  1. Torino Leather Dog Collar by MiaCara

This Lemon-coloured dog collar is a cut above the usual. Each one is made in Italy from Saffiano leather, and has contrasting outer edges that set the colour off. Nubuck leather on the inside means it’s extra comfortable for the lucky canine wearing it. 

2. London Carry – Leather Dog Walking Bag by Growlmama

Forget the days of stuffing treats, bags and toys into the rattiest old tote bag you can find. Upgrade your walks with this handcrafted leather bag, which has separate interior pockets to stash your essentials as well as enough room for extras.

3. Duo Dog Cushion by MiaCara

Pampered pooches will enjoy this double-sided dog bed, which can be flipped to reveal fabric or silky velvet. It’s minimal enough to blend into any house, and comes in a beautiful muted rose colour – perfect for 2018’s modern neutrals trend.

4. Tondo Ceramic Dog Treat Jar by MiaCara

If your kitchen doggie drawer is a stack of half empty packets, get things back in order with Miacara’s ceramic jar. Treats stay fresh, thanks to its silicon ring, and out of the way of inquisitive noses.

5. Heart Poop Pouch by Hiro + Wolf

Owning a dog requires a fair amount of picking up poop, and there’s not much you can do to make it any more glamorous. This heart-shaped pouch should help a bit though, giving you a place to stash those bags so they’re always within reach.

6. Palla Doy Toy by MiaCara

This handmade toy is made from strong fabric and has a dense filling that can stand up to enthusiastic chewing. It’s good for throwing, but also has some interesting angles that’ll keep your dog occupied on a quiet night in.

7. Ducky Donut Dog Bed by Charley Chau

This one’s for pups that like to snuggle. Its deep-filled mattress stands up to repeated use, and duck feather sides mean the bed can be plumped back into shape after naps. You can also take the removable mattress with you on trips.

8. Como Suede Dog Lead by MiaCara

Replace that ratty old lead with this dusky grey suede and nappa leather version by Miacara – which takes its cues from modern fashion trends. Sure to make your pooch the envy of fellow canines as well as humans.
