Wag Worthy Ways to Show Your Pup Some Love

Valentine's Day

Just one week ‘til Valentine’s Day, do you have something prepared for your pup? Whether you answered yes or no, here are a few excellent ideas to show your forever friend their special place in your heart.

Take a scenic walk. How does that saying go…variety is the spice of life! Instead of taking your usual stroll, cruise around your neighborhood in a different direction with your four-legged friend, or jump in the car and explore a new park, beach or trail. Your pup will enjoy the change of scenery and additional quality time with you.

Arrange a play date. Catching up with a friend over a cup of Joe, afternoon stroll, or evening on the town always leaves you feeling happier, right? Well pups love time with friends too! If your dog plays nicely with other dogs, invite another friendly pup over for a play date or set up a walk together. Socialization is great for dogs, especially with the additional exercise that comes with playtime.

Dog Play Date

Make them a new toy. If your pup loves playtime then adding new toys to their collection is a great way to keep them entertained. But another, environmentally friendly option is to make a new tug and toss worthy toy with old scraps of fabric. Old clothes, sheets, towels, whatever you have that can be saved from landing in the trash will work. Simply cut your fabric into strips, braid together and tie a knot at each end. Voila, your pup gets a new toy and you get green points!

All NaturalUpgrade their diet. Just like us, our pups can feel the effects of different foods. Reading labels is a great habit to make. Foods with little to no chemical preservatives and fewer processed ingredients are without a doubt going to provide your pup with better digestion and overall health. This doesn’t mean sacrificing taste, as many all-natural dog foods are not only nutritious, but delightfully delicious! Remember that any diet change should be introduced gradually to allow the digestive system to adjust.

Update their furnishings. Sleeping and eating are staples in every dog’s daily routine. Let’s start with the latter. Meal time may be most dogs’ favorite time of the day, so show your pup some love by letting them dine in style! A new bowl, feeder or treat jar would all fit the bill. But second to dining, or maybe even more enjoyed, is snoozing. There are an abundance of dog bed options on the market, so rest assured with our tips on how to pick the perfect dog bed for your pup.

Dog Sleeping

Give them a massage. Pamper your pup with a good massage, it will promote healing and bonding! It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, and an easy internet search will provide some tips on technique. Canine massage has been shown to increase circulation, reduce stress levels, and decrease muscle pain. Just stay aware of signs of discomfort and non-compliance to ensure it is an enjoyable experience for your four-legged friend.

Lavish them in green grooming. Clean is a great feeling, whether you’re furry or not. Have you ever seen a pup run around with glee after getting a bath? They love the refreshing feeling, but sometimes they aren’t so fond of the process. Many dogs have dry skin and allergies, so selecting gentle grooming products that are free of harsh chemicals is a must. Whether you are your pup’s groomer or you drop them off at the spa, be sure the products applied are safe and health friendly.

Dog Grooming

Ensure their safety. Saying goodbye to someone you love is hard, and in some cases, canine especially, can be avoided. Your pup should always wear a dog collar and ID tag, that way in the unfortunate event that they get lost the finder can reunite them with you. Many pet owners like to take their safety processions a step further and get their dog micro chipped. Part of loving your pup is keeping them safe!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your furry friends from Muttropolis!

Get Back to the Basics for Your Pup

Now that we’re all back in the swing of things, with New Years festivities behind us, it’s a great time to get back to basics! To us, basics are those things you wouldn’t want to, or shouldn’t have to, live without. So what would those basics be for your pup? Worry not, because we’ve got you covered with four categories that are important in maintaining your pup’s happiness, health and safety.

Dog ToysDog Grooming

Toys – Having fun is definitely a basic need, so be sure your pup has the right kind of toys to keep their endorphins up! Our vast assortment includes plush, interactive, toss and retrieve, tough, rubber, and funny dog toys. With an array of options, you’re sure to find at least a few your pup will fancy, tempting them to up their playtime.

Grooming – Every dog gets dirty, so grooming supplies are essential to keep your pup feeling fresh, smelling good and staying clean. Our grooming supplies include dog shampoos, conditioners, sprays and more. We recently started carrying BASS brushes, an excellent choice to aid you in keeping your pup’s coat tangle free. For nearly 30 years, BASS has designed, produced and sold the finest professional hairbrushes, and now they’ve created an innovative line of pet grooming brushes. And don’t forget about dental care. Keeping your pet’s gums healthy reduces bacteria and helps to keep them infection free. Dog toothbrushes and toothpaste are must-haves, but dental dog treats and dental dog toys are also excellent supplemental ways to fight plaque.

Dog DiningDog Collars

Dining – Food is an undeniable basic, a staple, an essential for a healthy life, and much like us, our pets have evolved to enjoy their meals served in some sort of bowl or feeder. Our dining department is stocked with dog bowls, raised dog feeders, treat jars and dog placemats. When determining which style is right for your pup, consider height. Raised feeders and bowls are recommended by veterinarians as they help your pup not to gulp down their food, thereby reducing air intake, and you guessed it, air outtake

Collars – We recommend regular walks to keep your pup fit and full of life, and what’s needed for a walk? A dog collar of course! Without a collar you can’t attach a leash, or an engravable pet tag, another basic we recommend to keep your pet safe. Whether your four-legged friend is big or small, likes to pull or keeps a calm pace, is a fashionista or prefers to look classic, our dog collar assortment includes just the right collar to meet their needs and suit their personality.

We could go on and on about other beneficial basics, but you get the gist. Visit us in-store or online to shop for these, and other, essentials for your pup. We’d love to help your pup get back to basics!
