WHAT WE’RE DIGGIN’: Beat the Cold Weather Blues

winterchill

Whether you’re in Hawaii or in the East Coast’s Snowpacalpse, it’s COLD! Remember, you’re not the only one that needs to keep warm in the winter – your pup does too! Pups are just as sensitive to the weather as we are (if not more!). Don’t let the cool weather limit Bowser’s activity – go out there and play!

Keep your pup warm in that brisk weather with a fleece jacket or puffer vest! A fleece jacket that’s water resistant has a dual purpose – not only will it keep your dog nice and warm, but the outer shell is made with nylon – perfect for those walks in the rain! If your baby needs warmth over water-resistantance, then our best-seller fleece pullover will do the trick. It comes in an array of colors and is easy to pull on and take off, making it perfect if you need it on in a pinch! If you’re looking more for basic rainwear, then the reversible raincoat is ideal. Because it’s reversible, it’s basically like two raincoats in one! It’s hooded, making it the ultimate cover-up for rainy days. Another great addition to your pup’s winter wardrobe? Boots! Our Ruffwear Summit Trex Boots protect against salt or other snowmelt chemicals as well as protect against extreme temperatures. These boots keep moisture out of the paws and have great traction. It’s a win-win!

Another way to stay warm? Beds and blankets of course! Whether it be a super comfy throw, a cave bed (this could also work as an awesome hide-and-seek bed!) or a roll-up bed for comfort on the go, any type of soft and warm fabric is perfect for the cool weather!

Just because it’s cold and snowy out shouldn’t limit your fun outside. Now that you know how to keep warm, it’s time to go out and play! Check out the rest of our Winter Essentials Collection online or at any of our Muttropolis stores.

Take Your Dog to Work Day Done Right in Four Easy Steps

EditorSandy-thumb-608x482-23952

Numerous studies show that having a pet makes you happier and can even add years to your life.  We at Muttropolis know this, which is why we ALWAYS bring our dogs to work! There are endless positive paw-sabilities (har-har) to having a dog in the workplace, too – the International Journal of Workplace Health Management says that furry friends in the office can lead to lower stress levels among employees and boost morale. We love having our dogs in the office and frequently take breaks from staring at our computer screens to not only walk them, but pet them and kiss them as much as we can!

Take Your Dog to Work Day is celebrating its 15th year this Friday, June 20th, so why not bring your pup to the workplace? Here’s some tips to help you get the most out of Take Your Dog to Work Day:

 

1.       Create a Hospitable Environment

Everyone loves pets, but forewarning fellow employees of your plans of bringing your pup to work is always important, just in case someone has a pet allergy or you have any workers that are uncomfortable with the idea of having animals in the office. Once your plans are set, make sure to check out your office area, including:

  • Finding green space nearby for your pup to go to the bathroom (this is REALLY important – no one wants to have an accident on the work carpet!)
  • Bathing and grooming your pup before their debut, perhaps even dressing up your pup with designer dog collars or stylish dog apparel – why not!?
  • Eliminating or securing hazards such as poisonous plants, cleaners and electrical cords

 

2.       Bring a Doggie Bag

Just as you pack your lunch, be sure to bring all the necessary items for your dog. Food, treats, toys, poop bags and a leash are must-haves for the big day.

 

3.       Create a Comfort Zone

Make sure your work space if comfortable enough for your Bowser. To get your dog to love your work space, try to bring a bit of home to your office. Bringing a dog bed will make your dog feel like they’re at home! 

 

4.       Plan an Exit Strategy

Accidents tend to happen – that’s okay! Make sure to bring pet-friendly disinfectant just in case an accidents occur. You may want to be prepared to take your dog home just in case he’s not comfy in the office space. Discuss plans with a manager ahead of time to ensure you will be able to take your dog home if you need to. 

Take Your Dog to Work Day is a great way to introduce your co-workers to your furry best friend! By taking these few steps, you can ensure the day goes smoothly.

Can’t Wag Without: Estela and Reggie + Ricky

Estela

Meet Estela, one of our buyers at Muttropolis, and her pups, Regina and Ricky. Reggie is small and sassy, while Ricky is like a big teddy bear. These two are part of our modeling crew and wanted to share a few things they can’t wag without!

