Here are the 10 adorable dog breeds owners spend the most money on — including the pampered dachshund
But it seems not all dogs are equally spoiled, with research from online pet care market Rover.com revealing that some breeds receive significantly more money than others.
Bespoke beds (46%) and gourmet treats (45%) topped the list of items Britons spent the most, while designer collars and leashes (20%) and ‘household bark’ technology like pet cameras (25 percent) follow closely behind.
More than a third (34%) of dog owners even admitted that they regularly take their dog to a puppy salon or grooming service.
When it comes to essentials, most think pet insurance (34%), adoption fees (34%), and breed-specific healthcare and expected expenses (32%) were the dog charges that would leave a burning hole in their pocket.
However, research has shown that no expense will ever be spared when it comes to pet parenting – the love of a pet outweighs any financial impact, with 61% of Britons confirming that weren’t deterred from getting an extra dog.
Adem Fehmi, Canine Behaviourist at Rover, said: “With dogs being such an integral part of the family, it’s no surprise that owners want to give their pets lovely gifts. It’s important to remember that while adorable, dogs are a financial liability and basic costs can quickly add up.
“People who want to bring a puppy into the home need to make sure they are able to afford the extra costs necessary to give a dog a happy and healthy life. Not just now, but throughout the dog’s life. their animal.”
