Slumber Balls Are Going To Be Discountinued!

Recommended Posts

So Fosters and Smith customer service replied back to me today to say that they haven't made any decisions about which products to discontinue. And even if they did, their manufacturers are proprietary information so they can't tell me who they are. LOL! Sheesh, how very corporate!

they are made in china, like everything else.....TARIFFS???

you got a totally different answer.

 

the material that costco has started to use is garbage! i was looking for dental chews the other day and a new box of beds was just opened. awful! a nester would destroy it in a week!

 

yes, i picked up 3 bolster beds( for me and friends) at $15 each when they were discontinuing them!

I love how the slumberball fits my guy but DH and I have been looking for 2 days at beds and can't find a suitable alternative. Does anyone have a good bed that they like?

Yikes. Last year I tried so hard to find out who their supplier for these was and couldn't figure it out. Maybe now they'll reveal that information to a competitor. Let me look around a bit...

I used to work at DFS and I believe Jacquart fabrics in MI manufactured these if Im remembering correctly. Wonder if they would make these for a different pet supply company since DFS is closing down now due to Petco taking them over. I have two Italian Greyhounds that love these beds as well.

I so hope some smart company will start making these beds again.

 

I'm currently struggling, with much frustration, to make a knock-off Slumber Ball because my 2 dogs are constantly squabbling over who gets to sleep on the one real Slumber Ball I have. After the expense and hassle of trying to sew something similar, I'd so happily pay someone else to do that!

we bought it about 8 months ago and still he won't touch it. I can't even remember what we paid for it. Who wants it?????

Ruth, I really thought when I unpacked the Slumber Ball that my timid boy SPirit would be hesitant to climb aboard. Wrong! He hopped right up there and loves it. I'd be very interested in talking about purchasing your unused bed.

I have never done anything like this before so If you know how to make this private please feel free to proceed.

I've sent you a PM here through Greytalk. You'll see it via the envelope on the upper right of the screen.

Ruth, I see that you found it. Sorry for the confusion.

 

ETA: I sent address info in the "Slumber Ball" PM you responded to yesterday here on GreyTalk. I also sent that info in a reply to your PM to me earlier this morning. In the uppers right of the GT screen, to the left of your user name, click on the envelope symbol to see the PM conversations. Otherwise, I'll just email you, if that is easier.

I'm toying with an etsy business to produce and sell an improved slumberball concept (no more clumpy fluff!) Will ask shortly for product testers! Currently sourcing all my materials and working out a business plan. (While watching my boys sleep in their homemade balls!)

I am seriously bummed out about this. WHY is no one selling the slumber ball? It's such a great dog bed. I've bought several in XL for our boxers. If anyone has any leads on where I can get more, please please let me know!

I know I’m a year late but I just discovered the whole slumber ball debacle!! I’m devastated! We love ours SO much!! I was looking to buy the next size smaller to make traveling with them a bit easier. Has anyone found anything comparable to use in the last year?? Thanks!

Would love to see you market a slumberball on Etsy or anywhere.  Harper Lee would be a wonderful tester for you here in FL., as she is a 14 year old greyhound.  I am picture challenged.
