Setting Records

Happy Friday! Here is our fun fact for this Friday:

FloBeds Largest Dog Bed
In 2010 FloBeds made a record-setting dog bed of the same all-natural materials we use in our organic mattresses. That means it was not only the world’s biggest dog bed, but the most comfortable and most eco-friendly!

Absurdly Big Dog Bed and Ones ‘Just Right’

Local dignitaries prove bed is more than 7 x 9 feet!

Did you hear we built a REALLY big dog bed and sent pictures and documentation to Guinness to claim the world’s record for the Largest Dog Bed? It was 7 by 9 ft, bigger than any of our people beds, and made of the same all natural components. Maybe you heard that we took the bed to the Paul Bunyan Days Ugly Dog Contest to see how many dogs we could pile onto it?  The answer was 25, 25 dogs of all sizes and shapes shared the bed without mishap. Actually, I did hear from Hairy Putter, Director of Barketing for Mendocino County, that he was momentarily buried under a rather big brute, but no real harm done.

25 Dogs Pile onto Bed

The logical question of course was how about one for my dog? People commented their dog has a FloBed – theirs! But folks have been asking if we’d make him or her one of their own.

So, drum roll please…. introducing FloBeds’ Dog Beds! They come in small, medium and large, just like your dogs. They’re all natural, just like your FloBeds bed, and like our people beds, they’re great for people – I mean dogs – that wake up stiff  and sore.

We have two styles, one with just the bed, another that includes bolsters on three sides. A small is 24 x 35 inches, $132 or $225; medium is 30 x 40, $142 or $240, and a large breed bed is 36 x 48, $179 or $308 with bolsters.

But, because you’re among the first to order, you save 25% on our introductory Paul Bunyan Sale. Click HERE to find out more, see the pictures and video, or place your dog bed order.

Life just got a little sweeter and a lot more comfortable for your four-legged friends!

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?”
