Wufers Cookies

So why not treat your pup to a whole box full of uniquely designed treats? Here at Modern Dog, we love Wufers’ cookie boxes. Not only do they look fantastic, but they’re made using locally sourced, human-grade ingredients, meaning you could eat them yourself—although your dog will probably like them better!

This Valentine’s day let your dog know you care with a love-themed box of cookies! Or celebrate your pup’s “gotcha day” or birthday with their birthday boxes. Have more than one pet? No problem! Wufers offers a bundle birthday box which offers two boxes at a discounted price. We promise we won’t tell if you want to get both boxes for only one dog!

Wufers believes all dogs should get to join in your celebrations, and they make doing this simple and fun. If your dog loves their treats, you can register them on the Wufer’s website and have a themed cookie box sent to them every month. New boxes come out over the holidays so be sure to check back with them during your favourite time of year. Don’t forget to share your Wufers pics with us—we love seeing dogs in love with their food. -AL

I Love My Fur Kid

Here at Modern Dog, we would do anything to protect our furball family members. When emergencies occur, however, we can’t always be there to ensure the safety of our pets. That’s why we here at Modern Dog love I Love my Fur Kid, a service that allows you to create custom emergency pet signs for your home.

I Love My Fur Kid emergency pet signsWith your choice of background colour and text, these signs allow you to feature a photo of your beloved pet that will inform others of your pet’s presence in the house during an emergency. Hang the sign in your entrance way, foyer, outside your door or in your window – wherever it is most visible so that others will know that there’s a furry friend inside to rescue!

If you’d prefer not to include photos or have too many pets to feature them all, you can opt to use a generic version of the sign – simply write with a sharpie to add extra details to the sign. On top of emergency pet signs, I Love My Fur Kid can create travel kennel tags, book marks, and fridge magnets you can customize with pictures of your pets. Our favourite option is the Pets Home Alone Key Chain–if for any reason you fall ill or become injured, this key chain will help others know you have a pet at home that needs assistance. You can add a phone number to the card or opt for a generic version in case you update your number frequently (write in your number in sharpie, and use a magic eraser to remove it). Pet emergency care card keychain for pets home alone

With all the stress of an emergency situation, it only seems right to put your mind at ease by having a few measures in place that will help ensure your pet is cared for. With prices starting at $10, check out I Love My Fur Kid’s selection of products at https://ilovemyfurkid.ca. - JH

Blue Buddy Belts Harness

Whether or not your pooch is a leash puller, we’ve certainly all experienced that difficult judgement call–do I pull hard on the leash to keep my dog safe, or risk the danger to spare my pup the neck pain? Although using a traditional leash and collar can seem like the only option, Buddy Belts has found a way to break tradition in an aim to help dog’s health. With a thoughtful and practical design, we love that these handcrafted leather harnesses are built to reduce stress caused to a dog’s neck, spine and throat when walking on leash. 


Buddy Belts Founder Roxanne and her Miniature Dachshund, BuddyCreated originally for Buddy, Buddy Belts founder Roxanne’s miniature Dachshund, Buddy Belts were built specifically to prevent the choking and coughing dogs can experience when walking with a traditional collar and leash. Although it’s the most common way to secure a leash when walking a dog, the pressure around the throat this arrangement causes can lead to health issues overtime. 


Rather than attach a leash at the neck, the unique patented design of the Buddy Belt allows the leash to be fastened between the shoulder blades, secured to your pup by the two holes that hold the front legs. By eliminating pressure around the neck, the Buddy Belt can help to keep your canine friend secure and safe from accidental injury.


Not only are these harnesses easier on your dog’s neck, they’re also super practical for dog owners. Buddy Belts are available in 11 sizes to accommodate dogs big and small, and its easy-to-use design includes an o-ring that slides to accommodate leash mobility while the Buddy Belt stays snug against your dog.

Lisa Bane Art pet portrait of dog at the beach

Here at Modern Dog, we never pass up a chance to honour and cherish our furry family members. That’s why we love Lisa Bane Art’s beautiful pet portraits. A perfect combination of realism and artistic vision, these portraits help you to capture the unique qualities your dog possesses in a painting that will last for years to come. 


beautiful pet portrait of a LabradorCurrently living and working in New Stanton, Lisa Bane has always had a passion for art. As a child, Bane loved to draw, and her mother’s work in landscape paintings inspired Bane’s creativity in her formative years. Having once been a registered nurse, Bane had to take a leave from physical work due to rheumatoid arthritis. Although a difficult illness, this is what inspired Bane to return to her love of art full time. Bane now fully embraces her passion for portraiture and continues to improve her craft through the creation of commissioned original work.


What we love most about Lisa Bane’s portraits is her attention to detail. Through only paint and canvas, Bane is able to capture the personality of her subjects, honouring each and every marking, the texture of fur, and the expression in a pet’s eyes. Not only are these paintings a wonderful reminder of your beloved dog, they capture the essence and character of your pup in a piece of art that you can continue to cherish long after they’re gone.Painting of a dog by Lisa Bane


Although these paintings are strikingly lifelike, Bane can paint any animal as long as she has a reference point from which to paint. For a more intimate painting process, Bane is also open to painting pets in person, or meeting with your pet to create preliminary sketches while completing the final product in studio.
