Bandablings: What every dog needs! Review & Giveaway (5 winners) - US Only - CLOSD

This giveaway has ended! Thanks for visiting!

 As I mentioned earlier this morning, Logan received a Slobber Blotter™ and a Bandabling from Bandabling to review and he just loved them but I wanted to tell you a little more about our experience and about this company!  The patent pending Slobber Blotter™ won the prestigious pet industry award for best new pet product in 2009!  If you have a slobbering dog breed, this is definitely the bandana for you!  As the company states, this is, "the "Must Have, Need to Have" pet bandana. Finally, a product that lets the slobbering, drooling, dripping dogs do it in style while you no longer have it on floors, furniture, in the car and on your clothes. Just blot it all away."

When I first saw the Slobber Blotter™ I immediately thought of a big bib for drooly dogs made of super-soft terry cloth (I wish my towels were this soft) and the cotton fabric is really durable too!  The Slobber Blotter™ has two snaps making it easily adjustable, but you can also roll it (as shown on Logan) for a snugger fit!

No one will ever know that your furbaby is wearing a drool bib because it looks like a stylish bandana.  It's long enough to catch the drool and gives you enough room to wipe up the drool as it comes flying at you!  There will no longer be a need to carry rags and paper towels with you everywhere!  The Slobber Blotter™ is perfect for Bull Mastiffs, St Bernard's, Newfoundlands, Rottweilers, Great Danes and all the other slobbering dogs we love.

And for all the pet parents of non-drooling dogs, you really need to check out Bandablings!  The Snap On, Snap Off, adjustable snap closure, allows for easier sizing, and greater comfort and safety. Bandablings eliminate tie bandanas to reduce choking hazards and do not get caught in the dog’s fur like Velcro®. Bandablings were the winner of Best New Pet Product 2008 for safety, innovation and design.  Logan absolutely loves his Bandabling!  As a Great Dane, Bandabling sent a size Large which fits him perfectly!  The Bandabling covers his collar on the loosest snap but could also be worn tighter with the adjustable snaps!  There is amazing attention to detail with these bandanas!  Every Bandabling is hand sewn and hand snapped and it shows!

Logan's Bandabling is adorned with three small metal bones and is made with a heavy-weight cotton.  I think these colors look amazing on him too!  The snaps hold the Bandabling secure enough for the kids to pull on it, but also came undone easily when he got stuck on a tree in the backyard which was a definite plus (something that wouldn't have happened with a traditional bandana)!

Bandabling also supports dog rescue and education groups!  Please check out these rescue groups and help support these organizations in need of funds to care for animals without a home and in need of medical attention.  One very near and dear to our hearts is MAGDRL (Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League) who once fostered "Dewey" and helped him find his way to our home as Logan in 2003!  The Dogue de Bordeaux Society and Golden Retriever Rescue and Education Organization!

You also have a wonderful opportunity to support our veterans! If you make a purchase of the Hound Up the Troops Bandabling, you'll receive free shipping and $1.00 of your purchase will go directly to Walter Reed Medical Center! Your dog will look awesome and you'll be helping our troops at the same time!

I think my favorites are houndstooth and ocean breeze. Fudge, however, thinks he's look stunning in the Hunt's Club print. It goes so well with his natural brown curls.

You'll have to join us next year for Bandana Day on June 10. It'll be our third annual event and the color will be green.

The Gang of Four and I liked the Aloha Banadbling immediately! They're all Bearded Collies, and all are medium-sized. (The Princess is on the smaller side of medium than are the boys.)

I am still looking for the Google Friend Connect widget on your site, but will happily trade follows on NetworkedBlogs! I'm also checking out that Brego mug, for sure!

I love the Biker Boy! If I won, it would go to Chester (I have 2 yorkies and two morkies) Chester is a Daddy's little man. Follows him everywhere. He also LOVES wearing bandanas and even steals some of my husbands!

My Favorite Bandabling would be the biker bandabling for the boy. I have a rowdy 1 yr old Jack Russell Terrier that would definetely look good in this! Thanks
