WHAT WE’RE DIGGIN’: Beat the Cold Weather Blues

winterchill

Whether you’re in Hawaii or in the East Coast’s Snowpacalpse, it’s COLD! Remember, you’re not the only one that needs to keep warm in the winter – your pup does too! Pups are just as sensitive to the weather as we are (if not more!). Don’t let the cool weather limit Bowser’s activity – go out there and play!

Keep your pup warm in that brisk weather with a fleece jacket or puffer vest! A fleece jacket that’s water resistant has a dual purpose – not only will it keep your dog nice and warm, but the outer shell is made with nylon – perfect for those walks in the rain! If your baby needs warmth over water-resistantance, then our best-seller fleece pullover will do the trick. It comes in an array of colors and is easy to pull on and take off, making it perfect if you need it on in a pinch! If you’re looking more for basic rainwear, then the reversible raincoat is ideal. Because it’s reversible, it’s basically like two raincoats in one! It’s hooded, making it the ultimate cover-up for rainy days. Another great addition to your pup’s winter wardrobe? Boots! Our Ruffwear Summit Trex Boots protect against salt or other snowmelt chemicals as well as protect against extreme temperatures. These boots keep moisture out of the paws and have great traction. It’s a win-win!

Another way to stay warm? Beds and blankets of course! Whether it be a super comfy throw, a cave bed (this could also work as an awesome hide-and-seek bed!) or a roll-up bed for comfort on the go, any type of soft and warm fabric is perfect for the cool weather!

Just because it’s cold and snowy out shouldn’t limit your fun outside. Now that you know how to keep warm, it’s time to go out and play! Check out the rest of our Winter Essentials Collection online or at any of our Muttropolis stores.

The food you eat is in their food and treats! The HK team even taste-tests all their products – if that doesn’t make you a fan, then we don’t know what will!

Our wide selection of The Honest Kitchen food and treats is perfect for dogs and cats of all sizes. Yummy flavors include duck and cherry, dehydrated fish, hormone-free chicken, among others – there’s something for everyone!

Keep your Pet Safe + Happy this Holiday Season!

Christmas Pup

We’re the first to say that the Holidays are the best time of year, but with all the fun to be had, it’s extremely important to stay safe – especially when it comes to keeping your pups out of harm’s way! Here are some helpful tips on how to keep your furry friends safe during the holidays!

  1. Keep your decorations pet friendly. When decorating your tree, keep the special ornaments at the tip top of the Christmas tree and hang wooden, metal or resin-cast ornaments on the lower branches in case your pup is a curious one. Whatever you do, do NOT let your pet near any electrical cords – playing or chewing these cords could cause injury or even electrocution. To prevent this, hide the cords by routing them through a PVC pipe.
  2. Don’t let Bowser near the holiday plants! Poinsettias, mistletoe and holly are all poisonous – if your pup accidentally eats any of these plants, there’s a chance they’ll experience vomiting, diarrhea or other serious health problems. Instead of having them nibble on plants, give them a nice, yummy treat to nibble on instead – it’s safer and much more delicious!
  3. Brrr! Keep your pup warm! The Holidays are a chilly time – even with the heaviest coats, cold weather is a serious risk to pups of all sizes. When it’s really cold out, only take your pup out for short periods of time and keep them nice and warm when outside.
  4. We know it’s tempting, but don’t give your furry friend any Holiday leftovers! Your mom’s holiday ham may have been amazing, but don’t share it with your pup – there’s a chance they could choke or get sick. Spoil them with delicious treats instead!

Now that we’ve hooked you up with some helpful tips, it’s time to celebrate the holidays! Happy Holidays from all of us to you!
