Pets are a part of the family, and just like children, these four-legged furry family members deserve exceptional care and occasional spoiling. We’re just the place
to provide products for both! Very recently, in an effort to help adoring
parents give their pampered pets “A
Place of Their Own,” we’ve expanded our product
assortment to include Personalized Pet Products,
such as dog collars, dog beds, pet blankets and engravable pet tags.

Our Custom Embroidered Dog Collar is a
stylish, tag free alternative to keeping a dog safe in the unfortunate event
that he or she goes missing. With the pup’s name and owner’s phone number
clearly embroidered directly on the collar, no dog should go missing for long. Each
collar is made in the USA
with quality grosgrain ribbon sewn onto durable nylon webbing and is available
in many color combinations to suite every pup’s personality. Coordinating Custom Dog Leashes are also available for purchase.

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.

Does Your Dog Do This? Dog Camouflages Self as Decorative Toss Pillow


funny dog photo. Vizsla dog on bed


..if…i…don't…move…maybe…they…think…me…be…pillow

There are no less than seven dog beds sprinkled throughout my home for my dogs Zazou, Kiki and The Schmoo.  Said dog beds are super plush, super cushy and situated in some of the most primo sunning spots in the house. However,  it has become increasingly apparent that one of my pack members is simply not satisfied with his designated accommodations.

Earlier this week, Zazou was nowhere to be found in the house or yard, despite numerous calls, claps and whistles. Slightly worried, I rushed through my bedroom to call again into the backyard when i noticed something was….. slightly out of place on my bed. 

And there he was… a 60 lb Vizsla successfully masquerading as a throw pillow. Hysterical!

Does your dog do this?

Does your dog try to camouflage themselves amongst your bed pillows or elsewhere in the house? If so, share your photos and tell us about it on our Muttropolis Facebook Fan Page!

Super Snuggling for your Furry Valentine

Does your dog or cat love to burrow into their bed? 

Is it not enough for your pet to lay atop your bed, but they instead must burrow under the covers of your bed?

Is your pet's idea of bliss settling into a warm basket of clean laundry?

Would your pet consider the interior of an Ugg Boot to be a suitable place to snooze?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the super plush Faux Fur Trundle Dog Bed has your pet's name all over it.  Created to mimic the luxurious softness of real fur, this versatile three way bed is made with faux mink fur and is embellished with darling pink hearts – perfect for your furry valentine!

Depending on pet`s mood, this bed can easily be transformed a teacup bed, a sleeping bag or an oval mat. My "niece" Lola the Chiweenie (Chihuahua mixed with a Dachsund) absolutely LOVES her trundle bed and truly tries to merge and become one with her cushy cuddle cup.

Snuggle up in a cuddle cup and your pet will thank you for it! Find the super snoozer Cuddle Cup burrow bed at at Muttropolis.com
