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!

Every superpup needs toys. These toys are sure to make you relive your childhood and provide some fun!

Gear up for Summer!

Gear up for Summer

Bring on the heat! Although summer is the ample time for vacations and fun, it can get a little warm. Dogs, like humans, need to keep cool when the heat is blaring. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up the best products to keep your pup cool and happy!

When deciding what kind of apparel to fit your dog in during the warm weather, we recommend something that will cool their body. The ICool Vest is perfect for the warm weather – all you have to do is dip the vest in water, wring it out and you’re good to go! For those that have a dog that loves to swim, we recommend checking out the Float Coat – it’s the pups’ version of a life jacket!

ICool Vest  Ruffwear Float Coat

If you’d rather have your dog go without apparel this summer, there are some other ways to keep your pet safe from the sun and heat. Doggles are the perfect dog sunglasses and have 100% UV protection, promising protection of your furry BFF’s eyes. If you love to walk your pup, but are nervous about the heat of the cement, then dog boots may be your life saver! Not only do these boots keep moisture out, but the outsole protects and locks out dirt and debris while keeping your pup’s feet from burning.

Doggles  Ruffwear Dog Boots

Another way to cool down is (what else?) to play in the pool! We have some floatable toys like Loopies and Discs that will provide hours of fun in the sun while keeping cool! Another great toy to keep your pup cool is the Chilly Bone. The bone can be frozen multiple times and freezes in only an hour!

   Floating Disc Toy  Chilly Bone Toy

For those that are planning a road trip, pup water breaks are a must. To help keep your pup hydrated and reduce the bulk packaging of normal dog bowls, we have the Gulpy water dispenser, conveniently shaped in a water bottle, and bowls that are made to fit your car’s cup holder.

 Gulpy Water Dispenser  To Go Travel Dog Bowl

As we all know, fleas love to make an appearance during the summer. We offer a few different remedies to get rid of fleas, ranging from sprays to wipes to shampoos to supplements.

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.”
