MUTT’S HAPPENING: Got Love?

Valentines Set

Ah, Valentine’s Day – the day of love. We hope you’re ready for it because we are! We’ve gotten into the serious Valentine’s Day spirit with our newest Valentine’s Day Collection, available in stores and online now!

One of our favorite things about this collection is not only the large amount of red and pink items involved, but that each of these items can be worn or played with any day of the year, not just Valentine’s Day. Our favorites include the Kiss Me Tee (make sure to play the song “Kiss Me” in the rIMG_9545background when wearing this tee), the Hearts on Pink Bowtie (perfect for a candlelit dinner), the Hearts Fleece Sweater (stay warm and be festive at the same time!) and the Love Tank (who says no to rhinestones?!).

What’s something that dogs love? Plush toys of course! The toys in this collection are not only adorbs, but are SUPER SOFT – like soft enough that you might want to steal it from fido and snuggle with it yourself. One in particular, the plush hippo, isrIMG_9475 insanely soft and definitely cuddle-material! Other ones we love? The fun, furry heart toy and the durable Humunga Lips toy!

This collection screams Valentine’s Day – we hope you love it as much as we do! If you’re interested in celebrating the holiday of love with us, we will be holding special Valentine’s Day parties at our La Jolla and Solana Beach locations! Visit our La Jolla store on Saturday, February 6th from 12-3PM for their party, complete with a Kissing Booth and Paw Print Art, and visit our Solana Beach store on Sunday, February 7th from 5-6PM for games and free play in their yard.

MUTT FAVORITES: Halloween Collection + Halloween Night Tips

Trick or Treat

BOO! Just as we are recovering from the summer heat, we jump right into ghosts and goblins! We love Halloween – not just for the scary stuff, but for costume-wearing, party-throwing and trick-or-treating fun! Depending on what event you and your pup are going to, you’ll need the goods. We’re a huge fan of hilariously fun costumes, as you can tell! For those that prefer to not dress up in a costume, grab a Halloween-themed bandana – they’re easy to take on and off and are festive enough to celebrate this spooky holiday. Halloween-themed toys are a fun addition for a dog that doesn’t enjoy wearing clothing at all!

Whatever type of Party-Animal you may have, safety is most important. Here are a few ways to ensure everyone has a great time:

  1. Nighttime visibility is key. You always want to know your dog’s whereabouts, especially when trick-or-treating. Use lighted or reflective collars, leashes or harnesses and make sure they are securely fastened – you never know if your pooch will get frightened by all the costumes!
  2. No candy or decorations for Bowser. Candy (especially chocolate) can be toxic to pets and decorations like fake spider webs or small favors could be a choking hazard to dogs and cats.
  3. If they don’t want to go out, let them stay at home. Some pets can be frightened or agitated by the unaccustomed sights and sounds of costume visitors. If this is the case, keep them in a quiet space away from trick-or-treaters. We recommend a room with their bed and a favorite toy!
  4. ID tags on collars is essential. With doors opening constantly on Halloween night, there’s multiple opportunities for your pet to run out. We recommend your furry friend wears a collar with an ID tag just in case of any accidental getaways!

We hope you have a happy and safe Halloween! ☺

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!
