Dig This Deal: Save 25% On Mutt Munchers During the Month of November!

Muttropolis Mutt Munchers
Our much
loved Mutt Munchers are the Treat of the Month for November!
Delicious, nutritious and made fresh in Southern
California, these grain-free dog treats, exclusive to Muttropolis,
are 25% off all month long. And our very popular seasonal flavors, Crown Roast
and Pumpkin Pie, have arrived just in time for the savings!

Salmon Snappers Mutt MunchersAvailable
in a wide variety of flavors, Mutt Munchers are sure to compliment any pup’s
dietary needs and preferences. Year round we carry Peanut Butter, Blueberry,
Salmon Snappers, Bacon Bites, Liver Lovers, and Meatball.
All flavors are grain-free and include only all natural, human-grade
ingredients. Garbonzo beans take the place of grain, resulting in a tasty treat
that is packed with protein and a good source of dietary fiber.

Why choose
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.

One of our loyal
Muttropolis customers described her and her pup’s happiness with the Pumpkin
Pie Mutt Munchers
as such:


Peanut Butter Poppers Mutt MunchersMy dog absolutely loves these
treats! I almost want to eat one for myself they smell so good! I love the fact
that they are grain free and all the ingredients used to make them are
something I would eat myself. My pup gives these 2 thumbs up!

Delicious,
nutritious and cost efficient, Mutt Munchers are a great addition to any dog’s
diet! So don’t miss out, they are only on sale from November 1st
through November 30th. Online customers can redeem their 25% off
savings by shopping online at Muttropolis.com
and entering MUNCHSAVE at
checkout. This promotion is also being offered at all three Southern California
Muttropolis store locations.

October is National Adopt-A-Dog Month!

Adopt-A-Dog Month

The best way to honor Adopt-A-Dog
Month
is by adopting a dog in need! Choose a pup from a shelter or rescue
group and you’ll save a life, save money, find a healthy pet, help in the fight
against puppy mills and pet stores, and feel better! A while back we posted some
excellent tips on how to get started,
and choosing the right pet.

Live near a Muttropolis store? Then you’re in luck! For the
month of October, we’ll be hosting
multiple adoptions
every weekend in each of our three Southern
California stores. We’ve included the dates and times for each of
these adoptions below. As a congratulations and thank you, we’ll be providing
every dog that is adopted at one of our events with a Muttropolis “wag bag,”
filled with goodies to enjoy with their new family.




Save A LifeAs some of you may know, Muttropolis is an “Animal Admirer”
for the San Diego Humane Society.
We’ve already admired two pups that have found loving homes, and recently
received our newest animal to admire, Huxley. He’s a male American Pit Bull Terrier
Mix, a staff favorite, and extremely smart after having undergone extensive
training for etiquette, housetraining and tricks. He loves to perform
and thrives in active, athletic environments like the dog park. Huxley is just
over 7 years old and neutered. For more information about handsome Huxley and
the adoption process at the San Diego Humane Society, visit his profile. The video of him showing off his skills will
win you over right away!Huxley is featured in many of the images below.

No matter how you choose to adopt, whether from a shelter,
rescue group, or someone you know, there is one thing we know for sure,
every
dog "can't wag without"
 
these
essentials:

Collar & Leash

Essentials
for safety, and don’t forget a personalized tag!


Dog CollarEvery dog needs a collar
and leash for walks, to hold their identification tag(s), and to show of their
personal style! Our wide collar assortment includes color, fabric and style
options for each and every canine customer, most with coordinating leashes. And
to keep your pup safe in the unfortunate event that they ever get lost, an
engravable tag is a must-have too. We have over 100 one-of-a-kind styles to
choose from!

Bed

Whether they
like to snuggle up or stretch out!


Dog BedLet’s face it, dogs
sleep a lot, so having a comfortable, well-crafted bed is something each
four-legged fur ball should have. We carry all of the top selling designer and
luxury dog beds included square bolstered, donut, double donut, pillow,
outdoor, mats, blankets, duvets and more! Options to accommodate every pup’s
sleeping preferences and home décor.

Bowls or Feeders

For
feasting, one of their favorite times of the day!


Raised Dog FeederWe believe that dogs should
dine in style. To accommodate for differing design preferences, we have classic
ceramic bowls, sleek stainless steel feeders, contemporary wooden designs, and
much more! Why do we love raised feeders? With their elevated ergonomic design,
they aid in digestion, preventing pups from eating too quickly and suffering
from the uncomfortable side-effects.

Toys

Plush,
rubber, tough, interactive, there are toys for every pup’s playing preferences!


Dog ToysToys are like good
friends, the more the merrier! We have unique toys for pup’s that love plush,
enjoy playing fetch, need something interactive to eliminate boredom, or play
so hard they need a toy build tough! Keep your new addition entertained and
you’re sure to have a much easier transition and happier pup.

Training Tools

Essentials
when bringing a new pup home!


Training ToolsA well trained dog is
a happy dog, so be sure to stay in control when you bring your new pup home. Effective
dog training tools that are safe and humane make this much easier! Dog crates, training collars, no-pull harnesses, potty pads and anti-bark
products, can all be lifesavers in establishing a safe and secure environment.

Treats

Great for
nutrition, training, and the obvious… rewarding!




