. In July of 2014, after studying the success and rapid growth of the pet industry, he founded CozyCuddlerz. A self-described “people person”, David finds fulfillment in being able to combine his love for pets, and his love for people in one fruitful endeavor.

     

    Tapping into a growing market that centers around families was a natural progression for David, who has spent much of his life traveling and learning about new cultures and ways of life. The give and take of both learning lessons from people he meets and trying to inspire those around him has grown his ability to create lasting and meaningful products for all difference types of homes. David doesn’t just want to create dog beds; he wants to help create memories of love and laughter in the home of his customers.

     

    He approaches his creations as works of art. In order to combine durability, quality, and attractiveness, one has to be able to strip away the mundane layers of everyday life and access their innermost selves. Whether it’s jewelry, oil paintings, or pet beds, art is about finding hidden meanings and hidden uses in everyday things. CozyCuddlerz hopes that as well as creating a restful place for your pet, the addition of an aesthetically pleasing pet bed will elevate the overall look and purpose of a room.

     

    When he’s not running CozyCuddlerz, David is a devoted husband and new father to a beautiful little girl. He and his wife are enjoying every moment of their new journey, and feel blessed to be able to share that journey with his family, who live nearby. His other hobbies include spending time with friends and making music. David is a devout member of the Jewish faith and finds motivation and balance everyday through prayer, meditation, and studying the Kabbalah. Above all, he loves animals and believes they are truly a gift to mankind. In David’s words, “The love that they offer to us all is real and sincere. They can brighten anyone's day and light up a room. They have lifted spirits of many and helped individuals grow in many aspects of their life. Pets are the best.”
