MUTT’S UP: BACK TO SCHOOL BLUES

school-blues

Empty Nest Syndrome for dogs? It’s true! While the kids and parents are excited about heading back to school, the four-legged family members may not share the same joy.

They’ve had a summer of fun with their human brothers and sisters, and now they have to leave – wouldn’t you be sad too? Professor Nicholas Dodman from Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine told the Today Show that at least one in six dogs and numerous cats will show symptoms of separation anxiety after the kids go back to school. What are these symptoms, you might ask? They’re easy to spot once you realize what they are: chewing furniture, ripping the stuffing out of pillows, going to the bathroom in the house, obsessive barking/whining and shredding paper are just a few, according to Banfield Pet Hospital. How do you reduce this stress? We have a few ideas:

  1. Avoid emotional departures and greetings. Teach your kids to avoid over stimulating your pup at these times.
  2. Plan to exercise Bowser before you leave and always make a calm exit.

atlantisKeeping your pet comfortable or preoccupied is a great way to beat Bowser Boredom. Consider a few of these tools to help you and your pet:

  1. Crate/Crate Cover/Crate Mattress: A crate is the safest place for your pup to be when you’re out. Adding a mattress keeps them more comfortable and a crate cover simulates the feeling of a den which makes it a calm and peaceful setting.rIMG_4560
  2. Bed: If they’re not crate-trained, a bed is a great option. Beds with bolsters that surround your dog give a feeling
    of security. Choose a pillow bed if your dog likes to sprawl out.
  3. rphoto-3Gate: Letting your pup have free roam of the house can be dangerous if curiosity gets the best of them and they get into something that can be harmful. Choose a dog-proof room in the house that gives them enough space to move around and can fit a water bowl and bed.
  4. Interactive toys: Although no toy is completely indestructible, a sturdy toy or an interactive treat-releasing toy will give notrIMG_5538 (1) only stimulate your pup’s brain, but will keep them preoccupied! You know your dog best, we don’t recommend leaving toys with puppies or dogs that are tough chewers.
  5. BabyBark2Bark Collar: Our Citronella or Air spray bark collars are a safe and humane way to correct your dog when barking. The spray is released once the dog barks to interrupt the behavior.
  6. Thundershirt: If your pup gets excited or scared when you are in the process of leaving, try the Thundershirt. thundershirtOriginally invented for dogs that are scared of loud noises, the Thundershirt can be used anytime a dog is feeling anxious.  The burrito-like constant pressure that the shirt gives your pup gives them a feeling of security and calms them down.
  7. rIMG_0888Pet Calm Drops:  This all-natural remedy settle nerves and reduce anxiety prior to any stress-enhancing event. Add a few drops to their water each morning.

Take these steps to prevent your pup from separation anxiety and back to school time will be a breeze for you and your pup!

Our favorites include a camo dress with pink accents and rhinestones, a camo hoody with rhinestones and a fabulous pink and green camo collar and leash!

MUTTROPOLIS DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: Molly Mutt

Molly Mutt logo

Beginning with our first store over 10 years ago, our goal has been to find the most unique and stylish pet products out there. We enjoy high quality and high design for ourselves, so why can’t our pets?! A few years ago, we discovered Molly Mutt, an eco-friendly and anything but ordinary dog bedding company.

amsterdamLocated in Northern California, Molly Mutt uses fun, eccentric fabrics to create dog bed duvet covers, dog crate covers + more. Molly’s duvet covers are the perfect way to recycle an old dog bed or make your own. How do you make your own? It’s easy – stuff the sack with old blankets, pillows, towels, anything you have lying around, zip it up and throw a cover on! Not only is this eco-friendly, but because she has so many different covers to choose from, you can switch it up whenever you want! Whether it be an outdoor cover for sleeping outside in the cooler months or a fashionable cover to spice up your living room décor, Molly has it. Another added bonus? These covers are machine washable, making cleaning a breeze!18985-DEFAULT-l

As if a duvet cover wasn’t enough, Molly also has coordinating crate covers for those pups that are still in crates. Crate covers are perfect if you want to give your pup some privacy, as they roll down, or if you want to add a touch of style to a basic wire crate.

We love Molly Mutt and can’t wait to see what they have for us in the future! To check out all of Molly Mutt’s fun items, check out our website.

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.
