Sneak Peek: Modern Dog’s Spring 2023 Issue is Here!
Ah, puppies. Adorable or incorrigible? Depends on your perspective—and your approach. These too-cute mischief makers can quickly turn from “best idea ever” to the cause of a “what have I dooooone?” existential reckoning. (Author Sonia Jones knows all about this—turn to page 62 for her musings on the moments of deep regret that can accompany adopting a very challenging pup. Spoiler alert: it was all worth it.)
There’s a good reason many prefer the charms of older dogs—puppies can bring a lot of chaos to your life. We’re here to arm you with knowledge and the right gear to easily raise a good canine citizen. On page 34, expert dog trainer and behavourist Teoti Anderson breaks down everything you need to know about puppies, from how to choose the right pup to essential things to expose your puppy to. We’ve also rounded up all the essential puppy gear and share our favourite, tested and approved picks! If you’re well past the puppy stage, happily skip the house-training tips and let us help you address the aches and pains in older hips, tackle shedding season with ease, and reflect on the incredible joys a bonded partnership with a canine bestie brings.
We’ve got fun activities, massage techniques, tips for handling dogs that don’t like other dogs, and other expert behaviour advice. We explore interspecies friendships, share reader-submitted Tiny Dog Stories, test the comfiest
dog beds, and so much more! Dive on in. We’re so glad you’re here.
