NEW YORK, May 2 — Having a dog is a life choice, but it is also a style statement, according to a recent survey of the most fashionable pooches to own.
Labradors make the most fashionable canine companions, according to a survey carried out by exclusive luxury website VeryFirstTo. Mary-Kate Olsen and Anne Hathaway are just a few of the style-setters who have been photographed with their Labs.
Golden Retrievers came second place, with stylishly monochrome Dalmatians just behind in third position.
Fourth and fifth place went to Miniature Schnauzers and Yorkshire Terriers, both of which are dainty enough to fit in your favorite tote. Similarly, West Highland Terriers and Boston Terriers came sixth and seventh.
The perm might be out for humans, but Poodles are the eighth most fashionable pooch to be seen with, according to the survey, conducted among 2164 members of VeryFirstTo around the world. Somewhat sturdier Staffordshire Bull Terriers came in ninth, while cute Chihuahuas rounded off the list at number 10.
There’s bad news for Dandie Dinmont Terrier owners, as the survey revealed the breed to be the least fashionable dog to own, followed by the Norwegian Lundehund and the Otterhound.
The survey comes as the luxury website, in association with Italy-based online luxury retailer Forzieri, launches the ‘pawbag’ — miniature versions of designer handbags for dogs which are exact replicas of the owner’s chosen bag from a range of partner brands. Destined to make even the most fashionable dogs more fetch.
Prices for the bag packages, which include the owner’s bag and the replica version, range from US$507 (RM1,654) to US$5,119. — AFP/Relaxnews
