We’ve hunted down some interesting toys and gear for the world’s most adventurous pets as well as those suffering from a streak of total boredom. But today LazyPaw Animal Hospitals is profiling the holy grail of pet product categories—the chicest, and sometimes most ridiculous, toys and more for pets who know how to redefine what it means to be spoiled.
Bling doesn’t begin to cover it.
Dog and cat lovers with cash to burn can spring for the real diamond deal when it comes to showing off Fido and Fluffy’s style. If your credit limit is sky high, you too can spend as much as $3.2 million for La Collection de Bijoux’s “Amour, Amour” crocodile leather collar studded with dozens of carats (nevermind that pets are just as happy with treats flavored with carrots). If diamonds aren’t your style, you could also go designer with this $345 Louis Vuitton collar, but hey—if we’re on a spending spree, why not add the $2690 monogram dog carrier to match?
Pet houses worthy of their own address.
If your pet is so pampered that a regular cat or dog house won’t do, what about a custom chateaux? Celebrity-praised La Petite Maison claims to make the most luxurious dog houses in the world, with custom playhouses for your pet that can suit any style. The Georgetown model has two balconies sized for teacup breeds, and the Mediterranean has iron-inlaid doors and a red ceramic tile roof. Cats are in no way excluded from the luxury market; Martha Stewart once featured this six-foot cedar cat tree that costs almost $500, and for $1200 this “lifelike” tree house can be your cat’s new favorite play place.
A paw-sitively cool iPad app.
Your kid may be asking for an iPad, but tell them they have to learn to sacrifice—kitty needs her very own to play with Game for Cats, an iPad app that mesmerizes kitties into swiping paws across the screen as they wonder what the little red light or mouse character will do next. If buying a cat her own iPad seems outrageous, remember that the app is still free.
Time to drop a few pounds.
If your pet needs to whip themselves into shape, walking is so pedestrian. Starting at $500 for the smallest size, you too can help your pet put their best paw forward on a mechanical treadmill. These dog treadmills even have a metal eyelet for you to hang a motivational toy, although it’s one Fido may never be able to catch.
Think these toys are out of this world? We agree. Next time on the blog, we’re coming back to earth with suggestions for fun, simple toys you can make at home for a buck or two. Now that’s more like it!
