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!

Our Eco-Friendly Collection for Dogs and Cats

Puppy on a globeHappy Earth Day everyone! With an ever increasing abundance of eco-friendly products
and services across industries, it is no surprise that planet friendly pet products
and practices are also on the rise. We here at Muttropolis are very proud to offer a wide, and always expanding,
assortment of eco-friendly pet products.
It is our hope to help reduce carbon pawprints by providing pets with organic dog toys, collars and leashes, biodegradable poop bags and
eco-friendly pet beds, just to name a few!

In honor of Earth Day, and in an effort to educate pet
parents and promote the reduction of carbon pawprints, we’ve put together this
short list of eco-friendly suggestions:

1)      
Get rid of pet junk food. Since nutrition is essential for optimum pet health, it is
important to look for natural and organic pet foods, free of artificial and
genetically engineered ingredients and additives. Look for meat sources that
are raised in sustainable, humane conditions. Many pet food brands include
reconstituted animal by-products, essentially low-grade wastes that humans
wouldn’t touch, let alone eat. At Muttropolis, we carry a large variety of
safe, All Natural Dog Food (including Dehydrated varieties), All Natural Dog Treats, Natural Dog Supplements, and a small assortment
of All Natural Cat Food and Treats as
well.

Poopbags2)      
Pick up poop the biodegradable way. Use
biodegradable bags to pick up your pet’s poop so that it doesn’t live in a
plastic bag at the bottom of a landfill, lasting for hundreds of years to come.
We carry eco-friendly poop pick-up bags, some more eco-friendly than others, with White Compostable Pick-up Bags at the
top of the environmentally friendly list. They are made from 100% renewable
resources, protecting the environment by degrading in as little as 40 days.

3)      
Spoil your pet with sustainable products. Saving the planet can be fun for
your pets too! Choose products that are made from recycled materials or
sustainable fibers. Hemp is a great choice, as it is one of the most abundantly
occurring crops in nature and makes super-strong fabric. Check out our Hemp Star Dog Collar and Leash set that was seen on the CBS
Early Show, or the popular Eco Nap
Recycled Fleece Dog Mat
, made from 85% recycled plastic soda bottles! Our sustainable
product assortment doesn’t stop there, with many more toys and beds that are
made from recyclable fibers, or made to be recycled.

4)      
Choose natural pet care and cleaning products. We carry quite a few grooming products
that are all natural and free of harsh chemicals, such as Richard’s Organics Deodorant Dog Shampoo and Petkin’s Eco Bamboo Pet Wipes and Eye Wipes, all gentle on your pet and the planet. Steer clear of
those brands that produce chemical laced grooming products.

Hempstar
Bonetag

5)      
Make sure your pet always wears a tag. Losing a pet can be trying both emotionally and environmentally.
Printing posters and driving around town in search of your missing four-legged
friend has an environmental impact that could be avoided if you were alerted
quickly that they were found. Whether you choose an electronic ID chip or a
hang tag, the important thing is that your contact information is easily
accessible. Our large Engravable Pet Tag
includes Chrome Pet Tags in a
variety of shapes, Stainless Steel Pet Tags with different image and color
options, as well as Decorate Metal Pet Tags. There is a style and size suitable for every
pet!

Now
is as good a time as ever to start reducing your pet’s carbon pawprints! Please
visit Muttropolis.com or one of our
three Southern California store locations to shop our eco-friendly
assortment
and learn more about planet friendly pet practices.
