What do you buy the mutt who has everything?

Trendy tote

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).

Posh polo

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".

Fine dining

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.

Fancy pants

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?

Terrific tweed
