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

David Oreck Candle

Although we all love having dogs at home, we don’t always love how they make our home smell. That’s why we at Modern Dog love David Oreck’s Pet Odor Eliminating Candles!

These made in the USA candles are built with a wide wick to double its odour eliminating ability, and with three fantastic fragrances to choose from (infused with hints of green tea, eucalyptus, or lemon!) you’ll be sniffing serenely in no time.

Unlike candles that contain fillers or paraffin wax which can be harmful for pets to breathe, these 100% soy wax candles use an all-natural wick that allow for a clean burn, making it safe to use around all your family members, fur children included.

An 8oz candle can burn for a whole 50 hours, and once finished burning, the candle jar can be easily reused after a soapy scrub. With a choice of 8oz individual jars, sets of three, and convenient wax meltables, these fresh scented helpers make for a great gift, too!  – JH
