christmas

Calling Rudolph, Frosty, and all the usual suspects: Our Holiday Shop is here! We know that there’s a little more than a month left until Christmas, but we just couldn’t wait any longer to share our holiday items with you! This shops features everything any Christmas lover needs: festive apparel, red + green collars and leashes, toys that will drive your dog nuts, and even a few home needs!
Looking for something to spice up your dog’s closet? Look no further! We have a wide selection of casual wear including chunky knit sweaters, soft pajamas and tank dresses. If you’re looking for something more formal, we have an adorable ruffled Santa dress, a flashy red sequin harness and tasteful neckties for dogs of all sizes.

More interested in some sassy neckwear? We’ve got you covered. From jingle bells to bling to basics, we have collars that will make any dog feel like they’re ready for the holidays. If you’d rather recycle an old collar, the Santa collar cozy is the perfect choice – just slip the cozy through the old collar and voila! You have an adorable  holiday collar that is sure to get the party started.

Need some stocking stuffer ideas? Holiday toys are a must! For the interactive Bowser, the chimney and reindeer burrow toy is ideal – it is sure to keep your pup preoccupied for a good while! For those tough-toy lovers, the corduroy Rudolph knottie toy and extra tough holiday bear toy is a must. Although no toy is completely indestructible, these will hold up a good fight! If you’re looking for something cute (and can double as a decoration!), our ornament toys are perfect – with five different colors and patterns to choose from, you may feel tempted to decorate your whole tree with these gems!

As every holiday lover knows, the season isn’t complete without festive home décor! Whether it be a stocking for your pup, an ode to your pooch on the Christmas tree, or a nice snuggly blanket, adding décor dedicated to your four-legged member is adorable and stylish!

These are just the basics featured in our Holiday Collection. To get the full taste of it (there’s a lot we didn’t mention!), check out the collection on our website or in our three Southern California store locations. Happy Holidays!

LIFE @ MUTT: We’re Turning 84 this Year (in Dog Years)!!

Mutt Munchers

We are so proud to be part of the community for the last 12 years. It’s been an amazing journey from our original store in Solana Beach to growing through the recession to 3 stores and a fast growing website!  As a utopia for pets and their parents, we’ve met thousands of new furry friends and helped hundreds of dogs and cats find forever homes. To celebrate this monumental month, we’re introducing two limited edition flavors: Anniversary Dessert Mix and Anniversary Meat Lovers Mix. An added bonus? We’re offering our entire line of locally-made Mutt Munchers $3 off!

The Anniversary Dessert Mix contains our most popular dessert flavors: Blueberry, Ginger and Peanut Butter, and the Anniversary Meat Mix contains our most popular meat flavors: Bacon, Meatball and Liver. In addition to our Anniversary Blends, we are bringing back our Seasonal Flavors, including Pumpkin Pie and Crown Roast. Other flavors include: Peanut Butter, Blueberry, Ginger, Salmon, Bacon, Liver and Meatball.

These treats are made locally in Carlsbad, are grain and gluten free and include only all-natural, human-grade ingredients. Garbanzo beans take the place of grains, resulting in a tasty treat packed full of protein and dietary fiber. Each Mutt Muncher is about 18-19 calories and have an approximate 1 year shelf-life if the bag is completely sealed.

Why grain-free? Grains are a common allergy in dogs and can cause itchiness and other uncomfortable symptoms. Because grains take much longer to break down in the stomach, dogs often have trouble digesting them. Sticking with food and treats that are grain-free will make a positive impact on any pup’s health.

Delicious, nutritious and cost efficient, Mutt Munchers make a great addition to any dog’s diet! Visit us online or in one of our Southern California store locations to enjoy these Anniversary savings! Online customers can redeem their discount by entering MOREMUNCH at checkout.

Just In: Sock Monkey Styles for Your Pup!

Sock Monkey Collection

Here’s a little history lesson for you all: Sock Monkeys were first made during the Great Depression when people would sew red heeled socks together. Now, more than 80 years later, they’re just as fabulous and have been incorporated into a ton of things. With that being said, we’d like to introduce our newest collection: The Sock Monkey Collection!

