What We’re Digging: Collars Here, Collars There, Collars Everywhere!

Save on Collars and Leashes

Here at Muttropolis, we think of collars like women think of shoes – you can never have too many! Because of this, we make sure to bring you the latest and greatest in collars, searching high and low for new fabrics, prints and sizes for every personality.

Our variety of collar styles and sizes is ridiculously large, ranging from glitzy leather collars to training martingale collars to basic collars for your teacup-sized pup. We like to have a wide array of styles for our customers to choose from, but that doesn’t mean that we just pick any collar to add to our collection. We make sure all collars are the best of the best in design and quality.

Because we have so many collars, we have them blocked in different sections on our site so that it’s easy for you to find exactly what collar you are looking for. Fabric + Nylon Collars include fabric collars with fun designs, while the Stripes, Plaids + Solid Fabric Collars include just that, fabric collars with stripes, plaids or solids in the design. Leather Collars include any collars that are leather, from plain soft leather to stud-filled leather, while Sparkle Collars include leather collars that have crystals and anything flashy (and sassy!). For the training pup, we have a special Training Collars, including martingale and gentle leaders. Our Teacup Dog Collars section is tailor-made for the small dog crew. Lastly, for the night walkers, we have a Lighted or Reflective Collars + Leashes section, featuring light-up collars from our friends at Pup Protector as well as reflective leashes.

Collars Galore

Now that we’ve got you covered on what collars we offer, your next question might be “How do I know what size collar my dog wears?” To answer this question, we go back to our blog post from last year, “The Pursuit of the Perfect Collar:” For the ideal fit, you will want to allow for one to three fingers to fit between the collar and your dog’s neck, depending on your dog’s size. So, when you measure your pup’s neck, be sure to place the appropriate number of fingers underneath the measuring tape to find the true size. Below is a breakdown of how many fingers we advise according the size of the dog:

Small Size Dog (20 pounds or less) – 1 finger’s width
Medium / Average Sized Dog – 2 finger’s width
Extra Large Dog – 3 finger’s width

Now that you know what size your pup is, it’s time to shop! Here’s an added bonus: get 10% off when you purchase a collar/leash set! Use code WALK10 at checkout to save. Shop away!

Gear up for Summer!

Gear up for Summer

Bring on the heat! Although summer is the ample time for vacations and fun, it can get a little warm. Dogs, like humans, need to keep cool when the heat is blaring. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up the best products to keep your pup cool and happy!

When deciding what kind of apparel to fit your dog in during the warm weather, we recommend something that will cool their body. The ICool Vest is perfect for the warm weather – all you have to do is dip the vest in water, wring it out and you’re good to go! For those that have a dog that loves to swim, we recommend checking out the Float Coat – it’s the pups’ version of a life jacket!

ICool Vest  Ruffwear Float Coat

If you’d rather have your dog go without apparel this summer, there are some other ways to keep your pet safe from the sun and heat. Doggles are the perfect dog sunglasses and have 100% UV protection, promising protection of your furry BFF’s eyes. If you love to walk your pup, but are nervous about the heat of the cement, then dog boots may be your life saver! Not only do these boots keep moisture out, but the outsole protects and locks out dirt and debris while keeping your pup’s feet from burning.

Doggles  Ruffwear Dog Boots

Another way to cool down is (what else?) to play in the pool! We have some floatable toys like Loopies and Discs that will provide hours of fun in the sun while keeping cool! Another great toy to keep your pup cool is the Chilly Bone. The bone can be frozen multiple times and freezes in only an hour!

   Floating Disc Toy  Chilly Bone Toy

For those that are planning a road trip, pup water breaks are a must. To help keep your pup hydrated and reduce the bulk packaging of normal dog bowls, we have the Gulpy water dispenser, conveniently shaped in a water bottle, and bowls that are made to fit your car’s cup holder.

 Gulpy Water Dispenser  To Go Travel Dog Bowl

As we all know, fleas love to make an appearance during the summer. We offer a few different remedies to get rid of fleas, ranging from sprays to wipes to shampoos to supplements.
