Dyson Vacuum Cleaner

We know what it’s like to have a dog in the house – with all the fur, dirt, and grime pups can track into our homes, keeping the place clean can feel impossible! When it comes to vacuuming, the Dyson Cyclone v10 Absolute is a powerful tool we here at Modern Dog trust to free our homes from the reign of fur, dirt, and dander.  

 

 

 

Although Dyson is known for its powerful suction, we think it should also be known for its thoughtful, practical design. This vacuum is amazingly lightweight, easy to manoeuver, and can transform into a handheld model to use in cars, along stairs, and with upholstery. With an additional soft roller head to use on hardwood floors and detail tools built to accommodate difficult crevices and sensitive materials, this vacuum is a versatile tool that can help you to clean nearly every surface in your home. 

 

This product was designed with both cleaning power and convenience in mind – it includes a 40% larger bin in comparison to older models, and also features over 60 minutes of run time through its long-lasting battery, allowing you ample time to vacuum. Perhaps the most useful feature for dog lovers? Its impressively quiet suction allows you to vacuum without disturbing your dog with overwhelming noise.  

 

 

 

Keep the dirt and grime outdoors! Starting at $528, check out the Dyson Cyclone v10 Absolute on Dyson’s American and Canadian sites. - JH

 

Your dog's new favourite accessory.

Treat yourself to a gorgeously decked out dog this holiday season!

With Auburn Leathercrafters’ wonderful selection of leather dog collars, you’ll be sure to find a piece that will have your dog feeling fine and looking festive.

We’re getting into the holiday spirit here at Modern Dog, and so we’re practically swooning over this beautiful jingle bell collar. Made in the USA from the same fine leather as Auburn Leathercrafters’ other pieces, this collar will put everyone who sees your pup in a very merry mood. (Fair warning: little kids will definitely think your dog is a reindeer, and you may have to pretend to be a Christmas elf to keep up the façade.)

 

 

If you’re pup is too sophisticated for overt holly jolly wear, these Manhattan Patent Leather Collars will have your pup looking ready for the catwalk (or more likely, his next dog walk). Glamorous, bright, and beautiful, these collars are both stylish and durable – pick from a colour selection of red, pink, white or black, all with a contrasting black bridle leather lining and beveled, hand polished edges. Want to give your dog’s ensemble a polished look? Check out this matching line of leashes!

 

Auburn Leathercrafters’ creates high quality leather collars in a huge variety of sizes, perfect for a pooch who likes his accessories luxurious and long-lasting. Check out their selection at auburndirect.com! - JH

Robin's Loving Touch

Here at Modern Dog, we love finding ways to honour our dogs and celebrate the joy that they bring us in life. Fortunately for us, the designs of Robin’s Loving Touch can help dog lovers cherish a pup’s most unique quality: their nose print. Like a fingerprint for a human, a dog’s nose print is unique to each and every dog, making Robin’s Loving Touch Nose Print Pendants a truly special way to cherish a furry friend.   

 

With a wide range of options for customization, these one-of-a-kind pendants are a perfect accessory for dogs and humans alike. You can choose from a wide selection of materials to create a pendant that suits your needs – select a sturdy chrome to create a beautiful dog tag that can withstand play, or choose from a selection of 14 kt gold, white gold, and sterling silver to create a precious piece of jewellery that will remind you of your wonderful pet as you wear it. You can also opt to add engravings such as your pet’s name, your phone number, or a personalized message to create a truly unique piece!

 

Although the grooves of your dog’s nose may seem impossibly intricate, the process of capturing your dog’s nose print is simple – a kit is provided to you with instructions for taking the impression, and the molding material provided is non-toxic and won’t stain your dog’s fur. 

 

Our favourite option is the “Unity” pendant, which allows you to capture your own fingerprint on one side of the pendant and your dog’s nose print on the reverse side. What a wonderful way to capture the connection between you and your dog! From $277, check out these one-of-a-kind designs at robinslovingtouch.com. - JH

Hurtta Extreme Warmer

With chilly weather an inevitability for many this winter, it can be difficult to ensure that dogs are warm enough as they play, train, or compete outdoors. Hurtta’s Extreme Warmers are built to protect pups from harsh winter conditions – built with quality, warmth and safety in mind, we think it’s a great choice to prepare your dog for some fantastic winter adventures!

Here at Modern Dog, we really appreciate the thought and care Hurtta went into for the design of this warm winter coat. It features a lot of great traits: 

HEAT REFLECTION - The unique foil lining material of the extreme warmer reflects the dog's heat and thus stimulates its blood circulation efficiently unlike a regular winter jacket.

FUNCTIONAL - The jacket protects the most important muscle groups for the dog's heat production as well as its neck and chest 

HOOD - Besides a high collar, the jacket has a warming tricot hood that can be lifted to protect the dog's ears and head 

ADJUSTABLE - With adjustable back length, collar and waist, and a protective rear hem, this highly technical outfit is suitable for a range of applications

Although thicker than some other dog coats, this winter jacket is built for movement and is ready for whatever fun you and your pup are enjoying. It’s also designed to fit your leash and harnessing needs, built with a ring for fastening a leash and an opening for a harness or collar. 

Starting at $110 and available in 5 different colours and 9 different sizes, there’s sure to be an option that suits your dog in size and style. What a great way to embrace your winter wanderlust! Check out the Extreme Warmer and other quality coats by Hurtta here.  – JH

Dog at home

Leaving your dog alone for the day can be a difficult time for both dogs and their owners, and here at Modern Dog, we know how easy it is to worry when away from our beloved pups. Luckily, Guardzilla’s 360 All-In-One Cameras can help put your mind at ease! 

Great for both indoor and outdoor use, this high definition camera allows you to watch your dog live from your smartphone. Swiping on your screen allows you to control which area of the monitored space you’d like to see. Unlike other camera monitors that have a limited scope, this camera has 360 vision to allow you to see even the sneakiest dogs!

So that you don’t have to be glued to your screen all day, this camera’s PIR motion sensors can detect movement and instantly send an alert to your phone. With a magnetic hanging mount, infrared sensors for night vision, and your choice of power source from a power cord or rechargeable batteries, you’ll feel relaxed and reassured knowing you can check in at any time. 

Our favourite part? The two way talk technology — this way, you can chat with your dog if they seem distressed! Prices start at $230, check them out online. – JH
