LIFE @ MUTT: We’re Turning 84 this Year (in Dog Years)!!

Mutt Munchers

We are so proud to be part of the community for the last 12 years. It’s been an amazing journey from our original store in Solana Beach to growing through the recession to 3 stores and a fast growing website!  As a utopia for pets and their parents, we’ve met thousands of new furry friends and helped hundreds of dogs and cats find forever homes. To celebrate this monumental month, we’re introducing two limited edition flavors: Anniversary Dessert Mix and Anniversary Meat Lovers Mix. An added bonus? We’re offering our entire line of locally-made Mutt Munchers $3 off!

The Anniversary Dessert Mix contains our most popular dessert flavors: Blueberry, Ginger and Peanut Butter, and the Anniversary Meat Mix contains our most popular meat flavors: Bacon, Meatball and Liver. In addition to our Anniversary Blends, we are bringing back our Seasonal Flavors, including Pumpkin Pie and Crown Roast. Other flavors include: Peanut Butter, Blueberry, Ginger, Salmon, Bacon, Liver and Meatball.

These treats are made locally in Carlsbad, are grain and gluten free and include only all-natural, human-grade ingredients. Garbanzo beans take the place of grains, resulting in a tasty treat packed full of protein and dietary fiber. Each Mutt Muncher is about 18-19 calories and have an approximate 1 year shelf-life if the bag is completely sealed.

Why grain-free? Grains are a common allergy in dogs and can cause itchiness and other uncomfortable symptoms. Because grains take much longer to break down in the stomach, dogs often have trouble digesting them. Sticking with food and treats that are grain-free will make a positive impact on any pup’s health.

Delicious, nutritious and cost efficient, Mutt Munchers make a great addition to any dog’s diet! Visit us online or in one of our Southern California store locations to enjoy these Anniversary savings! Online customers can redeem their discount by entering MOREMUNCH at checkout.

Can’t Wag Without: Estela and Reggie + Ricky

Estela

Meet Estela, one of our buyers at Muttropolis, and her pups, Regina and Ricky. Reggie is small and sassy, while Ricky is like a big teddy bear. These two are part of our modeling crew and wanted to share a few things they can’t wag without!

Reggie is your quintessential Jack Russell – busy, busy, busy! She loves going on walks, but gets a little too excited and pulls on the leash a lot. Her Buddy Belt not only is comfortable, but it eliminates pressure on Reggie’s tracheal area because of its unique step-in design. Buddy belts are genuine leather, so they are extremely long lasting – Reggie’s had hers for five years! Added bonus: once Reggie’s in the harness, she can’t get out, which is a good thing if she’s feeling feisty!

Reggie

Ricky is a fan of chews, with his favorite being the Braided Bully Stick. These all-natural, long-lasting chews are only made with one ingredient: free-range grass-fed cattle sourced from Brazil. The braided texture makes it perfect for maintaining oral health and encouraging good breath. But always keep an eye on your pups when they are gnawing any chew!  Ricky

Estela often changes Ricky and Reggie's collars, whether it's for product testing or just a new look so extra engravable ID tags are a must-have item. If they ever get out or wander away when traveling, the finder will have all your information and can let you know they have your pup.

Lastly, Reggie and Ricky could absolutely NEVER wag without their Bowsers Beds! Their matching beds have micro-velvet fabric and a high-memory polyester fiberfill inner cushion, making them super comfy and perfect for a good night’s sleep. The dog’s aren’t the only ones that love these beds – Estela loves these beds because washing them is a breeze – the cover unzips and can be either hand-washed or thrown in the washing machine!

Dig This Deal: Save 20% on Barkworthies Treats During the Month of June!

June Treat of the Month

Our Muttropolis Treat of the Month for June is on Barkworthies Treats – they’re 20% off all month long! Available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and flavors, we have treats perfect for all discerning pups’ preferences.

 

Is your dog a fan of chewing? Then you and your pup are in luck! Curly Bully Dog Chews, Flosser Dog Chews, Bully Ring Dog Chews, Bully Pretzel Dog Chews and Braided Bully Stick Dog Chews are a great, healthy way to provide your pup with something to chew on that they are sure to love! These chews promote healthy teeth and gums, and are made from 100% all-natural free-range grass-fed beef, allowing for easy digestion. No bleaches or chemicals are used in the manufacturing process.

 

If your pup loves bullies, but you’re not a fan of their odor, we’ve got you covered with the Odor Free Bully Stick Dog Chew. This chew is baked rather than sun-dried to eliminate the odor, yet still has the same taste and texture as any other bully chew! It’s a win-win for you and your pup! 

Himalayan Chew with Bully Stick Dog Chew

The Himalayan Chew with Bully Stick Dog Chew has the best of both worlds – a mix of a bully stick AND a Himalayan chew! The bully stick portion is made from 100% all-natural free-range grass-fed beef and the Himalayan chew portion is made from boiled yak and cow milk. A chewy and tasty treat, it is sure to keep your pup busy!

 

If you’re looking for something stronger and longer-lasting than a bully, look no further: The Elk Antler Dog Chews and Elk Split Antler Dog Chews are a sure winner! Both of these chews are made in the USA and are a much longer lasting healthy choice as dogs are forced to work to gradually grind the chews down slowly. These all-natural, naturally shed chews are sourced from the Central Rocky Mountains, and no bleaches or chemicals are used in the manufacturing processes. As with any hard chew, we recommend supervision as these elk antlers can break teeth if worked too aggressively. Once the chew is small enough to swallow, we recommend that it be taken away and replaced with a new one.

