Hot dogs: The best accessories for your pampered pooch
What do you buy the mutt who has everything?
Saturday 26 June 2010
Many of the big labels offer their design classics tweaked to suit your furry friends, giving you the chance to tote your pet in Gucci-monogrammed luxury (£680). There's a short lead with a clip inside this dog bag, in case Rover spots a pretty-in-Prada pooch on the other side of the road and tries to make a run for it. You can also buy a matching collar (£120).
Ralph Lauren has brought its logo-laden polo shirts to the canine world, allowing your dog to rock the preppy look, too. For $40, you can choose from metrosexual pink and white stripes, pastel shades embroidered with the designer's pony symbol, or a patchwork block-colour pattern with an added "flirty flounce".
If your pet is a fan of sharp lines and minimalist chic, then this Mija "Wowbow" dog table from Harrods (costing a cool £239) is guaranteed to delight. And should dear Fido need a little lie-down on the world's most luxurious suede dog bed after he has stuffed his face, you'll only have to fork out a further £1,200.
If your pet is more party animal than pampered princess, then pay a visit to Max and Margot (maxandmargot.co.uk), who sell a great range of fancy dress and formal wear for dogs. Choose between an elf outfit, bridal gowns, tuxedos, tie and collar sets, satin ruffled "panties" or even a £25 penguin suit. The "ultra-soft" fancy dress penguin outfit is made from stretchy fleece and comes complete with a beaked hood, bow tie and little wings. It is available up to size XXXL – who says that Great Danes can't have fun, too?
Available in a choice of leathers (choose between mauve, fuchsia or Jaffa orange) and mounted on polished wooden Queen Anne legs, this luxury dog bed promises a regal vantage point for any pooch. Available from D for Dog, £1,500.
Does your mutt fancy himself as a bit of a Sherlock Holmes? Then buy him a deerstalker hat, available from Love My Dog and made from 100 per cent wool, £35.99.
