Modern Dog staffers’ picks of the lit­ter

Modern Dog - - CONTRIBUTORS -

1 With my short lit­tle Peke legs, I'm a big fan of the Perch Pet Nest from Perch for Pets. The el­e­vated bed gives a brand-new per­spec­tive to ‘peo­ple watch’ from! The bas­ket­shaped de­sign can also hold my toys and makes me feel safe and se­cure if I de­cide to take a lit­tle nap. This is my new favourite place to hang out and sleep!— So Ha the shorty Peke (From $89, per­ch­for­pets.com)

2 It takes a lot of coax­ing to get my dog to let me brush his teeth, so when I fi­nally get to, I want to make it count by us­ing the best pos­si­ble prod­uct! That’s why Curry N Pep­per’s Tooth Paste is what I grab when it’s brushin’ time. It’s xyl­i­tol and sor­bitol-free, is based on Ayurvedic prac­tices, and my dog loves the taste! All I have to do is mix in a bit of wa­ter or co­conut oil and brush away!— Mariah ($16, Cur­ryNPep­per.com)

3 Re­duce stress and help dogs with leg in­juries heal quickly and with dig­nity. The Re­cov­ery Sleeve from Suit­i­cal of­fers front leg pro­tec­tion, pro­vid­ing cover for hot spots, ban­dages, skin con­di­tions, and more. This stretch cot­ton sleeve is a com­fort­able al­ter­na­tive to the in­fa­mous cone of shame. Suit­i­cal also of­fers full re­cov­ery suits avail­able in sizes to fit small Chi­huahuas all the way up to New­found­lands.— Jen­nifer ($35, Suit­i­cal.com)

4 Fi­nally, an easy way to ban­ish my fleas with­out syn­thetic chem­i­cal in­sec­ti­cides! Pro­tect your pup from par­a­sites like fleas, ticks, and lice, nat­u­rally—ap­ply Al­zoo nat­u­ral re­pel­lent be­tween your dog’s shoul­der blades and it dis­perses to of­fer one­and-a-half to six months of chem­i­cal-free pest pro­tec­tion!— Penny the Wire­haired Dachshund ($17, Al­zoo-vet.com)

5 True dogs of the Pa­cific North­west, my mutts Blue and Homer love the taste of wild salmon! They highly rec­om­mend the sus­tain­able, all-nat­u­ral salmon oil of Griz­zly Pet Prod­ucts, ex­tracted from de­li­cious wild Alaskan salmon. Add this nu­tri­tious oil, chock-full of Omega-3 fatty acids, vi­ta­mins, and an­tiox­i­dants, to your dog’s din­ner to sup­port your pup’s im­mune sys­tem and con­tribute to a healthy skin and coat!— Eleanor ($30, griz­zlypet­prod­ucts.com)

6 If you love your big fluffy dog, but you also want to see your fur­ni­ture and floors, then a good vac­uum is ab­so­lutely es­sen­tial! The Bis­sell Pet Hair Eraser is de­signed specif­i­cally to clean up pet hair with spe­cial­ized tools like the Tan­gle-Free Brush Roll and the Pet Tur­boEraser. With this vac­uum in hand, I was able to re­move the em­bed­ded, hard-to-get hair out of the up­hol­stery and can now sit on the sofa with­out fear!— Jen ($270, bis­sellpet­vac.com)

7 I worry how to en­sure my pup’s pro­tec­tion if I am in­jured and can’t tell any­one that Fido’s home alone wait­ing for me. Latchkey Petz ac­ces­sories alert first re­spon­ders that you are a pet owner and their on­line regis­tra­tion houses all med­i­cal records and other im­por­tant info. —Ce­line (From $15, LatchkeyPetz.com)

8 Picky? I just say I’m choosy! And I en­thu­si­as­ti­cally choose Rayne Re­wards S.I.T rab­bit jerky. Not only is it healthy and de­li­cious, it won’t up­set sen­si­tive stom­achs. And I’ve yet to meet a dog that doesn’t go crazy for it. Four paws up! I LOVE these treats, avail­able for pur­chase at your vet.— Minia­ture Dachshund Es­ther (RayneCanada.ca/treats)

9 Age takes a par­tic­u­lar toll on our dogs’ joints. True Leaf Pet’s Hip +Joint Sup­port for­mula helps re­duce the ache so many dogs ex­pe­ri­ence as they get older. These nat­u­ral chews com­bine hemp seeds and ac­tive in­gre­di­ents like cur­cumin and green lipped mus­sel to ease sore joints so you can get back to en­joy­ing ad­ven­tures to­gether.— Con­nie ($15, TrueLeafPet.ca)

10 Is your dog fear­ful (thun­der, fire­works, vet vis­its…) or suf­fer­ing from sep­a­ra­tion anx­i­ety? Help nervy dogs or those that have been through a trau­matic sit­u­a­tion feel calm with Bach Res­cue Rem­edy. Just add two drops of this nat­u­ral rem­edy used on hu­mans and an­i­mals for more than 80 years to help your dog re­lax and re­gain emo­tional bal­ance.— Laura ($21, res­cuerem­edy.com/pets)
