If your dog doesn’t like to dress up, celebrate the season with new toys! Our shop is busting at the seams with bunnies, chicks, and a few other festive favorites. Some of these toys even talk, coming to life with each squeeze! Talking toys are often favorites amongst squeaker-obsessed pups. Does you dog need more of a challenge? Then the Bunny and Carrot Burrow Dog Toy is the best of the bunch! Your pup will strengthen their intelligence and puzzle-solving skills as they work to remove the bunnies from the carrot each time you reinsert them.

Depending
on where you and your pup call home, you may be transitioning from summer to
fall or fall to winter, and before we know it we’ll all be diving into
the holiday season! So, we thought it was perfect timing for one last splash of color for your furry fashionistas. Take a look at our Fabulous in Fuchsia collection!

the Boiled Wool Dog Balls, a customer favorite now available in fun striped

October is National Adopt-A-Dog Month!

Adopt-A-Dog Month

The best way to honor Adopt-A-Dog
Month
is by adopting a dog in need! Choose a pup from a shelter or rescue
group and you’ll save a life, save money, find a healthy pet, help in the fight
against puppy mills and pet stores, and feel better! A while back we posted some
excellent tips on how to get started,
and choosing the right pet.

Live near a Muttropolis store? Then you’re in luck! For the
month of October, we’ll be hosting
multiple adoptions
every weekend in each of our three Southern
California stores. We’ve included the dates and times for each of
these adoptions below. As a congratulations and thank you, we’ll be providing
every dog that is adopted at one of our events with a Muttropolis “wag bag,”
filled with goodies to enjoy with their new family.




Save A LifeAs some of you may know, Muttropolis is an “Animal Admirer”
for the San Diego Humane Society.
We’ve already admired two pups that have found loving homes, and recently
received our newest animal to admire, Huxley. He’s a male American Pit Bull Terrier
Mix, a staff favorite, and extremely smart after having undergone extensive
training for etiquette, housetraining and tricks. He loves to perform
and thrives in active, athletic environments like the dog park. Huxley is just
over 7 years old and neutered. For more information about handsome Huxley and
the adoption process at the San Diego Humane Society, visit his profile. The video of him showing off his skills will
win you over right away!Huxley is featured in many of the images below.

No matter how you choose to adopt, whether from a shelter,
rescue group, or someone you know, there is one thing we know for sure,
every
dog "can't wag without"
 
these
essentials:

Collar & Leash

Essentials
for safety, and don’t forget a personalized tag!


Dog CollarEvery dog needs a collar
and leash for walks, to hold their identification tag(s), and to show of their
personal style! Our wide collar assortment includes color, fabric and style
options for each and every canine customer, most with coordinating leashes. And
to keep your pup safe in the unfortunate event that they ever get lost, an
engravable tag is a must-have too. We have over 100 one-of-a-kind styles to
choose from!

Bed

Whether they
like to snuggle up or stretch out!


Dog BedLet’s face it, dogs
sleep a lot, so having a comfortable, well-crafted bed is something each
four-legged fur ball should have. We carry all of the top selling designer and
luxury dog beds included square bolstered, donut, double donut, pillow,
outdoor, mats, blankets, duvets and more! Options to accommodate every pup’s
sleeping preferences and home décor.

Bowls or Feeders

For
feasting, one of their favorite times of the day!


Raised Dog FeederWe believe that dogs should
dine in style. To accommodate for differing design preferences, we have classic
ceramic bowls, sleek stainless steel feeders, contemporary wooden designs, and
much more! Why do we love raised feeders? With their elevated ergonomic design,
they aid in digestion, preventing pups from eating too quickly and suffering
from the uncomfortable side-effects.

Toys

Plush,
rubber, tough, interactive, there are toys for every pup’s playing preferences!


Dog ToysToys are like good
friends, the more the merrier! We have unique toys for pup’s that love plush,
enjoy playing fetch, need something interactive to eliminate boredom, or play
so hard they need a toy build tough! Keep your new addition entertained and
you’re sure to have a much easier transition and happier pup.

Training Tools

Essentials
when bringing a new pup home!


Training ToolsA well trained dog is
a happy dog, so be sure to stay in control when you bring your new pup home. Effective
dog training tools that are safe and humane make this much easier! Dog crates, training collars, no-pull harnesses, potty pads and anti-bark
products, can all be lifesavers in establishing a safe and secure environment.

Treats

Great for
nutrition, training, and the obvious… rewarding!




Stella & Chewy's Carnivore CrunchKeep it all-natural!
We have done the research on dog nutrition so that you don’t have to. All of
our treats are all-natural, easily digestible, preservative-free, wholesome and
delicious. And best of all, each month we offer a special promotion on a Treat
of the Month
, this month it is Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried dog treats.
Buy 2, get 1 free for the whole month of October!

some ways you can still help.
