FloBeds Builds World’s Largest Dog Bed

 

Now that’s a big dog bed!

FloBeds, pioneers in the eco-friendly mattress industry, and a market leader in organic mattresses, will set the Guinness World Record Labor Day Weekend, for the Largest Dog Bed.  The run at the record will take place during Paul Bunyan Days, Fort Bragg’s festival that honors their timber history, the larger-than-life logger, his blue ox, and now Spot, his reversible dog.

Joan, the ‘magic fingers’ behind the big dog bed

FloBeds will make the record-setting dog bed of the same all-natural materials they use in their organic mattresses. That means it will not only be the world’s biggest dog bed, it will also be the most comfortable and most eco-friendly.

A mini dog bed model – wonder if it’s the world’s smallest dog bed?

The dog bed will be 7 ft by 9 ft – that’s bigger than a king size mattress, bigger than the largest FloBed mattress – and ten times bigger than a large-breed dog bed.  The cover will be organic cotton, the pad will be Talalay latex customized for different firmness preferences, just like the beds they make for people.   The dog bed will be built at FloBeds, presented at 6:45 during the 1st Friday kick-off party on Friday Sept 3rd, then moved to the Ugly Dog Contest on Saturday.

The record attempts will be documented with pictures and videos, and certified by the City’s Mayor Doug Hammerstrom in accordance with guidelines provided by the Guinness Book of World Records.

FloBeds  invites staff, friends and family to the reveal; they’re also inviting people who sleep on a FloBeds mattress to bring their dogs and join them for the record setting events.

Asked why he’s building the world’s biggest dog bed, Dave Turner – the man behind FloBeds – explained, “We think it’s the perfect world record for FloBeds and our hometown. We’ve been celebrating a larger-than life logger for more than 70 years, and we were just named #5 on Dog Fancy Magazine’s list of best dog towns in the country.  What makes more sense than setting the record for a really big dog bed?”

They Like Our Pillows Too

It seems people like our all natural Twice Fluffed Dream Pillows as much as our all natural mattresses. Recently Latex Mattress Reviews recommended them and commented on their great price.

According to Sleep Like the Dead, in an on-line review about customer satisfaction with latex pillows, 88% of actual owners included in their research are satisfied with their latex pillow. They say it’s a good compromise between soft and firm/supportive; holds shape; durable; effective at pain relief; good air flow; won’t clump, shift or develop hollow spots.
Latex pillows have medium firmness, say owners overall. Owners typically describe them as soft to the touch, yet supportive and as being not too soft or too firm. Specifically, 87% of owners say that the firmness is just right, 10% too soft, and 3% too firm.

The vast majority of owners included in their research (91%) said that the pillows provide acceptable to excellent support. They usually commented that the pillow is “springy” and instantly adjust to the movements of the head and neck. Owners did not report any need to fluff or try to return the pillow to its proper loft.

In addition, owners typically said that the product does not go flat and that it holds its shape throughout the night. Those who did not like the support of the latex pillow often said it was because the pillow was too thin or too soft; those people need a Twice Fluffed Dream Pillow.
