Most Interesting Presents Celebrities Have Bought Their Dogs
It’s not uncommon for dog owners to want to treat their pooches to a little pampering over the Christmas period. Whether you get them a new squeaky toy or some scrummy dog treats, it’s just nice to know that they have a little something special for the festive period too. Here at Finchley dog walker, we prefer the homemade treats and useful items to keep them well, but we thought it would be a fun idea to take a look at the other end of the spectrum and find out what celebs have bought their dogs.
Pet Dressing Up
It seems that dressing your pets is a big trend for Christmas gifts in the celebrity world. Many celebs are making sure their pets are in the festive spirit, like Mariah Carey’s Jack Russell’s dressed in mini Santa outfits or Gok Wan’s bull dog Dolly Dishcloth, who was spotted donning a festive red and white outfit. Some also opt for more subtle and practical outfits, including Barbour waxed jackets or American Apparel hoodies for dogs.
The Pet Mansion
It seems there is no limit to Paris Hilton’s spending or love for her little four-legged friends. One of the presents for her pooches includes a two storey pet mansion that’s fully heated, furnished and lavishly decorated with a black crystal chandelier and leather sofas!
Ludicrous or Luxury?
It’s not really for us to say, but other over-the top pet presents celebs have splashed out on, include 52-carat diamond dog-collars, which costs a whopping $1.8million. This exuberant dog collar is made from white cold and over1600 hand-cut diamonds. You certainly would need to be careful where you were walking your dog with this one.
Other luxuries include a Swarovski Studded Dog throne. Whilst most of us are trying to encourage our pets off the sofa, these opulent thrones give dogs a place of their own to rule over and why not team that with a Versace Barocco Dog Bowl with 22-carat gold leafing to complete the look.
Moving away from the over-the-top dog gifts, some celebrities do go for more practical purchases and essentials such as leads and collars. Whilst Hunger Games star, Liam Hemsworth gives his pup a Star Wars Collar, others opt for Mungo & Maud leads by Mulberry over high street options for the ultimate dog chic look.
Whilst it’s interesting to see how the other half live, the main thing to bear in mind when you’re buying a present for your dog is practicality and the enjoyment they will get out of it. A reasonably priced Kong is likely to give more entertainment than a crystal encrusted collar!
