To sprawl out or cuddle up? Sink in or feel firmness? Whatever sleeping style your pup prefers, we have just the right dog bed for them, the commonality being exceptional, luxurious quality that provides a comfy place for your pup to relax.

 Katie Puff Lounge Dog Bed by Animals Matter

You may be asking yourself, “Where to begin?” Searching for the perfect dog bed for your pup can be rather confusing. There are an abundance of different styles, shapes, sizes, materials, and more, making the choices endless. Our goal is to help you narrow down those options, so we’ve put together a few pointers to help guide you towards the perfect bed. Determining your dog’s needs and likes are most important, but there are quite a few additional things to consider. So read on, and hopefully you’ll feel much more educated on your next purchase!

Why does your dog need a bed?

Bright Indoor and Outdoor Dog MatEvery pet deserves a comfortable place to rest, and so a bed is an essential, but beds can also be used for a variety of training solutions. Giving your dog a place of their own makes them feel more secure and comfortable in your home, and often will keep them out of trouble. Beds can also be used for travel. Placing a small bed or mat in your car teaches your dog to stay in a safe place and alleviates distractions while you’re driving. Determining how and where your pup will use their bed is the first step in making the right choice.

 

Observe your dog.

Plush Companion Katie Puff Dog BedDoes your dog like to curl up in a ball or sprawl out? Do you have a puppy that might need a more durable fabric or a senior dog that could benefit from orthopedic support? Shape and design are the next features to consider when making your bedding choice. Bolstered beds, often called donuts or cuddlers, come in square, circular and oval shapes and are perfect for snuggly dogs who like to tuck their paws in and curl up tight. If you have a sprawler, your pup would be more comfortable on a pillow bed where they can easily stretch without restriction from a bolster. If you have an aging pet, a low, orthopedic bed may be easiest on their joints.

 

Doghouse Fun Dog Bed CoverMany beds are constructed to be machine washable, but some have components that must be hand washed. This is important to know prior to making your purchase, especially if you prefer to wash often or have a dog that is prone to making a mess. Have a new puppy? We recommend choosing a bed that you can easily care for, accommodating for their extra messes.

 

Sizing is key.

Honeycomb Couch Dog BedA bed purchase is a big purchase, so be sure you’re choosing a bed that is the correct size for your pup. While shopping you’ll notice that sizing is not standardized across manufactures or shapes, so just because you have a medium sized breed doesn’t mean that you should purchase a medium sized bed. If you’ll be buying your dog’s next bed online, we often recommend pulling out a tape measure or meter stick to get a good visual picture. While lying flat, completely stretched out, your dog should not hang off the bed. If your pet's measurements are in-between sizes, we recommend purchasing the larger of the two sizes.

 

Introducing a new bed to your dog.

Champagne Mousse Faux Fur Trundle Dog BedMany dogs are skeptical of their fancy new pad for the first few days. Properly introducing them to their new dog bed is a simple process. To help your dog get comfortable, use positive reinforcement and never use the dog bed as a place to go for punishment. Hide some healthy dog treats inside, cuddle with them on the dog bed, or give them a new bone to chew when they are lying on their bed. All of these supportive experiences will convince your pet that the new dog bed really belongs to them.

Once you’ve answered these questions and considered these features, it’s time to search out the style that best suits you and your pup’s personality. Colors and prints are in abundance in our stores and online. With an astute buying team behind the reigns, Muttropolis has become the best place to shop for the latest, design-driven, luxury dog beds. So take a look at our selection, one of the widest in the pet products marketplace, as we’d love to help you find the next bed for your pup!

October is National Adopt-A-Dog Month!

Adopt-A-Dog Month

The best way to honor Adopt-A-Dog
Month
is by adopting a dog in need! Choose a pup from a shelter or rescue
group and you’ll save a life, save money, find a healthy pet, help in the fight
against puppy mills and pet stores, and feel better! A while back we posted some
excellent tips on how to get started,
and choosing the right pet.

Live near a Muttropolis store? Then you’re in luck! For the
month of October, we’ll be hosting
multiple adoptions
every weekend in each of our three Southern
California stores. We’ve included the dates and times for each of
these adoptions below. As a congratulations and thank you, we’ll be providing
every dog that is adopted at one of our events with a Muttropolis “wag bag,”
filled with goodies to enjoy with their new family.




Save A LifeAs some of you may know, Muttropolis is an “Animal Admirer”
for the San Diego Humane Society.
We’ve already admired two pups that have found loving homes, and recently
received our newest animal to admire, Huxley. He’s a male American Pit Bull Terrier
Mix, a staff favorite, and extremely smart after having undergone extensive
training for etiquette, housetraining and tricks. He loves to perform
and thrives in active, athletic environments like the dog park. Huxley is just
over 7 years old and neutered. For more information about handsome Huxley and
the adoption process at the San Diego Humane Society, visit his profile. The video of him showing off his skills will
win you over right away!Huxley is featured in many of the images below.

