The Modern Dog of NJ is all about dog appreciation and outfitting our canine friends with functional yet stylish dog wear.  We try to cater to every dog's needs and provide them with the same creature comforts that their human counterparts are afforded.

In NJ there are four seasons.  During the winter it gets downright cold and we carry many coats of trendy styles.  During the summer, you can outfit your dog with the many life vests in our inventory.  Your dog will be happy and safe playing in the water.  During the Spring and Fall, shop our inventory for waterproof raincoats so your four-legged friends can stay dry while out on a walk.

We are a small online retailer, so we try to compete by offering superb old-fashioned customer service along with a 3 day guarantee of shipping to NJ residents.  Of course, we also deliver to the rest of the United States in addition to our four-legged friends world-wide.  Some exclusions apply.

The "Toby Collar" is constructed of thick reinforced webbing with an easy-to-fasten buckle and forged aluminum loops that not only look fantastic but also provide a strong and secure connection with any leash you decide to connect it with.  This collar will make your canine the coolest-looking dog on the block....ok maybe not but it's definitely well-made by a Vietnamese workforce and it is extremely affordable. 


Go ahead and put your dog to the test.  It comes in three Vibrant colors and three convenient sizes.  Give this Jersey-designed product a go and you and your dog will thank me for it!


Emma is modeling the "Apollo Vest".  I designed this knowing that some dogs are a pain to put clothing on.  It has the usual hole where a leash can be attached to a harness.  It is perfect for early spring - late winter.  


This Vest was named after my first dog Apollo.  Apollo is the reason why I was a vegetarian for 15 years.  Modern Dog NJ is my hobby business.

It is my quiet space where I can just be free to revel in the wonder and peacefulness of dogs.  In this chaotic world, it is very much needed and appreciated.  


Dogs are my passion and my answer to the human condition.  We should all treat them as the gift that they are and appreciate all that they offer.  I hope to add a little hope and wonder to this world with each coat or leash I sell.  Thanks for stopping by!
