Ben Mazer's three dogs - Peaches, 8, Challah, 8, and Mitzi, 7 - are living their best lives thanks to a living room he created for them in his Atlanta home.

The ER doctor first posted a TikTok video of the room in August, and has since shared more clips showing off the various pieces of furniture the three miniature dachshunds get to enjoy.

Each one of the dogs has their very own couch to lounge on, which Mazer told Insider he got on Wayfair.

As a doctor with long hours, Mazer told Insider he wanted to use a spare bedroom he had to enclose the dogs so they wouldn't run around and ruin the furniture in the rest of the house.

"Initially, I saw just the dog couches and thought they would be perfect for them," he said. "I remember reading somewhere that dogs can only see blue and yellow, so I got them a blue and yellow couch, and then a gray one to match the one in my living room."

Besides the couches, the room is also decorated with a mini coffee table, a 24-inch television, bookshelves, side tables, lamps, and artwork. Mazer told Insider he repurposed some things to use as furniture in the room for his dogs.

For example, one of the side tables is actually a child's organizer that he bought at HomeGoods. He then sanded, repainted, and added wooden legs to it. The other side table is a dessert stand, while the coffee table is just a large salad bowl with a plate on top.

Mazer only decided to turn the space into a full living room for his dogs after purchasing the couches and the TV.

"The couches look very retro, so I just started adding stuff I had around the house to make it look more put together," he said." After I posted the first TikTok video and it got some attention, I made some changes, like getting the artwork to put at their height."

Mazer told Insider the dogs like to hang out in the room even when he's home.

Mazer said it took about a month to put the entire living room together. He estimates he spent about $600, as he shopped for deals at Wayfair, HomeGoods, Ross, and Target.

"I like it all, but just the couches facing each other and the fact that they actually sit there with one another and just chill is great," he said.

One of the standout items in the room has to be the bar cart, which Mazer said is actually a bathroom organizer that he spray-painted gold. He also added mini liquor bottles, shot glasses, and an ice bucket made out of a metal cotton-ball holder.

Since sharing his first video of the living room on TikTok, some of Mazer's clips have gotten up to 8 million views, which he said was totally unexpected. Mazer told Insider that although he doesn't have plans to change the living room around anytime soon, he does plan on continuing to make videos.

"People have mentioned adding a mini fireplace or a chandelier, so there are some things to come," he said.

When the dogs aren't hanging out in their own living room or Mazer's human-sized one, he said the dogs sleep in the bed with him.

"They have a king-sized bed that I'm lucky enough to be allowed to sleep in sometimes," he said.
