Much Love,

Modern Dog - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

Spring is fi­nally upon us! Why is it so ex­cit­ing to pack away win­ter boots and coats in ex­change for a wardrobe of san­dals and sweaters? I just love this sea­son! With spring's warmer and longer days, flow­ers are pok­ing their heads up, the cherry blos­soms are al­most in bloom, and my Wire­haired Dachshund Penny is again en­thu­si­as­tic about our walks to­gether. There is noth­ing I don’t love about this sea­son of rebirth and re­newal; spring’s fresh start is so in­spir­ing. With this in mind, we’ve en­deav­oured to put to­gether a spring is­sue that matches the sea­son’s feel­ing of POS­SI­BIL­ITY. We share the sto­ries of peo­ple who, fac­ing life’s chal­lenges, found the spark and gump­tion to change their out­look and thus cir­cum­stances (p52 and 66)—pre­pare to be in­spired! We also talk to a cou­ple truly liv­ing the dream—a job that in­volves wine and help­ing res­cue dogs (p92.) Where do we sign up? And as usual, we im­prove your re­la­tion­ship with your dog by pre­sent­ing ac­tion plans for solv­ing prob­lem be­hav­iours (think mark­ing and whining) (p32 and 46) and share our cur­rent favourite finds, from budget buys that de­liver to the best toys for play­time to beau­ti­ful, prob­lem-solv­ing prod­ucts de­signed for dog lovers. Wish­ing you all the best the sea­son has to of­fer.
