                                        THE LAPDOGG STORY

The LapDogg was born one night a few years back with my young son. During a hot day in June the power went out in the neighborhood and my young son, who is a basketball enthusiast, and I was hell bent on watching a NBA playoff game. While the power was out I still had my smart phone available to watch the game. As the game trickled into the second half my arm began to grow weary of holding the phone upright so my son and I could comfortably relax and watch the game. As I struggled to find yet another comfortable position to hold my phone I thought to myself........."there has to be something out there on the market that would solve this problem". To my surprise……there was NOTHING!!!!!!!! What I found was either desk mounted clip-ons or some ridiculous harness or strap-on contraption. So my intention was to design something that was actually mobile as the mobile phone was intended.  I sounds silly but the word mobile is in the name!!!!!

With that being said, I give you The LapDogg. The LapDogg serves as an extra hand that will assist and aid the user in holding the phone, light weight tablet, handheld gaming device, or any portable mobile device. So whether you’re at home, at the office, in your car, or on a plane…….the LapDogg is your perfect companion. For those occasions when you need to free up both hands or just those occasions when you are utilizing your mobile device for extended usage.

As mentioned, The LapDogg is great for personal use but it is ideal for commercial use as well. Perhaps you work in a factory, warehouse, in a distribution center where your job is to stock shelves while tracking inventory on a mobile device, or you work in a restaurant and your establishment uses handheld devices for placing orders while needing to free up your hands to serve or clear tables.......……the possible applications are just endless!!!!!!!!!!

So here is where I ask for your help in bringing The LapDogg to the market. We are at the point where we’re ready to manufacture this wonderful product but we need a little help getting there. So we encourage you to pick up a LapDogg for yourself or family or friend.......

You won't be disappointed.....

Very Sincerely,

Don B

Risks and challenges

Of course there's always a risk in launching new products but we feel that we have a great team in place. With over 40+ years of combined experience in the mobile phone industry and marketing products for industry giants like AT&T, Sprint, Motorola, Pepsi, Lowes, and Microsoft, we feel that we have what it takes to bring The LapDogg to the masses. With that being said, the good news is is that most of the hard part is past us. All of the development, design, and testing is complete and we're ready to have The LapDogg manufactured. As mentioned previously, all of the individual manufacturers have been secured and are waiting for the OK to produce the molds and tooling.
We feel that with adequate exposure, as time has proven, potential customers are excited and thrilled with what The LapDogg offers and the benefits that can be achieved, both as a recreational mobile device accessory and for commercial use as well.