Reggie is your quintessential Jack Russell – busy, busy, busy! She loves going on walks, but gets a little too excited and pulls on the leash a lot. Her Buddy Belt not only is comfortable, but it eliminates pressure on Reggie’s tracheal area because of its unique step-in design. Buddy belts are genuine leather, so they are extremely long lasting – Reggie’s had hers for five years! Added bonus: once Reggie’s in the harness, she can’t get out, which is a good thing if she’s feeling feisty!

Reggie

Ricky is a fan of chews, with his favorite being the Braided Bully Stick. These all-natural, long-lasting chews are only made with one ingredient: free-range grass-fed cattle sourced from Brazil. The braided texture makes it perfect for maintaining oral health and encouraging good breath. But always keep an eye on your pups when they are gnawing any chew!  Ricky

Estela often changes Ricky and Reggie's collars, whether it's for product testing or just a new look so extra engravable ID tags are a must-have item. If they ever get out or wander away when traveling, the finder will have all your information and can let you know they have your pup.

Lastly, Reggie and Ricky could absolutely NEVER wag without their Bowsers Beds! Their matching beds have micro-velvet fabric and a high-memory polyester fiberfill inner cushion, making them super comfy and perfect for a good night’s sleep. The dog’s aren’t the only ones that love these beds – Estela loves these beds because washing them is a breeze – the cover unzips and can be either hand-washed or thrown in the washing machine!

The Seven Days of Pet Appreciation Week with Muttropolis

Pet Appreciation Week

One of our favorite weeks of the year is upon us: Pet Appreciation Week 2014!

There is everything to love about an entire weeklong celebration, spanning June 1 – 7, dedicated to the domesticated animal kingdom in its entirety – from canine to feline, equestrian to reptilian, arachnid and more!

Here at Muttropolis, dogs and cats take the admiration of our hearts, minds and spirits. Because of this admiration, and for business research purposes, we like to put ourselves in our pets’ paws for a bit and think from their perspectives. We feel this allows us to relate to them better and to understand them on a more four-legged level.

So, for this year’s Pet Appreciation Week, we went above and beyond! We decided to imagine the entire weeklong celebration from our dogs’ and cats’ perspectives!

What kind of toys and food do they really want? How bored are they playing the same old games? How should we, as their humans, go that extra mile to show love and affection?

After many days spent crawling around the office, howling and meowing along with our furry friends, we felt moved to create a song that captured their wants and needs. What you are about to read is both a declaration of appreciation and roadmap of how you, as your pet’s human, can make this year’s Pet Appreciation Week the best week ever!

Now, all of us here at Muttropolis would like to present:

“The Seven Days Of Pet Appreciation Week.”

A dog howls:

“On the first day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – A brand new retractable leash.

On the second day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Two stylish leather dog collars and a brand new retractable leash.

On the third day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Three new interactive dog toys, two stylish dog collars and a brand new retractable leash.

On the fourth day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Four kinds of all-natural dog food, three new interactive dog toys, two stylish dog collars and a brand new retractable leash.

On the fifth day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Five doggy t-shirts, four kinds of all-natural dog food, three new interactive dog toys, two stylish dog collars and a brand new retractable leash.

On the sixth day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Six recycled and eco-friendly dog products, five doggy t-shirts, four kinds of all-natural dog food, three new interactive dog toys, two stylish dog collar and a brand new retractable leash.

On the seventh day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Seven dog bed duvet covers, six recycled and eco-friendly dog products, five doggy t-shirts, four kinds of all-natural dog food, three new interactive dog toys, two stylish dog collars and a brand new retractable leash.”

Now, I know what you are thinking…What about…

A cat meows:

“On the first day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – A brand new litter box to pee.

On the second day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Two awesome cat toys, and a brand new litter box to pee.

On the third day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Three kinds of cat food, supplements and treats, two awesome cat toys and a brand new litter box to pee.

On the fourth day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Four new types of cat bowls, three kinds of cat food, supplements and treats, two awesome cat toys and a brand new litter box to pee.

On the fifth day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – A five-story cat condo, four new types of cat bowls, three kinds of cat food, supplements and treats, two awesome cat toys and a brand new litter box to pee.

On the sixth day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Six styles of colorful cat collars, a five-story cat condo, four new types of cat bowls, three kinds of cat food, supplements and treats, two awesome cat toys and a brand new litter box to pee.

On the seventh day of Pet Appreciation Week, my human gave to me – Seven cans of catnip, six styles of colorful cat collars, a five-story cat condo, four new types of cat bowls, three kinds of cat foods, supplements and treats, two awesome cat toys and brand new litter box to pee.”
