Dogi’s who do Doga
Real life mutts and Zen Master Dogen Zenji, “Dog in Zen”, were the inspiration over many years that developed into Muttluks Mantra Mutts characters. Humorous, playful, Zen mutt characters with a “pawsitive” message. They’re Dogi’s who do Doga rather than Yogis who do Yoga.
The Furry Prophet
Does your dog, aka Mantra Mutt and furry prophet, inspire you and make your day better?
I’m Marianne Bertrand, the Sherpaw and founder of Muttluks. Dogs, animals and nature are the source of inspiration for me, and Muttluks in general. My first dogs, basset hounds Petunia, Jessica and Bertie inspired the original Muttluks dog boots in 1994. I’ve had many bassets over the years and hence, the basset in plough pose is one of the mascots and signature images of the Mantra Mutts line. Kasmira, Nanook, Chief and Ryder are the present day Muttluks Mantra Mutts.
The premise of Mantra Mutts is that dogs and nature are wise and we as humans have something we can learn from them.
A Give Back Business Model – Zen Income
We’ve stepped into a new millennium and business today is different than it was yesterday. Mantra Mutts leads the way with community spirit and a give back business model that Muttluks affectionately calls “Zen Income”.
The Mantra Mutts Woof Wish Program is a subsection of Muttluks long standing Woof Wish Program. Mantra Mutts raise funds for numerous causes including, SafePet Ottawa and 4Legs4Dogs, through Doga Challenges and by donating a percentage of the sales of all Mantra Mutts products.
Be at One with your Dog
The Mantra Mutts product line is fun, inspiring and growing. The line is launching new products throughout 2018 – the Year of the Dog, and features many Canadian made and eco-conscious products. Be at One with your dog with matching bamboo and organic cotton t-shirts, collars, leashes, pins and Muttsoks. Mantra Mutts Wisdom cards are a great communication tool to impart the wisdom of your “furry prophet”.
Be the Change!
Together we make this world a better place, step by step, paw by paw.
