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!

Halloween LOLz: Our Favorite Dog Halloween Costumes!

Ah, Halloween! It’s the one day each year where scaring people, getting a sugar high and dressing up in a costume is socially acceptable. Dogs do the first two things on a daily basis, and when it comes to October, the third thing is taken to a whole new level. If you didn’t know, dressing your pup up in a Halloween costume is totally a “thing” and people pull out ALL the stops. Need a visual? We’ve got 10 for ya.

Exhibit 1: The “Wrecking Pug”

Miley Cyrus’ ball has nothing on this pug. We give this costume an A+ – I mean, look at the Barbie riding the ball!

Exhibit 2: The “Yorkie Piñata”

Pinata

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whatever you do, do NOT hit this piñata with a bat. Instead, pet it!

This is the definition of “Too Cute to Eat!” The best part? The popcorn on the head of course!

Exhibit 6: The “EP (Extra-pugrestrial)”

ET

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the easiest costume to re-create: grab a white towel and your bike! Oh wait – I guess you need a pug…

Exhibit 7: The “Dirty Dogtini”

Martini

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is your pup in a cone? No problem – just add a cocktail shaker and some “olives” and you’ve got a dirty dog-tini! You’re welcome.

Exhibit 8: The “Mr. T(dog)”

We saved the best for last – this family is special to us as they are part of our Mutt Clan! We give them an A+ for dedication – not only are the parents involved, but they’ve got the DOGS in there!!!!!! We are obsessed. As Buzz Lightyear (our version of a superhero) would say – “To infinity and beyond!”

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!
