A Canadian magazine about dogs, Modern Dog Magazine gathers articles from members of the scientific community as well as craft fiends, random people, and dog trainers.
I originally looked into Modern Dog Magazine because of a recommendation in one of Stanley Coren’s books, I was not disappointed, at first.
Ease of Reading(10/10): It’s got pretty pictures and accessible language for the most part.
Accuracy of Information(7/10): I love the scientific portions but I’ve read some really bad book recommendations from the readers club that they have on there. Some good ones too though (see: Stargazing Dog).
Usefulness of Information(4/10): I love a lot of the information in the book though admittedly there is stuff in there that I will never use(certain recipes/craft projects). The dog advice lady gives horrendous advice and I honestly can’t tell sometimes if half of her recommendations are satire or not. I have seen a few posts since originally getting this book that made me cringe and it has made me not renew.
Cost: To subscribe for a year is ~$16.00. It’s more expensive naturally in stores.
Bottom Line: I was originally thrilled with this series until recently when the articles have proven to be less than healthy for a persons development. The magazine appears to be more interested in trends and fashions than in happiness and functionality. That is just my opinion though.