 

If you have a puppy or a senior dog and are looking for a softer treat, the delicious and nutritious Natural Dog Treat Stick is a perfect fit! These soft all-natural treat sticks are made with the finest ingredients with no artificial flavors, wheat, corn or soy. They are addictive-free, chemical-free and preservative-free.

 

Lastly, if your pup is a fan of sweet potato, then we recommend the Sweet Potato Dog Treats. These USA-made thick-cut sweet potato fillets are packed with vitamins and minerals. They also double as a dental treat – the chewy texture helps remove tartar and plaque from teeth!

  Sweet Potato Dog Treats

Our Treat of the Month promotion on Barkworthies Treats is only valid from June 1st through June 30th, so stock up now! Online customers can redeem this 20% offer online by using the code BARK20 at checkout. The promotion is also being offered at all three of our Southern California Muttropolis store locations

Grains are a common allergy in dogs and can cause itchiness and other uncomfortable symptoms. Because grains take much longer to break down in the stomach, dogs often have trouble digesting them. Sticking with food and treats that are grain-free will make a positive impact on any pup’s health.

One of our loyal Muttropolis customers described her and her pup’s happiness with the Bacon Bites Mutt Munchers as such:

These treats are amazing! I have a very picky Chihuahua and I struggle with finding a treat that’s healthy, not too expensive, and that she’ll eat. Not only does she eat Mutt Munchers, but she LOVES them! I love to see her little tail wiggling with excitement everytime I bring a bag home! They are crunchy, which gives her something to work on, but still easy enough to break in half so I can make them last. I just love Mutt Munchers, and so do my dogs!

Delicious, nutritious and cost efficient, Mutt Munchers make a great addition to any dog’s diet! Visit us online or in one of our Southern California store locations to enjoy these May savings! Online customers can redeem their discount by entering MOREMUNCH at checkout.

Can’t Wag Without

An insider’s look at what Muttropolis dogs can’t wag without.

 

Meet Gatsby, a Boxer rescue, and his proud Mama Ria, a member of the Muttropolis pack. Gatsby was adopted in July of last year weighing in at a measly 57 pounds and suffering from pnemonia. Ria came to Gatsby’s rescue and now he is a very healthy and happy 71 pounds. He is spoiled with the luxuries of being a Muttropolis pup, acting as a “product tester” of sorts, but Ria can attest that if she really wants to get Gatsby’s tail wagging, she must turn to a few of his favorite things.

Gatsby + Ria

Plato Thinkers + Tucker’s Chicken Breast with Bacon

Plato Thinkers Dog Treat SticksGatsby is hooked on the ginkgo baloba in these so called “Smart Dog Snacks,” the Duck variety being his favorite. Plato Thinkers are made from only all-natural and organic ingredients, they are fortified with antioxidant vitamins, a great source of iron, and with ginkgo biloba they even nourish brain function. Watch out Ria, Gatsby may start outsmarting you with these in his daily diet!

Tucker’s Chicken Breast Dog Treats also get Gatsby’s tail wagging. Gatsby gets to enjoy these when he deserves something decadent, and according to Ria that’s more often than not! His favorite flavor is made with just two simple ingredients, human grade chicken wrapped in bacon. Yum yum.

Fleece Stick Animals + Talking Toys

Being a big boy, Gatsby generally gravitates towards larger dog toys. Currently he can’t get enough of his Huge Monkey Stick Dog Toy. Fun to carry around and cuddle up with, Gatsby’s monkey is never far from him, even when he’s playing outside. Gatsby also gets a kick out of talking toys. When Ria gives them a sound activating squeeze, Gatsby perks up and leaps to play.

Huge Monkey Stick Dog Toy

The One & Only Katie Puff Bed

Plush Companion Katie Puff Dog BedAt the end of each day, or simply when Ria is away, Gatsby loves to cuddle up in his Animals Matter Plush Companion Katie Puff Dog Bed. Generously overstuffed with down-like fiberfill and covered in lavish chenille, Katie Puff dog beds bring luxury to a whole new level and lucky Gatsby agrees. Ria enjoys the easily removable cover. All she needs to do is unzip to clean in cold water and hang dry.

Luxury Leather Collars

Gatsby is short haired and has sensitive skin so Ria keeps him in leather dog collars of the highest quality, often handcrafted. Collars are a great way to highlight a pup’s personality, but they’re often also representative of the owner’s preferences. Ria is a huge fan of decorated leather collars, so Gatsby is always adorned in turquoise stones or metal embellishments, making him all the more handsome.

Turquoise on Chocolate Leather Dog Collar

Belmont Raised Bowl

Belmont Elevated Dog BowlIf you haven’t noticed already, Gatsby is living a life of luxury, so of course he dines in style too. Since he’s taller in stature, Ria knew the importance of investing in an elevated dog feeder. Raised feeders are recommended by veterinarians to help prevent pups from gulping down their food, which reduces air intake and the possibility of bloat and gas. Being a sophisticated pup, Gatsby dines in a Belmont Elevated Dog Bowl.

What keeps your pup wagging?
