If you think you've heard it all when it comes to dog grooming, then think again.

Pooches visiting one salon in Barry, South Wales can enjoy a spa and walk-in wet room, a luxury shampoo and conditioning treatment, a manicure and a cucumber facial.

And if that isn't enough, these lucky pets can also dine on specialised dog food, doggy ice cream and cupcakes.

But pampering their beloved animals does not come cheap for most owners, with some spending around £500 in one go.

If that's not enough for their beloved canines, dog-lovers can treat their pets to customised collars and leads, fancy dress costumes and even a diamante harness.

The Pawfection Pet Boutique, which is owned by Michelle Inch, 25, also caters for cats and horses.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Michelle said: "Why shouldn't pets be pampered every now and then?"

We wouldn't mind being one of these pampered pooches ourselves!
