MUTT’S NEW: K9 Natural Tripe – What is it?!

Have you ever heard of tripe? We hadn’t either until our friends at K9 Natural introduced it to us. Tripe is the stomach lining of grazing animals (including lamb and beef) and is loaded with digestive enzymes, gastric juices, amino acids and natural probiotics. It may not sound appetizing to us, but dogs sure love tripe!

 

Whether you feed your dog Freeze Dried Raw Lamb Tripe SuperFood or sprinkle the Beef Tripe Food Topper over kibble, your pooch will reap all the benefits of tripe. Tripe improves metabolism, removes toxins, boosts the immune system, cleans teeth and aids development of bones, teeth and muscle. Because it’s so highly palatable and improves your dog’s health, it’s great for picky dogs, dogs with stomach or skin issues, dogs currently eating raw or are in the process of transitioning. Tripe is described as nature’s “super food” and we couldn’t agree more! Want to test out lamb tripe for yourself? Stop by our stores in Solana Beach and La Jolla or search “K9 Natural” on our website to learn more!

MUTT’S HAPPENING: Take Your Dog to Work Day!

Take Your Dog to Work Day is just a few days away on Friday, June 23rd – are you ready?! Taking your four-legged best friend to work may be one of the best things ever, but you need to make sure you are prepared. Here are some ideas on how to keep your pooch happy while they’re at the office:

  1. Bring familiar items to the office with you. When bringing your dog to work, bring Bowser’s favorite bed or blanket. Not only will this give your pooch a comfy place to rest while you work, but the familiar scent will help calm Bowser down in an unfamiliar place.
  2. Keep them preoccupied. Whether it be a long-lasting chew or a toy, having something your dog can preoccupy themselves with while you’re working is key. The dogs at Mutt HQ LOVE the Earth Animal Dog Chews, as they are not only long-lasting, but they are packed with flavor!
  3. Make sure they are nice and clean! A clean dog is a happy dog, and your co-workers will be happy to love on a clean dog, too! Treat your pup to a bath or give them a fresh scent with some Buddy Splash deodorizer so they are ready to take on their big office debut.
  4. Treat yourself to our Yappy Hour when the day is over! Stop by our Solana Beach store on Friday, June 23rd from 4-6PM for a special Take Your Dog to Work Day Yappy Hour! Sydnee’s Grooming will be on site offering grooming services, we’ll have refreshments for both you and your dog, and our friends at Helen Woodward will be accepting food donations! You won’t want to miss this fun event full of playing and socialization!

 

MUTT’S UP: 5 Ways to Spoil Your Furry Valentine

Girl Holding Dog at the Park in Summer

Valentine’s Day is near, which makes us ask the question: who’s your valentine this year? Ours (naturally) are our four-legged friends, our pets! Valentine’s Day is a way to show our loved ones how much we care about them, and we thought of five different ways to spoil your pup this Valentine season:

1. Snuggle it up. If you told us that a dog didn’t like a hug, we’d call you a liar. On Valentine’s Day, give your pup extra hugs, kisses and snuggles – after all, dogs are the most loving animals!

2. Take Bowser for a trip. Whether it be the dog park, an extended walk in the neighborhood or a road trip, give your dog the gift of excitement and fun of an adventure!

3. Hook your pup up with treats. When humans exchange Valentines, there’s normally some sort of candy involved – why not give your pup their own candy?! Spoil Bowser with treats today!

4. Take your pooch out to dinner. There’s nothing like a date night with your dog! There are tons of dog-friendly restaurants (especially in San Diego!) that even offer a special menu for your pooch!

5. Score some goods from the Valentine’s Collection. Whether it be a heart-filled sweater or a cute heart-eye emoji toy, there’s something for every furry Valentine!

We hope these ideas help you celebrate your best Valentine’s yet with your pooch!

We’re in the midst of summer, which means it is HOT out there. Although we love this weather, sometimes the heat is unbearable. We can help cool PED-COOL-HRNyour pup (and you!) off this summer with our Summer Essentials Collection!

One easy way to keep your dog cool during the rising temperatures is to have something cooling on their body. Things that can be frozen like the kooling collar, the cooling harness and the cooling bandana are an easy way to keep Bowser from overheating. Something like the cool pet pad is ideal for those that are constantly hot, as this pressurized pad cools your pup down as soon asKIN-HYDRO-BALL they lay down.

Have a dog that loves to play? Drop toys in water and freeze them for the ultimate playing experience! Toys like the chuckit ball, the hydro flyer and the freezable “fruit” are waterproof, floatable and freeze in a breeze!

RIN-RINSEKITOne of our favorite ways for dogs (and us) to keep cool is with the RinseKit. This pressurized shower is portable and gives you four minutes of non-stop spraying, making it a great way to rinse everyone off after a day at the beach or to spray on a hot day.
This quick and easy to fill shower doesn’t need any electricity to work, which is even more handy!
