design, Buddy Belts are made to eliminate stress on the pet’s neck. Traditional
neck collars can cause unnecessary strain and discomfort which can result in
damage to the trachea and/or spine of the pet. Buddy Belts provide a high
quality, fashionable and functional solution for this hazardous occurrence. With a
unique, easy to us step-in design, Buddy Belt harnesses offer optimum upper
mobility, allowing pets to move naturally. Each harness fastens between the
shoulder blades and the pet’s front legs extend through two holes. We carry a
wide variety of colors in both Buddy Belt harnesses and leashes, all
handcrafted from 100% soft double-layered leather.

New to Muttropolis, the Fashionably Safe Collar & Leash Combo You’ve Been Searching For!

Pup-protector-logoWith safety at top of mind
and a dedication to finding the latest and most innovative products for your
pet, we’ve teamed up with Pup Protector
to be the first retailer to introduce their fashionably safe collars and
leashes!

Pup Protector was born
after tragedy struck Trevor Jensen and Naraku, his beloved Weimaraner. For six
years, the duo walked every morning before sunrise to maintain optimum mental
and physical health. However, one morning at 4:45AM, Trevor was struck by a car
after throwing Naraku out of the way. Not until that morning did Trevor realize
the real danger that the two of them faced going out in the dark without lights
and/or reflective gear. In search for a solution, Trevor was inspired to build
the Pup Protector brand.

Collar_black
Collar_white
Collar_grey
With a passion to protect every
dog that walks in the dark and a realization that there was nothing on the
market that could meet that need, Trevor started designing and developing a line
of ultra-bright lighted LED collars and leashes. Made with cutting edge
thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), often used in various eco-friendly products,
Pup Protector collars and leashes are safe and durable. Featuring a row of
extremely bright LED lights with three settings, one static and two different
flashing modes, protective pup parents are able to adjust for maximize
visibility, accommodating preferences and safety concerns. Each collar and
leash has a small battery affixed that will last for roughly 30 hours if lights
are left on static mode. If blinking, the battery life may last even longer.
For consumer convenience, all Pup Protector products are designed to use flat
batteries, also used for watches and financial calculators and available in
many retail locations.

Leash_blackLeash_whiteLeash_grey
The benefits of choosing a Pup
Protector collar and leash goes far beyond keeping your four-legged friend safe
during early morning or late night walks, you’re also able to (1)
easily spot your dog off leash, (2) distinguish your dog in a large pack or at
a dog park, (3) keep an eye on your dog in your yard, and (4) differentiate
between multiple dogs by choosing collars with different LED colors. Built on a
passion to protect and a desire to make a movement, Pup Protector stands behind
their products, offering a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

We
are pleased to stand behind the Pup Protector brand as well, supporting their growth
while being the first to offer these innovative, safe and stylish dog collars
and leashes. Beginning May 3rd, Pup Protector products will be
available in all three of our Southern California
store locations and online at Muttropolis.com. Time to suite your pup
up for safety!

Muttropolis Will Be At The 22nd Annual Pug Party This Saturday in Del Mar!

BannerWe’re happy
to announce our participation in the 22nd
Annual Pug Party
put on by Pug
Rescue of San Diego County (PRSDC)
, an all-volunteer organization dedicated
to rescuing unwanted, neglected, abandoned or relinquished pugs and placing
them in new, loving and caring home environments. The party will take place
from 10AM to 4PM at the Infield Pavilion area of the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children.

The Del Mar
Pug Party is the PRSDC’s largest fundraiser, with over 500 pugs in attendance each
year. This year’s theme is “Pug Super Heroes,” with costume contests, talent
competitions and chow down competitions for all pug attendees to enjoy. Contest
entry fees are $5 per pug per contest. After enjoying those activities, pugs
can relax and socialize at the exclusive Pug Café while owners shop at the
Unique Pug Boutique and vendor booths, enter in the raffle for a chance to win
one of the 20 basket prizes, or socialize over refreshments. There will also be
an “Ask the Vet” booth with three registered veterinarian technicians available
to answer questions and clip nails.

MultipleOur involvement
in this year’s event includes the donation of a raffle prize and attendance at
a vendor booth. We’ll be offering specially selected, pug perfect products
including Buddy Belt Dog Harnesses
and matching Buddy Belt Leashes,
all handcrafted from 100% soft, double-layered leather. Buddy Belt Dog Harnesses
are one of our most popular harnesses and come highly recommended by
veterinarians as they provide both comfort and control while eliminating any
stress on the pet’s neck. The leather is very durable, yet softens and molds to
the pet’s body for a custom fit.

To help pugs
beat the heat we’ll also have Gulpy
Water Dispensers
. These dispensers are a great way to take H2O on the go,
functioning as both a water bottle and bowl in one. And for treats, we will
have Mutt Munchers, our Muttropolis exclusive
dog treats made locally in Southern California.
Grain-free with only all natural, human-grade ingredients, Mutt Munchers are
delicious and nutritious, available in a variety of flavors for pup’s differing
dietary needs and preferences.


GulpyPeanut

The Annual
Pug Party will be a fun-filled, memorable event for all, and we are very happy
to be a part. For more information about the PRSDC’s 22nd Annual Pug
Party, visit www.pugbutts.com.


Please note: Due to a new
requirement by Del
Mar, proof of each pug’s rabies vaccination will be needed for entry. Those
without documentation may need to sign a release statement certifying that
their dog(s) do not have such vaccinations. The waiver is available at
www.pugbutts.com. Pug Rescue regrets any inconvenience this new rule by Del Mar may cause.

Save 33% On Mutt Munchers During the Month of May!

Our much
loved Mutt Munchers are the “Treat of the Month” for May! Delicious,
nutritious and made fresh in local Southern California,
these grain-free dog treats, exclusive to Muttropolis, are 33% off all month
long.

MeatballAvailable
in a wide variety of flavors, Mutt Munchers are sure to compliment any pup’s
dietary needs and preferences. Our current assortment includes Peanut Butter Poppers, Blueberry, Banana Split, Salmon Snappers, Bacon Bites, Liver Lovers, and the new and improved Meatball, now made with more meat! All flavors are grain-free and
include only all natural, human-grade ingredients. Garbonzo beans take the
place of grain, resulting in a tasty treat that is packed with protein and a
good source of dietary fiber.

Why choose
grain-free? Grains are a common allergy in dogs and can cause itchiness and
other uncomfortable symptoms. Because grains take much longer to break down in
the stomach, dogs often have trouble digesting them. Sticking with food and treats
that are grain-free will make a positive impact on any pup’s health.

One of our
loyal Muttropolis customers described her and her pup’s happiness with the
Bacon Bites Mutt Munchers as such:



Bacon2
These treats are wonderful! They
smell absolutely delicious, which is a refreshing change from most commercially
available dog treats. They are the perfect size for providing a small snack,
without having to worry about my corgi putting on weight. They are a good
value, as well. One bag lasts about 2 months, and that’s with giving her 1-2
treats each day. – CorgiSD from San Diego

Delicious,
nutritious and cost efficient, Mutt Munchers are a great addition to any dog’s
diet! So don’t miss out, they are only on sale from May 1st through May
31st. Online customers can redeem this special offer at Muttropolis.com by using the code MUNCH33
at checkout. The promotion is also being offered at all three of our Southern California store
locations