With fall in full swing and winter on the horizon, sweaters and scarves are a must. This awesome zip-up hoody is sure to keep you warm AND comfortable, as it’s made with a cashmere blend! It’s definitely a mutt favorite. More into something a little lighter? The Sock Monkey Striped Wool Scarf is great because not only will it warm up your pup’s neck, but it’s adjustable, insuring a perfect fit! With these items, you’ll be turning Bowser into your very own Sock Monkey in no time!

Why not rock the Sock Monkey on your daily walk? We won’t object to that! In fact, we encourage it with our Sock Monkey collar, leash and bowtie. If you’re looking into dressing your dog from neck to tail, this is perfect, as each item completely matches! If you’re more into the subtle Sock Monkey flair, then you have the ability to choose which item you like best. We love options!

Of course, this collection wouldn’t be complete with Sock Monkey toys! From multi-colored to corduroy to sock-made cat toys to the original Sock Monkey, we have enough Sock Monkey toys for you to fill your toy box to the rim!

Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried dinner patties provide 100% complete and balanced nutrition. Each flavor is made with raw meat, poultry or fish that is sourced from USDA-inspected facilities, mixed with organic fruits and vegetables included. Healthful, direct-fed microorganisms (probiotics), natural tocopherols, chelated trace minerals, taurine, and essential FreezeDFamily_RGBvitamins and minerals are also added to this yummy mix. These patties come in 8 different flavors: Chicken & Veggies, Beef, Lamb, Duck, Surf ‘N Turf, Rabbit, Venison and Pheasant and are grain-free with no fillers, artificial preservatives, colorings, added hormones, antibiotics, sugar or salt. Not only is this a great meal for your pup, but you can break up a patty and make it a nice yummy treat!

The savings don’t stop there! During October, you’ll also be able to save 20% on Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried treats, Carnivore Crunch and Carnivore Kisses. The Carnivore Crunch treats are all-natural formed morsels while the Carnivore Kisses are diced, 100% meat treats.

The Carnivore Crunch treats come in Beef, Chicken, Turkey, Salmon/Cod and Duck flavors. The Carnivore Kisses treats come in Beef, Chicken, Salmon and Duck. Just like the freeze-dried food, these treats provide the benefits of raw with the convenience of being dry.

So what does freeze-drying exactly mean, you ask? Freeze-drying is a process that enables food manufacturers to remove the moisture from their products while retaining nutritional value. There is no cooking is involved in this process, as the product is frozen and then put into a freeze dryer on rIMG_4439trays. These trays are placed on shelves that receive very low levels of heat. Powerful pumps inside the freeze dryer generate very cold temperatures and create a vacuum, and that heat applied to the shelves causes the ice within the meat to turn directly into water vapor, skipping the liquid stage altogether. This takes the product from frozen to freeze-dried without ever being thawed or cooked, which is why the nutritional value is retained.

You don’t want to miss out on this delicious and nutritious Treat of the Month! This special runs from October 1st through October 31st at all three of our stores and online. Use code STELLA20 at checkout to save!

Tips for the Stroller Pup

Our furry friends are just another member of the family and we want to take them everywhere. Some dogs have a hard time keeping up because they are small, getting older or the summer heat makes the
asphalt so hot it can be dangerous for them to walk on sidewalks all day. We recommend you let your pup ride in style…with a stroller!

  • Using a stroller will keep your elderly pup from getting tired and will help them feel more energetic during the day
  • Strollers are a great alternative to carriers. Carriers can put a lot of strain on your back, neck
    and shoulders, whereas a stroller adds zero pressure to your body
  • Strollers keep your pup off the hot ground, preventing paws from injuries such as burns and cracking
  • Strollers don’t have to be used all the time – you can walk your pup until they get tired and pop them in the stroller for a good nap while you finish your daily duties

First Class Jogger StrollerThe First Class Jogger is a “Mutt Tested and Approved” favorite. This Jogger comes with a soft, comfy pad for your pup to lay on while looking outside the mesh windows during the daily stroll. Large
wheels have suspension for a completely smooth ride and rear tires have lockable breaks. The Jogger also comes with a large basket underneath for storage. You can find this stroller and more at any of our store locations or online. “Stroll” away!
