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!

Dig This Deal: Enjoy $4 Off Mutt Munchers in May!

Mutt Munchers Dog TreatsIt’s that time again, time to enjoy whooper savings on our very own, much loved Mutt Munchers dog treats! For the whole month of May we’ll be offering $4 off every bag, reducing the regular price of $11.99 to $7.99. Mutt Munchers are a must try, they’re delicious, nutritious, grain-free, and made fresh locally in Southern California.

Available in a variety of flavors, there are Mutt Munchers to please every pup’s preferences and complement their dietary needs. Our assortment includes Peanut Butter Poppers, Blueberry, Granny Ginger’s Snappers, Salmon Snappers, Bacon Bites, Liver Lovers, and Meatball. All flavors are grain-free and include only all-natural, human-grade ingredients. Garbonzo beans take the place of grains, resulting in a tasty treat packed full of protein and dietary fiber.

Grain FreeGrain-free is the way to be! If your pup isn’t currently on a grain-free diet it is worth considering. 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.

Tips To Keep Your Pets Safe This New Years Eve

Happy New Year

We’d like to wish you and your pets a very Happy New Year! With celebrations right around the corner, we wanted to share a few tips and suggested precautions to help keep your furry friends and family members safe and sound for the holiday.

Small Chrome Bone Engravable Pet TagCheck your pet’s ID. Be sure your dog is wearing an up-to-date and visible ID tag on their collar at all times. This way, in the unfortunate event that they get lost, they can be returned to you promptly!If you find a lost pet, check their tag first and contact their owner, but if they don’t have a tag, we recommend that you take them to your local animal shelter, where they will have the best chance of being reunited with their owners. Each year, animal shelters across the country are prepared for receiving “New Years dogs” that run off during fireworks celebrations.

Peanut Butter MunchersKeep your pets on their normal diet. Human food and drinks should be out of reach of pets. Any change in a pet’s diet can result in indigestion and diarrhea. Foods and drinks such as alcohol, onions, chocolate, coffee, avocado, grapes & raisins, salt and yeast dough are especially harmful and can be potentially toxic to animals. Ingestion of alcohol may cause intoxication and weakness that could lead to a coma and/or respiratory failure. Keeping dog treats on hand will allow guests who want to give your dog food a healthy and safe alternative.

Always keep matches and lighter fluid out of pets’ reach. Many types of matches contain chlorates, which if ingested can damage blood cells and lead to difficulty breathing, in the most severe cases it can result in kidney disease. Lighter fluid is also very harmful. It can cause skin irritation and if ingested, gastrointestinal irritation and central nervous system depression. If inhaled, aspiration pneumonia and breathing problems could develop.

Never use fireworks around pets. When curious pets get too close to fireworks, whether activated or unused, there is the potential for severe burns and/or trauma. Many types of fireworks contain toxic substances including arsenic, potassium nitrate and other heavy metals. Also, the noise and sight of fireworks displays can spook pets, leading to anxiety and distress. Most pets will try to get away from the noise so it is best to them in a safe and secure place, preferably at home.

If needed, take additional precautions to keep your pet calm. Even well-adjusted pets can get anxious during out-of-the-ordinary events. If your pet is prone to anxiety, please consider consulting with your veterinarian on ways to alleviate their fear and anxiety prior to the New Years festivities.  ThundershirtThere are many natural calming products that may help. We also recommend exercising your dog early in the day, whether they are prone to anxiety or not. Make sure that any off-leash time is securely fenced and any walks have a good leash as some people may set off fireworks before dark.

We hope these tips are helpful, and wish you and your pets a safe and  Happy New Year!

Warning on Jerky Treats from the FDA

The Food and Drug Administration issued an alert to consumers this week about the illnesses and deaths tied to jerky treats from China. Nearly 600 pets have died and over 3,600 have reported illness after eating chicken, duck and sweet potato jerky treats.  The biggest problem is they cannot figure out the cause when testing contaminants.

Rest assured, we’ve researched our food and treat sources and we do not carry these treats or any treats made in China for that matter.  But we know that many pups just love those jerky treats, so we sniffed out the best alternative made right here in the USA.

Bixby Jerky treats are available in a delicious chicken flavor and they have 2 healthy formulas: Hip and Joint or Skin and Coat.  Both are free of wheat, corn, soy, preservatives and animal byproducts.

Bixby Chicken Jerky Dog Treats

Also a Chicken jerky treat, Tuckers, is an all-natural, grain-free, gluten-free treat  that  is  hand rolled in Wisconsin using chicken breast sourced in the United States and Canada. They are even produced under USDA oversight from 100% human grade raw ingredients, so you know they are safe for your pup!

Tuckers Chicken Jerky TreatsAnother taste-tester favorite are Primal Dry Roasted Chicken Shredders. Made with chicken raised in the United States without antibiotics or added hormones, these treats are a healthy, high-protein snack.
Primal Dry Roasted Chicken Shredders

And for those sweet potato lovers, we have these delicious Sweet Potato treats. Not only do dogs love them, but they have a pro-biotic coating promotes a healthy gastrointestinal tract in support of your dog`s digestive system.

Sweet potato dog treats

Whatever you choose to treat your pet, know that you are safe with us! Come by and see us for a taste test sometime!
