Empty Nest Syndrome for dogs? It’s true! While the kids and parents are excited about heading back to school, the four-legged family members may not share the same joy.

They’ve had a summer of fun with their human brothers and sisters, and now they have to leave – wouldn’t you be sad too? Professor Nicholas Dodman from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine told the Today Show that at least one in six dogs and numerous cats will show symptoms of separation anxiety after the kids go back to school. What are these symptoms, you might ask? They’re easy to spot once you realize what they are: chewing furniture, ripping the stuffing out of pillows, going to the bathroom in the house, obsessive barking/whining and shredding paper are just a few, according to Banfield Pet Hospital. How do you reduce this stress? We have a few ideas:

  1. Avoid emotional departures and greetings. Teach your kids to avoid over stimulating your pup at these times.
  2. Plan to exercise Bowser before you leave and always make a calm exit.

atlantisKeeping your pet comfortable or preoccupied is a great way to beat Bowser Boredom. Consider a few of these tools to help you and your pet:

  1. Crate/Crate Cover/Crate Mattress: A crate is the safest place for your pup to be when you’re out. Adding a mattress keeps them more comfortable and a crate cover simulates the feeling of a den which makes it a calm and peaceful setting.rIMG_4560
  2. Bed: If they’re not crate-trained, a bed is a great option. Beds with bolsters that surround your dog give a feeling
    of security. Choose a pillow bed if your dog likes to sprawl out.
  3. rphoto-3Gate: Letting your pup have free roam of the house can be dangerous if curiosity gets the best of them and they get into something that can be harmful. Choose a dog-proof room in the house that gives them enough space to move around and can fit a water bowl and bed.
  4. Interactive toys: Although no toy is completely indestructible, a sturdy toy or an interactive treat-releasing toy will give notrIMG_5538 (1) only stimulate your pup’s brain, but will keep them preoccupied! You know your dog best, we don’t recommend leaving toys with puppies or dogs that are tough chewers.
  5. BabyBark2Bark Collar: Our Citronella or Air spray bark collars are a safe and humane way to correct your dog when barking. The spray is released once the dog barks to interrupt the behavior.
  6. Thundershirt: If your pup gets excited or scared when you are in the process of leaving, try the Thundershirt. thundershirtOriginally invented for dogs that are scared of loud noises, the Thundershirt can be used anytime a dog is feeling anxious.  The burrito-like constant pressure that the shirt gives your pup gives them a feeling of security and calms them down.
  7. rIMG_0888Pet Calm Drops:  This all-natural remedy settle nerves and reduce anxiety prior to any stress-enhancing event. Add a few drops to their water each morning.

Take these steps to prevent your pup from separation anxiety and back to school time will be a breeze for you and your pup!

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 UP: 5 Ways to Keep Your Dog 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!

MUTT’S NEW: Beach Bound!


Time to hang up the coats and grab your swimsuits – summer has arrived and we’re ready to hit the beach! Don’t forget to bring your pup along for the ride. We’ve got all the goods your pup will need to be beach bound in our Beach Collection!

Getting your pup ready for the beach is easy. Wearing clothes can help reduce the sun exposure to your pup’s body and make them look adorable! A few favorites of ours include the Striped Crab Tank, Ocean Critters Hoody and the Whale Print Tank that has an SPF40 treatment in it that lasts 50 washes! If your dog prefers to be naked, a fun collar with a pop of collar can go a long way, like the Blue Polka Dot Collar, Whale Collar or Whale Bow Tie.

Ocean-themed toys are always a fun idea! Whether it be a tough toy, like the extra tough whale, a plush toy with an added twist, like the shrimp with chew guard, or the teeth-cleaning whale knit dog toy, your pup will be pleased with any ocean critter toy in their toy box! If you want to involve the water during playtime, check out the Ruffwear Hydro Floating Disc Toy – pontoon-like construction makes this disc float on top of water for visibility and fun!
