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.

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.

Fetchingly Fresh: Nautical & Surf Inspired Collection for Your Dog!

Our new Nautical
collection has arrived at Muttropolis stores and online at Muttropolis.com!
Whether your pup is an avid sailor or simply loves the ocean infused style, this
collection is sure to offer some fun, fashionable additions to their wardrobe,
toy box, or resting place.

Paws

Stripes,
flags and anchors decorate our new nautical apparel offerings. Have a boy dog
that likes to take the helm? Then the 100% cotton Captain Dog Tank is just what he needs! For girl pups, we have the Nautical Sailor Dog Dress or Anchor Dog Dress, both dainty and
adorable. Our very popular Puppia offerings, the Love Boat Dog Tank and Anchor
Dog Harness
are great gender neutral options. Puppia vest harnesses are
often a customer favorite, constructed with velcro closures at the neck and
chest to eliminate pulling and ensure the pup is safely secured and
comfortable.

Care for
something a little more cultural? The Nautical
Flags Dog Collar
and Leash set
and Nautical Dog Collar and Leash set are covered in bright flags
and symbols, perfect for pups that enjoy the open ocean! If anchors are more
your speed, the Anchors Dog Collar and
Leash set features red anchors on
crisp blue and white stripes. All sets are made in the USA with quality ribbon sewn onto
durable nylon webbing, featuring buckle closures and D-rings.

If you have
a beach house, or simply like beach décor, you should take a look at the Nautical Boat Print Indoor-Outdoor Dog Bed
Cover
. It can be used to cover an old bed or stuffed with standard sized
pillows, blankets or clothes to create a brand new bed. Having the versatility to move
this bed from indoors to outdoors is a great feature, especially during the summer when pups love
to bask in the sun! We’ve also included quite a few futons in this collection since they are lightweight and portable, can be used in crates, rolled up
for travel, or used as a great alternative to a bulky, heavy bed. The Anchors Print Dog Futon and Coral Starfish Dog Futon are two of our
favorites for ocean lovers. 

 
Starfish

Last but
not least, our nautical toy collection is full of fun canine crowd pleasers.
The Lobster Extra Tough Dog Toy is
built to last, made with multiple layers of flexible materials and two rows of
double stitching. Have less of a rough-houser? The Rope Starfish Dog Toy is beautifully crafted and built to withstand
throwing, slinging and gnawing, while also aiding in keeping your pups teeth
and gums clean. Toys are a great gift, whether for your own four-legged family
member or a friend’s. Every pup deserves something new for summertime!

Our Eco-Friendly Collection for Dogs and Cats

Puppy on a globeHappy Earth Day everyone! With an ever increasing abundance of eco-friendly products
and services across industries, it is no surprise that planet friendly pet products
and practices are also on the rise. We here at Muttropolis are very proud to offer a wide, and always expanding,
assortment of eco-friendly pet products.
It is our hope to help reduce carbon pawprints by providing pets with organic dog toys, collars and leashes, biodegradable poop bags and
eco-friendly pet beds, just to name a few!

In honor of Earth Day, and in an effort to educate pet
parents and promote the reduction of carbon pawprints, we’ve put together this
short list of eco-friendly suggestions:

1)      
Get rid of pet junk food. Since nutrition is essential for optimum pet health, it is
important to look for natural and organic pet foods, free of artificial and
genetically engineered ingredients and additives. Look for meat sources that
are raised in sustainable, humane conditions. Many pet food brands include
reconstituted animal by-products, essentially low-grade wastes that humans
wouldn’t touch, let alone eat. At Muttropolis, we carry a large variety of
safe, All Natural Dog Food (including Dehydrated varieties), All Natural Dog Treats, Natural Dog Supplements, and a small assortment
of All Natural Cat Food and Treats as
well.

Poopbags2)      
Pick up poop the biodegradable way. Use
biodegradable bags to pick up your pet’s poop so that it doesn’t live in a
plastic bag at the bottom of a landfill, lasting for hundreds of years to come.
We carry eco-friendly poop pick-up bags, some more eco-friendly than others, with White Compostable Pick-up Bags at the
top of the environmentally friendly list. They are made from 100% renewable
resources, protecting the environment by degrading in as little as 40 days.

3)      
Spoil your pet with sustainable products. Saving the planet can be fun for
your pets too! Choose products that are made from recycled materials or
sustainable fibers. Hemp is a great choice, as it is one of the most abundantly
occurring crops in nature and makes super-strong fabric. Check out our Hemp Star Dog Collar and Leash set that was seen on the CBS
Early Show, or the popular Eco Nap
Recycled Fleece Dog Mat
, made from 85% recycled plastic soda bottles! Our sustainable
product assortment doesn’t stop there, with many more toys and beds that are
made from recyclable fibers, or made to be recycled.

4)      
Choose natural pet care and cleaning products. We carry quite a few grooming products
that are all natural and free of harsh chemicals, such as Richard’s Organics Deodorant Dog Shampoo and Petkin’s Eco Bamboo Pet Wipes and Eye Wipes, all gentle on your pet and the planet. Steer clear of
those brands that produce chemical laced grooming products.

Hempstar
Bonetag

5)      
Make sure your pet always wears a tag. Losing a pet can be trying both emotionally and environmentally.
Printing posters and driving around town in search of your missing four-legged
friend has an environmental impact that could be avoided if you were alerted
quickly that they were found. Whether you choose an electronic ID chip or a
hang tag, the important thing is that your contact information is easily
accessible. Our large Engravable Pet Tag
includes Chrome Pet Tags in a
variety of shapes, Stainless Steel Pet Tags with different image and color
options, as well as Decorate Metal Pet Tags. There is a style and size suitable for every
pet!

Now
is as good a time as ever to start reducing your pet’s carbon pawprints! Please
visit Muttropolis.com or one of our
three Southern California store locations to shop our eco-friendly
assortment
and learn more about planet friendly pet practices.
