MUTTROPOLIS DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: Molly Mutt

Molly Mutt logo

Beginning with our first store over 10 years ago, our goal has been to find the most unique and stylish pet products out there. We enjoy high quality and high design for ourselves, so why can’t our pets?! A few years ago, we discovered Molly Mutt, an eco-friendly and anything but ordinary dog bedding company.

amsterdamLocated in Northern California, Molly Mutt uses fun, eccentric fabrics to create dog bed duvet covers, dog crate covers + more. Molly’s duvet covers are the perfect way to recycle an old dog bed or make your own. How do you make your own? It’s easy – stuff the sack with old blankets, pillows, towels, anything you have lying around, zip it up and throw a cover on! Not only is this eco-friendly, but because she has so many different covers to choose from, you can switch it up whenever you want! Whether it be an outdoor cover for sleeping outside in the cooler months or a fashionable cover to spice up your living room décor, Molly has it. Another added bonus? These covers are machine washable, making cleaning a breeze!18985-DEFAULT-l

As if a duvet cover wasn’t enough, Molly also has coordinating crate covers for those pups that are still in crates. Crate covers are perfect if you want to give your pup some privacy, as they roll down, or if you want to add a touch of style to a basic wire crate.

We love Molly Mutt and can’t wait to see what they have for us in the future! To check out all of Molly Mutt’s fun items, check out our website.

MUTT’S NEW: We’re Going Camping!

Camping Collection

I don’t know about you, but when I think of summer, one of the first things that pops in my head is camping. Sleeping in a tent, making yummy s’mores, what’s there not to love?! In honor of this popular summer activity, we have curated a collection dedicated to camping. If any of these items remind you of Wes Anderson’s 2012 movie Moonrise Kingdom, then you know where we got the inspiration from!

rIMG_6974The “Pup Scout” shirt, dress and beret take us back to our old Girl and Boy Scout days! Your friends will be thinking your pup is selling Girl Scout cookies or learning how to make a fire with these goods. The “I Love Camping” hoodie is perfect for those cool camping nights, too!

While the humans light up the BBQ and snack on yummy food, let your pup enjoy the fun, too! With eco-friendly breakfast toysrIMG_6777 like pancakes, bacon and eggs made of 100% leather and realistic-smelling pork ribs and chicken legs toys, you won’t have to feel like you’re leaving your dog out of the yummy goodness.

When you’re out camping, you’re sleeping in a sleeping bag, but what about your pup? Check out the ultimate portable dog bed from Ruffwear – this thing is not only comfortable and warm, but can be rolled up when it’s not used, making it the easiest thing you’ll have to pack. Another bonus? It’s machine washable, making it another easy thing the clean when you get home!

Our Camping Collection will make you wish that it could be camping season all year long! To peep the rest of the collection, visit our website or any of our three Southern California stores. Now, get to packing!!

MUTT’S UP: 5 Ways to Keep Your Dog Cool

765-cool
We LOVE summer. But, news flash: it’s hot. Humans are able to keep in tune with our bodies and know when we need to be cool, but how can you tell when your dog is hot? Signs of heatstroke in dogs can include excessive panting, bright red tongue, thick, sticky saliva and dizziness, to name a few. How can heatstroke be prevented? Keep them cool! We’ve come up with a list of five things that are sure to keep your dog cool during the warm months.
KoolCollar1. The Kool Collar. Add some ice and clip around your dog’s neck. It’ll cool down your pup’s whole body!
2. Make sleeping a breeze with a Pressure Activated Cool Pet Pad. If they made this in a human size, we’d want one. This pad isPressure Pad pressure activated and will keep your pup cool for 3-4 hours. The “coolest” part? It re-charges itself automatically when it’s not being used – no refrigeration, water or electricity needed!
popsicle3. Freeze a toy! Toys like the Chilly Bone and the Freezable Popsicle are made to freeze. All you have to do is soak the toy and pop it in the freezer. Not only will these toys cool your pup down, but they promote teeth and gum health!
iCool Vest
4. A cooling vest is always a good idea. The iCool vest is made of water-cooling material and doesn’t need any refrigeration. Let the vest soak, wring out the excess water and voila! Your pup will be cool in no time!
5. Let them take a swim! A good ol’ swim will definitely help your pup cool down! The Ruffwear K9 Float Coat is the dog version of a life jacket – need we say more?
Summer can be fun if you keep your and your pup safe at all times. To check out more ways to keep  your dog cool, peep our Summer Essentials Collection. Enjoy!
