The gifts our most pampered pets receive, from a £ 2,200 dog carrier to diamond crocs

If you thought lavish Christmas gifts were only for people, think again.

Venice the poodle

Most dogs would be happy with a tasty bone and leftover turkey this Christmas. Not Venice the poodle.

The lucky dog ​​will receive gifts worth £ 4000. The best treats will include a Louis Vuitton dog carrier for £ 2,200, two Rockstud Valentino Garavani collar and leash sets for £ 980, plus luxury cushions for his garden swing valued at £ 160.

Owner Daniela Forshaw, a dog groomer in Cornwall, says: “Venice is not like other dogs. She seems to understand everything you say and loves being in front of a camera.

“She travels a lot for models and commercials, usually with her pink ears, pom poms and tail. But she hates sitting on the floor, so she needs a baby carrier and a safe space.

The seven-year-old dog posed for Chanel, Tatler and O2 – and even drove a Bentley toy in a music video for Julio Bashmore’s song “Let Me Be Your Weakness”.

At Christmas, she will also receive two designer bags – a £ 225 Aspinal of London nano bag to store her poo bags, and a £ 150 House Of Sunny backpack so she can take her own snacks and foot wipes on the go. the beach. Needless to say, Christmas dinner will also be a treat.

Ms Forshaw said: “We donate human food to Venice and she usually has her own meal when we eat out, which we transfer to her dog bowl. For Christmas, she’ll have smoked salmon, Italian meats, and a luxury cheese board from a local grocery store. Despite the amount spent on Venice, Ms Forshaw insists her prize poodle is worth it. “I have seven dogs in total,” she said.

“Others don’t care about all of this, they just want to be dogs. But Venice is different. She loves the camera, being pampered and being the center of attention.

Lola will also receive a personalized bed and plush, a new raincoat, hair ties, several new outfits, and a box of toys and treats.

Safer Pets

However, Lola’s Christmas treats won’t stop at gifts. For dinner, the mini Maltipoo will feast on her favorite dish of chicken, peas and dog sauce, followed by dog ​​ice cream.

Ms. Mcknight adds: “Although we love Christmas, Lola is groomed all year round. She loves going to the zoo and the beach and I don’t think you have to take time off work to take her to her favorite places.

“For her last birthday, I threw her a garden party with a balloon tower, a personalized birthday cake, a new swimming pool, a sandbox and a ball pit.”

The dog, who has two modeling contracts and 34,700 Instagram fans at @lolathemaltipoo_x, is also set for a fun New Year.

Ms Mcknight said: “Lola is known for modeling in her tutus. But next year we’re focusing on her role as an adventure puppy. We want to visit as many different places as possible, from castles to beaches and everything else.

Cadmar the cat

For Cadmar, High Wycombe’s Romanian rescue cat, Bucks, it’s all about the Christmas look. The pampered cat will only be seen in tailored pajamas with its face printed – to match those worn by its owners, Emma Moore and Shane Dowell.

Ms. Moore says, “We love to wear matching clothes. It’s just a fun thing to do on Christmas.

On top of that, the five-year-old short-haired cat will be entitled to a red and gray Kerble cat tree to watch his favorite TV show – The Simpsons.

Ms. Moore adds, “The tree is like a throne, very comfortable and in the place of honor. Cadmar is treated like a king in our house, so it is very appropriate. Although Cadmar never leaves the house, he will always take advantage of a new mini-ballpit for jumping, as well as a ruffle neck sweater and bubble bath.

“His favorite thing is a bath,” says Moore. “I wash him, then brush him, cut his hair on his paws and do his nails, then put on a new outfit.” He sits in the water and meows that he likes it so much.

In July 2020, Cadmar went viral on TikTok with a video of him walking backwards with an empty, crusty package on his head. So far, the clip has been viewed 231,000 times.

Ms. Moore says, “I love to dress her up, especially for events like Halloween. I have two other cats and they don’t like to be pampered, but Cadmar loves it.

Eroc the skater dog

Eroc the French Bulldog won’t be entitled to a designer handbag or sparkling tutu this Christmas, but a personalized skateboard. Seven-year-old Eroc started skating like a puppy after spending time at his local skatepark in Hackney, east London.

Owner Joel Deason says, “I never taught him to skate. One day when he was about nine months old we were in the park and he stole a kid’s board. A canine behaviorist told me that dogs are visual learners and Eroc seems to think of other skaters as his pack.

Eroc received his first board as a puppy, a lightly used Z-flex – just to stop stealing other people’s boards. This Christmas he’ll upgrade to a £ 50 custom Avenue Skateboards deck from the Boardwall Supply store in Hackney.

Mr Deason said: “The duct tape hurts his paws, so instead he will have a laser engraving on the top of Big Aye Skateboards for an additional £ 65, providing a non-abrasive texture to help him stay on. in place.

“He will also have leather bite strips on his tail and nose, to prevent damage to his teeth.”

To date, Eroc has gained over a million fans on social media under the handle @erocdog, as well as local fans in the region.

“Everyone knows Eroc,” adds its owner. “I never encouraged him to skate, but he gets cranky if he doesn’t. “I’m also giving him two plush dog toys from Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage from Pets Hate Toys to keep him entertained inside, but it’s all really about the board.

“He’ll be so excited when he gets it that, weather permitting, I imagine we’ll go straight to the park to test him out.”
