My giveaway sponsor is Obasan

I will be the first to admit that my pup is spoiled rotten. She eats some of the best food on the market which is usually topped with real meat, eggs, or whatever else we are eating for dinner. She sleeps on our bed at night and has an entire basket full of toys to keep her out of trouble. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much! I love her but her nickname is ‘Naughty’ for a reason! One of her favorite naughty pastimes is attempting to destroy her dog bed that we keep in the family room. She drags it around the house, eats the stuffing, and in general just drives me NUTS! So, when I got the chance to work with Obasan on a review of their organic pet beds, I was thrilled! She had just destroyed yet another one and I felt bad making her sleep on the hard ground! If you have never heard of Obasan, they are actually an organic mattress company that also makes pillows, pet beds and comforters as well. Here is some information about them from their website:

Designing and crafting our complete line of organic bedding and accessories including: pillows, comforters, mattress protectors and organic mattresses begins with organically grown and harvested pure cotton. Chemical-free and certified to the highest standards by recognized international bodies, our natural materials allow you to rest and rejuvenate.
Cotton is an extremely pesticide heavy crop, meaning that the cotton in your mattresses may have a very high pesticide residue on it. Considering how much time you spend sleeping, this is a pretty big concern! In fact, if all the cotton in the world were grown organically, the use of insecticides would be reduced by 25 percent! The wool that is used in the Obasan products  is processed without chemicals, dyes, or oils, and contains no residues from processing. Obasan uses no defoliants, herbicides, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers on their cotton and no synthetic chemicals are used in harvesting or manufacturing.
Obasan pet beds  are the newest addition to their product line. They use recycled organic cotton and wool and shred the fibers to create a nice comfy cushion for your dogs & cats. They come with a removable organic cotton cover for easy washing. You can choose from brown or light tan. Here is a summary of the information about these pet beds:
  • 100% Organic Cotton Canvas Cover
  • 100% Organic Cotton and Wool fillings
  • Will keep your pet warm and dry as they rest
  • Removable Cover for easy cleaning in cold water
  • Shredded Organic Cotton and Wool core is completely recycled
  • Dust mite repellent and breathable. Air-out every month in direct sunlight.
So, my opinion:  Honestly, I love this dog bed for so many reasons! (and, as you can see in the picture, Teyla (AKA Naughty) loves it too! This is a heavy, very good sized pet bed that comes in 4 different sizes. I chose the large which is 34″x44″. For my 50 pound shepherd this is perfect for her to be able to stretch out on! Because it is nice and heavy she cannot drag it around the house like a rag doll (oh, she TRIED but gave up quickly!)  and I can vacuum it without it getting sucked up by the vacuum attachment. I also love that it has a removable cover, which makes washing it a breeze!
Overall, an awesome pet bed that will last a long time! I chose the brown since I have a dark colored dog but if you have a white dog, you may want to try the light tan so the hair is hidden a little bit better.
WIN IT!
Want to win an organic Obasan pet bed for yourself? You get to choose which size and color you would like if you win! This is a Rafflecopter giveaway. If you don’t see the Rafflecopter widget, click on the READ MORE text below for the entry form!

  25. Human pillow – sure:

    For the best in health, try our Saguenay pillows. Covered in 100% organic cotton knit and filled with pure wool or natural rubber, these pillows will maintain their shape. Saguenay pillows come with removeable, washable covers. Most are available in different lofts to accommodate your personal needs.

    Obasan natural rubber forms the central core of the Obasan series. This natural rubber core is inherently anti-microbial meaning mildew, mold, bacteria and dust mites simply cannot exist.

  37. Apparently we get a total of two hours of Rem sleep a night, in bursts and it usually begins about ninety minutes after falling asleep….. This might be why I don’t know what REM sleep is, my 10 month old seems to pick about that time to wake up and sing into the monitor every night!

    I found on Obasan site that they carry this baby mattress that is chemical free. I had seen at a blog and sounds like “a dream”

    “Our Terra Nova 1.0 is an innerspring mattress covered in chemical-free organic wool and cotton that works with all different types of cribs. Because the only thing you’ll want more than a chemical-free mattress for yourself, is one for your child.”

    thanks!
