MUTT’S NEW: Chill Out!

cool

We’re in the midst of summer, which means it is HOT out there. Although we love this weather, sometimes the heat is unbearable. We can help cool PED-COOL-HRNyour pup (and you!) off this summer with our Summer Essentials Collection!

One easy way to keep your dog cool during the rising temperatures is to have something cooling on their body. Things that can be frozen like the kooling collar, the cooling harness and the cooling bandana are an easy way to keep Bowser from overheating. Something like the cool pet pad is ideal for those that are constantly hot, as this pressurized pad cools your pup down as soon asKIN-HYDRO-BALL they lay down.

Have a dog that loves to play? Drop toys in water and freeze them for the ultimate playing experience! Toys like the chuckit ball, the hydro flyer and the freezable “fruit” are waterproof, floatable and freeze in a breeze!

RIN-RINSEKITOne of our favorite ways for dogs (and us) to keep cool is with the RinseKit. This pressurized shower is portable and gives you four minutes of non-stop spraying, making it a great way to rinse everyone off after a day at the beach or to spray on a hot day.
This quick and easy to fill shower doesn’t need any electricity to work, which is even more handy!

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! ☺
