Would you spend $800 on a camper van... for a dog?

Luxury pet accessories are big business

Straight Line Designs' camper van for dogs

For the dog that has everything comes a new accessory: an $800 camper van.

Created by Judson Beaumont of Vancouver-based Straight Line Designs, it was inspired by a request from Judson's daughter for a new doghouse. The trailers come in four different styles and, says the company, are suitable for animals weighing less than 20lbs.

They're not the most practical of trailers, as they can't withstand the rain and may discolour in the sunshine. But they are fully customisable and, says the firm, make a perfect indoor kennel. The company says it can ship them anywhere in the world.

Luxury pet accessories are big business, fuelled by the fashion for so-called handbag dogs amongst US celebrities. A recent report from MTW Research found that sales of pet clothing and accessories will top £35 million by next year.

"According to Mintel's Pet Food and Supplies UK March 2012 report, 66% of pet owners say they 'treat their pet with as much care as they would a child', says Catherine Cottney of Mintel. "As a result, we've seen a blurring of boundaries as companies market to increasingly humanised animals."
