Fashion Hounds

  1. This marble waterbowl by MR.DOG is both stylish and functional. So expertly crafted it would not look out of place on your coffee table and it's clever design keeps water at a cool 67 degrees - the perfect drinking temperature for pups. A treat for both Growlmama and dog.

  4. Modernist dog bed by B.Pet. Available in the UK from London's Pet's Pyjamas and in the US from ModPetLife. Need we explain. #ILoveLucite

Designer Doggy

  1. Get your dirty dog clean with Mr.PAW's all natural grooming products. Shampoo for pups that looks better in your bathroom than your own Pantene!
  2. How it Works: The Dog. This latest in the series of Ladybird books published to help grown-ups understand the world around them. The large clear script, the careful word choice, the frequent repetition and the thoughtful matching of text with pictures all enable grown-ups to think they have taught themselves to cope.
  3. This limited edition print by Anthony Oram for Pedlars is part of a series printed in England on heavy card with fluorescent ink. Each card carries a number issued by Anthony's Department of Information and Motivation. Enough said.
  4. MR.DOG Roboto poop bag holder. At last a poop bag that's functional and also looks fab. Handcrafted in Brooklyn by our favourite New York style-hounds at MR.DOG. #WhyAreAllPoopBagsShapedLikeBones?

5. Ware of the Dog neon collar. So urban, so chic. We have the lead. Collar required.

6. Ware of the Dog raincoat in safety orange - the perfect accompaniment to the neon lead and high on our wishlist since our little fat pup grew out of hers. UK Growlmamas can fetch these treats from purveyors of canine style, Lead the Walk.

7. Growlmama favourites Blackscore and Wild at Heart Foundation have joined forces to produce a range of fabulous t's and sweats with all proceeds going towards Wild at Heart's efforts to rescue abandoned dogs in Europe. Cool shirts for a cause. #WinWin.

8. Treat your mutt to a never-ending T-bone by Purple Bone.  #NomNom.

10. Reebok Club C 85 Vintage trainer in chalk and green. Walkies? Yes please.

11. For the design hound with everything, book a dog-friendly getaway with Pets Pyjamas. Or a getaway in a dog at Idaho's Dog Bark Park Inn. #BucketList