No matter how you choose to adopt, whether from a shelter,
rescue group, or someone you know, there is one thing we know for sure,
every
dog "can't wag without"
 
these
essentials:

Collar & Leash

Essentials
for safety, and don’t forget a personalized tag!


Dog CollarEvery dog needs a collar
and leash for walks, to hold their identification tag(s), and to show of their
personal style! Our wide collar assortment includes color, fabric and style
options for each and every canine customer, most with coordinating leashes. And
to keep your pup safe in the unfortunate event that they ever get lost, an
engravable tag is a must-have too. We have over 100 one-of-a-kind styles to
choose from!

Bed

Whether they
like to snuggle up or stretch out!


Dog BedLet’s face it, dogs
sleep a lot, so having a comfortable, well-crafted bed is something each
four-legged fur ball should have. We carry all of the top selling designer and
luxury dog beds included square bolstered, donut, double donut, pillow,
outdoor, mats, blankets, duvets and more! Options to accommodate every pup’s
sleeping preferences and home décor.

Bowls or Feeders

For
feasting, one of their favorite times of the day!


Raised Dog FeederWe believe that dogs should
dine in style. To accommodate for differing design preferences, we have classic
ceramic bowls, sleek stainless steel feeders, contemporary wooden designs, and
much more! Why do we love raised feeders? With their elevated ergonomic design,
they aid in digestion, preventing pups from eating too quickly and suffering
from the uncomfortable side-effects.

Toys

Plush,
rubber, tough, interactive, there are toys for every pup’s playing preferences!


Dog ToysToys are like good
friends, the more the merrier! We have unique toys for pup’s that love plush,
enjoy playing fetch, need something interactive to eliminate boredom, or play
so hard they need a toy build tough! Keep your new addition entertained and
you’re sure to have a much easier transition and happier pup.

Training Tools

Essentials
when bringing a new pup home!


Training ToolsA well trained dog is
a happy dog, so be sure to stay in control when you bring your new pup home. Effective
dog training tools that are safe and humane make this much easier! Dog crates, training collars, no-pull harnesses, potty pads and anti-bark
products, can all be lifesavers in establishing a safe and secure environment.

Treats

Great for
nutrition, training, and the obvious… rewarding!




Stella & Chewy's Carnivore CrunchKeep it all-natural!
We have done the research on dog nutrition so that you don’t have to. All of
our treats are all-natural, easily digestible, preservative-free, wholesome and
delicious. And best of all, each month we offer a special promotion on a Treat
of the Month
, this month it is Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried dog treats.
Buy 2, get 1 free for the whole month of October!

some ways you can still help.

Muttropolis Partners with KUSI & Holly’s Garden to Treat Your Dog for National Dog Day

Awesome Being A Dog

We're happy to announce that we'll be joining KUSI's Sandie Lampe, with rescue pups from Holly's Garden Rescue, on Monday, August 26th for National Dog Day. A celebration of
"the dog
," National Dog Day is an
annual event created to raise awareness about the thousands of dogs in need of
forever homes as well as to honor those dogs that bring so much joy to our
lives.

To honor these pups, Monday’s segment will
focus on giving dogs something they love. Most dogs would agree that resting in a cozy bed or the
opportunity to travel with their owner are preferred ways to pass time. We have
a vast array of products across categories, including essentials to make these
loved activities even more enjoyable, and with the holidays fast approaching,
National Dog Day is a good reminder that it’s never too early to start shopping
for your four-legged family members.

Our bedding assortment ranges from innovative
and eco-friendly
dog bed duvet covers that allow you
the freedom to regularly swap out your pet’s bedding effortlessly and affordably,
to luxuriously overstuffed and bolstered designer dog beds. The options are nearly endless, with beds to
suite every owner’s style preference, dog’s sleeping style, and complement
differing home décors.

For avid four-legged travelers, we have car
seats, handbag and luggage style carriers
, along with many other travel
essentials. Whether it’s a cross-country adventure or a quick trip to the
beach, a car seat provides your pup with a comfortable place of their own and a
much better view of the scenery. Easy to install and covered in cozy,
machine-washable fabrics like micro-fiber or sherpa, they are a must-have for canines that like to cruise around.

So whether it’s snoozing comfortably,
traveling safely, or something entirely different that sparks your pup’s
attention, National Dog Day is the perfect time to celebrate and reward them
for their extraordinary companionship, and Muttropolis is the perfect
pup-spoiling headquarters!

Tune in to KUSI at 9:00 AM on Monday, August
26th to meet the adorable
and adoptable pups
from Holly's Garden and
learn more about what dogs love. Each dog featured on the show that is adopted
will receive a "Muttropolis Wag Bag" including toys, treats and
exclusive offers from Muttropolis.
