Check it Out: New Collar Styles for any Pup!

Colllars

If you didn’t know, we LOVE collars. We have over 200 different collars to choose from (yes, that’s 200, not 20!), with styles ranging to basic leather to polka dot fabric to everything in between. Our extreme collar selection sets us apart from the rest!

We hand-pick every single collar that you see on our website. How do we distinguish between the collars we offer and the collars that don’t make the cut, you ask? Well, we always make sure our collars not only have a unique design, but are perfect for any type of pup – the preppy pup, the blinged out pup, the rugged pup, etc. We also make sure that the material used on our collars is of high quality and has durable hardware. Because no dog is the same, we offer a variety of sizes of collars, from teacups to big breeds.

Since it can be a mess to go through every single collar on our site, we have them categorized for ease: if you’re looking for a fabric collar, check out our Fabric + Nylon Collars and Stripes, Plaids + Solid Fabric Collars sections. Leather lovers have two sections as well to check out: Leather Collars and Sparkle Collars (for that extra touch of bling). For pups that are in training, we have a spot devoted to all Training Collars. Teacups have their own section, featuring adorable leather and fabric collars. Lastly, if you’re a night walker, we have a Lighted or Reflective Collars + Leashes section.

CollarSelection

You’ve found the collar you love. Now what? Time to measure your dog’s neck for perfect sizing! Our blog post from last year, “The Pursuit of the Perfect Collar” give you all the information you need on how to find the perfect collar size:

For the ideal fit, you will want to allow for one to three fingers to fit between the collar and your dog’s neck, depending on your dog’s size. So, when you measure your pup’s neck, be sure to place the appropriate number of fingers underneath the measuring tape to find the true size. Below is a breakdown of how many fingers we advise according the size of the dog:

Small Size Dog (20 pounds or less) – 1 finger’s width
Medium / Average Sized Dog – 2 finger’s width
Extra Large Dog – 3 finger’s width

Now that you know what size your pup is, it’s time to shop! Here’s an added bonus: get 10% off when you purchase a collar/leash set! Use code WALK10 at checkout to save. Shop away!

Just In: Sock Monkey Styles for Your Pup!

Sock Monkey Collection

Here’s a little history lesson for you all: Sock Monkeys were first made during the Great Depression when people would sew red heeled socks together. Now, more than 80 years later, they’re just as fabulous and have been incorporated into a ton of things. With that being said, we’d like to introduce our newest collection: The Sock Monkey Collection!

With fall in full swing and winter on the horizon, sweaters and scarves are a must. This awesome zip-up hoody is sure to keep you warm AND comfortable, as it’s made with a cashmere blend! It’s definitely a mutt favorite. More into something a little lighter? The Sock Monkey Striped Wool Scarf is great because not only will it warm up your pup’s neck, but it’s adjustable, insuring a perfect fit! With these items, you’ll be turning Bowser into your very own Sock Monkey in no time!

Why not rock the Sock Monkey on your daily walk? We won’t object to that! In fact, we encourage it with our Sock Monkey collar, leash and bowtie. If you’re looking into dressing your dog from neck to tail, this is perfect, as each item completely matches! If you’re more into the subtle Sock Monkey flair, then you have the ability to choose which item you like best. We love options!

Of course, this collection wouldn’t be complete with Sock Monkey toys! From multi-colored to corduroy to sock-made cat toys to the original Sock Monkey, we have enough Sock Monkey toys for you to fill your toy box to the rim!

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.

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.”

Yes! We hope you have an amazing Pet Appreciation Week with your pet.
