Cute Canine: Annie Cleveland-Wellington (Happy client of The Modern Dog)

Guy was on path to a life in the film industry until he met JoJo his french bulldog. With her love and inspiration he found himself headed in a new direction down a path that led to the door of The Modern Dog. This beautiful bungalow shop has a contemporary feel and caters to all your pet’s needs. The Modern Dog specializes in custom doggie beds that are cozy for your dog and stylish for your home.

Guy’s Favorite Thing Of The Holiday Season: “Drinking hot chocolate.”


Venice Pets

Java and Mocha (Mari’s sweet pets) and Lafayette (Jenny Karl’s babe)

Mari started grooming dogs as a hobby and loved it. Her hobby began doing great business and the next natural step was to  open venicepets.

Customers from as far away as NY stop in when they are in town to visit this trendy shop. Your pet will make a statement wearing the apparel of venicepets.

Good to know: she offers space for posting flyers for lost pets in the area!

Mari’s Favorite Part Of The Holiday Season: ” A great dinner on New Years Eve.”
