Make Your Dogs Smile & Help Rescues with the MuttNation Collection

Posted on Sep 2 2016 - 10:59pm by Susan Bewley

Looking for adorable pet products that help rescue dogs? See why we are huge fans of the MuttNation Collection from Petmate here!

Is there anything better than buying awesome toys for your dog and helping an awesome non-profit at the same time? Honestly, I love finding quality toys for the girls that are not only durable and adorable, but also go toward helping a good cause. When I heard that Petmate, one of my favorite brands, was teaming up with the new MuttNation Fueled by Miranda Lambert brand, I honestly couldn’t wait to see the toys. Part of what makes these toys so amazing in my eyes was that every product purchased from this line helps fund the rescue and adoption programs of the MuttNation Foundation, an organization started by Miranda and her mother, Beverly Lambert in 2009. Our malamute family is always excited to help animals in need. The collection revolves around a country chic with a rock and roll flare, with some amazing items in the collection including bedding, collars, leashes, toys, apparel, and meal time accessories. Below, we have three of our favorite items that we are happy to feature from the MuttNation collection!

MuttNation Tambourine Faux Suede Toys

Okay, I have to admit, this has to be Rylie’s favorite in the entire collection. She absolutely LOVES making her own squeaky music with the MuttNation Tambourine Faux Suede Toys. This music-inspired toy has an extra large squeaker in the top of the toy, and like all the toys in this line, it features the handcrafted, Americana look and feel with faux suede. As well as coming in a variety of colors, it is suitable for small, medium, and large dogs. What we love is that it catches the attention of older dogs and puppies alike. Right now, this is Rylie’s favorite toy to play with herself, though she will also happily play keep-away from Ivi. What I love the most is that this toy is extremely durable, making it a great toy for not-so-gentle toy lovers, or even doggy rough housing.  Currently, the MuttNation Tambourine Faux Suede Toys are available for only $12.99 each.

MuttNation Faux Suede Animals

Our next favorite toy in the MuttNation Collection was easily one meant for bitey-face champions (or at least it is commonly a bitey-face trophy in our house) – the MuttNation Faux Suede Animals. For this toy, we were sent the cutest little flamingo, which quickly became one of Ivi’s favorite toys, especially if she wants to get the puppy excited and ready to play. These colorful critters are designed to have a country chic, handcrafted look, while being durable enough for fetching and tuggling. Of course, it is also perfect for tugging due to its strong ropes and awesome faux suede design. What makes it so great for bitey face too is the rope legs, which both girls love to tug on while playing. This toy is available four cute animals – Rooster, Flamingo, Armadillo, and Unicorn. Currently, the MuttNation Faux Suede Animals are available for only $12.99 each.

MuttNation Bone Applique Pillow Bed

Now with Rylie being a big girl, we thought it was time for her to have her own big girl bed. While Ivi has beds all throughout the house, Rylie hasn’t really had one that she could call her own, mostly due to Ivi not wanting her on her beds (quite possibly due to constant potty accidents, we can’t really blame her). Now that those are mostly a thing of the past, we decided she was ready for her own chic bed – the MuttNation Bone Applique Pillow Bed. This cozy bed has a country rock and roll flair, one of the signature styles of Miranda Lambert. Featuring a plush bone appliqué on the corner, it is also filled with soft high-lofted polyfill, making it a nice, comfy bed for even bigger dogs, and is available in three styles – tooled leather, denim, and red bandana prints. As you can see, Rylie is a big fan of her new bed! Currently, the MuttNation Bone Applique Pillow Bed is available for only $34.99.

    My dog needs some durable toys. Artie destroys almost all the toys that we give him.

    Bet my dogs would love these, though I’m not sure how well they’d hold up under rough play.

    I love purchasing squeaky toys for my dog but since he’s a lab, they must be tough toys. Funny thing is he LOVES his toys to make noise but he doesn’t try to chew the squeaker out! I’ll check out this company.

    These toys look amazing and I’m sure my pocches would instantly fall in love! Thanks for showing me these and I love the fact that each purchase will help fund rescue and adoption programs that are part of the MuttNation foundation.

    I love companies that help with rescue and adoption. There are so many animals in need. The bed pillow and toys look awesome. Thanks for sharing this and for spreading the word to help.

    I always help out at our local pet rescue shelters here were I live. I even have a rescue dog that I love dearly.

    I am taking care of my son’s dog indefinitely. He could use his own bed.

    These toys and bed look perfect for our two dogs. Both are huge chewers, but one eats through everything. These toys look like they would hold up even for her.

    I began to fall in love with MuttNation not long after I began reading this post. But then I saw… “Is that Miranda Lambert? No. Is it? Yes, it is. *squints at the little words* It is! Aaahhhh! I love her! Way to go, Miranda!”
    ….I am officially in love with MuttNation. 🙂

    Love these peeps! We are something of a Mutt Nation here at our house too – all rescues, a senior dog, a senior cat, a dog that had been kicked and needed surgery (on his poor butt!) – so we relate!

    Layla is a rescue and will only rescue plus will only buy from places that support rescue organizations as our motto is giving back as you can see by our website

    These look like great products and I think my dog would love them as much as yours do.

  29. Sandy Weinstein September 11, 2016 at 12:46 am - Reply

    these are some really nice items. my oldest and youngest loves toys that make music. my oldest would play her toys in the phone for her grandma. i would tell Evie grandma is on the phone and she would go get her toys and play music in the phone for grandma. i am glad they are supporting rescues. i know ML has many rescues and has supported them for many yrs.

    Such a great cause. It’s a win-win. It helps with rescues and we get great products! My dogs would be so happy with a new pillow and some toys.

    I am always searching for great quality dog products for my furry friends. Thanks for sharing this post and congratulations on the new bed!

    Just ordered tambourine and flamingo for my classroom for therapeutic dogs to enjoy. LOVED the FREE SHIPPING!!

    We have a little Morkie and he loves cloth toys. He loves to chew on them as well as play fetch. The bed would be perfect for him too. I also love that my purchase is helping other pups in need 🙂

    The toys look like fun for the dogs. They would last with our small terrier, but not our son’s two pit bulls. Few toys last more than about 15 minutes with their strong jaws.

    This is such a great idea. I love purchasing products where I know profits go to a good cause.

    A wonderful review!! Very chic products at reasonable prices. I absolutely adore Miranda Lambert and I adore any product that gives back, especially to the animals!!! The company I work for specializes in fundraisers.

    This is a very good review that was full of interesting facts and was well written. The company seems to really understand the needs of pets and their owners.

    We love to make our rescue dog, Artie smile. My favorite item is the bed, all dog deserve a bed that is comfy.

    We are all about the rescues here (as you probably already know!). Two rescue dogs, two rescue cats. One dog (Monty) a senior of more than 15 years just discarded like so much trash now having the good life in my California back yard and inside on his cushy beds (yes, he has two of them to pick from).

    Sounds like an awesome company!! I love that their toys are fun and durable!! So important!