Stella & Chewy's Carnivore CrunchKeep it all-natural!
We have done the research on dog nutrition so that you don’t have to. All of
our treats are all-natural, easily digestible, preservative-free, wholesome and
delicious. And best of all, each month we offer a special promotion on a Treat
of the Month
, this month it is Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried dog treats.
Buy 2, get 1 free for the whole month of October!

Can’t adopt for one reason or another? Pet finder provides
some ways you can still help.

Dig This Deal: Stella & Chewy’s Freeze-Dried Food & Treats are on Sale!

Stella & Chewy

It’s time
for another Treat of the Month sale,
and like last month we’re extending our promotion to not only include treats,
but food too! This means that all Stella
& Chewy’s
freeze-dried varieties are on sale for the whole month of
October! Customers can enjoy 20% off Stella & Chewy’s food, and a Buy 2,
Get 1 Free incentive for Stella & Chewy’s treat purchases.

Stella's Super Beef DinnerStella
& Chewy’s freeze-dried food provides 100%
complete and balanced nutrition
. Each variety is made from naturally-raised
meat, poultry or fish, all sourced from USDA-inspected facilities, with organic
fruits and vegetables included. Cranberries, carrots, apples, spinach, broccoli
and beets are a few ingredients often found in Stella & Chewy’s food. Healthful,
direct-fed microorganisms (probiotics), natural tocopherols, chelated trace
minerals, taurine, and essential vitamins and minerals are also added.
Discerning pups can choose from Beef, Chicken, Duck and Goose, Lamb, Surf ‘N
Turf, Venison and Rabbit. All varieties are grain-free with no fillers,
artificial preservatives, colorings, added hormones, antibiotics, sugar or
salt. More specific nutrition
information
can be found on our website. With the benefits of raw food and
the convenience of dry food, Stella & Chewy’s is an excellent choice for
canines and their owners!

Chicken Carnivore KissesWe carry
two all-natural, freeze-dried Stella & Chewy’s treat options, Carnivore
Crunch and Carnivore Kisses. Carnivore Crunch treats are all-natural formed
morsels and Carnivore Kisses are diced, all meat treats. Both can be given
whole as a training reward or
crumbled over food at meal times for added
flavor and nutrition
. Crunch comes in Beef, Chicken, Salmon and Duck, and Kisses
in Beef, Chicken and Duck. Like Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried food, these
treats also provide the benefits of raw with the convenience of being dry.

Not familiar
with freeze-drying? It is a process that enables food manufacturers to remove
the moisture from their products while retaining nutritional value. Duck Carnivore CrunchNo cooking
is involved in this process. The product is first frozen and then put into a
freeze dryer on trays. The 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. 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
every being thawed or cooked, which is why the nutritional value is retained.

Our Treat of the Month promotions on Stella
& Chewy’s freeze-dried food and treats runs from October 1st
through October 31st. Stop in to one of our Southern
California store locations
or visit us online to save! Online customers can redeem these special offers at
Muttropolis.com by using the code STELLA for 20% off food and CHEWY for the Buy 2, Get 1 Free treat incentive.

Dig This Deal: Save 20% on New Orijen Treats!

It’s that
time again! At the beginning of each month we announce our new Treat of the Month promotion. For the
whole month of July we’ll be offering 20% off Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats. We’ve long carried dog and cat food
varieties from this trusted pet food source, but their freeze-dried treats are
brand new to our assortment and we hope you’re just as excited as we are!

Freeze-Dried Dog Treats

We carry a
variety of flavors including Original, Regional Red, Alberta Wild Boar, Broke
Lake Duck
, Black Angus Beef, Free-Range Bison and Ranch Raised Lamb, options to
compliment any pup’s dietary needs and preferences. All flavors are grain-free
and include only 100% all-natural ingredients sourced regionally near Orijen’s
headquarters in Alberta, Canada. Each
variety is gently freeze-dried to lock in the life-giving nutrition and amazing
flavors of the ingredients. No cooking or preservatives are used to create
these treats. Delicious, nutritious, and competitively priced, Orijen Freeze-Dried
Dog Treats make a great addition to any dog’s diet.

Orijen Varieties

Why choose
freeze-dried treats? For many years, freeze-drying has been regarded as the
highest standard of food preservation. Unlike conventional pet foods which are
cooked at high temperatures, Orijen’s freeze-dried treats and food are prepared
without cooking, which is what allows them to retain the natural properties of
their fresh ingredients. The freeze-drying process begins with a flash-freeze
to lock in the goodness. Then, at an extremely low temperature, the 18-hour freeze-drying
process converts any frozen water in the ingredients into vapor without
creating a liquid form. This means that only H20 is removed and ensures that
the treats and food retain all of their life-giving nutrients, amino acids,
digestive enzymes and taste. Although freeze-drying is costly, it’s the only
way to preserve meat without chemicals, irradiation, or heat damage to
nutrition.

When served freeze-dried food and treats, dogs are able to receive
all of the benefits and nourishment of a raw diet, just as mother-nature
intended.

Why choose
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.

Our Treat of the Month promotion on Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats runs from
July 1st to July 31st, so act fast and visit us online or
in stores to enjoy these sizzling savings! Online customers can redeem this
special 20% offer at Muttropolis.com by using the code ORJ20 during checkout.
