non toxic wipes to clean up after your dog's messes

There’s no denying it: dogs will find a way to get themselves dirty!

Luckily, we’ve found a great new solution for keeping your furbaby looking fresh – Metro Wipes from MetroPaws. These high-quality dog wipes are a non-toxic, cruelty-free product that pairs perfectly with a messy pooch!

non-toxic wipes to clean up your dog's messesAs dog owners ourselves, we know how hard it can be to clean up a pup with a towel or wet cloth; the way dogs manage to get dirt in all their crevices, water alone leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to getting a dog’s fur ick-free. With cleansing ingredients, these wipes are a great way to rid your dog of grime and mess!

non toxic wipes to clean up after your dog's messesWhat we truly appreciate about these wipes are that they were created with canines in mind. Thicker and softer than other wipes, each Metro Wipe is 8 x 8 inches in size, large enough to cover a lot of doggy surface area. Alcohol and paraben free with natural, detoxifying ingredients, you can use these wonderful moist cloths wherever your pup would benefit from a wipe down: muddy paws, messy ears, a tushie in need, you name it!

With one hundred wipes per pack, there’s plenty for your pooch to use and a few for your own hands, too (we keep using them on ourselves after wiping down a dog in the office, and they leave our hands feeling soft and refreshed!). For a fresh scent on top of a great clean, check out the Charcoal Peppermint Scented version – it’s a delight to the senses.

pH friendly and a safe choice for pets, Metro Wipes are a great way to keep your pooch feeling clean and looking pristine. Priced at $17, check out Metro Wipes and other great products at metropaws.com. - JH

Winter has arrived, and that means it’s time to protect chilly pups from the frost! Here at Modern Dog we can’t get enough of the Snood by Gold Paw Series (we also can’t get enough of saying Snood).

cold weather clothing for small dogs to keep warm during the Winter Fuzzy, cozy, and built for unbeatable heat retention, this reversible neck warmer is the perfect solution for dogs that get chills in winter weather. It provides extra warmth for the neck and ears to keep your dog feeling delightful no matter the temperature!

Although its primary purpose is to protect dogs from the cold, we’ve also found that it’s a great multi-use tool – it muffles loud noises for dogs that are anxious around high volumes, and it’s great for tucking away long ears while your pooch chows down on dinner.  

comfortable and warm dog clothing for the winter, Gold Paw's snood is great for keeping dogs cozyOur favourite part? Family run for over 20 years, Gold Paw Series places a strong focus on sustainability, and the materials that make up these toasty warmers are made in the USA out of recycled materials.

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


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
