Calling Rudolph, Frosty, and all the usual suspects: Our Holiday Shop is here! We know that there’s a little more than a month left until Christmas, but we just couldn’t wait any longer to share our holiday items with you! This shops features everything any Christmas lover needs: festive apparel, red + green collars and leashes, toys that will drive your dog nuts, and even a few home needs!

Need some stocking stuffer ideas? Holiday toys are a must! For the interactive Bowser, the chimney and reindeer burrow toy is ideal – it is sure to keep your pup preoccupied for a good while! For those tough-toy lovers, the corduroy Rudolph knottie toy and extra tough holiday bear toy is a must. Although no toy is completely indestructible, these will hold up a good fight! If you’re looking for something cute (and can double as a decoration!), our ornament toys are perfect – with five different colors and patterns to choose from, you may feel tempted to decorate your whole tree with these gems!

As every holiday lover knows, the season isn’t complete without festive home décor! Whether it be a stocking for your pup, an ode to your pooch on the Christmas tree, or a nice snuggly blanket, adding décor dedicated to your four-legged member is adorable and stylish!

These are just the basics featured in our Holiday Collection. To get the full taste of it (there’s a lot we didn’t mention!), check out the collection on our website or in our three Southern California store locations. Happy Holidays!

In recent years, November has been deemed “Movember” in an effort to bring awareness to men’s health.  Men everywhere will be growing mustaches to raise money for prostate cancer research. We believe “man’s best friend” should get in on the fun too with our special edition Mustache Collection.

For dogs small to large, we have fun mustache collars to get into the spirit with a variety of styles including the ever popular Color-block Mustache Collar – a Mutt favorite!  Pair it with a matching Mustache-themed engraveable dog tag for the perfect ensemble. The front features a beautiful copper mustache with engraving on the back.

Of course this collection wouldn’t be complete without a toy. Be the talk of the dog park with our Humunga Stache Toy, which comes in a Mini version too. Get two-for-one with this toy – the inside is a rubber ball while the outside of the ball features an epic stache! This toy is sure to get a laugh or two! Our Mustache Collection allows us to bring awareness to a good cause. To check out our collection, go to our website or visit our three Southern California stores.

Check it Out: New Collar Styles for any Pup!

Colllars

If you didn’t know, we LOVE collars. We have over 200 different collars to choose from (yes, that’s 200, not 20!), with styles ranging to basic leather to polka dot fabric to everything in between. Our extreme collar selection sets us apart from the rest!

We hand-pick every single collar that you see on our website. How do we distinguish between the collars we offer and the collars that don’t make the cut, you ask? Well, we always make sure our collars not only have a unique design, but are perfect for any type of pup – the preppy pup, the blinged out pup, the rugged pup, etc. We also make sure that the material used on our collars is of high quality and has durable hardware. Because no dog is the same, we offer a variety of sizes of collars, from teacups to big breeds.

Since it can be a mess to go through every single collar on our site, we have them categorized for ease: if you’re looking for a fabric collar, check out our Fabric + Nylon Collars and Stripes, Plaids + Solid Fabric Collars sections. Leather lovers have two sections as well to check out: Leather Collars and Sparkle Collars (for that extra touch of bling). For pups that are in training, we have a spot devoted to all Training Collars. Teacups have their own section, featuring adorable leather and fabric collars. Lastly, if you’re a night walker, we have a Lighted or Reflective Collars + Leashes section.

CollarSelection

You’ve found the collar you love. Now what? Time to measure your dog’s neck for perfect sizing! Our blog post from last year, “The Pursuit of the Perfect Collar” give you all the information you need on how to find the perfect collar size:

For the ideal fit, you will want to allow for one to three fingers to fit between the collar and your dog’s neck, depending on your dog’s size. So, when you measure your pup’s neck, be sure to place the appropriate number of fingers underneath the measuring tape to find the true size. Below is a breakdown of how many fingers we advise according the size of the dog:

Small Size Dog (20 pounds or less) – 1 finger’s width
Medium / Average Sized Dog – 2 finger’s width
Extra Large Dog – 3 finger’s width

Now that you know what size your pup is, it’s time to shop! Here’s an added bonus: get 10% off when you purchase a collar/leash set! Use code WALK10 at checkout to save. Shop away!

If you’re looking into dressing your dog from neck to tail, this is perfect, as each item completely matches! If you’re more into the subtle Sock Monkey flair, then you have the ability to choose which item you like best. We love options!

Of course, this collection wouldn’t be complete with Sock Monkey toys! From multi-colored to corduroy to sock-made cat toys to the original Sock Monkey, we have enough Sock Monkey toys for you to fill your toy box to the rim!
